Elektron Octatrack DPS-1


What is a Dynamic Performance Sampler? It is an all-in-one performance module featuring real-time sampling, an 8-track sequencer, built-in effects, time stretching and pitch scaling. That just scratches the surface of what this feature-packed steel box can do. Check out this new video to see the Elektron Octatrack DPS-1 in action.

The top panel layout has a wealth of buttons and knobs, allowing immediate access to all of the Octatrack’s functionality. Audio can be patched in via two stereo inputs, or recalled from the onboard Compact Flash reader. Connect the balanced outputs to a mixer and prepare to be impressed.
