I’m split between the octatrack and digitakt. The DT seems to cover my needs but I feel as I grow I’m going to wish I had more control and could appreciate the extra complexity of the OT. Another concern of mine is the time stretching and sampling length limitations of the DT.
I’ve done my share of research on features of both devices so I know either way what I’m gaining/losing between the two. Although what I still have been unclear on is how to finish a song and save the recordings on these devices.
Correct me if I’m wrong but what I know is the DT does not have abilities to create full songs on board then export to a computer as a finished song(I am planning on getting a zoom h5 to record the DT live). On the OT will I be able to do this? I am interested in being able to have a finished product without the need for a recording device if I go with the octatrack. Will I be able to achieve this?
My purchasing options
I thought to go with a DT originally to go the cheaper route but still get a solid product, but if I’m needing an extra peice of hardware to record songs on the DT then I am at the same price as an OT and might as well go with it. With I be able to achieve what the DT and Zoom h5 will do on an OT alone?
Thank you everybody. Elektronauts have been very helpful and your topics are going to be worth diamonds in the future.
