You may have seen our preview, and now Elektron has announced that Digitakt, their new eight track digital drum machine and sampler, is now available for purchase. Here's what Elektron has to say...

Digitakt is a fun and portable sampler, drum machine and sequencer. Fast, digital and utterly playable. The powerful step sequencer, with 8 audio tracks and 8 MIDI tracks, will leave no musician wanting.

Straight out of the box Digitakt is ready to go, as it comes pre-loaded with a volley of high quality percussion samples created by That Sound, among others.

Plug in a phone or another sound source and just start recording.

Later this year, the Overbridge software suite will become available for Digitakt.
