The Syntakt Ambient thread

Hi all. First time posting here so I thought I would say hi and hope there will be people making here that Ambient stuff with Syntakt.
I already have Digitone and Digitakt but I’m thinking of picking up Syntakt. What do you guys think? Would Syntakt work for Ambient or would it be a waste of money? What are some of your tips?

Well I guess Ambient is so 2021!

I’m interested as well, I don’t think anyone doing ambient has either received one yet or posted anything yet, I have been looking around and have yet to see any examples. I pre ordered one so if/when I get it and have some time to coax something out I’ll post it here.

Welcome to the forum btw!

I’ll be doing some drones with it.

Not exactly ambient, but close enough.

As long as it’s not anti-ambient :sweat_smile:

Have faith. There’s ambient drones.

It’s got sound generators, reverb and delay - all the basics you’d want for ambient.

If the sequencer can do 30 BPM or slower, that should give you more options as well.

Yes I was wondering how low the BPM will go.
I’m really curious how the Toy (physical modeling) synth sounds as well! Maybe it can get into Rings territory

Hey thanks. I was hoping there would be a few people who will dig this!

I think you can do ambient with what ever.

Anyone know if Syntakt can record a sustained tone over several measures. Like a soundscape or drone?

Easily. Yes, even theoretically infinite

I’m doing ambient. Getting nowhere with that on the Syntakt tho. The damn thing keeps pulling me into beat territory all the time :smirk:

Hope to hop on this thread this week after my unit arrives.

This is also my concern. I have one on order, but I can return it within 30 days, so I’ll give it a try…

Thats what i think its for. Im a great believer in the right tool for the job.
