This metic­u­lous lit­tle beast is much more than just your run-of-the-mill MIDI sampler – the eight-track dy­namic per­for­mance unit makes it pos­si­ble to han­dle tasks for­merly thought to be in­con­ceiv­able with a sin­gle in­stru­ment. De­signed for rig­or­ous use on­stage (its ul­tra-durable back­lit but­tons are rated for 50 mil­lion presses), users can record sam­ples in re­al­time, add live time-stretch­ing and pitch-shift­ing con­trols, and use the se­quencer to con­trol both in­ter­nal sounds and ex­ter­nal MIDI gear.

Plus, the Octatrack MKII dou­bles as a minia­ture mix­ing rig for your whole setup – per­fect for ex­pe­ri­enced mu­sos look­ing to re­fine their setup, but an all-out game changer for be­gin­ners. Fea­tures in­clude a depth-en­hanc­ing con­tact­less cross­fader, sharp OLED screen for dimly lit en­vi­ron­ments, pre­cise and hi-res en­coders, and bal­anced au­dio in­puts with all the head­room you could ask for.
