One of the most interesting and individual pieces of Equipment from recent years, Elektron's OctaTrack has been getting some great reviews:

*Sound on Sound*
Today the Octatrack offers a well-matched set of tools for sampling and resampling, for combining samples - even tune-length ones - and bending them into crazy new shapes. Whether for live or studio applications, this self-contained chunk of hardware can take you in places a mouse and monitor won't.

*Future Music*
Either for studio-based production or for live performance, the Octatrack is an incredibly exciting tool. (...) We're convinced the Octatrack will change the way a lot of people create and perform music.

The Octatrack is a sampler where every knob, button and menu fills a purpose and this clearly shows. The workflow is extremely quick and pleasantly encourages experimentation. The Octatrack is a product that brings the hardware sampler straight into the current age.


If you watch the Video for this product (it's a little slow to start but bear with it) it'll show you how much fun you can have with a simple looped sample - it only deals with about 5% of what the machine can do but still....gives you a flavour.  You could probably get signed to Planet Mu just by recording the output of this You Tube video and sending it in as a 128k demo.
