Using The Elektron Octatrack As An Acid Bassline Synth

In this Patchwerks video, synthesist Matthew Piecora takes a look at using the Elektron Octatrack as an acid bassline synthesizer.

The video is from a live stream for 303 Day, and the presentation starts at about 1:30 in.

Piecora demonstrates how you can use single-cycle waveforms and the Octatrack’s filter to make 303 style sounds. Unlike the original 303, though, the Octatrack is designed to let you create complete tracks.
