The Octatrack MKII Anniversary Edition is part of our celebration of the game-changing 8 track dynamic performance sampler, and its release in 2010. Limited to 350 units, and featuring a striking combination of the aesthetics from the MKI and MKII iterations, the Anniversary Edition is loaded with unique factory content and items. This is a special edition of an extra special machine.
The Octatrack MKII Anniversary Edition is available at elektron.se and limited retailers.
Since its first appearance, over a decade ago, the Octatrack has been mangling its way into the hearts and minds of live performers and audiences across the globe. Discovering the perfect sample is only the beginning. Twist it, dismantle it, distort it, and carve it into something uniquely yours with a lineup of creative features.
This sorcerer’s box brings enormous sample processing ability to the table, offering deep and radical manipulation of samples and loops in both rapid and improvisational live performances, and meticulously constructed compositions. Wield the powerful crossfader for subtle, natural-sounding transitions or knock it back and forth for unexpected changes. The Octatrack redefines how you transform your sounds.
Hook it up and use it as a small mixing desk for your whole setup. And use the sequencer to control both internal audio and external MIDI gear.
The Octatrack MKII Anniversary Edition comes with a custom designed 32 GB CF card, loaded with a bunch of exclusive artist content to mark the occasion – only available as part of this limited run.
This new audio ecstasy has been specially put together with the help of serial, long-term Octafriends. There are over 700 MB of additional samples supplied by Andreas Tilliander, Skinnerbox, Jogging House, Headless Horseman, Inhalt, and Arc Rae.
Never-before-heard slices of time, straight out of the box, to build your own sonic prophecies.
The Octatrack MKII Anniversary Edition box has its own distinct design, complete with a celebratory interpretation of the classic OT logo on a sturdy corrugated fiberboard exterior shell, ensuring everything slips together perfectly.
The interior box features custom artwork by Tokyo-based graphic artist m7kenji, showing a sweeping tapestry-like blend of Octatrack pixel graphics and other logograms, icons, and scripts. A full-size poster of this design is included as part of the package, ready to adorn any studio wall.
The Octatrack’s dynamic sampling powers have turned it into an industry standard across a wide variety of genres, changing the way gear setups look and giving artists the power to perform live in the truest sense of the word. Throughout the various iterations over the years, and now with the anniversary edition, the toolbox with which to let loose has only expanded. More than ever, this is a machine to set your imagination free.
