Elektron has released two brand new Sound packs for the dynamic performance sampler Octatrack. Here's their description of each plus some sound samples:
The Sound pack Caught on Tape: 808+909 shows that classics never go out of style. The Roland TR-808 and TR-909 are legendary drum machines, cherished and praised for their sound and percussive abilities. Goldbaby has pulled out all the stops and carefully recorded these revered machines using an Ampex 351 1/2" valve 2 track tape machine. The result is warm, round and beautifully saturated analog sounds - perfect sample material for the Octatrack.
Octa Pak: Volume 5 - House is essential for producers looking for soulful beats and sounds. The Sound pack is custom built for the Octatrack by the sound creator overlords at Loopmasters and is chock-full of samples ready to be used and abused. Get ready to dive right into the Chicago nightlife!
The Octatrack DPS-1 is an 8 track dynamic performance sampler. Each track offers real-time time stretching and pitch shifting, making the machine ideal for radical audio processing and live oriented sampling.
