Born from Elektron's love of drum machines:
The CEO of Elektron stated that Elektron has a distinct passion for drum machines. The Digitakt has a convenient compact size, with an extraordinary digital sound engine. Elektron has a proud history with drum machines following the highly regarded Machinedrum that was discontinued in 2016 after a successful 15 year period. The Digitakt is yet another formidable drum machine. It is compact, rugged, and to the point. The Digitakt proves why drum machines are something of an Elektron speciality.
Rhythm Is a fundamental part of music:
Off-kilter beats, four on the floor workouts, polyrhythmic excursions, they all serve the same purpose. They provide musical structure and sometimes they even make us dance. The Digitakt helps to bring this key aspect of music to life! Containing all of the necessary tools to make people move, with a digital and highly flexible sound engine, sampling capability, a live-friendly sequencer, and the ability to control external MIDI gear, it is truly a force to be reckoned with. Rounded off with a super crisp OLED screen and tactile back-lit buttons, and you have a truly special instrument.
Digitakt comes pre-loaded with heaps of great electronic and acoustic sounds. Drums, percussion, synths, and FX are all part of the sound palette. The sample collection allows you to start creating, experimenting and producing right away. Also included is an assortment of absolutely stellar acoustic drum kit samples, meticulously sampled by the renowned drum sample company That Sound.
