Thavius Beck is an electronic musician/producer/programmer as well as an electronic music educator who has worked with various artists ranging from Nine Inch Nails to Saul Williams to singer/songwriter Skylar Grey.
The original Octatrack quickly became an industry standard for sampling and sequencing, both live and in the studio. Now, the new enhanced MK2 version takes the art of sampling one step further! In this course, producer and trainer Thavius Beck takes a deep look at the Octatrack MK2 and explains how to best use this marvelous piece of music technology.
Thavius starts with an overview of the Octatrack's structure, where you learn about projects, banks, patterns, track machines, etc. Starting with a fresh template, Thavius dives deep into sampling. You discover how to record, edit and slice your samples, how to automatically find the BPM of your loops, and how to do step & live sequencing. You also learn to create interesting and unpredictable patterns with Elektron's sequencer condition options, how to do live looping, resampling, and more!
So join Thavius Beck in this 19-tutorial course, and see why the Octatrack MK2 sets new standards for sampling!
Elektron 203 is a superb online course! it it exactly what I needed to get started with the Octatrack. It couldn't be better...every euro worth it! I will definitely check out the other Octatrack courses by mr Beck. Wonderfull, for al beat makers, technorubbers, sample freaks who bought the Octa...go spend 30 dollars en watch this course!!!! I'll rate it 6 stars...I\ll give it an eleven instead of a 10.

Loved this course! Solid overview of the Octatrack's different machines and packed full of ways to get the most out of the hardware. Love the many, many clear demonstrations of the parameters that can be tweaked.

Elektron's machines are so versatile, but can be pretty intimidating to new users. These videos have helped me understand the capabilities of the octatrack without the frustration. I would reccommend this to anyone that wants to take their level of production with elektron's machines to the next level.
