I own a Octatrack and a Monomachine. The MIDI sequencers of both machines are Not exactly the
same. The monomachine isn't able to record MIDI Note length and Velocity.
The Octatrack can do this. Octatrack has the biggest Sequencer i ever worked with.
Very Easy to Programm. Stephan length is max 64 Steps, but you can chain Patterns.
You just have to press the Buttons from the Patterns you want to chain.
You can chain as much Patterns as you are able to press the Buttons. Behause you Need one Finger to press the "Pattern" Knob you Seouls be able to activate min. 9 patternbuttons. Maybe you are able to press 2 Buttons with one Finger....
BTW, next Big Thing is that you can edit the length of each Pattern for it Self. So it is possibleto Run
A 64 Teppich Pattern with half Speed. I Think it Seouls be possible to Play it with 1/4 Speed (im Lying in my bed and im to Lazy to go in my Studio and have a Look on it
You have a stallet Resolution of notes then but sometimes i dont Need a High Resolution of note Grid.
Short, the Octatracks Sequencer is really Great!
I Hope you Unverstand everything i try to explain, im from Germany. My englisch isn't Perfect.
At Last, monomachine and machinedrum are synth with sounds inside.
The Octatrack is an Sampler, Not one Sound in it...
8 Sampler Slots, 8 really Great MIDI Sequencer Slots.
Hope that Helps. The Octatrack is the Heart of my Setup. Midi Master.
I really like it.
