Elektron tells us that the black Octatrack MKII is now shipping. They say that this new black casing, plus a refreshed print design, gives you two Octa options when picking which version of the 8 track dynamic performance sampler to bring into your setup: black and gray.
A spokesperson told us, "The Octatrack MKII redefines how you transform your sounds, as well as how you interact and play with them. Discovering the perfect sample is only the beginning. Twist it, dismantle it, distort it, and carve it into something uniquely yours. Since its first appearance, over a decade ago, the Octatrack has been mangling its way into the hearts and minds of live performers and audiences across the globe. This sorcerer's box brings enormous sample processing ability to the table, offering deep and radical manipulation of samples and loops in both rapid and improvisational live performance, and meticulous composition."
