I thought I was done for a while and hadn't even considered the Digitone at all. When I got the MPC, I had originally been looking at a Digitakt.
But recently, I have really been enjoying the way the Circuit Mono sounds generating synthesized drums and mixed-in melodic content using patch-flipping. For some reason, I'm really just connecting with the lively sound of synthesis as the generative source for grooves.
And then I saw this:
The more I learn about the Elektron workflow, the more musically inspiring it seems ... ideally, this might play as a good middle ground between the Circuit/Circuit Mono and the MPC Live, minus the sampling but plus some other amazing stuff. But the FM drums on this sound so GOOOOOOOD!
