I’ve noodled around with my Elektron Digitakt drum machine/sampler but haven’t used it enough to get comfortable with the workflow. I came across this video awhile ago about different techniques (16 of them!) to use the Digitakt for synthesis and modulation. I think it will be a nice reference for exploring the breadth of Digitakt’s features beyond its sampling capabilities.
On an unrelated note, it’s been about a year since I took a break from music tech and posting to the blog. I’m kind of limping back into things with this post but I’ve got a few projects in the queue and I’m feeling like I’m ready to get back into hacking on music stuff and posting again.
