I here what ya sayin’ but to me a big part of what gives the digitone its character is when sweeping through the defined ratios. It’s very musical. With other FM synth it’s not as jolly.
Maybe a cool feature would be to be able to scale the ratios differently for a different character of sweep and fine tuning… but boy howdy this is by far my favourite synth out of all the hardware and software stuff I’ve tried. Sometimes when there’s a parameter you can just end up tweaking it for the sake of it and if I couldn’t get a good sound out of the digitone I’d be right there on the frontline with ya, but a dog educated by a monkey could make this thing sound great, fiddle with all the encoders into random posotions whilst throwing it down the stairs whilst jumping out of a window and it still sounds great.
Personally I’d like it limited even more by reducing the relative amplitude of the operators because I’m don’t like the clipping noise edge some folk like with FM and I never use the detune so… I guess that’s me.
Also expect some bias, as this is an elektron forum and some of us are still all amped up from defending the digitone keys to strangers on facebook.
