I hear you. I'm in the other camp there. I love the no screen thing. Loved the Circuit for it, loving the Deluge for it. It's the old school pianist in me talking. That guy just never shuts up.
Honestly, from what I'm hearing and seeing and reading about it, it really ticks every single goddam box I've ever drafted.
What I'm thinking is that the Digitakt might just have loads of character, and that's just priceless.
But you'l never know from vids or soundcloud demos.
