Elektron Digitakt v1.50 adds Sample Playback Machines and More


Elektron has released Digitakt firmware v1.50, a free update for the 8-voice digital drum computer and sampler that adds four different Machines, each with their own flavor:

  • Repitch for automatic classic beat-matching;
  • Werp for a little quirky old-school way of time warping;
  • Slice – to chop up your audio and placing the pieces back in any order you like; and
  • Oneshot, the default Machine for playing your sample forward, backward or looped.


In addition, the update adds a new way to record your samples. You can now set a fixed number of steps for your recording. And, Sample Rate Reduction that can be inserted before or after the filter.


What’s new in Digitakt 1.50:

  • Added sample playback enhancements by implementing sample playback machines that add features such as warping and sample slicing.
  • Added Sample Rate Reduction functionality that can be routed either post- or pre-filter.
  • Decreased the encoder sensitivity when changing MIDI parameters.
  • Improved the filter type switching to reduce the amount of unwanted audio artifacts that could occur.
  • Added the functionality to record loops based on the current BPM when sampling or re-sampling.
  • Previewing a sample or a recording while on a MIDI track is now possible by letting it be previewed on the neighbouring audio track.
