    Hi,
    can anybody explain me how I can transpose a Track or a page with notes in it using an external keyboard (and not the pitch knob)?;)

    Transpose

    Hi now I know it: B) Press Record, Press the Track or page button and than transpose with your connected keyboard. B)

    I found this great thread on SOS where Bill Williams (of Zyklus fame) and Stephen Kay (of Karma Fame) have a flame exchange on each other technology.

    Thought you might have been interested.

    Thanks a lot – very interesting indeed and a worthwhile reading (if you can call that a forum these days) !

    Check out page 101 of the manual – toggling pages using external program changes. That may be what you are looking for.

    Nice to see the Zyklus/Improvisor concept caught up attention overhere. If those ideas could get a place inside the Octopus then my dreammachine has arrived.

    ive mentioned it a few times . . .the ability to Start and stop individual tracks via midi note on and off messages and also transpose the selected tracks at the same time . . . sounds simple but allows the user to create polymorphic ideas to then record into another sequencer or even back into another octopus track . . . i know the Octopus can change pages via program changes ? but it cant start and stop tracks via midi note on and off messages ? or can it ? been looking :) and hoping :)

    Matt, thanks for your patience – and sorry for the lag in replying.
    I will take it up and evaluate ways of making muting note bound, as opposed to program change bound. Since keyboards don’t usually have more than 88 keys, one solution would be to assign channels to each bank (e.g. 1-9) and then use the appropriate octave keys (labeling on the top) to select the page to be toggled.
    Let me know what you think – anyone ??

    really like some of these remote control ideas…I’d like to have more ways in which the Octopus can cannibalize itself.

    Press and hold the PAGE button (in the MODE block) and press the REC button to enable the page record mode. If you now select a track or more (hold it selected, or lock selection, whatever you prefer), play a MIDI note into the MIDI in and that note will be taken over as the track pitch for the selected tracks.
