I just received my Digitone earlier today, and it’s sitting on an IKEA ISBERGET stand (seems appropriate).
I also have a Novation Circuit, a Circuit Mono Station and an Akai MPC Live.
Quite frankly, the Digitone sounds so SO good and I’m so rapidly “getting it” with the Elektron workflow that my original intent to do some integration with one or more other devices is now out the window.
In fact, I think my MPC is going to be up for sale very, very soon. Even after just a few hours with the Digitone, the idea of starting up the MPC and having to deal with all that clunky DAW-like workflow to get arguably more sterile output is making me feel physically ill.
Did I mention the Digitone sounds SO GOOD?
For a few minutes, I did MIDI-sync with the Circuit Mono and try them together. There’s some potential there, and for now I’ll leave it sitting next to the Digitakt on another ISBERGET, but the “classic” Circuit with the Nova synths from 2006 is back in its box for the moment. They can’t come close to touching the INCREDIBLE sounds of this FM monster.
And the drums, oh the DRUMS!!! Who needs drum samples? Not me anymore.
To answer your question more directly, initially I’m not running the Digitone with a single other thing, and if I can get some fresh material cranked out quickly enough, I intend to start doing live performances with just the Digitone by next week.
