Best to wait for the mk2 which will be released shortly after, making the first device "legacy".
The buggy software editor / sample transfer tool will come 2 years later (for free because Elektron are generous!) and will not be compatible with the mk1 for reasons.

The machine (at least the mk2) will feature a revolutionary monochrome display that will be 5% larger but retaining the crisp 8-bit pixelated type and graphics that you know and love because retro is always cool. I mean, you all played Nintendo games and still do, right? You don't really need to be able to easily read what the controls do, because music is all about feeling.

It will look like an arcade sci-fi machine wilh funky candy coloured illuminated buttons. The arcade quality buttons will still work prefectly long after the cheap display has crapped out and the encoders need replacement ( 3 years later) and the cheaply printed labels of the controls worn out from use.

It will feature mono output because stereo is not really needed and because you can have stereo over Overbridge which will only add a bunch of latency to your DAW and make it unreliable if you have another audio interface piping in audio from other gear. (hint: you should only use Elektron gear). Surely a small price to pay. Similarly there will be no MIDI ports, because Overbridge has you covered.

Staying true to Elektron style, you will not be able to launch patterns without perfrorming elaborate finger dances which will show your audience how much of a master you are. Similarly, the encoders will require 100 turns to make a full sweep because this way it looks like you're really working the machine like an instrument and we all know how good this looks on Youtube Boiler Room videos.

There will still be a lack of decent pattern control over MIDI because that's not the "workflow" you need.

In 2030 the internet will eventually realise that Elektron gear is not cool, after Aphex Twin says so in an interview.

Seems Digitone owners will need to wait for OB VST beta a while longer if Elektron devs are now focusing on this..

Can’t help but suspect it’s a drum machine of some sort given the demo having a focus on drums and the word cymbal splashed across the screen a few times.

Color me curious.

The price of a Digtakt here has risen $200 over the last two weeks. Something clogging the manufacture/supply line?

One hypothesis at the Elektron forums is that it’s the addition of drum synthesis to the DigiTakt, and not a new unit.

That would be incredible - and might get me to buy the DigiTakt.

Sounds exactly how I'd expect a next generation Monomachine to sound if it existed.

This makes sense and would be less resource intensive than desiging and building a whole new hardware box.

When I preordered the digitakt sight unseen I assumed it would have drum synthesis and was disappointed when it did not. The video seemed to have sampled drums though, it was the synth stuff that was new. So a more complete digitakt groovebox with synth sounds added would be excellent and would also re-establish Elektron's reputation which has suffered some.

The tweet says "new machine" but in elektron terms that does not necessarily mean new box. It would be excellent if digitakt gets a synth machine added via os upgrade.

Drum synth on the 'takt would be great. I love it as is but am still hoping for a big update, like on the other boxes. A4 got poly, AR got that dual VCO thing, Octa got conditional trigs...

I've always wished it was just labelled a sampler, instead of a "drum computer", Having the 8 sample tracks as Kick, Snare... is kinda irritating, as I rarely use all 8 tracks for drums. Would be a much more acceptable situation with an actual drum synth tho

Can't help but wonder if these are sample or waveform editing icons.

If I tried to interpret them start top left and going down, then top right going down:

Column One:
Disk = save or load
Infinity = Loop or crossfade
Olympic Circles = ?
Cube = reverb or space
Curved Saw and regular saw = waveshaping or fade in
4 S's = ?
Wiggly box = ? or something related to modulation
Wrench and wave = some sort of sample fixing icon
Large circle to many small circles = some sort of slicing

Column Two:
Large circles to small and vice cersa = cross fade
Pencil and Tuning = tune sample or something w/ FM
Circle + venn diagram = join samples
Slope = filter
Recycle arrows = loop sample
back arrow and forward arrow = play forward and then backward
Two arrows overlapping = poly mode
Arrow + volume side = fade in
Multiple arrows = ?

All guesses, but if you study symbols you cant help but try to interpret them.

Could this be maybe an Analog Rytm in a Digi form? Digirytm? Very curious. It’s a good NAMM for percussion apparently.

This is a simple bass/drum machine, with effects and you can chain your patterns and save them in the internal memory….

Please please please let it be a new “pro” product in the full form factor.

It’s been a while, and the little ones with only stereo outs are kind of a c#}*tease.

F-ing brill mate. I was gonna make a quip about a mk II of something many already have thus making them feel like fools for buying the now obsolete model but not only did you beat me to it but you added all the other pertinent points as well.

I think you left out the bit about how the sequencer will be hampered by an idiotic limitation which handicaps it severely (no clock divider).

I wish it will be in the old form factor , same as OT...
And even more I wish it to be TACTTONE in this form factor, combining the two machines in one, in the old form factor, than I will instantly buy to add it to my collection

A digitakt (or better yet, an Octatrack) with added drum synthesis and a battery for portability is what I will wish for then. It would be the perfect couch jammer.

I’m still gunning for an Elektron DJ mixer with 16 stereo ins, a crossfader, and Octatrack style transition effects.

Sort of like the A&H Xone PLAY mixer, but SPECIFICALLY for line input devices to bring all these machines together in an intuitive way.
