Digitakt tutorials


Does anyone know of some good Digitakt tutorials for a total beginner?. I’ve been through a couple from Cuckoo, but wondered if anyone had came across anything else handy.




I’ve made a couple of Digitakt videos… Just check out the rest of this playlist.

…and if there’s anything in particular you wanna know - ask!


I have found that I feel like less of a beginner when I watch Cuckoo’s videos more than once. Pressing pause, rewinding and repeating sections again is a good thing. It’s also helpful that recent longer videos are arranged in chapters.

Sometimes it takes 2-3 times before I fully comprehend what’s going on, but hey, that’s all part of the fun of learning.


Is there one specific to the LFO/Master sections? I have my head around everything but that!





I am a first time Digitakt user, just got my machine and I noticed you said in your video, that “anything after bank A is untouched territory…” Why does my brand new machine have presets programmed all the way up through the end of bank B?
Thank you,


If you are talking about the locked preset bank I think there was originally 16 patterns but after an update another bank was added.


Thank you, that is relieving. It’d sucked if I’d gotten a used machine.


I had an early edition and recorded my videos before actual release. Things have changed. To the better! :slight_smile:


I didn’t know about some additional factory presets ! I’m interested as they might be instructional. Where could early Digitakt owners find them ?


I think every new OS update updates also the factory presets. No (Elektron) child left behind … :wink:


Just a minor hint, because it seems you got this mixed up in some of your posts: there are to kind of banks: pattern banks and sound banks.


Not on my Digitakt. :confused: Just the few presets from the beginning in the bank A. Maybe having custom ‘Sounds’ saved in the bank A or B prevent from adding new ones during the OS update ?


That may be the case. I would ask elektron support about this.


Yep, I’ll do that then. Thank you!
