Hi guys,
For those of you with the Digitakt, can you tell me how you've integrated it into your eurorack rig for performance purposes? I'd like to expand my drum palette with the Digitakt.
Thank you--
Jim

You could convert its midi sequencing to pitch, gate etc

Or you could convert midi messages to triggers to trigger drums and other nonsense.

Other than that it depends on your setup and what you'd like to use for, specifically.

I have just bought an Intellijel MuMidi for this purpose. I will probably stick to using my Analogue 4's CV out for notes, but intend to use the Digitakt for transport (Run, Reset) and Clock duties.

I have one of the FX sends of my mixer (that the Digitakt goes into) rigged up to an input into the Eurorack, so I can also use Eurorack modules for an FX chain that puts the Digitakt's onboard effects to shame.

I will eventually build a Eurorack case for drums, but even then, my live setup will likely still use a Digitakt for triggering drums and samples. Small size/low cost/UI is very hard to beat.

Like Jambirn, I would be interested to hear how others are using theirs.

I have digitakt connected to yarns so theres up to four tracks of cv and gate.

I'm waiting on the Digitakt to come back into stock near me, but the plan is to use my Shuttle Control. 16 flexible CV outs, should be able to parameter lock control voltages, output drum triggers, cv/gate, envelopes, LFOs. Quantised and fluctuating random voltages. Looks like it has a built in arpeggiator now as well. All parameters are set by midi CCs so should interface nicely with the Digitakt

Been thinking about getting a Digitakt for a while now. I'm planning on using my FH-1 and one or two of the FHX-1 expanders to get all kinds of MIDI info from the Digitakt into my case w00t

I do this with my Octatrack. It's pretty mad what you can do with this combo...

I got all kinds of ideas in my head but I'm sure it'll just explode when I actually get my hands on it nanners

Hey Billy/Fridge or anyone else --- tell me, how would you use the FH-1 with the Digitakt or Octatrack? I'm interested in its onboard LFOs and etc...
Jim

You could easily have all 8 channels of CV (with or without velocity and after touch), multiple ways of having LFO's and CC P-Locks, clock, etc...

Definitely not the easiest module to wrap your head around at first, but with some RTFM and experimentation, I haven't seen much that comes close to sending as much information.

These two charts are particularly helpful:

I love the Vermona QMI with my OT.

4 voices of cv gate with 2 extra assignable cvs per voice. Also 3 different clock outs and a reset out.

Shuttle control hands down!

Digitakt and some kind of "MIDI/CV" module are getting near the top of my shopping list so I am in the same boat. I have waffled back and forth between USB Midi (FH-1 being the leading contender in this category) and MIDI Classic (Yarns or Befaco's MIDI Thing being the contenders here). I had almost settled on classic MIDI for the sheer simplicity of the thing, but I am intrigued by "CC Plocks".

Could you expand on what that would enable ??

And does the Digitakt plug straight into the FH-1 or do I need some kind of iConnectivity box ?

I'm waiting for my Digitakt to ship. In the meantime, I picked up a CV OCD, which is a standalone $100 box that does midi-to-CV conversion:
https://www.tindie.com/products/hotchk155/cvocd-a-super-flexible-midi- to-cv-box/

I haven't used it yet, but it has extremely good feedback here in the General Gear section. Plus, it's low-cost and doesn't take up case space or power.

Wait wait, I was looking at it online but didn't get this functionality... PLock CVs?!? that's wild. I have an LXR so was thinking that could clock both euro and digitakt.

the only thing holding me back is the fact that it only has one stereo pair out. I'm wondering - since I saw this was an overbridge feature - if there could be some sort of raspberry pi based breakout box to get individual outs.. just a thought I had!

Can anyone explain what PLock CVs will do? What's that all about?

A PLock is a "Parameter Lock". On Elektron sequencers, you can hold down a trigger and turn a knob to change the parameter for that step only. Using the MIDI sequencers, you can P-Lock a CC value. You can also attach trig conditions (i.e. probability, fill mode, other logic) to create generative behavior.

And, using an FH-1 can I somehow map those CC values to a CV value out of one of the jacks ?

I don't have an FH-1, so I couldn't tell you the exact steps... but yes, it's possible. The FH-1, Shuttle Control, Yarns, Ansible, and CV OCD can convert CC values to CV.

Don't listen to these people, join the dark side, get a CV-to-MIDI module (ADDAC221, ADDAC222, Doepfer a-192-1, Doepfer a-192-2, Ladik M218) and have your modular control the Digitakt! Darth Vader

This is possible with the FH-1... at least clocking. The FH-1 can be clocked from a CV source in your modular and send it to its source. It can get pretty wild clocking the Octatrack with different divisions of a master clock. Sequencing gets bonkers, especially if you have wonky samples playing on the OT. Slow down, speed up, P-locks, sampling your modular through the OT and then resampling that.

The thing that I like about the FH-1 is that it has its own internal LFO's that you can drive with cc's. If you try to use the OT's LFO's with a cc to cv converter, you will likely hear some stepping.

I use CV.OCD with my Digitakt and I have a 2-voice modular system. So I can set up track 9+10 with ch1&2 controlling my 2-voices. And the cool thing about this, at least according to me, is that you can set up track 11+12, 13+14, 15+16 with the same midi channels, setting up different patterns, and then you can mute/unmute between the different patterns. Allowing you to have multiple patterns, on the same pattern! Long sentence...

Really happy with this combination and it has opened up a lot of new possibilites for me smile

total hijack but related -

for those who want to integrate digitakt into your setup... i'm guessing you have a mixer and would like individual outs!

if you're a DIYer maybe you can help with a breakout box idea that I have:

wow great idea!
i keep thinking i want something in the rack but the cv.ocd is a lot of bang for buck
