Considering switching to Deluge from Octatrack - Help needed :)
Hey Deluge Community!
A while ago I stumbled over this beautiful device, and currently I am collecting information if the Deluge might substitute my beloved-but-restrictive Octatrack. I read manuals and watched a lot of videos, could not find the right information, and before buying, I might need the help of experienced Deluge users and some confirmation or correction of my expectations:
How I use Octatrack:
// create sequences of 64 steps for both 8 audio tracks and up to 8 MIDI tracks for external gear
// create an arrangement, which links those sequences in any way I want (length, repeats, muted parts, ...) to have a "classic" song structure of Intro, Verse, Refrain, etc.
// play this arrangement, having Octatrack play back audio and control external gear via MIDI as defined in arrangement
// Permanently save the arrangement on a SD card
I expect that the Deluge is capable of:
// Having sequences longer than 64 steps and more than 8 Audio/Midi Tracks
Important for the arrangement is, that the Deluge has a comfortable way of defining and editing a song structure I like and save it for later use.
Can someone please confirm that Deluge is capable of doing so? If yes, what is your experience with it? Does it work like a charm or is it more workaround-ish to achieve whole songs?
Question for Mixing scenarios:
Given the above described scenario that a whole song has been created on Deluge. For Mixing purposes, I want to:
// Change the Snare Drum volume in the whole song
// Change the Snare Drum volume only in certain parts of the song
Is that achievable?
Many thanks in advance!
