RE: A new piece of music, 80BPM ambient guitar

Thanks for listening and for the positive response...
I'm controlling the OctaTrack with my hands most sampling/recording is done with sequencer recording trigs, that means that I can set up the octatrack to start recording a given number of beats on any step of the recorder, if i thing it ha captured something of value I turn of the trig before the sequencer gets to that step again.. This means that i don't need to synchronize my recording manually. As soon as I get time I will start to experiment with MIDI, but first I will try to learn this very fun device a bit more. It is also GREAT fun to use the cross fader.

That's cool Anders. When your doing the guitar looping are controlling the Octatrack with your hands or are you using a midi foot controller?

As usual using the Elektron Octatrack as "looper", I'm "cheating" on this one as one of the track is a kick drum sample that i pitch shift and reverse and the more..
All else is live sampled (looped) guitar as i go along - Live Improvised Looping (or sampling). One track uses and LFO to pitchshift, kind of kool.. a few sequencer stuff is used to pitch shift, adjust playback speed and apply effects..
I REALLY, really like the OctaTrack, it's a truly unique piece of gear, an instrument in it self.. try one !!!

Please give me some feedback and feel free to ask how I use the Octa.. 

All the best to you all,
