The Best Elektron Digitakt Sample Pack Yet?
254 Samples mapped into two sets, Bank 1 and Bank 2, 127 Samples each to load and utilize the RAM fully! Powerful sounds, perfectly organized. The Digitakt Sample Pack combines the power of fully-fledged sample kits. So what's the main benefit? This sample kit for the Digitakt was created with a clear focus: Get your hype going quick! But how exactly? Multiple Samples for each category:
- Synth Leads
- Synth Bass sounds
- Synth Chords
Within each category, we included three character types of samples. Let's make this clear by looking at one example:
We recorded clean 808 Bass drums. They just do what they are meant to do. We included around 1-2 per bank. The standard is always there, for a reason. Sometimes other elements get the spotlight.
Then we added around 10 Kicks with differing layers. Some with the ambiance that we captured in a huge cellar, some with layers added from a synth. A few outboard pedals for crunch. Some crazy deep, some noisy, some with brutal attacks. These sounds should get your inspiration going and are so rich sonically, that you can easily use filters and envelopes of the Digitakt to tweak them to match your jam perfectly. With some samples, it is possible to create a full track, only by using 1 Sound! Try it. You will love it.
To push your creative process even further, we included a few "crazy" sounds. Sounds that just smack like hell. Still, we always maintained a good tuning. This means, when you add your bassline, it's easy to find a complimenting sound.
In all three categories, we made sure to include sonically balanced sounds and a few that feel more like layers for stacking. No matter what your intended use of the Digitakt is, we got you covered. This framework is applied to all percussive sounds.
Our samples are processed diligently. We keep the organic qualities and features and leave enough room for you to change the sound to your liking. No over-compression. Never! At the same time solid constant levels. So choosing a sample while the track plays you actually hear the sound, it will cut thru.
Load a full bank and start squeezing the most out of your Digitakt.
The Synthesizer sounds come from the Moog Mother 32, Behringer Odyssey, Behringer Crave, and the Arturia Micro Freak. Processed with various outboard gear. Such as Tube EQ, Tube Distortion, and modulation FXs. To get more organic characteristics, we did re-amping in a wild venue.
We allowed the samples to keep a long decay. Why? It´s always easy to get rid of it, with the envelopes of the Digitakt. You are always in control to easily and quickly customize the samples to fit your jam.
All tonal samples are tuned to note C. This way, you can create melodies and harmonies in seconds without puzzling around what key the samples have and how to integrate them. We keep it simple. Hit that chromatic key on the Digitakt Elektron and create wonderful top lines.
We included Chords in the key of C, each of which has a minor and major version of the same sound. It is up to you to mingle with them and make them your own.

The story behind this Digitakt Elektron Sample Pack
With 64Mb ram and a 1gig hard disk, there is finally space for us to share the longer samples which create that organic feeling, that reverb decay that fills the gaps in between silence. Every music-creating scenario is different. We found a common ground and must have requirements that suited us very well during our own live improvisation jams. Want to see us in Action? See our Playlist with 31 DAWless Jams of this year's JAMuary2021 Event! We created the sounds the way we enjoy using them ourselves. This resonated with a lot of you out there and we are happy to share the final version with you. In many cases, we jam with samples and only select the ones that really make an impact and sonic difference.
The way we approach creating the Sounds for the Digitakt Elektron
Our main goal is to make it our own and unique sound. We rarely record clean sounds. We send them through outboard gear or re-amp them in various locations. Over-processing is not how we roll. Over the years, we learned to keep the organic and dynamic flair alive. We set them to a given LUFS and make sure none of the samples are clipping and to round it off we also check that there are no unwanted clicks.
What all our Digitakt Sample Packs have in common?
A unique selection of our own recorded, mixed, and curated samples. All tuned to the key C. Some are noisy some are clinically clean. Not over-compressed, we believe in organic sounds.
