At the moment I have a pretty simple setup, consisting of just a Digitakt, Virus C, and a Dreadbox Typhon. Digitakt is handling all of the drum duties as well as sequencing, which works well.
However I’m toying with the idea of adding a dedicated drum machine to the mix, mainly so I can focus on the sound palette of one box, as opposed to diving through thousands of samples. Digitakt would still be my sequencer while providing the odd melodic sample or 808 kick, etc, and Machinedrum seems like a natural fit since I used to own one and loved it.
One thing I’m confused about though is how sequencing would work. Obviously I can start and stop the Machinedrum by pressing play on the Digitakt, but what about when I want to jump to a different pattern/section? Would I have to organize and queue those up on each individual machine? Or is there a way to set things up so that when I change patterns on my Digitakt it changes on the MD as well? Any advice is appreciated.
