Whenever I look into this subject, the consensus seems to be that the Digitakt is better than the Digitone for sequencing external MIDI gear. Everyone lists the higher number of midi channels (8 channels on the DT vs 4 on the DN) and the higher polyphony (8 voice on the DT vs 4 on the DN) as the main advantages.
However, I never see anyone mention the one area that Digitone has Digitakt beat by a mile - the note button. It is so much easier and more fun to step sequence a pattern (or to edit a recorded pattern) by being able to see exactly what note is sequenced to a step right there on the chromatic keyboard.
I don’t understand why this never comes up in discussions on this topic and I think some newcomers are being mislead to buy the DT to sequence midi gear.
Am I missing something? Does anyone else agree that the DN is a more robust machine in this regard?
