I am looking to acquire some Elektron gear. I hear Digitakt is a great machine, a beautiful monster of simple complexity - some say. Live work-flow, quick+easy uploads, and deep rich sound.
On the other hand looking at price points, and versatility, is there any benefit in purchasing the Model Samples + FM together vs only 1 Digitakt (which is beefy on its own)? I hear they feel much different, pads + knobs on the Models don’t feel as nice as the digitakt, yet, the workflow seems comparative if I were to use the Samples + FM together, and I would also have 12 voices vs 8. I plan on creating my own samples to load for this setup.
Is the sound quality almost the same? I know Sample duration on the digitakt is much larger, but I also heard somewhere you can expand Model Samples. Having the isolated FM options also appeals.
I play the saxophone + guitar + synth in live performance, and heard Analog mk2 is best for interacting with that, but, i can settle using delay + loop pedals for those. Im looking more for a complimentary system, and not a mastermind to control everything. I also have a keystep pro for mixing in my synths. The drums/rhythms are where I current lack. Elektron looks like the winner for my setup, just having trouble deciding which is best suited.
Any advice, or input is super helpful before I drop some coin on this gear. I am happy to see this forum exists!
