The Pickup Machines (for looper pedal style looping) did not exist in the Octatrack OS at that time - he had to record his loops using the manual and recording trig sampling methods. Here's his description from http://www.loopers-delight.com/LDarchiv ... 00208.html
With eight channels of sampling and effects and crazy crossfader and trigless trig stuff the Octatrack is a VERY diffrent beast.. Here I'm usin it as alooper of sorts, i sample and resample since it has eight track i can stack stuff and replace stuff and to somethings a looper cant... according to Elektron there will be a proper looping machine later this spring but what is there is deeper than most loopers or samplers and it can be used for live experimental looping, perhaps not as good for building live backings.... yet.. if you don't want youre backings to be experimental than it's GRAT
A soloway Swan Guitar into a V-stack Tweedy (amp sim) into Octatrack into recorder. No effects ot anything just "live" plying on guitar and Octatrack.. I had some stuff like pitchshifting, delays and more mapped to the Crossfader so i can kind of play the pitch on some of the tracks... COOL (might sound strange) some trigless trigs on some track to, among other thing, shift pitch, revers and stuff..
The OT VERY FUN to play with and sort of musical.. need to practice a lot more but there is potential in this machine...
THE "LIVE" guitar is a "through" machine I also use a trig recorder to pitch shift the live guitar with trigless trigs.. (in left chanel)
Note that he is talking about advanced usage of the Octatrack, beyond my current skill level. I particularly like the 2nd half of the track, when you can hear the layers of craziness add up. I can imagine running Voyager audio into the Octatrack, then having the Octatrack sequencer play the Voyager over MIDI, which in turn changes the audio behavior...
