Octatrack users - collected tutorials and tricks

I thought it'd probably be useful to collect a few how to's amongst the OT users on the forum. Help post up some tricks you find useful. No basic tutorials (Cuckoo made a few really good ones), but the sort of more intricate performance oriented ones.

Here's a few useful ones:

beat repeat

transition trick - good for changing patterns on the fly

I'll keep adding, hoping that others may chip in.

Re: Octatrack users - collected tutorials and tricks

^ those were quite good, helped me out for sure when I first got the octatrack. Now I am worried I won't remember anything on it!

Re: Octatrack users - collected tutorials and tricks

I dont know about you others but my manual for example got some pages missing.

Firstly the possibility to play "Live" . So you can play notes and alter trigs live after pressing rec+play.

Another good button combo is scale+rec/play/stop, it copys and pastes pattern trigger info. As Func+Rec/play/stop copys and pastes the track in total (for example from one pattern to another)

If you have other gear MIDI sequenced by Octa you do not actually have to dig the other gear manual MIDI sheet (Like i did ), instead of that you can just make Octa midi learn the function you want to change on external gear.
1) FUNC+click any of the six data knobs to make it listen to CC changes made in the external gear
2) Touch the desired knob or button on external gear

Hope it helps
