Im on the verge of buying the OT mkii but I really liked the fast workflow of the digitakt when I had it for a couple of days. The only big thing that was missing was the lack of sample slicing which is very odd because I think sample slicing is a very basic feature for a sampler.
I know nobody can predict the future but maybe i missed some info on future updates so is there a chance for slicing to be implemented in the future?
There are a few threads on this. Where we’re winding up is that the DT is a drum computer. Yeah… we all know it’s so much more as a sampler, but at the end of the day, the intent seems to be “one track, one sample hit”… I realize this is counter intuitive when you consider per-step sample slot locking… but that’s basically where we are. Yeah, it’s a sampler, but really, it’s a sample-based drum machine… I suppose.
The OT’s slicing is great! It’s one of the reasons I bought one after I got my head around the DT. I was in the same lane you’re in, and the OT is one of the best purchases I’ve ever made in sample land.
I’d love slice. It makes sampling other records more fun, but I’d settle for ZOOm. This would make p-locking the start point quicker & more precise to achieve the same effect as slicing.
+100000000 on this feature. It’s a must. If we dm don’t get slicing at least let us get zoom and transient detection so we can put p locks in different places on longer samples. It’s doable now, aka listen very carefully when scrolling through, but that ruins the immediacy of the box.
I just bought a digitakt I couldn’t convince myself to buy a OT I don’t know but the „simple“ and straightforward workflow of the DT is very intriguing. I like restrictions and don’t want a daw in a box.
