The Octatrack is now out of beta – Elektron has released v1.0 of the OS for the Octatrack DPS-1.
Here’s what they have to say about the release:
We have just uploaded OS 1.0 for the Octatrack DPS-1. It is the single biggest Octatrack OS update so far and greatly improves the machine.
The OS features our most advanced MIDI sequencing offering to date. The eight dedicated MIDI tracks include assignable MIDI LFOs and customizable MIDI arpeggiators, allowing for both in-depth and experimental control of all relevant MIDI parameters.
The Flex and Static machines have seen improvements as well. The added parameters and the enhanced slice functionality make it easier than ever to shape audio material in new and rewarding ways.
Apart from these two major features a lot of other things have been refined. The user interface has been tweaked for easier interaction with the machine, more flexible methods of sampling have been implemented and the new personalize menu lets a user fine tune several aspects of the Octatrack workflow.
The Octatrack manual has been heavily updated as well. All info about the new features can be found there. Also, be sure to read the release notes bundled with the OS download for a list of all changes. Download OS 1.0 and the new manual in the Octatrack Downloads section.
See the Elektron downloads area for the updated OS and documentation.
