Note you can also play your MIDI instrument using trig mode “Chromatic” and you can assign MIDI CCs to to the data entry knobs thereby making Octatrack a controller.
This was my first time using Octatrack with an external MIDI instrument and when I was setting this up I couldn’t’ quite figure out how to turn the “on” the data entry knobs once I configured them to a MIDI CC. This video will save you a lot of time in learning how to set up Octatrack for MIDI sequencing including activating data entry knobs.
