During the NAMM show in January, the Elektron Digitakt was for a lot of musicians one of the highlights of this year. Today, the Swedish company announced that the 8-Track Drum Machine& Sampler Digitakt is now available for purchase. In my opinion, a very clever and cool design sampler with endless possibilities. 

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. And for smooth bulk transfer of samples from computer to Digitakt, the new Elektron Transfer software will come in hand. Sampling with Digitakt is incredibly easy. Plug in a phone or another sound source and just start recording.

Later this year, the Overbridge software suite will become available for Digitakt. It offers powerful tools and features when using Digitakt with computers, for example a dedicated VST/AU plugin interface for hardware control and USB audio streaming of internal tracks. Overbridge even lets Digitakt to be used as a sound card.
