    Product Description

    The Digitone is among Elektron’s most popular bits of kit, and is arguably one of the most sought-after mid-price desktop synths on the market. Now they’ve supercharged it with a fresh tactile interface (while keeping it familiar and compact) and heaps of new features – oh, and did we mentioned there’s a 37-note keybed? Go forth and unleash digital chaos.

    The Digitone, evolved

    Elektron’s Digitone is an accessible 4-track FM desktop synth that made waves in the industry. It went against the grain to make digital synthesis cool again; the result was a mind-bending palette of throbbing basslines, jagged waveforms and crystalline ambience. With the Digitone Keys, Elektron have made it more accessible than ever.

    The headline feature is the 37-note semi-weighted keyboard. The Digitone Keys is entirely self-contained, with the capacity to produce a track end-to-end in one unit. Elektron fans will be pleased to know that they’ve largely kept the main interface the same; the keybed appears to have been bolted on, but with a few extra bells and whistles. You’ve got pitch & mod wheels, plus 8 extra control knobs, all of which are assignable.

    Digital polyphony for the masses

    With 8 voices at your disposal, you’ve got just the right amount of sonic flexibility. Not only that, but you’ve got dedicated outputs per track, great for mixing and incorporating the Digitone Keys into your existing setup.

    The Multimap feature lets you configure and assign individual sounds per region, so you can easily attain complex textures. It doesn’t end there though; the onboard sequencer comes equipped with polyphonic sequencing, arpeggiator per track, trigger conditions and much more.

    Finally (and crucially), the Digitone formula is also known for its powerful FM engine. Combined with the new keyboard and assignable functions, and you can potentially unlock all manner of otherworldly sounds. This goes well beyond sawtooth basslines and sinewave arpeggios – the Digitone Keys is out to change the game.

    Lots of research before buying this, so I knew what I was getting. It sounds beautiful, it's built to last, and it has the famous Elektron workflow. Love it so far, especially as the class compliant ausio/midi over usb means I can sequence ipad apps too and monitor it all through the digitone with one cable.
