cool nice stuff ! like how bangin it is…oo and the acid
Thanks, this is a video version:
Would you mind posting the SC link please ?
Weird, for some reason I couldn’t find you on SC…
And still can’t.
Thank you for the link
enjoying this with my morning coffee, thanks and well done
Some great grooves in here!
i’m new to the OT so i want to ask you some questions.
how do you connect all your devices?
TR-8 -> OT (Input C/D)
TB-3 -> A4 -> OT (Input A/B)
OT -> ZOOM H5
OT works a A/B mixer?
OT works with sample chains as 2nd drum, hithat, FX …?
T1 = ?
T2 = hihat
T3 = hithat/rimshot (loop ?)
T4 = ?
T5 = cymbals
T6 = percussion/FX something ?
T7 = ?
T8 = Master
can you explain a little bit please. i like your sessions and workflow.
Thanks, here is how I connect everything:
A4 -> OT (A/B)
TR-8 -> OT (C/D)
TB-3 -> TR-8 input
OT -> ZOOM recorder (using headphone output)
OT main output -> external mixer and speakers
OT master clock -> A4 -> TB-3
TR-8 is not synced by midi. I bit match it with OT.
Now, the Octatrack:
T1 - Flex, sample chain, sub bass / low toms
T2 - Flex, sample chain, hi hats
T3 - In this session I have Static sample chains with percussion loops
T4 - Flex - recorder for (mostly) A4
T5 - Static, sample chains with cymbals (on other sessions I use hits and short samples from other synths)
T6 - Static, lead loops (sample chain) - main sounds
T7 - Static, chain with short samples, I trigger them manually during set
T8 - Master
One important note is I don’t switch patterns on OT, I just fade in/out samples and loops.
For me OT is a performance sampler, not a DAW.
TR-8/TB-3 and percussion tracks on OT are programmed live during a set.
thanks for the quick answer, but two things are not so clear to me.
why don’t you sync the TR-8 with MIDI? do you like it if the beat is a little bit offset?
how do you do this fade in/out and did you do it for each track (T1-T7) ?
Scene A (AMP page knob “F” XVOL to “Min”) - Scene B (AMP page knob “F” XVOL to “Max”).
while the fader is on scene A you change the sample and then you slide back to scene B with the new sample, is this correct?
I don’t sync TR-8 with MIDI by various reasons:
- In the future I want to create a live setup with 2 independent audio sources and mix with external mixer. This way if something goes bad I can restart a machine, reload a project, etc. without interrupting a music.
- Not syncing everything gives a more life and human error to the music.
- I have a DJ background and beat matching don’t bother me at all.
The scenes you described are correct, however I mostly use low pass filter instead of volume level.
interesting way to do and it sounds great
I already recorded second live set. This one is more minimal:
i was stupified when it ended. like the music had always been there and then it stopped. i will proceed to replay. thank you.
my favorite so far. lots of good grooves.
really nice and well done!
