Elektron admits that a Song Mode for its “Digi Trinity” is one of its users’ most frequently requested features, and now it’s here.
Song Mode could also come in very handy in a performance environment, as you can now put together a backing track, leave it playing and jam over the top of it with other gear. In fact, you could create an entire setlist in a single song.
Elektron also suggests that you could use Song Mode to sequence external MIDI devices, and promises plenty of creative tricks that will enable you to keep things interesting.
Song Mode is included in the 1.40 update for Digitakt, Syntakt, Digitone and Digitone Keys, which you can download from the Elektron website.
