    Product Description

    Here's What Elektron Say About the Octatrack MkII

    8 track dynamic performance sampler

    With the Octatrack MKII, discovering the perfect sample is only the beginning. Twist it, dismantle it, distort it, and carve it into something uniquely yours.

    More than a sampler

    The Octatrack MKII redefines how you transform your sounds, as well as how you interact and play with them.

    This sorcerer’s box brings enormous sample processing ability to the table, offering deep and radical manipulation of samples and loops in both rapid and improvisational live performance, and meticulous composition.

    Sampling is the inception

    Record samples in real time via any of the Octatrack’s varied source options. Connect directly to the four inputs, resample an internal track, or pull on the main and cue channels.

    Then trim, time-stretch, and pitch-shift your audio nuggets into the perfectly sized loops, one shots, or slices for your composition. And do it all live.

    Audio mutate. Audio mutilate.

    The powerful crossfader adds immense depth of control. Choose how you want it to affect your samples. Then decide how you want to wield it. Set up assignable scenes to each side of the crossfader. Toggle between them, or morph from A to B.

    Nudge gently for subtle, natural-sounding transitions or knock it back and forth for extreme, unexpected changes.

    Colossal sound sculpting

    The Octrack MKII is a machine with enormous sound design capabilities. With three LFOs available for each track, as well as a LFO designer, there are deeply customizable wave-weaving possibilities at your disposal.

    You can also assign two insert effects per audio track, offering a vast selection of reverbs, filters, phasers, and plenty more to play with. Utter audio manipulation has rarely been so varied or so much fun.

    Pillar of performance

    The Octatrack MKII can be treated as a small mixing desk for your whole setup, making use of the unit’s configurable two stereo inputs, and main, cue, and headphone outputs. Then connect external MIDI gear and let the machine orchestrate proceedings via dedicated tracks. The immediate control makes all the difference.

    And with the game-changing Elektron sequencer, you can lay your ideas out with absolute control and ambition unlocking depth. Command both internal sounds and external gear with the same level of razor-sharp precision.

    The machine is eternal

    Since its first appearance, over a decade ago, the Octatrack has been mangling its way into the hearts and minds of live performers and audiences across the globe. Its dynamic sampling powers have turned it into an industry standard across a wide variety of genres, changing the way gear setups look and giving artists the power to perform live in the truest sense of the word. More than ever, this is a machine to set your imagination free.

    Inspiration dynamite

    The Octatrack MKII comes packed with grade-A factory content. Nearly 5 GB of loops and one-shots by Origin Sound, Loopmasters, Sample Magic, and Samples from Mars ensures creativity right out of the box. Have a listen on SoundCloud.

    Not for the faint hearted! I've had this for over a fortnight and still have so much to learn. This is an intricate and complicated machine, the only limitations I've found so far are my own knowledge of it. If you're looking for a drum sampler I would check out the digitakt, but if you're looking to upgrade your live setup I can recommend 100%.

    Serious piece of equipment... Learning to use it is a work in progress, and probably will be for months to come! It has so many potential uses in a set up.

    Well packaged and in perfect working order. Patience and a methodical approach required to orientate with this product. Sounds great. Is currently fulfilling exactly the role I bought it for, but have no doubt there will be many more ways to put it use in the future. A keeper product.
