Sorry for the “double trouble” question.
Previously owned OT, AR, DT and AH. Currently absolutely in love with the Digitone. Amazing synth, which I´m using a lot not only for melodic and ambient textures but also for percussive sounds - I´m liking it even more for those massive kicks and weird percs than the AR.
Because of this, I started thinking about the digital percussive masterpiece of Elektron: Machinedrum!
I spotted some reasonable deals for Machinedrums UW MK2 here (around 700 USD - both looks clean, beautiful and functional).
Do you think that they make a good couple?
What do you say about the drum sounds of the MD in comparison with the Digitone - in the end of the day the MD will make an specific kind of FM drum sounds or the machines sounds are really singular?
Sometimes I pair the DN with the OP-Z so the sample capabilities (not the sampling RAM techniques, which looks amazing) aren´t a must - although I´m interested in the 12-bit SP-like textures.
And what should I look for after buying an used MD unit? There´s something that can have problems after some years of studio use that i must check ASAP?
Thanks a lot!
