Elektron Octatrack | BREAK the 16s recording LIMIT!

video upload by Mamotreco

"Do you have an OCTATRACK?

Have you been frustrated by the default 16 second record limit? What if I told you, you can bypass it with a couple of button presses?

Let me show you how you can get much more time!
First Press FUNCTION + MIXER to access the OCTATRACK Settings
Press the Down Arrow until you get to CONTROL

Right Arrow and then Down Arrow until you get to MEMORY
Hit the YES button to see the MEMORY Options
Down Arrow to select DYNAMIC RECORDERS

Press YES to change the settings value to YES
Then Press NO to validate (I know it’s strange)
You will get warning about playback stopping and any unsaved recordings in the buffers being lost

Press YES to validate
Press NO to exit the OCTATRACK settings
And when you check it out now by pressing FUNCTION + RECORD 1

The recorder screen now says 396 seconds which is about 6 and a half minutes in 16-Bit mode, if your recorders are set to 24-Bit you will have less time but still way more than the 16 seconds we started with.
