  1. I LoVe my digitakt! I’ve been having more fun making music with that thing than I’ve had in a long time. May have to check this one out too.
    I’d rather get an octatrack tho ….

  2. After watching the video, I think a lot of folks will be using this as a rompler. I’d rather let someone else spend 2 hours getting a sine wave to sound halfway acceptable and pay them a dollar for the patch.

    500 presets is pretty nice. How many user presets can you save in addition?

  3. Could it be anymore complicated? A sound engine and more outputs to be sequenced via an external sequencer would be good. It sounds great. Will electron ever make a simple sound module?

  4. I ignored it like it was meh for a while because I don’t have the cash for it at the moment but after watching videos I’m thinking it might be a really good at being an all in one groove box because it does chords, leads, bass, drums seemingly so well.

  5. I own the Digitakt and the Heat…Both are FANTASTIC! I’m in line for the Digitone no question about it!!!
