About us

Tic Tic is a Norwegian duo of husband and wife. Electronic instruments form the backbone of our tracks. When present, vocals add a touch of melancholy. Our lyrics are often inspired by politics and global issues.

We have been making music together as Tic Tic since 2012. On this blog we write about the process of creating songs, and sometimes about various technical subjects related to the gear we use.

  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.
