Device Details


Name | Version: Inner Ocean 4Trak 2.0
Author: peterbark
Device Type: MIDI Effect
Description: Inspired by tape looping and audio manipulation on a 4 track Tascam Portastudio, we present the Inner Ocean 4trak, a Max for Live Device that takes the workflow and analog sound design into the digital domain for Ableton Live users.

Designed and built in partnership with Peter Bark and Woulg, we spent over 2 years refining and perfecting this device until we knew that we had landed on something super special and unique that doesn't exist anywhere else. It's no secret we love all things analog, both in the music creation process and for listening formats. As creators ourselves, we wanted the sound and workflow of playing with audio on a hardware tape unit but with the convenience and expanded functionality of working in the box. With hardware tape units becoming harder to find and getting a lot more expensive, the Inner Ocean 4trak makes it super easy for any sound creator to start experimenting with tape loops.

Lots of fun. I'd like to see the possibility for longer loops - I hope you guys keep developing this - nothing llke it!
I would like to be able to set up crossfades for loops. These clicks are annoying. Reminds me of the problem with loops in OP-1... On the one hand sometimes I like these clicks, a bit raster-noton style, but that in this case I would like something closer to tape loops with real cassette tape, more analog and less digital sound.
And I know that there is a sliders for 500ms fades, but I think it does not work quite as I would like, some clicks occur completely unpredictably, maybe it is not the loop itself, but some failures during the recording
