Maybe post this in the unofficial guide thread. Very useful info, thanks!

Good info!
Looking forward to trying it out :slight_smile:

Wouldn’t it be so much simpler if standard values were the time divisions? And if you press the encoder you get numbers???


Nah, this is more fun.


Nice work!! :zap: Respect :zap:

Agree… Why do simple when you can make it difficult ?


It really a little bit of both for the digi. Hold func while adjusting delay time will give standard time divisions. Additionally when moving the encoder the display will say 1/4, 1/8, etc. when those divisions are hit. With elektron boxes control often supersedes simplicity.

Easy things are for normies.

Hm? Doesn’t work for me. It jumps between 3 settings when holding func. And it doesn’t display 1/8 etc either. It does at the length parameter though.


Hmm interesting. Not in front of my box right now so maybe im mistaken about what the encoders read. I’m pretty sure been dialing in fractions on the delay menu though. Maybe I’m just mistaking one menu for another.

I am a big fan of triplets … so I have done the math. Glad, that tempo syncing is possible here in the delay although it could be more comfortable.

I think your triplets are mislabeled, off by one: 3 x 1/12 = 1/4, hence would be called a “triplet eighth note”, or “1/8T” in Ableton’s notation, but you have labeled “1/16T”.

Update: @Chiron fixed the chart.


Thanks for the correction. You are right. I edit the post to the correct numbers.


is this how the LFO speed works also?

Forgive my ignorance, are these relative to the clock multiplier value set at 1x?

It is for the delay times (delay FX) and there is only one number to set this time.

I haven’t looked into the settings for the LFO yet.

Awesome this works great for the Rytm MKII also even though we do have the Value Jump!


This should be written Digitone style, displaying a 1/X value instead of an integer when we pass the exact value.

By the way all the numbers (including the triplets) are included in the manual now.
