"Fantastic Sampler for the Price"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This thing is great if you're not really into sampling but want to try it out before you decide to purchase the Octatrack one day. I am a guitar player mainly but love synths. This is my first sampler and I've made some of the best music I've ever made on my own using it. I can mix acoustic sounds with synth sounds with mangled guitar samples, it's amazing and the possibilities are endless.To me the Ease of Use rating is really 5 stars since I've already owned and used a Digitone for a while before getting this, but to someone reading reviews about it and not having Elektron experience it's at least a 4 star rating. The learning curve and depth is obviously worth it.This box is going to become as classic as the Octatrack.

"Make sure you’re not just riding the hype train"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I knew I wanted a Digitakt. I bought a Drumbrute Impact and promptly returned it to get a Digitakt instead. I watched all the YouTube videos over and over again (especially a certain dude with glasses who is Digitakt fanboy #1). I knew I would use it to make cool ambient tracks. Making a halfway interesting regular beat is pretty straightforward. Recording and manipulating samples is fairly intuitive. Conditional trigs are cool and MIDI sequencing external gear is a good feature. Are all those things worth $650-750? Not really, to be honest. This box is of course capable of way more, if you put in the time and connect with the workflow. In my opinion, that is a BIG if. My advice to a relative beginner/non-pro would be, only buy this if it’s going to be your main instrument for a while and you know you’ll put in the effort to get unique results. Otherwise, you’ll end up making some decent sounding generic beats you could have made on a much cheaper piece of equipment. Personally, that was my experience, and I ended up selling this. Try to play with one for a while before buying, and honestly I would avoid the YouTuber I mentioned because he is just so deep into the hype. For folks with experience who know this what they want, it’s probably the top of the line. For everyone else, well, there’s a reason these get posted to Reverb everyday with the description “couldn’t connect with the workflow.”

Very deep and intuitive sampler..built like a tank and the sequencer is very inspiring. I upgraded to this from an MPC500 and the work flow is so mich quicker with the Digitakt. Also over bridge will be free in february
