    A great addition to any elektron products owned previously or as a new piece of kit. It sounds amazing and has the infamous elektron workflow. An all in one box that plays well with others!

    This is what I thought the Digitakt would be when I got it ! Although it is still great ,the Syntakt is a killer piece of kit and ticks the boxes I want from a drum/melodic box with the integration of analogue and digital sound working together very well and the Elektron sequencing being the “icing on the cake”

    I already love this machine - it has immediately replaced my machinedrum thanks to a much better sequencer, full stem recording via overbridge and a power supply that is quieter than my fridge

    Well built, great sound and a more simple format than their bigger machines. Intelligent choice of analog and digital sounds, lots of possibilities.
