I recently bought the Digitakt beacuse I was looking for a good sampler/sequencer to be the “heart” of my dawless setup. So far so good On top I have 2 volcas (FM & Bass) and the Arturia Keystep. I am wondering now how I can best connect all those devices so that I can seamlessly jam and also potentially record stuff via overbridge into Ableton.
Since I am quiet new to this topic one immediate problem I ran into was that I realized that when connecting the Volca FM to the Digitakt via Midi, I only hear the Volca FM sound on the Volca itself, but not on the DT. One “quick” solution I came up with is to connect the headphones out of the Volca to the Input L+R of the Digitakt so that I can start “hearing” the Volca sounds also on the DT. However I have the feeling that there must be a better option (since I also plan to connect the Volca Bass and potentially a NTS-1 into the DT). Is maybe a mixer (like the Bluebox) something that I need? Long story short: My ultimate goal is to have a combined high quality output signal of a song or jam session for all these devices that I can listen to via headphones, monitors or later on in Ableton (with preferrably seperate tracks for proper mastering afterwards). Watched a lot of youtube videos and also dug into this forum but so far I struggeled to fully understand the issue I have here Highly appreciate any input to my problem
