Thavius starts the course by going over the Octatrack’s hierarchical structure, where you learn about sets, projects, patterns, banks, scenes, parts, and the different machine types. After covering Elektron’s outstanding step sequencer, Thavius dives deep into sampling, editing, timestretching and slicing audio. Then, you learn how to add depth to your sound with the built-in effects and LFOs, how to do resampling, and how to twist (or completely destroy) the audio using the crossfader. But the Octatrack is not for the studio only… In this course, you will also find lots of useful tips and tricks for performing live!
So sit back and get ready to learn everything about Elektron's Octatrack, and see why this instrument is Thavius Beck’s favorite piece of gear! Read More...

This course was fantastic. It explained and cleared up many issues I had come across while trying to learn the Octatrack and incorporate it into my setup. Thavius is a great instructor and keeps these lessons organized and to the point. Wish I would have watched these when I first bought this thing, it would have saved a lot of time and frustration!
After taking this course I was able to navigate my way around the octatrack with ease and began to make music almost immediately. Along with the manual and merlins OT guide I find the videos very helpful to come back to if I get stuck. Thavius beck is great. Highly recommend for new octatrack owners.
Great tutorial, rich content, and well-structured. Got me to grips with my Octa quick.
Thanks Thavius! Great Tutorials...its coming straight from a musician and tech pro...let me discover and Save Time on elektron gear even further
Great tutorials from a very likeable tutor. I just got my octatrack and I'm learning the ropes really quickly from watching this stuff.
Great tutorial Thavius! I wish I'd have had this when I first got the Octatrack, I would have learnt its capabilities so much quicker, possibly would have saved me 6 months of very slow learning. This has helped me see things a lot more clearly though now, so all good :) Perfect tutorial structure as well, the info really sinks in well. Cheers!
Brilliant!!!! Thavius Beck is one of my favorite trainers at MacproVideo and this course nailed that position even more. He is guiding you through an extremely difficult piece of hardware (read:steep learning curve) - with ease and professionalism. Covering every aspect of what's under the hood. He simply "retriggered" my love for the Octatrack and the use of it in live-situations:)
