Elektron Digitone – 4OP-FM Synth + 4 Track-Groovebox

Elektron Digitone

Digitone ist ein 4OP-FM-Synth mit subtraktiven Elementen (bedeutet: mit Filter), ein Synthesizer also mit Sequencer im klassischen Stil.

Elektron Digitone is a 4 OP FM Synth with Filters and 4 Track Sequencer. Classic 4 measure max. length.

Cool: Es gibt Macros und Eingabehilfen für Frequenzen für mehrere OPs, Detune und macht daher das Einstellen einfacher und schneller. Gut!
the Digitone has some macros to change detuning, OP frequencies – here it is more optimized to macros – the ALG is always shown in the display. There is plenty of those in the digitone, so it’s different from the Yamaha-approach. you may need to learn about it as well but they tried a lot to make it easier – which is good. and – it makes other things controllable, that are more easy to be used “as a whole” – rather than just one parameter – it feels more like morphing something.

• 8 voice, polyphonic
• 4 tracks
• 4 OP FM,
*Operatoren sind Oszillatoren mit Lautstärkensteuerung durch Hüllkurve. OP is a name for an oscillator that controlls it’s level by an envelope.

schade: nur 4 Takte, könnte man in 2018 nicht auch mal um 8 oder 16 Takte bitten? FM entwickelt sich und braucht mehr Platz. Schon beim DX200 waren mit 16 steps zu wenig, bei der Electribe die 4 Takte und jetzt hier auch. Ich warte…
still for FM it should have at least 8 or better 16 bars of pattern space – it’s 2018 and time to add some LEDs – right? it’s still possible and – I had problems to accept electribes to become 4 bar-sequencers as well as the DX200 that had only 16 steps – sorry – I’m waiting for something on that topic!
