  1. Hi, thanks for creating Octachainer. I started to use it recently with Octatrack mkll. Problem I ran into is that slices are not correct. They seem to be evenly distributed, not to zero crossing, which means samples are badly cut. Also the Audio doesn’t play. I seem to be the only one having this problem? Do you have any idea why is that?
    Windows 10/64bit. Do you prepare your samples in Ableton and then slice?

    1. I’m unsure what the problem could be. All you need to do is:
      1. Load two or more samples of different lengths into octachainer
      2. Copy the generated .ot file and .wav over to the Octatrack

      The two most common mistakes are either to not copy the .ot file (it is the “metadata” file the Octatrack uses for the slice data, BPM, loop points, etc.), or to try to create the slices again on the Octatrack.
