Description & Specs

The Octatrack MKII Anniversary Edition is part of the celebration of Octatrack and its release in 2010. Limited to 350 units worldwide, and featuring a striking combination of the aesthetics from the MKI and MKII iterations, the Anniversary Edition is loaded with unique factory content and artfully designed commemorative items. This is a special edition of an extra special machine.

From 2010 to Eternity
Since its first appearance, over a decade ago, the Octatrack has been mangling its way into the hearts and minds of live performers and audiences across the globe. Discovering the perfect sample is only the beginning with this 8 track dynamic performance sampler. Twist it, dismantle it, distort it, and carve it into something uniquely yours with a lineup of deep and creative features.

More than a sampler
This sorcerer’s box brings enormous sample processing ability to the table, offering deep and radical manipulation of samples and loops in both rapid and improvisational live performance, and meticulous composition. Wield the powerful crossfader for subtle, natural-sounding transitions or knock it back and forth for unexpected changes. The Octatrack redefines how you transform your sounds.
Hook it up and use as a small mixing desk for your whole setup. And use the sequencer to control both internal audio and external MIDI gear.

Prophecy sounds (CF Card & Artist content)
The Octatrack MKII Anniversary Edition comes with a custom designed 32 GB CF card, loaded with a bunch of additional and exclusive artist content to mark the occasion - only available as part of this limited run.
Over 700MB of new audio ecstasy has been specially put together with the help of serial, long-term Octafriends such as Andreas Tilliander, Skinnerbox, Jogging House, Headless Horseman, Inhalt, and Arc Rae.
Never-before-heard slices of time, straight out of the box, to build your own sonic prophecies.

Relics of the future (Artwork)
The Octatrack MKII Anniversary Edition box has its own distinct design, complete with a celebratory interpretation of the classic OT logo on a sturdy corrugated fiberboard exterior shell, ensuring everything slips together perfectly.
The interior box features custom artwork by Tokyo-based graphic artist m7kenji, showing a sweeping tapestry-like blend of Octatrack pixel graphics and other logograms, icons, and scripts. A full-size poster of this design is included as part of the package, ready to adorn any studio wall.

Sampling is the inception. The machine is Eternal.
Octatrack’s dynamic sampling powers have turned it into an industry standard across a wide variety of genres, changing the way gear setups look and giving artists the power to perform live in the truest sense of the word. Now with the anniversary edition, the toolbox has only expanded. More than ever, this is a machine to set your imagination free.

We're right off the CTA Brown Line 'Paulina' Stop Just North of Belmont and just West of Ashland.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, fill out the Return Request form below, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback. Please let us know your thoughts! If you have any questions, we’re here for you!
