I got the OT a few weeks ago after a week of the Digitakt under the assumption that the flagship sampler would support most of the features of the Digitakt like Overbridge, using it as a sound card on my laptop, etc. Don’t get me wrong, Im very impressed by this thing, but I really want the seamless integration via DAW (live 10) and hardware.
One of the main reasons I got the Octatrack after the digitakt was because I wanted to live record loops in Ableton and sequence/effect them through the OT, with more sampling capabilities and more LFO assignments. Having to prep all those loops and load them via usb is kind of a bummer just considering my desires.
So this brings me to my main point. Will the Rytm allow me the ability to send samples in via Ableton/Overbridge without losing much of the sequencing benefits of the OT?
Are the sampling engines different in these two?
Does the RYTM allow chromatic scales on the pads?
What would the biggest thing I’d lose if I did switch over, and is it even realistic to look at the RYTM as a replacement for the Octatrack?
I’m not planning on doing shows on a regular basis, mostly want something that I can write with, but having the ability to translate that into a live set is a huge plus.
Feel free to shame me if this question is boring, unoriginal, and devoid of a firm grasp on Elektron gear.
