Digitakt OS 1.11, Digitone & Digitone Keys OS 1.21

Got it - thanks

Would like to see a few of those other features find there way to digitakt also, but hot dang a nice update. Using a chromatic mode for playing sound locks instead of notes as an option per track would make live drumming in patterns on single tracks a possibility and personally it seems silly the synth unit got this feature before the drum unit, I suppose digitakt does have more tracks to work with so maybe it is less of a necessity. Portamento would be great also… I mean who doesn’t like playing some slippery slidey samples chromatically.


Don’t own a Digitakt or Digitone, but I really appreciate the continuing updates. This is one of the things that makes Elektron machines extra special. Keep it up :smile:


No, it was made by @ufuk actually!
Or well, I did make the Digitakt/tone graphic that is from the OS. Not the Keys one though, that’s made by Andreas H. Lots of pixel talents around, hehe.


Wow, exciting stuff! and unmentioned above is that LSB is now supported on the DT too and fixed on the DN which is what I’ve been hoping for. Scale per track is simply fantastic news. Really looking forward to playing with this at the weekend. Thanks Elektron!

A post was merged into an existing topic: Digitakt 1.11 : Bug reports

I successfully set up sounds and recorded some finger drumming in multi mode on the Digitone. This is going to speed up my workflow a lot, to be able to just play basic drum grooves, then tweak and embellish. I like it that I can use the 8 multi mode slots to easily set up different kits.

While I was at it, for fun, I routed the MIDI from some procedural generator rack extensions in Reason out to record on the Digitone, all nicely synced. Worked like a charm and seems like a fun way to auto-generate pattern and starting points, especially for ambient stuff.

Speaking of ambient, different time scales for each track is a beautiful thing. I’m going all Vangelis over here with just a single pattern.


Sysex Dump and Receive works on the Digitakt now (it used to not work for the 1.11.6 BETA)!


As I sat, admiring this fine work of pixel art, I realized something… 1.5 octave DN Keys confirmed!


The arpeggiator did not play notes in the correct order in Cycle and Down modes.

:smiley: holy shit! when I made a too-big post whining about this in the feature request thread, I wasn’t expecting it to, y’know, actually get fixed in a few weeks

It is now possible to live record sound slots when in MULTI MAP mode.

I feel heard and cared for. What is this? I’m not used to getting that… this feeling, this power, to be able to rant about UI issues and workflow things and have reasonable fixes turn up in patch notes, quickly? The power might go to my head. I could get used to this.

It wasn’t like this with the Korg (electribe 2) or with Pioneer (Toraiz SP-16)…

So, uh, thanks Elektron! I’m excited to get home and try it out.


It’s in the Global settings menu. See page 72 of the revised manual.

Master Tune adjusts the reference tuning frequency for the whole instrument. The modern convention (and therefore the default setting on the DN and other electronic instruments) is to set the frequency of note A to be 440 Hz.

You might adjust this reference frequency if you wanted to get the DN in tune with an acoustic instrument or other sound source that can’t be retuned so easily.


wow, just updated… the sound reload feature is really great.
you can morph the track beyond recognition, then reload specific tracks from the original temp saved track, and keep adding them (I think it reloads from this location, not sure if it’s from the pattern save)

This update !

Yeah, Elektron really slapped the watermelon on this one!


I have been trying to do this for a while now - can you explain your inspiration?

Which part? The finger drumming or the recording MIDI to the DN out of Reason?

Awesome update, the scale per track was much needed. Time to hook up my Blofeld to the DT again and make those looooooooooooooong pads I wanted.

@andreash :wink:


Great updates :heart_eyes:

That pixel art gif sure would make a great screen saver! Just sayin :rofl:


Great update, same than the last one for Digitone, love randomize, scale per track…

For me it would be perfect if we could decide if the pattern keeps the parameters saved or if it only keeps the sequencer. For this reason I cannot use pattern chaining at all due to the unwanted parameter jumps, and I have to sequence the Digitone from the Octatrack.

Is the strange pattern change behaviour for the DN and the DT fixed?
