Elektron announces Digitakt & Digitone OS upgrades

OS Upgrades: Digitakt 1.20 & Digitone 1.30


Swedish musical instrument company Elektron today announced substantial firmware upgrades for their digital drum computer & sampler, Digitakt, and their digital synthesizer siblings, Digitone and Digitone Keys. It's time to get elbow deep in a host of cracking features that will make each device even more powerful and your music-making experience even sweeter.


Class Compliant USB Audio

Class Compliant USB Audio has come to the Digi machines. Connect your Digitakt or Digitone to a compatible phone, tablet, or computer, and easily capture the audio recording from your unit on the fly. And this is just scratching the surface of what is possible. Hook up to all kinds of apps to add extra control in any number of ways: more effects, more LFOs, more freedom.

Step Recording mode

A new sequencing mode is available on the Digitakt and Digitones - Step Recording. This feature lets you input chords and notes into the sequencer step by step. Or use jump mode to skip to the next predetermined spot in the sequence via the Length parameter, making it even easier to control your melodies and build them a step at a time.

Trig Probability

Adjust Trig Probability on the Digitakt and Digitones to introduce a little controlled randomness to proceedings. Chance really is a fine thing.

Trig Preview

Stay a step ahead of the pattern with Trig Preview on the Digitakt and the Digitones. You can now preview individual trigs whenever you want, without having to wait for the track to catch up.

New Play Modes for Digitone

The Digitone Keys and Digitone now have Play Modes. Switch between: Poly, Poly with Mono LFOs, Mono, and Mono Legato, and choose your own adventure.

Increased sample skills for Digitakt

You can now use Parameter Randomization on the Digitakt to shuffle sample slots. And keep your sample list or sound pool better organized across all Digi machines with easier removal of unused sounds. Purging power, leveled up.

Lots more improvements & fixes
