I’ve had a Digitone for a while and have been loving it as a live performance box along with a Novation Circuit Mono.
I wanted to get away from samples for a bit and focus on synthesized music. I’m on a great path with that, and now feel like I’m ready to bring samples and a more dedicated drum machine sound back into my setup, with a fresh perspective on more musical approaches.
But the MPC has not been doing it for me. I got spoiled with the Digitone being so immediate and such a creative tool for multitrack synthesis. I didn’t want to drag my MPC back into the mix and spoil the party.
So, enter the Digitakt. It is exactly what I hoped it would be, with a couple of nice surprises, and it has both the beef and clarity that I’ve come to associate with my Digitone.
Yes, I’ve swallowed the Elektron Kool-Aid, but it certainly does taste good.
And they look so darned good together on my desktop!
