Elektron focuses on the FM-enabled Digitone and Digitone Keys, bringing exciting new features, upgrades, and bug fixes.
The Digitakt often receives all of the attention, making the Digitone and Digitone Keys feel neglected — not anymore. Here’s a substantial upgrade to the FM synth operating system which should make users feel much better about themselves and their Elektron box of choice.
The effects section now can connect to the rest of the unit via a GLOBAL FX/MIX menu. All of the settings on the internal mixer, external mixer, chorus, delay, and reverb pages may be set to global so that changes to one pattern affect all of the patterns in the project. This also applies.
The external stereo input may now be divided into two mono inputs with distinct effects sends, giving the effect engine a lot more room to experiment with other devices.
Other changes include the addition of a delay parameter to the filter envelope and the improvement of the LFO Fade envelope. Overbridge audio and sync bugs have been addressed.
There has been a lot of work done to smooth out the images and improve the looks in several locations. You may now adjust the brightness of the LEDs and OLED screen, which is a much-desired feature.
