It's on pre-sale at Moog too. http://www.moogaudio.com/elektron-digitakt-pre-order-p-11561.html
The Elektron Digitakt is looking GOOD! It's also not as expensive as pretty much all other Elektron gear.

A good way I fuck with people is when they say something thats good I'll say "Thats pretty gay" then they are usually like "no its a good thing", then ill be like yeah thats why i said it. 👌👌👌
Honest question: do people still care about albums these days (let me finish!) as a stand-alone piece of art or have things shifted decisively towards albums as supporting pieces for larger art projects?
Just look at recent projects from:
Oneohtrix Point Never
I guess this is the kind of question a 40-something Gen-X'er would ask, since that's exactly what I am. 🤔
If you've read any of the "MP3 is dead" articles, you need to know that's absolutely not true.
Here's what actually happened: the patent for the MP3 format has expired, and this is a GOOD THING. Now EVERYONE can use the format without paying royalties to Fraunhoffer - including you, if you're programmer.
In other words, it's actually the opposite: MP3 is supported everywhere and is now completely royalty free and open source.

@Elucidating In my tests Win10 is under-performing both macOS El Capitan and Linux with the same software (Bitwig).
Bitwig isn't free, and Ableton is considered a good (and yes, expensive) software, so it's definifetly an OS problem.
It might be because of ASIO drivers, since no pro-audio app on Windows uses their native audio driver architecture. This is both for technical and historical reasons.
Sadly, macOS is the only system with good pro-quality audio out of the box.
The only downside is there's no official VST plugin support from commercial developers (yet?). On the other hand there are plenty of exellent free plugins, and Bitwig's built-in effects and instruments are good enough. I never use heavy plugins on stage anyway (you're asking for a crash if you do), so I think I can live with it. Let's see how it goes.
