You can use your Pisound box to manage files on the Octatrack

It’s a very obvious one, but it took me some time to realize how obvious it was! :slight_smile:
I have a little problem. All of my “live” gear is set up in one corner of the studio, while the DAW is on the opposite side. Being my Octatrack part of the live setup, I always had to move it to the computer desk to manage the samples on it.
But no more!
Since the Rpi/Pisound is also part of the live setup, I just connect the USB cable from the OT to the Rpi and can move files around via SCP (I use Filezilla). Works like a charm!

Here’s the commands in case you also need this:

Connect to the RPi via SSH
then input the following:

sudo mkdir /media/usb
sudo chown -R pi:pi /media/usb
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/usb -o uid=pi,gid=pi

Of course you can substitute “/media/usb” for anything to your liking, eg. /media/ot-cf

To unmount just do

sudo umount /media/usb

Gonna do this over the weekend - very excited.
