Anyone here using an AR2 with Digitone? I’ve seen plenty of DT + DN setups, but I don’t think I’ve seen anyone with AR + DN.
I picked up my AR2 a couple of months ago and fell in love with the Elektron workflow. I’ve realized I ran out of voices to do a proper live techno set from the AR2 alone even with sound locks and DVCO (and don’t want to touch samples too much), and am exploring the DN as a slave to the AR2. How seamless is the project/pattern switching and MIDI sync/transport between the two?
Additionally, I’ve got a fair amount of experience with Operator and FM8 - a lot of the early criticism was that it was essentially Operator in a box, yet a lot of the DN sound demos I’ve heard sound much fuller and… Just overall much better, especially in the mid highs, than I’ve seen achieved with Operator. Ignoring the obvious fact it’s got the elektron sequencer and workflow, how’s the “Operator in a box” comparison holding up sound wise?
