The most creative tool I own
The Greek Samurai, 05.08.2020
i have never before owned something that inspires me to constantly create something new. The workflow and sound quality enable you to get creative and start making music without having to worry about limitations or breaking your flow by making you deep dive into endless menus. The only thing I would say is a limitation is that the L/R inputs sum the signal into mono and you do not have any control over gain or panning. Monitoring the inputs as stereo is only available when the digitakt is connected to overbridge which defeats the whole purpose of going DAWless. The reason it bothers me is because I want to have the digitakt as my main synth/drum machine/sampler/mixer and have the rest of the synths accompany it which I cannot do because my stereo synth is no longer stereo when I connect it to the digitakt input. Also stereo sampling would be great but I understand not wanting to destroy the sales of the octatrack. Overall one the best pieces of gear i own.

Studio Mastermind
Wall Brown, 24.11.2019
This machine has a vibe to it that makes you wanna sit and make music.It also incorporates other machines perfectly,I use it with my old Roland JP8080 and the DT makes it sing.It controls up to 8 cc messages,bank and program changes and also a highly practical MIDI LFO that you can assign to any cc.
Also ties perfectly with my iPad playing the Animoog and iSem so that gives me a 11 track setup that sound more full than anything I ever had.

Even with its 8 tracks,the sound engine is so tight and the sound so full that it’s a delight.8 sounds may sound limited and yes there is no song mode.

But I can assure you I can perform a blast with just 3 patterns and 6 of these tracks.
Usability wise it’s on the easy side.Forget what you hear about Elektron.Their workflow kills and once you get the hang of “locks” in general you wish everything worked this way.

Thomman was a king delivery and price wise and really on these money there is hardly something better you can find when you want a machine to be your center hub.

Perfect!!!

Great, for someone else
Bosil, 25.08.2021
Had it for while and then sold it. Didn't enjoy the workflow. And those clicking buttons where driving me mad. Felt like punching on a typewriter. I much prefer programming drums on the computer. Much faster and more flexible. This thing really should have a song mode. As for over bridge: impressive concept, but didn't see the point. If I were to buy a new drum machine, I'd rather have something with more analogue outs.

A joy to look at, maybe not to play.
T Molloy, 01.06.2021
Beautifully made with a high-quality feel.
But the software/ workflow is a real pain.
Tbh, not having a song mode makes this instrument feel like an expensive toy. In this day and age, I shouldn't have to buy their flagship product for over 1k to have something worth gigging.
What is this instrument for? Composing is a pain (use an MPC or DAW), live is a hassle (Use an Octatrack... if you can afford it).
Elektron shot themselves in the foot here by trying to keep the Digitakt from competing with the Octatrack.
