The Elektron Octatrack DPS1 MKII Dynamic Performance Sampler and Sequencer takes over from its predecessor with an improved, enhanced and modified engine that makes it more powerful than ever before. In the studio or on the stage, seamless tactile control over your sound in a must, and it doesn't get much better than this: powerful sequencing, real-time audio processing, instant stereo sampling, built-in FX control, 8-tracks, use as a standalone performance unit or as part of a wider rig - the possibilities are limitless.
Flawless multi-track performance
The Elektron Octatrack DPS1 MKII Dynamic Performance Sampler is equipped with eight audio tracks, as well as eight MIDI tracks, that can be used simultaneously in any of the 256 pattern slots available. A generous 64 steps per pattern means that you can create and playback entire sets without any other equipment.
Tactile control at its finest
The team at Elektron have clearly and methodically laid out the control interface in an intuitive way, allowing your creativity to flow. The crisp 128 x 64 OLED screen gives ready visual access in the most dimly lit environments. Dedicated controls make it easy to perform rapid changes on the fly, and the real-time audio processing is the stuff of dreams. The durable back-lit buttons are rated to take 50 million presses, whilst the contactless crossfader guarantees a smooth playing feel.
Your audio, revolutionised
Thanks to the generous audio and MIDI connectivity, you can capture audio or data from just about any source. Breathe life into your old vinyl and digitize your catalogue. Thanks to the easy editor abd OLED screen, you have clear visual control over trimming, loop point handling, normalization, splicing, and time stretching with impressive efficiency.
For MIDI control, you can use the power of the 8 MIDI tracks, each with their own arpeggiator, a trio of assignable LFOs, and two pages of CC parameters. You can even custom draw your own LFO waveforms for a sound that is completely unique to you.
Real time effects
A huge collection of inspiring effects are ready to add finesse or meltdown to your music. The Elektron Octatrack packs in flangers, phasers, compressors, EQ's, delays, reverbs and much more. Each of these effects can be applied to your track, or to any single step for some completely unique soundscapes.
