Superbooth 2019: Elektron Digitone Keys FM

US A first look at their new keyboard version of the Digitone      08/05/19

Cenk takes us through the new Digitone Keys. Digitone Keys adds a 37-key velocity and pressure sensitive keyboard with aftertouch and 8 assignable rotary encoders.

Reminiscent of the Monomachine SFX-6, the Digitone Keys puts the keyboard off to the side of the synth. Giving it a slightly unbalanced look, however the idea here must be that the keyboard won't get in the way of the Digitone workflow.
