How many Octatrack effects are too many?

Synth & Sundry

"Welcome to the Octatrack Thru and Neighbor machine neighborhood. Watch in shock or awe as I pile on the effects one after the other with the quintessential Elektron box. I started off with an innocent sound from the modular rack and then the mayhem starts.

How I sample synths into Octatrack ... without unplugging anything!

"This shows how I've set up my music studio to send audio seamlessly to the Octatrack thanks to the RME Fireface UFX. I can send audio from an external synth or several and/or also audio from my computer be it from a DAW or even from a browser!

I have the Fireface UFX connected to my computer via a USB C to USB B cable in order to avoid having to rely on a USB C hub for audio connectivity. The Octatrack gets its audio from the RME via a pair of balanced cables (though the Octatrack inputs are unbalanced) and there's still a second pair of inputs I could use if I wanted to separate my routing a bit more. However for now I'm happy with just using one input pair on the Octatrack since I mainly use it for music production as opposed to as a live electronic performance hub."
