How the Digitakt influenced my addiction to create

Updated: Mar 19

The last thing I did last night before I went to sleep was turn off my Digitakt. And the first thing I did after I woke up this morning was turn it back on. Just to try out something on the current production for a "very brief moment".

This irrepressible addiction to create often robs me of my sleep, takes up most of my time and often separates me from my friends. But I don't want to give up this addiction anymore.

The transition from DAW produced tracks to DAWless music has clearly added to this addiction. The workflow from the Digitakt makes it incredibly easy to create a new track quickly before going to sleep.

And bang, another two hours are gone. In that time, I've already created a first draft for a complete new track - something I've never been able to do so quickly with a DAW like Ableton. It's the uncomplicated workflow that forces me to work with the device on a daily basis and create new stuff fast. Very fast.

I think many musicians and artists will recognize each other here, regardless of gear ... won't you? :)
