Digitakt Unofficial Guide

Close steps can be crossed in timeline with inverted microtiming settings.
Can be convenient if no place before in grid to put a Lock.T that avoid the next with a PRE false COND.

ILfo going out of sync at max positive speed. Several technics to fix it, and this one is known by most elekton users.

Set the bpm mult one up and lower the speed to 32.00

Hope it’ll help mewones and some that want perfect timing in positive speed, without retriggering the lfo with trig locks or tweaking with negative speed, negative depth… as the result could be different than what searched depending lfo waveform

Fkin A for the kill with this one

Any chance we can get this as a google doc that can simply be updated by all, so we have a printable document… rather than 100+ addendums?

If not, I’ll spend the time to do so and link anybody interested to the .doc — once I have some time.

Thanks in advance!



Do you have to hold down the STOP button while pressing PLAY? Thanks so much!

This is really good. Will be testing in a bit. Great tip!

Could not find it here, so I post it (possibly it is already somewhere)

If you would like to have 12 trigs over one measure of 16 steps, you have to use this microtiming settings:

2 + 3/128
3 + 3/64
6 + 3/128
7 + 3/64
10 + 3/128
11 + 3/64
14 + 3/128
15 + 3/64

I.e., you can copy/paste:
2 -> 6, 10, 14
3 -> 7, 11, 15


This might help with understanding some trig conditions

RIP… :slight_smile:

Didn’t see this in here already… time table for the LFOs that was posted on the Facebook group


Very nice
Edit reason :noice

I found it alot easier to try another trick i found on here somewhere.

Set lfo rate to - 64 and sph all the way up.
When you do this your bpm multiplier tells you what rate you are at. 8x 8th note 16x 16th note etc


Hi - new here - I have a question about CONDITIONAL TRIGS - is it possible to use a trig condition to change the note tht is being played - say, changing a G to a C on bar 3:4, for instance? Or is it, as I suspect, only for the actual triggering of the sample? (To clarify, either playing or not playing a sample, not changing the value of the sample)

No you cant set a condition for a note change. Only the trigger itself

You can put the note that you want in the next trig and then use microtiming to get them very close together. It works just fine this way imo.

If you don’t mind a little bit of preparation, you cam make your loops 30 1/16ths long (by adding silence or repeating nearly the whole loop in a DAW/editor), meaning that the 1/16th’s fall on 4.0, 8.0 etc which are the increments accessible by holding down the encoder and turning it. This means you can more easily create “random” rearrangements by just pressing and holding the start time encoder, not having to worry about getting it dead on a certain value.


Yes, it’s possible, I do this quite a lot…

just enter the trig at “3:4” and parameter lock it to a C. then place a trig next to it (i mostly use the trig right next to it), also put a parameter lock “NOT pre”, leave it on a G (or Parameter lock it to whatever you like) and use Micro Timing all the way to the left.

EG I want to start my pattern with a G, but every third time a play a C, i use the first trig with the “3:4” - condition (parameter locked at G) and the second trig for the “not pre” - condition with the C. Micro timing is needed because you want it all to start on the first trig, right?
