Ive had my octatrack for a month now. I want to be able to play my music out and i have a whole bunch of songs I have finished on other equipment and had or am having released.
I have made 4 of my songs into patterns on the octatrack so far. The basic structure I have been using is one full length backing track, with three other tracks covering kick, bass and the main hook. I am triggering the backing track as a one shot sample so that the overall song structure is in place, then the other tracks loop in sync with various scenes set up. I have set up each of my songs as a separate bank with generally one part and one pattern.
The songs playback fine as individual patterns. The problem I have is how to transition from one song to another.
What happens now is the single shot backing track from Bank A Pattern 1 continues to play when i switch to Bank B Pattern 1, rather than the backing track for the second song getting triggered. the other looping tracks all change over OK.
Is there any way to overcome this problem?
Can i program a one off “arm all” message at the beginning of my second pattern in order for the second backing track to cutoff the first when i change patterns?
any help greatly appreciated!
