RK-002 gets the Digitakt Polyphony and Euclid generator

Published on Sep 22, 2018 Retrokits

"A little walkthrough on our new RK002/DUY which adds polyphony and an Euclid generator to the Elektron Digitakt.

This firmware is better suitable for people using the Digitakt in standalone mode instead of the 'legacy' /MOD firmware. (And that's not only because of the added Euclid generator).

The initial RK-002/MOD with polyMUX polyphony used in loopback on Digitakt is a kind of a 'hack'. This can still be regarded as such but we reduced the chance of MIDI loops in this dedicated version.

Also it is easier to change the number of channels used in polyMUX mode just by sending a MIDI Program Change number on the proper MIDI channel.

The firmware can be changed via our Exchange Portal:

Beware though that not all MIDI interfaces are suitable to upgrade the RK-002 firmware. You need an interface with MIDI Power and full MIDI System Exclusive support. Our RK-005 (also shown in this video USB Hosting both Keystep and Digitakt) is suitable for this."
