I just placed another pre-order for the Digitakt. This is my second time (laughing out loud).
Long-winded, arbitrary justifications that I should probably keep to myself: I have a sampler in the Roland/BOSS SP-303 which is really fun in an old-school rugged and raw way, but I still don't have an external MIDI sequencer. I was strongly considering the Korg Monologue which is indeed cool (especially for the money)... but I don't actually need one. I can already do microtunings etc. on the Nord Modular, plus the sequencer on the Digitakt is more powerful than the Monologue. I also have an aversion to mini keyboards. The SE-02 is kind of cool in a Roland/Moog hybrid sort of way, but I don't need one. I just can't see myself getting the Roland boutique stuff because again, I already have a Nord Modular. Basically, every time I think I need or want a synth, I'm reminded that I already have a Nord Modular. It's just that good. But I'll see how I feel once the Digitakt arrives. I know I'm going to want to sequence more than just what I already have. But one step at a time.
