Introducing: Digitone Keys


#754

We’re going to have to agree to disagree. And feel free to ignore my posts in the future, and I’ll do the same with yours.


#755

Sorry. Digitone Keys are the siamese twins brothers of Digitone. :stuck_out_tongue:


#756

It’s been… …so long… :skull_and_crossbones:


#757

And with the mod and pitch wheels off to the left.


#758

:smiley:

That’s actually ok for me. At 6’4" I have an arm-span that can handle it. :stuck_out_tongue:


#759

Sure same DNA and a lot of similarities of course (drum machine and sampling), but the MIDI tracks are a big enough part of the machine that it could not just be replaced by an AR, that’s why I don’t consider it to simply be an up-sell.

And Meriphew, just because I’ve disagreed with you about a few things recently doesn’t mean that I’m going to automatically disagree with everything you have to say or think your opinions are all wrong. Disagreeing with someone about something doesn’t mean that the right response is to just ignore them.

Sorry for my regular derailment of this thread people, has anyone here received a DK in the mail yet?


#760

Tbh the Digi’s probably dont have a song mode because of Overbridge, and because they assumed most people who would be buying it would have some other form of sequencer already i.e Octatrack, MPC, DAW, etc.

I don’t mind the lack of song mode, personally. Not being able to save pattern chains is quite annoying though.


#761

I know some dislike the physical appearance of the Digitone Keys, I think it actually looks pretty cool.


#762

I do too, it’s pretty strange and I think the look fits perfectly with the sounds it makes. The more I look at it, the more I want one! I could order one right now buuuuuut it is pretty expense for an impulse purchase. I wonder how many they’ve sold.


#763

They are agree and back to topic! :heavy_heart_exclamation:
I admit I got used to DNK look, kind of like it now. Better than MnM version for sure!


#764

C’mon! Doooooooooo it! Dooooooooooooooooooo iiiiiiiiitttttttttttt!

:smiley:


#765

Ugh dude I want to I’m really enamored with the idea of allll that steel, the DT already feels sooo solid and I’m sure the DK must feel like an absolute battleship… I told myself that instead of lusting after it I should turn my Peak on more often…

Has anyone from the first batch of orders received theirs???


#766

This


#767

I just sold my DN and I want that DNK thing badly now! :stuck_out_tongue:
I once had an analog keys and felt a huge bump in the convenience/workflow/fun factor compared to the analog four.
Now, I think I am going to fall in love with the DNK! Can’t wait!


#768

DT is Digitakt, DN is Digitone. So DNK for Digitone Keys. Be careful or you could spread a Digitakt Keys rumor. :smiley:


#769

Woops. Just edited my post thanks


#770

You’re not reasonable. :wink:


#771

Someone has probably already thought of this, but id like to see, simply, an Elektron Keys- basically, the broken-off keyboard portion, but with 49 (or more) keys. Keep the same height/depth, mod/pitch wheels, assignable encoders, etc -add a small screen for programming. Some other bells and whistles like arpeggio, USB-host capability, a midi merge hub would be nice and simple to add.
If they really wanted to knock it out of the park, have it also function as an overbridge USB audio interface with a slew of assignable 1/4" jacks - able to break out the individual tracks of digiton, digitakt, or any overbridge-equipped machine, add extra external inputs, duplicate outs, or effects send/returns, cue, who knows what else… CV?!
That last part might not even be feasible, but we can dream.

Brackets for attaching the elektron box of your choice on the end are optional.


#772

Am I the only one who thinks an elektron sequencer plus 37 keys is worth waaaay more than an 88 keybed? Considering all the functionality down the origi-tone end I’m glad the wheels are there. Play with righty tweak with lefty… just like my grandma always told me.

Problem is folks are mad on Toto - Africa and now all the kids got brain damage!.. poor little crud-munchers.


#774

First batch is already Sold Out …my guess would be…a 500 in one batch?
Or rather 1000?
