8-Track sampler with real-time pitch scaling.

The Octatrack is an 8-track performance sampler. Recording of sounds is a breeze thanks to the intuitive user interface, but the fun really starts once the samples are inside the machine. All audio content can be heavily processed and radically transformed. Loops do not have to be restricted by tempo or tone and can always stay in sync no matter if they are pitch shifted or if the tempo of the sequencer is changed. The inflexible nature of samples is finally a thing of the past.

For the Producer
With the Octatrack you will be able to treat samples in radical ways. You will appreciate functions like changing the melody of certain sections of a vocal sample without the sample going out of sync. The extensive audio mangling capabilities paired with the user friendly interface make the Octatrack an outstanding studio tool.

For the DJ
Thanks to the immediate real time sampling function of the Octatrack you can sample your turntable and instantly play back the recorded loops. Add effects to the captured audio and use the sequencer and the assignable optical crossfader to really add a twist to your set. The Octatrack can be regarded as an extremely flexible second turntable.

For the Performer
Each of the eight stereo tracks can stream gigabyte-large samples which is great if you need backing tracks during a live gig. All samples can still be subject to time stretch and can of course also be processed by the effects or rearranged by the sequencer. The Octatrack is the most capable performance instruments available.

  • Instant sampling and remixing
  • Radical audio manipulation possibilities
  • Real-time pitch scaling and time stretch
  • Next generation Elektron step sequencer
  • Dual assignable FX per track

Music is more fun once you get your hands on it. Order Elektron hardware instruments today.

    Comments about Elektron Octatrack DPS1 Sampler:

    This is a rather intimidating machine due to what seems initially complex and the price tag. The OT is 100% worth the investment and after a week of use, I am already very fast and fluent in the functionality and control. I am using it control 5 table top synthesizers as well as laying down drums and slicing samples.

    This machine is my favorite piece of hardware.

        Comments about Elektron Octatrack DPS1 Sampler:

        Awkward but pretty precise. Sound quality isn't amazing. Once sounds have been timestretched there are definitely artifacts left over. it has lots of character. colors you sound very much like older equipment. this is a piece of equipment that wouldve been released by older, now defunct brands, such as E-mu or ensoniq. everything it does can be done on a computer with very basic software. I much prefer hardware, so it suits me perfectly. it is smaller than i expected.
