Since the release of the Digitone I've been working with getting to become friends with this brand new FM sound engine, and in the process I've made this kit of 40 keyboard patches. There's a little bit of everything in there. Some keyboards, organs, gnarly FM keys and a good mix of whacky stuff as well.
- These are native patches and they ONLY work on the Digitone. The Digitone FM engine is unique, so no other machine is compatible with these patches.
- These patches are stored in one native Sysex file that the Digitone can understand. The file is small, but all patches are in there.
- There are no samples in this pack. I will make a sample pack of this at a later date for use in Ableton Live, Digitakt, Octatrack etc.
How to get the sounds onto the Digitone:
As of writing, the Digitone is at firmware 1.02, which means it's very early days for the Digitone. Currently the only way of uploading patches is to first make sure you're at Firmware 1.02 or later, and use Elektron's MIDI sysex app called C6, found at this page. Connect the Digitone with USB to your computer and open C6. Go into the system menu/ Sysex Dump on the Digitone.
- Refer to the Digitone manual if you're unsure of how to go about. It's all detailed in the manual, which will also be updated when they release new firmwares with Overbridge support, and such. C6 is a somewhat old software, and Elektron is currently transitioning to Overbridge and the Transfer app. I'm sure we will see changes on how to exchange patches between the computer and the Digitone in the future.
I hope there's something in this pack for you taste! Although these patches are designed with keyboard players in mind, of course they can be used with the powerful sequencer in the Digitone with the little built in keyboard.
The true power of the Digitone lies within the powerful sequencer!
