Elektron’s 8-track beat-making dynamo Digitakt has achieved somewhat legendary status since its release in 2017 and now they’ve updated the firmware with some clever new features that will give beat makers additional tools to weave some interesting rhythms and beats. Great to see Elektron’s dedication to supporting and refining their firmware. This is a pretty cool update to the Digitakt!
Here’s what Elektron are saying:
As found in Octatrack, Model: Cycles or Syntakt, the concept of “Machines” has now also reached Digitakt. There are now several new ways to play back your sweet samples. This new OS 1.50 Upgrade brings four different Machines, all with their own different flavour.
Repitch for automatic classic beat-matching,
Werp for a little quirky old-school way of time warping,
Slice – to chop up your audio and placing the pieces back in any order you like.
Oneshot, your default Machine for playing your sample forward, backward or looped.
To top things up we also added a new way to record your samples. You can now set a fixed number of steps for your recording. And, Sample Rate Reduction that can be inserted before or after the filter. Just as gritty as you like it to be.
