The Elektron Digitakt Compact Digital Drum Machine enables you to upload samples that you can then tune, cut, loop, and run through filters. Because its advanced features give you so much control over individual values, you can create your own “drum kits” and beats that are as experimental as you like – you’re not limited to pre-loaded samples or to familiar retro sounds. You can even surprise yourself by engaging the Randomizer function.
Digitakt’s compact size and solid build quality make it quite portable, which Elektron intended so that it can be a tool for live performance as well as for the studio. It functions as a MIDI sequencer for up to eight pieces of external gear, and its chromatic mode enables you to use it as an instrument for composing and playing melodies. The Retrig function causes a note to repeat at whatever rate and length you set; Micro Timing keeps rhythms sounding natural and human-played by taking them just slightly off the grid.
The buttons engage like keys on a keyboard, and with their positive feel, your muscle memory can help you to play Digitakt without looking. Though when you do look, the light display works well in all lighting conditions and is easy to read.
Like other Elektron gear, Digitakt supports Overbridge protocol, which allows it to be used as plug-ins on your computer. So if you choose the Elektron Digitakt as your compact digital drum machine, you’ll also be choosing a whole range of expanded possibilities for how you create and perform.
great piece of gear, though it will take me a long time to learn how to utilize it completely. Thanks yall for putting me on the game!

Takes no time to get up and running with this guy (and it’s my 1st Elektron piece of gear). Fun, fast, intuitive, it’s made its way to the front of my studio in just over a week. As for it’s limitations they’re all welcome. Love this box.

I have been looking for something offering more than 808s, 707s and the rest of the usual suspects. This is the answer! More new sounds built in than I could ever use, and room to import my own sounds as it is also a sampler. I have burned through all the other machines out there, landed here, and couldn't be happier!
Take a look at the most successful songs from the past 10 years and you’ll be hard pressed to find a track without any use of drum samples. It’s safe to say if you’re still relying on your trusty drum kit and a live drummer for every beat, you’re limiting your creative potential.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!
I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!
In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.
This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.
Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.
You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!
I would recommend Vintage King to any one looking for top-class gear, unbeatable customer service and the best prices on the map!
My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
Thanks for your great service and getting this out today. You guys really are the Kings!
Better than expected! Truly impeccable service. Your team was professional, knowledgeable, provided speedy delivery above and beyond standard. Vintage King Audio is definitely my go to for all of my audio and information needs.
