can't say the digitakt feels new to me, it's refined and simplified yes but it doesn't really quench my thirst for anything function and feature wise that was possible on a previous elektron machine.
no GAS for digitakt/heat here.
i'd say there's a lot of us that have many elektrons and want something more focused than the OT for mixing multiple elektron boxes with added processing. No need for heavy cumbersome and space consuming analog mixers, just something that is built around the elektron UI with strengths in creating a nice mix in live situations with the ability to assign kits send program change etc to various mix/fx parameters
i do respect what they've done with these new boxes but i am eagerly waiting something more feature rich and multi purpose. The ability to easily reconfigure a machine to serve a totally different purpose in your studio was a huge selling point for me. of course the more affordable price and increased quality of components reflect the value of the new machines, but i would gladly pay double for something with a deeper and more varied feature set.
