Elektron today announced free updates for the Digitakt and Digitone that add features like Class Compliant USB Audio, Step Recording mode, Trig Probability, Trig Preview, increased sample control on the Digitakt, and additional Play Modes on the Digitone and Digitone Keys.
Here’s what’s new in the updates:
- Class Compliant USB Audio – Class Compliant USB Audio has come to the Digi machines. Connect your Digitakt or Digitone to a compatible phone, tablet, or computer, and easily capture the audio recording from your unit on the fly.
- Step Recording mode – This feature lets you input chords and notes into the sequencer step by step. Or use jump mode to skip to the next predetermined spot in the sequence via the Length parameter, making it even easier to control your melodies and build them a step at a time.
- Trig Probability – Adjust Trig Probability on the Digitakt and Digitones to introduce a little controlled randomness to proceedings.
- Trig Preview – Stay a step ahead of the pattern with Trig Preview on the Digitakt and the Digitones. You can now preview individual trigs whenever you want, without having to wait for the track to catch up.
- New Play Modes for Digitone – The Digitone Keys and Digitone now have four different Play Modes to choose from: Switch between Poly, Poly with mono LFOs, Mono, and Mono Legato and gain deeper control of envelopes and LFOs, and increased playability.
- Increased sample skills for Digitakt – You can now use Parameter Randomization on the Digitakt to shuffle sample slots. And keep your sample list or sound pool better organized across all Digi machines with easier removal of unused sounds.
