ON­BOARD EF­FECTS

Future Music - - REVIEWS | ELEKTRON DIGITONE -

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.
