Operatr is our first soundset for the Elektron Digitakt and is focused on bringing the sound of the Teenage Engineering OP-1 to the Digitakt. Users of Omnisphere knows that we have been doing this for years now: taking a piece of hardware, sample the most interesting characteristics then rebuilding them in Omnisphere.
Doing the same with Digitakt posed a challenge we simply couldn’t resist. They say that limitations is the mother of inventions, and this is especially true with this soundset, where we had to use (and probably misuse) modulators and destinations to get where we wanted.
operatr is a collection of 190 sounds
based on the unique sounds of
the teenage engineering op-1
Loved by the people who use it. Branded as a flamboyant toy for hipsters by the ones who don’t, the OP-1 is a divisive synthesizer, but most importantly - a very special synthesizer. Every oscillator and every effect have a tone that is both unique and quirky. The OP-1 is very far from a standard virtual analog synthesizer.
For Operatr, we sampled the 64 aspects of the OP-1, from bass sounds, chords, leads, textures, pads and of course drum sounds. From these original samples, we created new 190 patches for the Digitakt, from simple sounds that just play the clean waveform from the OP-1 - to complex and remodelled sounds. And yes - we sampled the OP-1 disconnected from USB for the cleanest audio signal.
Operatr contains 190 sounds in the following categories:
The soundset comes with clear instructions how to install the sounds + samples to your Digitakt.
This soundset is for the Elektron Digitakt hardware only. The audio files works fine with Elektron Analog Rytm as well as Model: Samples. But the 190 sounds/presets are only compatible with the Digitakt.
IMPORTANT - This product contains presets and samples for the Elektron Digitakt hardware. Please check out the FAQ before buying.
