A Bad Live Jam with the Octatrack

A Live Jam

I had all kinds of ideas for how to use the Octatrack, and it's pretty cool, but it requires a lot more setup than almost any other piece of gear that I own and that really slows me down from making a song in a couple of hours.

For this one, I'd need:

1) A way to better include melodies. I live-recorded this one but then wasn't cognizant or comfortable enough to record a different one.
2) Better drums.  I took some that I had already sampled in the past but they aren't really suited for the track.
3) A little more organization with the scene effects.

There's a million things I need to fix with this but I'm super tired right now and want a break! Will try again next week.

And maybe the panning needs a tweak as well.

Yeah, I realized after that I had set up the Octatrack samples incorrectly, and they ended up being stereo files with only one side recorded, which (obviously) messes things up. Got that fixed up this week though.
