I agree with the above, but would like to add that the only major blocker is the apparent lack of a proper song mode, that chains your tracks together. Other than that, the Elektron sequencer in general is very well suited for creating more complex song structures, and certainly for the kind where the separation of the different parts are clear.
I’ve approached them all with the same workflow, which is this, no matter if it’s an Octatrack, a Digitakt or currently an Analog Four MKII -
I come up with ideas. I put them into patterns long or short, and make variations of those patterns as far as it takes me. I’m very specific about their location. Section A is for ideas only, for example.
But once I got something that I feel, okay, this is the start of a song - I copy that pattern into a section of its own. Say, B? Something that’s not A. And whenever I’m in that section, I work on the structure, pacing, timing of the track, the details of the harmonics. That part is for structure and song design.
Whenever I need to go back and experiment, try ideas, and don’t want to mess with what’s already solid in section B - I go back to section A. Nothing can go wrong there, no experiments or attempts at whatever, are wrong. Anything that works, I lift out and put into section B.
So there’s a circular workflow between two defined parts, one being for experiments and ideas and sketches, and one for solid structure. Anything that ends up there, is part of something that should get finished. Anything that’s in the other part, can live or die by the second, mutate or warp, become something else, deleted or magnificent.
