Ok! Ill buy the octatrack but can someone just tell me if i do is there a chance i could release a record on a known label? Just be straight up with me... Is there a chance?!


Of course there is, It's not the tool it's the musician. I'm going to say one thing though, it's not going to be the deciding difference and it might even hinder you from making what you want to make.


I am a HEAVY octatrack user, but I feel like the more I tend to get down in the weeds with the OT, the less prolific I am.

Truth... it's so easy to get sucked into tweaking FX, LFO, retrigger parameters for hours instead of doing anything remotely musical.

I won't get to try the USAMO properly until tomorrow but I got it set up, activated (offline activation was smooth), saved a track template that was gainstaged correctly (at unity gain my interface was too hot for it to work even with the trim turned all the way down, but lowering the track fader 7db was all it took to get it working consistently) and sent some clock to the MIDI clock analysis in the MidiGAL.





Best MIDI clock timing I've ever seen in software or hardware.  So far so good.


EDIT: this thing works really well, I'll probably get a second one this summer. Only complaint is it doesn't ship with a power supply.

I finally broke down and ordered a second hand Push version 1. I figured I at least got to give it a proper try before I start yet another thread on some obscure Live MIDI mapping problem.
