During our live performance we can record live audio directly into the Octatrack. Beside adding effects and setting additional triggers, there is another way to change and shape the recorded audio.
With combination [TRACK + BANK] button you’ll have direct access to the waves editor menu “Trim”. With Knob A (Startpoint) and/or C (Endpoint) you can trim audio instantly and hear the effect while tweaking these two knobs.
Instead of creating slices (it’s nice too), trimming gives you a new starting point in the sample very easy and very quickly.
