About us

Tic Tic is a Norwegian synth duo of husband and wife, Irene Svendsen and Kai Drange based in Kristiansand, Norway. Electronic instruments form the core of all their tracks. Programmed patterns are combined with various expressive, electronic instruments for an imperfect, human sound. The melancholic female vocal tends to add a dreamy, atmospheric touch to the mix.

Their debut album is now close to being finished and will be released on vinyl, CD and digitally on Apollon Records. The first single, Autopilot, is out November 12 (2019), while the album is planned for an early 2020 release.

In 2017 Tic Tic released a five-track EP “Where do we go?” on Straight Up! Music (US).

  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.
