Let’s talk more about the effects! Firstly, the Digitone has a handy stereo input so you can route any external audio through the delay, reverb, chorus and overdrive effects (although it’s worth noting that the inputs are summed to mono before the effects). This makes the Digitone a very handy processor for older synths and drum machines that don’t normally have their own built-in effect. Importantly, like the Digitakt and other Elektron boxes, the quality of these effects is high throughout. The chorus is wide and lush, the reverb deep and atmospheric – perfect for moody soundscapes – and the same goes for the delay too. There are plenty of tweakable parameters to help tailor the effects for any musical style. You can adjust the frequency response, pre delay, decay and gain on the reverb. The chorus, meanwhile, has speed, width and HPF controls. The delay, has controls for the HPF/LPF, feedback, width and ping-pong mode. Also, there’s a master overdrive that, despite being digital, sounds superb and is great for adding grit to either the native FM engine or incoming audio. You can P-lock and sequence the effects parameters too.
