Beautiful in every way
raindeer, 04.08.2020
For something so capable, people will of course come up with wishlists for it. (Personally I'd like to be able to apply the filter on line in or have the ability to record all the tracks live together with a default note like on the Digitakt).

But basically this is just a stunning piece of kit. Once you've got the settings right to work with external gear it is just the right combination of powerful and playable. The factory sounds are already wonderfully dystopian and\or beautiful and you can either download additional ones or make your own from scratch by messing with algorithms, harmonics and so on... the main control interface of just switching between function pages for the 8 encoders works well although assigning LFOs on the fly from an immense list can be tricky.

For range I find it best to play with an external midi keyboard. Yes, the sequencer is great as others have said but its also nice to play as a standalone synth using as many of those 8 voices as possible and shaping the sound as you go. Start a drone with infinite release time going on one track and play along to it.

Something I wish I'd known: although by default Tracks 1-4 correspond to Midi channels 1-4, recording on these channels will not work well with the sequencer or with e.g. a sustain pedal. Instead make sure to use the Auto Midi Channel (default is 10 I think) and select the track on the Digitone instead.

Overbridge works quite well in Ableton I think but I've not had much luck with it in Logic. I can get a stereo mix but not individual tracks.

An FM synth/groove box for music creation (not only for FM synth lovers)
omino, 23.04.2020
This synth/groove multitimbral FM box is perfect for my electronic music requirements: fun, control and fluid workflow.

This machine is not for all: if you are able to understand/love which sensations FM synthesis can make you feel, this is THE little box of wonders.

Respect to older FM synths, here you spend more time creating music and less creating sounds, but if you want you can go deeply into the 90% of FM's secrets: the sound development process is simpler (respect to the older synths like DX7) and you don't have some alghoritms, but trust me, it is not a bad lack, you will be able to create all sounds you need in less time and you will have a lot more time for sequencing and creating music.

Having only 4 FM tracks and 4 midi tracks is not so bad considering that you can trig any sound you saved in the sound pool within any step of a project.

If you use an external keyboard you can map multiple sounds to multiple splits along the keyboard.
I found only one bad lack: untill now seems it is not possible to record external pitch/mod controls inside tracks (they work only playing live)....Elektron is reactive in updating firmware of it's machines with new features, so I expect that this must-to-have improvement will be implemented one day.

The Elektron sequencer inside this machine is magnificent. The workflow process is close to perfection.

Live is a great machine, but using buttons combinations will requires some (not so much) time.

Amazing build quality, brilliant workflow, quality sound with great daw integration!
Genitive, 19.04.2020
I had this synth for around 2 weeks now and it really is a brilliant bit of equipment! An amazing array of presets built in that show the incredible range this synth has and these are brilliant for guiding you into experimentation to create original unique sounds.

The overbridge support software for daw intergration of the synth has just been released for digitone and is a great logical experience for turning loops into actual tracks. The total recall function is very useful for loading the correct settings for that project to the digitone as soon as you activate the function.

For anyone who hasn't used Elektron products before, it does have a bit of a learning curve but after a day of playing with it and going through tutorials, you quickly become able to create and modulate all kinds of lovely sounds and turn them into nice 4 track tunes!

All round would highly recommend this great piece of equipment!

Also great service from thomann as always! Thanks

Very powerful FM synth
Groovial, 24.12.2020
I like the way it's built, solid. Powerful sound engine, well programmed, very good included sound effects, a large sound library, I am overall happy. I use it in minimal techno music production either for bass, either for textures or percussions. It looks small and simple but boy, it's not a toy. And not to forget, the sequencer is brilliant, as well as the MIDI sequencers which offer more than I wanted.
