Whispa (Elektron Digitakt)

By cTrix on January 14, 2018 4:16 pm

My first Elektron Digitakt.  Written in bed over past few days.  Recorded in the studio in a live take.

Using all factory sounds for now until I get used to how to program the unit.  It's quite fun for now learning with a super simple set of samples.  Conditional trigs + fill triggs are rad!

sick! can't wait to hear what you do with it once you start adding your own samples.

January 15, 2018 12:59 am

I just love how you take any device out there and make it your own man. Rad groovy tune.

Exactly my point. Saw this one previously on Youtube, so I woke myself up with it along my alarm smile

I really like how the middle section with the wandering melody reinforces the more straight ahead melodic sections

super captivating to see when you mute and unmute triggers, and play around with stuff, since this is incredibly similar to my live working method

like, I usually do fills, filter sweeps, muting tricks and stuff like that on the 1st and 4th bar, but you were doing a bunch of stuff planted firmly in the middle of the 3rd bar, which juxtaposes nicely against the 4/4 but would be confusing if the beat was more syncopated

confusing long story short, I learnt something '_-

sounds really dope!
love that bass so much!! Deep and warm and incredibly funky

January 15, 2018 3:13 pm

This makes me want a Digitakt so bad. Well done Chris!

January 15, 2018 3:23 pm

Stylish sound
possible listening for long time

January 15, 2018 4:22 pm

Love this. Nice and clear sounds

January 15, 2018 6:33 pm

Nice build. Great work!

January 15, 2018 9:44 pm

Good stuff, looking forward to more Digitakt jams.

January 16, 2018 3:24 am

thank you so much for including the video, those are very inspiring. You made me remember I forgot about fill mode! Totally a must for live performance, my little dub would've benefited from it for sure.

Freakin' love this and the double hand claps are ace, super clever filter work.... how did you make the snare roll at 00:58? conditional trigs?

Anyway, very inspiring thanks again big_smile

January 16, 2018 5:09 pm

Holy shit !

January 16, 2018 5:28 pm

Amazing production!

January 17, 2018 3:42 am

Wow, sounds great!

January 18, 2018 5:46 am

jawnloaded heart

January 18, 2018 7:02 am

Heck yeah, this is groovy as hell.

January 18, 2018 7:23 pm

Awesome bass groove and jam!  The digitakt looks really fun too.  You might like 'Red Means Recording''s youtube channel, he has a few digitakt jams. 

January 19, 2018 4:20 pm

Ooooh nice! I've been planning on picking up an Octatrack, but this sorta makes me wonder about getting a Digitakt instead. This track makes me think the Digi is more flexible than I thought it was.

January 20, 2018 9:01 am

Maybe it's the use of the factory samples but I wouldn't pick this as your work, super refreshing and interesting!

January 21, 2018 10:48 pm

wooooooooooow
