  1. Bit of analogue, bit of ‘stereo’ samples, synth engines (programmable SDK) and a very nice sequencer…could be a hit with a street price around £500…A lot to like but nothing that blows me away personally and I already have a Syntakt so will probably pass, but it’s cute!

    1. In think sales will suffer a bit from that the release of the Syntakt was before the Drumlogue release. Roughly it for-fills the same need. You really must have time then to give them both enough studio time. Might be better to just have one that you explore totally then two that you explore half.

      1. It’s USD$600 versus $1000 for the Syntakt. If the workflow and sound is right, this could be a solid device at a significantly lower price.

        1. lol. your digitakt has 64mb of sample memory and a 1gb hard drive for storing samples because it doesn’t accept any external storage.

  2. In this day and age, I guess I don’t understand the appeal of external hardware like this vs using software for drums/percussion.

  3. the good thing is you can play the samples and synth pitched, with a midi keyboard. This you can’t do on the direct competition. It would be nice if you could do it on the analog tracks too.
    The analog part sounded more 909ish then 808ish to me, but maybe i should hear more sound examples.
