I can’t lie—I’m getting pretty excited about the inevitable “is the Octatrack still worth it in 2022” thread.
Mostly I’m looking forward to the greatest hits: aren’t those old effects terrible? Isn’t the sound quality just awful? Should I wait for Octatrack mk3? Can you even buy a CF card any more?
And then there’s the opportunity to relive @sezare56 showing us how to do literally anything with a flex machine
Good times! I have an alert set for 12:01 on Jan 1st.
The thread feels already obsolete…
We can make it short : yes the effects are still awful, yes sound is still not top notch, no I would not wait for mk3, yes you can buy them but they are expensive.
But this is still a fucking great machine in 2022
Is anyone working on the “Octatrack in 2021 - Year in review”?
You’re only making it more difficult for users to orderly complain. I mean, if they’d complain in any of the 2021 threads, they might have to face the “Is my complaint still relevant in 2022?” question, which might make the effects sound even more dull than they did already last year.
Feels like a collapsing universe.
While we were focusing on OT a “MnM in 2022” post just slipped passed us!
Is this thread worth it in 2022?
As long as it still sounds flat and boring in 2022 I’m definitely keeping mine.
Can someone link to some @sezare56 ot content?
I bet some youtuber is already prepping their succulents, action figure and thumbnail in readiness
I‘m still a OT defending Elektron fanboy in 2022. Love me some shitty converters. Nostalgia rules
OT users will be very happy.
cause they have an OT.
[related side note] we really need a more extensive merch store.
(but I am very unlikely to start youtoobin’)
I’m still waiting for the DT firmware update that turns it into an OT. They just don’t want to cuz they’re greedy.
What about the…
“I’m done with Elektron, I’m gonna sell the gear the I bought, that’ll teach em!”
