I bought a Digitakt to handle my drum things, as I had only an A4 and nothing else, and wanted to perform a live show… What’s written on it is that it’s a “Drum computer and sampler” so it was marketed as being able to handle all the drum things. But it also has a lower price tag than all the other bigger machines, so it appeared natural to miss some functionality.
I’m running the digitakt chained to the A4, so whenever I change a pattern on A4 the one on the Digitakt changes as well, what bugs me is that I usually leave the mixing part to the end, after I finish the track, I go thru my A4 and Digitakt kits and mix all the sounds. And it will be tedious to do that on Digitakt, my workaround is that I keep the drum pattern the same all across the song, I just mute-unmute, FILL, and use trig-probability to keep things interesting. But I don’t dare tweak the pattern to each A4 pattern cos that will make my life a living hell.
I’m sometimes afraid that Elektron is not adding functionality just to be inline with the price-tag, I really hope that is not the case.
