交通システムが3Dになるには空飛ぶ車で上に行くか、トンネルで下に行くかしかない。空を飛ぶ車に関しては技術的には実現可能でも騒音と車を持ち上げるために必要な風圧の問題がある。トンネルは100層にもできる”

Lies My Teacher Told Me: the author on the biggest American history falsehood - Vox
I’d go back to 1892, 400 years after Columbus is said to have discovered America. If you looked around the world at that time, white people dominated most of it. The big lie is our failure to ask how that came to pass. We simply assumed that we dominated because we were better, or smarter, or worked harder.

So much of what has passed as “history” since has been invested with white supremacy, even though the reasons why history unfolded the way it did are extremely complicated and have to do with luck, and geography, and all sorts of factors that aren’t captured in our oversimplified narratives.

We never seriously asked the question, and so white supremacy became the default answer. What could be more consequential than that? […]

I actually think our situation is far worse than it was in the past. For example, our federal government, under Nixon and Johnson, lied to us about the Vietnam War, but they never made the case that facts don’t matter or that my facts are as good as your facts.

They assumed something had to be seen as true in order to matter, so they lied in order to further their agenda.

Trump has basically introduced the idea that there is no such thing as facts, no such thing as truth — and that is fundamentally different. He is attacking the very idea of truth and thereby giving his opponents no ground to stand on at all. That’s a very dangerous road to go down, but that’s where we are.

The Octatrack Tips & Tricks Thread
Looping transition trick (via crossfader or parts). Constantly record your music, and then switch/fade from "live" to "Recorded" then segue into a new song. Or constant overdub mode as you see fit

---

when you are recording thru the OT's inputs, try and get the level meter right below clipping if you can-- basically yellowish. and always normalize yr sample after recording (and make sure "gain" is set to 0.0 dB in audio editor attributes). this should give you the most possible headroom when constructing patterns.

---

I finally started playing around with the Retrigs, Sample Start, and LFOs as described in this old thread:
http://elektron-users.com/index.php?option=com_fireboard&Itemid=28&func=view&id=170081&catid=9&limit=10&limitstart=0

The little twist I put on this was:

1. Pickup Machine on Track 1
2. Flex Machine on Track 3, sample slot set to Recorder 1 (Track 1's recorder)
3. Record loop on Track 1
4. On Track 3, assign LFO1 to RTIM and LFO2 to sample start, LFO wave set to Random for both.
5. On Track 3, set FX to Comb Filter

---

The arranger is an awesome tool to play live. Don´t think on it as the Ableton Live arranger where you basically use it to define a structure.

The OT arranger is more like "scenes" on Ableton Live, you can create loops, jumps, offsets, mutes, etc. You can create rows to set a suggested pattern order but then you can choose when to jump to a particular row. Also, you can leave and back from/to the arranger seamlessly.

You can define which OT Scenes will be selected for a particular row. You can use REM rows to have labels so you´ll know what is what, useful if you need to learn a lot of patterns, relations, sequences etc.

The offset can be very useful. You can use the Offset parameter to convert 1 pattern into several virtual patterns, this is useful especially if you use loops.

Let's say you have 2 samples of 4 bars each that represent part A and B for a song. You can use a single pattern to hold both of them on a single track and then use the arranger to choose which one will play and when.

- The key is to make an 8 bar pattern then put sample A on the first half and sample B on the second.
- Then on the arranger setting an offset of 0 for that row/pattern will play A, and an offset of 64 will play B.
- The key for this is to use per track scale and set for the track that will play A and B a Pattern Scale of 64/64 1/2
- This will make that track twice it size but you won´t get extra steps, there always will be 64 steps max, so to achieve that, the steps for that track will run at half the speed. That means you loose resolution but that doesn't matter for this track. This track only needs a single trigger on the very beginning to trigger a sample.
- So render A and B to a single Wave, so bar 1-4 is A and 5-8 is B, then create on the OT a 2 slices sample.
- Place a trigger on step 1 playing slice 1, and 1 trigger on step 33 playing slice 2. Because its speed is the half, Step 33 corresponds to step 65 at normal speed.
- If you press play now you will see that for that track the step will reach step 32 and then will back to the beginning (I assume you have the master length to 64).
- Now place that pattern on the arranger as a row with a length of 64 (and 64 repetitions to keep it playing)
- Pressing play now will play A
- Now in the arranger duplicate that row but now set an offset of 64

If you press play now being on that row, all tracks will play starting from step 65. The other tracks will play step 1 because there is no step 65, but for the track that holds A and B there is Step 65, as a matter of fact, it is the step "33" the one that holds B. So You will listen to B variation of this loop

Having this two rows on the arranger allows you yo jump from one to another whenever you want, so this way the arranger works as a helper and not as a structure ruler.

Note that you can set a Scale of 1/8, this means you can hold 8 sample variations per pattern, or even more using other tricks, like offsetting to a part that hasn't any trigger for that track will keep playing the last triggered slice.

Using this technique you can have full backing sons divided in "moments" and use the arranger to play them automatically or manually.
