Sampling the effects sends

Can you sample/resample only the outputs from the effects sends? It’s pretty core to my workflow to send kicks through reverb/delay effects chains, then sampling the output to generate rhythmic subbass for techno tracks. octatrack(when I had one) had the ability to use a neighbor track as the sample input and the benefit was 2 fold, 4 effects units to use and could isolate to record the outputs of the neighbor track. Is anything like that possible on DT?

Yep, DT records the master output I’m pretty sure so you can capture the effects

Yeah, I know I can capture the master, but the problem there is I’d be recording the kick AND the effects. I’m trying to see if I can sample just the effects so I can have separate tracks for kick/sub bass.

Also bear in mind that anything resampled is in mono so you lose the stereo fx :frowning:

Thanks for the heads up, I’m aware and am fine with losing stereo effects, the rhythmic rumble is the important part.
If I can’t isolate the effects sends to sample, the answer might be to get another OT!

I don’t think you can , unless the drum effect is after the actual sound ( like a delay of reverb etc )
You’d need to then trim it.

I’ve recently been using my octatrack , very nice to have stereo though I prefer digitakt ping pong delay.

That sounds pretty interesting. Could you please elaborate how exactly you resample FX only on the Octa? I just use it as a mixer and sequencer for my other synths and I haven’t use it otherwise yet.

Basically you just use the insert effects on 100% wet on the kick, use as many neighbor tracks as you need to get the desired sub rhythm, sample 1 bar of that super effected kick, then remove all the effects and neighbor tracks, assign the recorded sample to a new track and layer with the original kick drum.
