This album is dedicated to the moment I stopped screaming at the Octatrack manual and watched a bunch of instruction videos on Youtube instead.
So, my thanks to Cuckoo, Ron Cavagnaro, Max Marco, Loopop, Ricky Tinez, André Neumann, Kenny Zhao and Dataline.
Apparently many people use this to make dance music. I found that you can give each of the eight tracks a different time signature, so these wobble along in a decidedly unstable manner. You might need to get drunk to dance to it…
