Didn’t see a general Digitakt thread anymore, so just wanted to post that I received mine today and I am absolutely digging it. Having OT and AR experience (which I’ve sold in light of potential Mk II purchases), I jumped right in and feel like I know it inside and out in about 5 minutes.
The screen and buttons are great, and I underestimated how awesome the backlit nature of the unit is. It’s such a great design choice, and they are BRIGHT. It also makes me wish the Mk II series had this black color, for that backlighting to pop off of - it’s such a sexy combination and I’m not a huge fan of the new greys.
There’s many rather puzzling limitations like only LP/HP on the filter, but it definitely has a good niche.
I think it would’ve been even more well received if it had 16 sounds on the 16 pads (and I guess 16 midi tracks instead of 8?) That would be very powerful, actually.
I was worried about bad trigs and such in the build - my only issue is the volume knob is kind of wonky feeling, but considering i usually won’t change that on the unit itself, it doesn’t really matter.
Now for that updated OS…
