Here's a simple approach to on-the-fly sampling. The flexible Octatrack treats loops with 100% in-sync elasticity. You can pitch shift them and change the tempo of the device, but everything will remain strictly in place. What's more, you can mold single sounds into practically any shape imaginable with the Octatrack. Assign any parameter you want to the optical cross fader for precision control. There's even a flash card and USB port for massive storage or fast file transfers. Do all this and much, much more with the Octatrack from Elektron.

8 track dynamic performance sampler
The Octatrack MKII brings enormous sample processing ability into a machine designed for live performance. It redefines how you transform your sounds, as well as how you interact and play with them. It lets you do things that were previously impossible with a single instrument.
Natural born performer
Record samples in real time. Add live time-stretching and pitch-shifting. Use the sequencer to control both internal sounds and external MIDI gear. The Octatrack MKII can also be treated as a small mixing desk for your whole setup. The immediate control makes all the difference.
The crossfader adds immense depth to your sound. First, choose how you want it to affect your samples. Then nudge the crossfader gently for the most subtle and natural-sounding changes – or knock it back and forth like you’re scratching for rapid and extreme enhancements.
