Elektron Digitakt - MusicRadar hands-on

Simon Arblaster and Si Truss take the Elektron Digitakt for an early spin and check out some of the features of the latest sampling drum machine to come out of Gothenburg.

Elektron were kind enough to send us a unit prior to the shipping launch date, but as such, we were unable to take a look at Digitakt with the latest version of Overbridge, or the file management app, Elektron Transfer.
