I like FM synthesis and so am interested in getting the Digitone but I’m not sure how much new it would bring to my current setup. For FM sounds I currently use Monomachine, Reface DX, Electribe VPM and if I need more, add in a Volca FM. As far as I can tell the Digitone would add the following:
Sound locks - great but I don’t tend to use them really. They’re good for adding drums etc if using very limited gear but I’m not so wouldn’t use them much.
Filters - My current FM synths either have filters already or I can patch them through an Analog 4 and use its filters on them.
Conditional trigs - don’t use them much but again can already use them to a limited degree patching FM synths through the Analog 4.
So am I missing anything? The Digitone sounds like a nice 4op FM synth with a great sequencer which would certainly be nice to have but not sure it would add that much to my current setup - thoughts?
