New features include one of the most advanced MIDI sequencing offerings to date. The eight dedicated MIDI tracks host assignable MIDI LFOs and customizable MIDI arpeggiators, allowing for both in-depth and experimental control of all relevant MIDI parameters.
The sound processing tools of the Octatrack, the Flex and Static machines, have seen improvements as well. The added parameters make it easier than ever to shape audio material in new and rewarding ways.
Apart from these two major features a lot of other things have been refined. The user interface has been tweaked for easier interaction with the machine, more flexible methods of sampling have been implemented and the new personalize menu lets a user fine tune several aspects of the Octatrack workflow.
