Making sample magic with the Elektron Octatrack MkII (live performance)

video upload by Jay Hosking

"For all the samples used here, plus the amazing community of musicians who made the sample pack, please support my work on Patreon:

A semi-improvised jam performed solely on the Elektron Octatrack MkII.

For our spring collaboration, my Patreon community and I put together our first sample pack, a collection of loops and one-shots for both melodics and drums/percussion. It's an incredible collection of over 250 samples, and to celebrate its creation, we made songs using the samples as our starting point.

Here, I started by taking my favourite loops and one-shots from the sample pack and turning them into a collection of perfectly sized sections for the Octatrack. Once I imported them into the Octatrack, I started mangling and developed scenes, transitions, and extra parts to fill in all the gaps. The Octatrack is the perfect device for taking an 8-bar loop and figuring out a way to get from the beginning to the ending of a song.

Thanks for listening, and I hope you check out and use the sample pack for yourself."
