My Digitakt arrived half way through a couple of half finished projects and so far I have just mangled samples with it, recorded them to audio and added them to my project. I would like to incorporate the Digitakt far more going forward including the sequencer but I have no desire at all to replace my DAW. I have come to the conclusion over the years that I arrange and finish things quickly and easily with a DAW and I just don’t with hardware sequencers. I do love hardware sequencers for creating stuff and as a change from being 100% ITB.
So my plan is to write with the Digitakt and hardware synths including Plocks etc. and then record the whole lot to MIDI in the DAW, delete all sequencer data from the Digitakt and then trigger everything including Digitakt samples and Plocks from the DAW.
So my questions are,
Will this work as I describe?
Is there a better way to do it?
How are you using Digitakt in conjunction with a DAW?
