This is a fan/user-posted YouTube tutorial course on the Elektron Octatrack sequencer/sampler. It's intermediate level in that it assumes you've read the manual, know some basics, and still have questions. It's fast-paced and smart, unlike many narcissistic how-tos-but-this-is-really-about-me-and-my-wonderful-hands-turning-knobs-on-this-fabulous-gear-I-bought that can be suffered within the YouTube swamp.

Most gear demos don't ask why, as in, what type of music are you making, who is your intended audience, is this just an advertisement for a commercial product, might someone's "workflow" include other things besides this gear, what is a good mangled sound vs a bad mangled sound, is all this complexity about avoiding cliche, is power-sucking equipment a luxury that only one generation will possess on a widespread level, what happens after six years when the battery in this machine runs down and the manufacturer has "moved on," why this piece of gear as opposed to a thousand other gimcracks available for home electronic music makers, and so on.
