hello fellow elektronauts
since i am trapped like so many of you for the foreseable future i thought i will share a little MIDI tool i have made for the digitakt/digtone with you. (if the midi mapping of the digitone keys is identical, you can use it too)
the long story short… about 18 month ago i bought a digitakt and set on a course to build an audiovisual workstation. i figured the way to go is hooking up the digitakt with a software called touchdesigner and use the digitakt as a “jam-able” midi timeline, that makes sound as well.
(fyi. My professional background is 3D and Animation, not Audio )
The digitakt turned out to be a very good choice for a controller. i bought a digitone a couple month later and now everything is hooked up and ready for a little showcasing.
i decided to call this project - shiptrap.
The idea behind this setup is that everything gets wired into the PC and i use Touchdesinger to rewire, link, analyze and trigger… a lot of things.
Here is how i have everything wired up:
Have a look at this video(20 minutes) to get an idea of what i can do with this setup:
0:29 - Hardware setup
0:52 - Overview MIDI Mappings
3:46 - Linking DT parameters to DT parameters
6:20 - Linking DT parameters to DN parameters and back
8:50 - LFOs and Tables
13:41 - Parameter recording
19:35 - Externals

for the mapping files you have to download the release.
there is a bonus item txt file with a download link
all the best
