I am hobby musician who mainly play around in Bitwig and Renoise. I own a Drumbrute Impact and think it’s incredibly fun to play around with, and want to make a setup I can jam on and potentially play longer sets with.
I am going to buy a main sequencer for the setup and a synth, and am considering either a Digitakt or an Octatrack for this. However I have some questions regarding this:
- Digitakt can I send through audio and record it with Overbridge, or will I need an audio interface for digitakt + drum machine + synth? Is it possible to use send-FXs with this audio?
- Octatrack has more FX and a compressor, will using Overbridge and a software compressor be easy to setup for processing and potential side-chaining? (maybe it’s possible to fake side-chaining just with parameter locks)
- How long sets can you play with just sequencing patterns and using mutes on the Digitakt? Is Song-mode on the Octatrack worthwhile if I want to play 40 min sets?
