Version 1.2 OS adds a looping facility among other things 22/05/12
Elektron has released OS 1.2 for the Octatrack. This major OS update adds, among other things, the Pickup machines. Pickup machines make the Octatrack function as a looper. Record, overdub, loop, reverse, time stretch and pitch shift loops on the fly. Automatic sequencer to loop sync makes it easy to blend pre-programmed Octatrack patterns with recorded takes. Elektron say that Pickup machines are great tools for guitarists, beat boxers, DJs and in general anyone wanting to experiment with loops.
To celebrate the release of the OS 1.2, all Octatracks sold and registered until the end of July 2012 will come with three sample packs, assembled by audio content creators Loopmasters. The Octa Pak bundle is specifically made for the Octatrack and normally retails for 120 USD/90 EUR. Pricing and Availability:
Octatrack OS 1.2 is available for free download from the Elektron website.
