I am considering buying a DIGITAKT as a midi sequencer for creating patterns and song sequences with the SPDSX as both my input (creating beats) and output (the sequencer triggering sounds in the SPD-SX and playing them through the output of the SPD-SX).
So to clarify, I’d like to:
•play a drum part on the SPD-SX,
•“record” the midi with the DIGITAKT to create real time patterns which I can then quantize.
•create step sequenced songs from those patterns on the DIGITAKT
•hit play on the the DIGITAKT and have the sounds come back out of the SPDSX.
Is this an incredibly complicated thing to do for someone with very minimal midi experience?
Is the DIGITAKT a bad choice for creating songs in this way? I’ve been using an old boss DR770 to create step sequenced songs for almost 20 years but never in collaboration with a pad (although I’ve always fantasized about it and now I have an SPDSX!) and I feel like the DIGITAKT may be the right upgrade for this.
If I were to do this, where would I begin and are there any tutorials on how learnt the process of how to do something like that?
