With their wide range of inspiring and innovative gear, it’s no surprise that Swedish synth company Elektron has such a cult following. In this course, you learn to reach new sonic possibilities by combining the power of two Elektron units: the Octatrack MKII and the Digitone.
Thavius Beck is an electronic musician/producer/programmer as well as an electronic music educator who has worked with various artists ranging from Nine Inch Nails to Saul Williams to singer/songwriter Skylar Grey.
Elektron’s Octatrack is one of the most widely used hardware sample/sequencer, both on stage and in the studio. Combine it with the 8-voice FM synth Digitone and you get unlimited sonic possibilities. In this course, Elektron expert Thavius Beck reveals how to get the most out of these two units by operating them in tandem!
Thavius starts the course by teaching how to connect both machines and properly configure the MIDI and Audio settings to make sure everything works flawlessly. From there, you learn how to sequence your Digitone from your Octatrack, how to mix and match both sequencers, and how to sample your Digitone for sonic experimentation.
Next, Thavius demonstrates how to creatively rearrange the recorded audio with Record Trigs... all in real time! He also reveals tips about using the arpeggiator, resampling FX, creating fills & rolls with Retrigs, how to make an arrangement, and a lot more…
