Thanks for the heads UP! I am trying to watch each video carefully and am going to read the manual tonight.
: At 44 or 48kHz sample rate, Ill probably use the multi track of the TR-8 or MX-1 instead (96kHz) .. same for most my Gear.
: While the Chord Record
isn't f(x)ing yet, one could RECORD the chords
as a sample for holding until better Synth Gear is used or directly tracked. I will welcome chords, though.
Saving Per Pattern or Per Kit
: I've never used an Elektron Instrument, but I have the E 2.0 and a TR-8.
The TR-8, I believe, saves per Kit. 16 Kits. 16 Patterns tied to your choice of Kit.
But changing a Sound (808 Kick to 909 Kick) will change the KIT - even though ithe "Kit" was made for an 808 . Not Great.
And, you'll never remember!!
The E 2.0, I believe, saves Per Patttern. You also can put a KICK on any of the 16 locations. - like the Digitakt.
(only Track 1 in the TR-8)
I'd like long, uninterrupted moments of music creation/exploration. This on-the-go Sampler thing seems to fit the bill.
If I were using it as a Kit Library, maybe Id have second thoughts. This is the thought that came to mind:

I really want to get one and i am following the elektronauts discussion. There are a few disapointing things around the release though. Like no overbridge
for a while. People are upset about not savable pattern chains. The Master section is just a Mixer. You cant record chords
into the sequencer atm which is supposed to be a bug. Also people figure that saving everything into a pattern is suboptimal and want extra kits back.
But nevertheless i am still waiting on a green light in the online shop and then might do an impulse buy
