The Octatrack MKII brings enormous sample processing ability into a machine designed for live performance. It redefines how you transform your sounds, as well as how you interact and play with them. It lets you do things that were previously impossible with a single instrument.
Natural born performer
Record samples in real time. Add live time-stretching and pitch-shifting. Use the sequencer to control both internal sounds and external MIDI gear. The Octatrack MKII can also be treated as a small mixing desk for your whole setup. The immediate control makes all the difference.
The crossfader adds immense depth to your sound. First, choose how you want it to affect your samples. Then nudge the crossfader gently for the most subtle and natural-sounding changes – or knock it back and forth like you’re scratching for rapid and extreme enhancements.

In 1997 a handful of students at the university of Gothenburg in Sweden made their first prototype of a synthesizer, based on the sound chip found in the Commodore 64 home computer. The finalised prototype became a marketable product, which made the name Elektron known all around the world. From the highest-standard engineering through the solid industrial design to the sheer time and care spent testing each individual instrument before shipment, quality pervades every Elektron product - and that is to say the least.More Elektron products
