As an an Elektron owner and fan , have to admit that BLACKBOX by 1010Music literally kills in features my Digitakt and Digitone
Unless Elektron will upgrade the sequencer capabilities of DT / DN similar to the Sequentix Cirklon the , Blackbox ( aka everything what i would wish to have in Digitakt) , is going to put under shadow our beloved Elektron that has some super stupid limitations.
Meanwhile we are dreaming to have a time division / arp through Midi in Digitone and stereo samplering in Digitakt , blackbox delivers the following list of capabilities with the cost of 600€:
- AD/DA 32bit 48khz
- STEREO SAMPLERING ( are u listening Elektron)
- 4 stereo output
- Unlimited sampler size ( cpu limitations and sd card limitations )
- Support big size SD card
- USB midi host
- DC coupled URORACK FRIENDLY
- 4 note polifony
- Upgradable platform, may be for some future granular syntheses possibilities.
- Battery powered
- SONG MODE , not a groove box for just jamming you ca literally finish proper professional tracks with vocals etc ready for the sound engineer.
I v put immediately on sale Digitakt after seeing the looppop tutorial and Ricky Tinez today performance on the blackbox, will keep the Digitone hoping they will upgrade the capabilities but yes i am a bit off from Elektron developers when seeing those new gears coming out .
ELEKTRON IF YOU ARE LISTENING UPGRADE THOSE BOXES AND MAKE TGE OVERBRIDGE USABLE WITH LOGIC PRO X WITH NO CRAZY LATENCY AND ARTEFACTS RECORDINGS !!!
