Damn! Someone went and mentioned an OctaTrack!
I've money burning a hole, abstinence from my gear and I'm trying to work on some personal issues - an OT sure seems sweet right now!

Sorry, mate! Laughing

It works for me because I can generate quite a bit of noise (most of which is pleasing noise) all by myself, and it all seems so fresh and inspiring to me. Here's a recent improvised jam with it. While my inner critic says is mostly nonsense, the last 3-5 min. of this jam left me very pleased and excited to play some more with it next time - that's the feeling I love, and it seems to be independent of what specific gear one has:

It's left my various hardware synths feeling lonely and unloved, but I'll work them in eventually.... slowly though....

lol, it's cool man - I've just been trying to control myself as there's so many things I could blow this money on but I'm trying to make it through a period of time where I'm thinking of only buying items to a % value of the money I have.

Feeling so stumped at the moment, I fear I'll impulse something (however cool) and then the honeymoon phase will end and I'll be miffed at a perfectly good piece of kit.

Just, no matter what I read, I can't seem to find anything too bad about the OT... The Elektron learning curve, I'm already in love with the Elektron way. My only concern is that I feel I can do a lot of what OT does in Ableton Live/Maschine (this is what I tell myself at present...)

It's OK to hijack my own thread isn't it?

You might have a lot of fun trying, and maybe discover some inspiration, excitement again - that feeling that I just mentioned in my previous post (which I was updating while you submitted a new post Laughing ). That feeling is the main thing...

Credit card read this, ran away and is now cowering underneath the sofa as it can sense the abuse coming Wink
