The Elektron Octatrack Dynamic Performance Sampler is intuitive, powerful yet portable hardware designed to deliver flexible sampling, loop manipulation, effects processing and pattern sequencing for producers, remixers, live performances, DJs and more. The Octatrack reads samples from a compact flash card or USB 2.0 device, and features up to 80MB of internal RAM. There are 4 audio inputs for sampling from external audio devices and instruments.

The Octatrack's powerful engine is devised of 4 software "Machines" (Flex, Static, Thru & Neighbor Machines). Easily sync loops and samples to the sequencer's tempo, create swinging grooves, apply micro-timings, add real-time effects to grooves and more. The Octatrack is well suited for live performances, allowing for lengthy samples to be streamed directly from a compact flash card, while allowing for real-time pitch and tempo control.

The Step Sequencer features 8 recording tracks, 16 banks per project, 256 patterns per project, 8 arrangements per project, 4 parts per bank and 16 scenes per part. There are plenty of internal effects that include 12/24dB multi mode filter, 2-band parametric EQ, 2 - 10 stage phaser, flanger, delay, echo and much more. Audio signals from external devices may be routed through the Octatrack's effects engine. In addition Elektron includes a 2GB flash card loaded with a sample library courtesy of Loopmasters.

Octatrack OS 1.25 is a software download for all Octatrack owners that includes three new effects - a stereo image shaping Spatializer, a Spring Reverb, and a smooth and wide Dark Reverb.

    OMG I'm in love

    Comments about Elektron Octatrack Dynamic Performance Sampler:

    As a guy who states at computer screens all day, the last thing I want to see when making music is another monitor.
    Everyone says how tough this is to learn but I find it's design and OS to be very intuitive once you spend a bit of time playing with it.

    Comments about Elektron Octatrack Dynamic Performance Sampler:

    Created by a genus. Allows you the chance to never have to use mutes when jamming. Instead you use "scenes" making it super versatile and way more fun. The flex samples can be sent through a bunch of different setups that all get interpolated when crossfading. Super sick! Confusing to program but well worth it. It's like having a Super Multi-track Looper, effects processors, synths, and drum machines all in the same unit. Buy it now and improve your sound!

    Comments about Elektron Octatrack Dynamic Performance Sampler:

    This sampler is only limited by your imagination. The build quilty is far better than the MPCs, and the sound manipulation is stellar. I would say my only complaint is the shortcuts. There are just so many features that you need to learn a new language of shortcuts to implement these features. It would also be nice to have multiple outputs too, but you can use the cue to some degree. Overall you are not going to find a sampler that even compares to this. I also got a great deal using B & H. Buy it!

    Comments about Elektron Octatrack Dynamic Performance Sampler:

    I've owned previous Elektron products so I didn't have that difficult of a time getting going with this. The functionality of the Octatrack goes so deep that it would take a very long figure out every single feature. I love this thing so much. Everything i want it to do i realize it can do and usually very intuitively. Makes making sound so much fun and without the hassle of the computer that most of us have to stare at all day long already. LOVE IT

    Comments about Elektron Octatrack Dynamic Performance Sampler:

    I purchased the Octotrack for live PA service -- but was instantly impressed with its studio possibilities.

    Its time stretching/ warping power and effects combination allows you go places you would not have thought of otherwise. It will break through limitations you didn't know you had and entirely change how you work with, or feel about samples. Add to this its insanely creative sequencer and you'll be hooked!

    No mouse, no keyboard, just direct experimentation and aural bliss. The sound quality is great, the output loud and the feel of the knobs, buttons and fader perfect!

    One caveat is that there is a bit of a learning curve. This is an instrument after all. However, you'll be rewarded in ways I can't explain. You'll have to see, hear and feel for yourself.

    My music production sounds different than anything I had done before. I guess sometimes you have to get into a box, to think outside the box. Who knew?

    I would recommend this to a friend, but only a friend. You want your competition getting their hands on this!
