I would not be surprised if Digitakt OB is a much bigger venture than so far revealed; particularly if there are alternative monetization plans with OB core features being ‘free’ whilst OB ‘daw features’ + store of expansions are charged for…
It’s a mini-DAW?
It hosts and freezes VSTs?
It samples, and has a fine zoom sample editor?
It has a piano roll and pattern editor for all trig attributes, and midi import/DT-export?
It has a store for expansion packs?
elektron are making a NI maschine-like ecosystem with the DT as a tethered hub that you can then disconnect from your PC and keep working on all your captured-to-project pieces?
