Big ol’ mix n’ match running with everything.
There’s the dual midi outputs of the Octopus, the MPC1000, the Machinedrum all running into some Kawai midi routers. They have sliders to manually switch what is running to what.
When I record midi from the Octopus, I’m running into Ableton Live, or I’ll run it into the MPC1000 to capture it to tracks in that box for further funking around with.
Like Gabriel had mentioned in his workflow, sometimes it’s individual tracks, sometimes full summed chunks. Lots of audio from the outboard gear being recorded that way as well. Some of my most enjoyable and weird soundstuff and funk comes from just recording stereo wav files while the machines are running and I can jam on the Octopus.
Then I cut it up like an old tape reel.
