I got the digitakt yesterday and as far as sampling and sequencing samples it's pretty easy.
The negatives: no slicing, no warping, no time stretching. It's super basic. The stock sounds are lame.
I also don't quite understand the midi sequencing yet. Conceptually, it seems like it treats the midi tracks exactly like the sample tracks. So, I'm worried I wont be able to midi sequence melodies That aren't chromatic or notes outside of the 4 note capability which seem more like chord stabs.
My 1990's roland mc50 had better midi sequencing.
Also, it seems this machine will not untether you from ableton live because of the lack of time stretching or lack of slicing. That is sad.
I wish the OT wasn't so difficult to do simple things.
OT is the far superior machine.
I'm afraid thie DT is an entry level elektron machine.
I do like ehat I made up on it.
