Digitone feature requests!


Prep for live perf by setting volumes ahead of time?
Pre-arrange transitions? I dunno.


So when will we get some glide @Elektron ? This is a great machine and it is suffering from some basic feats missing… This stuff has been here since the 80s… Gives us that sweet GLIDE! Can’t wait no longer. :smiley:


step / sound blend step.

so i could put a bass on step 1, blend on 2,3,4 , snare on Step 5 , and it would blend / slide all parameters over those specific steps.
probably the same as slide on the other boxes. i guess its also suitable to get note glide which has been often requested.

abillity to save specific step parameters as a new sound (i know its the same thing on most elektron boxes but i’ll try again)

a controller / performance screen similar to analog4

a new ‘envelope blend’ parameter so that instead of retriggering the amp envelope (causing clicks on some sounds) , you can define a way to blend in the attack of the new sound in conjunction with the release/previous envelope… this type of thing would keep the same amount of notes being played .
Could work on digitakt etc… its a new way of removing clicks/sudden changes in amp that i dont think ive seen on any mono / single voice device.


If I do live and I use externals midi faders to control the volume mixer, I won’t set volume ahead of time. I will see through the live if this time I want this song, or this, at this level etc…
If I do set the volumes ahead of time, then jamm, change them with external midi faders and change pattern, the faders won’t coincide with the desire level. Even worse, if any of these faders change by one value on the new pattern, the sound will appear at the midi level sunddently…

Basically this is problematic, mostly on the digitakt but the digitone too.
You can’t really do live performance with an external controller for volume.
This is not how a mixer should work at all, or at least have the option.

Moreover, you can already do that with the AMP volume… :confounded:

So why do we have a mixer that work per pattern when the AMP volume can already do that ? As I said, we should at least have the option to set the mixer.


That ‘blend’ thing is how it’s supposed to work with reset set to off - it’s supposed to pick up smoothly from the existing level. However it’s buggy at the moment, especially if you play the same note twice (the second note leaps to the max level rather than taking up from the previous level). It gets worse if you’re playing pads on several tracks at once as the voice sharing seems erratic. I haven’t tested this exhaustively yet (hopefully Elektron will soon).


Perhaps your live setup could benefit using a little mixer.


Ok here’s a wild one…

Drum engine (like on the MNM) can be used on the midi tracks. That would make it a complete and awesome fm groovebox…


perhaps these boxes would have benefited from individual outputs :wink: then a mixer suggestion would be more helpful in this scenario


Overbridge :wink:



Really hope to see this soon.


Retrig please. Was looking for it for ages last night having grown used to it on Octatrack - was quite surprised it’s not there already.


Would love
Slide/glide/portamento/glissando/legato, even if only for the midi sequencer
Sustain pedal support when transmitted via Midi in from another device


I’d like to edit a pattern while it playes another one.
And why in the name of love didn’t you made line out and headphone with two separated knobs arggggh!!!


yes, being able to ear a track only in headphone would be great.


  • being able to ear only in headphones sound previews (from selecting sound)
  • being able to set system wide default values (for midi channels / ports, for example)


I tought these things where options already implemented. ?? Didnt see a FUNC + Lock option, i just actually cant believe it?


Imagine the thing could trigger pattern changes from the sequencer, and you can have a conditional lock setting it off every n-th repetition. (: I’d prefer that to song mode, tbh. It won’t realistically, but changing pattern with via midi cc message is possible, soo why not internally.


The ability to rout the outputs of synthtracks to headphone out or stereo out . By panning you could then achieve 4 individual outputs .


It may be a stretch for the hardware, but I have two wishes for the LFOs.
-Two destinations for each would be excellent. In the analog four it’s super useful to play one parameter plays against another using one LFO.
-Pitch tracking LFOs, also like the analog four. This one seems particularly dsp heavy, so I’m not holding my breath for it, but it would be a total game-changer to essentially have operator control of any parameter that’s an LFO modulation destination.


plz make monomachine arpedgiator style! mnm arp much better!!!


Use MnM midi track arp on DN.
