This is further evolution of the side car or mini groove rig instruments for Elektron. Very nicely done. I like the button colours and enjoyed a few of the demos a lot. I upgraded to Live 5 way back because it came out with it’s own dedicated FM instrument. Really, really loved the bell and other complex metal tones. The DN does that and more.
I tend to get those sounds through samples and recording physical instruments for live work these days, but I could totally see grabbing a DN for home sound design. A whole world there. I still use Operator sounds from time to time. Also could be a great all in one instrument for some.
I like that the electronic box as instrument concept is not lost on Elektron. Considering the element of play in sound design and composition integrating with performance, they’ve created an integrated, compact electronic music instrument of high caliber. Same with the DT, very nice drum sampler in compact format. The new line is fairly fleshed out, mk IIs, etc, so now onward with bug fixes, updates, video and such.
