First, I am really sorry if this has been discussed before. I have spent the last few weeks going though the awesome Octatrack archive, alas I haven’t found a definitive answer.
I’m a big fan of Elektron. I have the digitone and love it and have just recently sold my beloved digitakt because I have an Octatrack itch.
Alongside my digitakt, I used an SP404 for longer (stereo) samples. Which had been working really well for me. However, I love the possibilities that the Octatrack offers.
So I know that in theory, the static machine could very easily replace my sp404 for long samples, but can I resample internally from say Track 1 (playing a long static machine sample) to say Track 2 (or another) running in flex or another machine, so that I can have more mangle ability/flexibility? As an example say I have this musical number running from the static and I want to capture a snippet of the static sample to further mangle in another machine?
This sounds like a dumb question I know, but I would appreciate a definitive yes or no before I buy the Octatrack.
Also, for me personally, the Octatrack will be mangling samples I create in the box or have collected over the years. I will still be using live sampling with my other gear, but that is not my main focus.
Thanks to anyone who spends there time reading this and a bigger thank you if you take longer to answer.
