Introducing Digitakt

@AdamJay any news on that RYTM pack u mentioned?

All recorded.
Still compiling.

if its a chord you could change note 2,3,4 up an octave and it’ll do it quite quickly.
but if notes are locked then maybe you could try pitchbend , or tweak the synth you are triggering.

sloppy description incoming…

i dont own a nord drum but im considering one. im trying to figure if its possible to play into the digitakt sequencer from the pads, but then it should be midi sequenced… so as far as retaining the sounds/patterns played in, and NOT midi sequencing… well i dont get to play anything in from the nord drum pads without redoing it manually by sampling each instrument and the digtakt andusing its keys do i? any feedback is greatly appreciated… i used to be a drummer, so playing anything in will be VERY fast, but i dont want to run a leash to/midi sequence anything for live performance.

besides that, has anyone been midi sequencing a nord drum unit WITH the nord drum pads, playing into the digitakt sequencer?

as long as the pads on digitakt send note out messages, you should be fine, as you can assign note in values on the ND2.

albeit you won’t have velocity on the digitakt pads directly, you will have to sequence in velocity values after recording the notes.

in addition to velocity you will have CCs.

i use the extremely popular rhythm wolf :loopy: to sequence the nordrum2. it has velocity sensitive pads, sort of. but it can’t sequence CCs.

as to recording the external pads for ND2 on the digitakt, i don’t know… i don’t own digitakt.

P.S. another great option for sequencing AND recording norddrum MIDI data is octatrack.

Very cute combi DT & Peak! :heart_eyes:

And this… ( for all those too busy / lazy to monitor their internet)
(also this guy is most splendid, check out his OP1 oeuvre)


I think you need to buy more gear…


Interesting story, kinda of what I went through.

I love this.

So, is it true that, if I would buy a second digitakt, I would have to buy overbridge premium twice??

I can understand this when buying different Elektron boxes (although it seems kind of strange to at the very least not give a discount), but asking customers to buy the same license twice?
Doesn’t seem ok…

If you had two PCs, you buy the OS twice. It will be interesting to see how this is implemented.

I reckon it may depend on if the license stays with the user or with the machine.

Time will tell.

If it stays with the machine, can you take it out and install it somewhere else? I’m pretty sure it goes with the Elektron machine, i want to be able to carry my Elektron to any PC or Mac with overbridge and have it run as an OB Premium.

Likewise if i loan you my Digitakt with OB Premium you would be able to run it Premium. Also i should be able to sell it attached. I made the assertion a month back or so that Elektron will sell DT Premiums when the software is ready and DT Regulars, that can be upgraded later.

Will you be able to take the OB Premium out, maybe you don’t like it or use it, and then just sell the OB Premium for DT to someone else? One used OB Premium for sale.

Om most if not all software licenses you get more than 1 license to be able to install it on multiple computers.

In this case it would be just common sense to give another license to dedicated customers that buy a second machine of the same kind. Or at least a huge discount. Ah well… Time will tell.


I agree time will tell. Often it is a single machine licence. Ableton i believe allows two or three on Live, if i’m not mistaken.

Pretty much every DAW and vst plugin I have allows multiple installs varying from 2 to even 5 :slight_smile:
