9

I bought the Octatrack with a very specific use in mind, to replace my laptop when playing live.  Even before it arrived I had read the manual and knew exactly how I was going to use it.  My loops were trimmed and prepped, I had a mental idea of the workflow I was going to use, and it only took …

Well, as I mentioned when I released my last song “TH1”, I’ve been spending a lot of time making music on the iPad the last few weeks.  Not just messing around and coming up with interesting sounds or grooves, but making serious music.  I figure if something is interesting enough to keep me working in a particular way for more …
