I’ve been looking into buying a Digitone & an Octotrack mkI second hand (they are about the same price on the second hand market).
I have an Analog Four and even if I’m not much of a patch guy, I do like creating some sounds on my own from time to time or edit some existing one to my liking.
So the question is: As the Digitone is FM based, will it be hard to create patch on it? From what I’ve seen, all the settings on the 8 algos (ratio?) are total non-sense for me and it seems everything will be just try&error and just hoping for the best haha.
Did you succeed in controlling the beast?
I guess they are quite a lot of soundbanks already but I like soft, bright or dark keys/pads and not so much of the harsh stuffs. Is it any good for this kind of sounds?
I’ve listened to all the samples on the site, cenk stuff and the thread dedicated to the Digitone and I like what I hear, especially drums/bass (but cenk and many of the talented people in here could make anything sound magic so I doubt I can do even half of what they do!)
The Digitone seems to be able to handle bass/drums very nicely so I was seeing this as an extension to my A4 (I’m still pondering buying an other A4 though but it would be nice to increase my sound palette with something else).
How does the Digitone fits into your other Elektron gear? What do you use it for the most? (drums? pads? bells? metallic sounds? bass?) Any limitations? (no song mode? no arp for external midi controlled gear?)
