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!!!

Perfect drum machine
Lefix, 10.03.2020
I opened the new world.

Drum machine have a lot features and I'm like an astronaut (elektronaut) discover them. Absolutely wonderful when at third use day I found out that there is a new block of menus when use Func key :)

I expect that drum machine is hardly limited with 8 tracks. But youtube and Ricky Tinez (oh thank you man!) changed my opinion: you can write to one track each new iteration of track. Of course you wouldn't be able to undo previous changes in the simple way but if you need it you can do it with a couple of manipulations.

So I'm learning further how to use it and have a great fun. Especially I think about the moment when I will feel need of Digitone and connect it to a music station with Digitakt :)

Some negative points is that software still in development and Elektron don't work simply with my Macbook. I haven't enough time to find out the correct connection way so just use zoom h4 to record the result.

But Digitakt still have a pretty place in my playground.
Thank you Elektron.

It takes some time to learn your way around this machine but once you got it, it opens up a whole new world of possibilities.

The Elektron sequencer is very flexible and gives the possibility for some more complex and interesting patterns.

Sampling is ok, there is a lot of storage space for recording and transferring files, although editing is not that easy, if you want to make precise cuts.

I have to say that one of the best things about it, is its unbeatable sound. I guess this is due to its convertors. Clean and rich sound with smashing low end.

Another great feature is the LFO which can go at very high rates making FM-like sounds possible.

Definitely an essential machine for every beat maker.
