How do you pronounce 'Digital'? Obvs everyone pronounces it Diggy-Tal cos we're all a bunch of numpties?! eh!

So why does everyone on 'the Internet Tubes' pronounce Digitakt wrong?

And don't even get me started on Mutable Instruments Plates.... Oh, sorry I meant Plaits (Pl@ts) its an AT sound ffs! You don't fecking Plate your hair do you? Maybe you do, if you do, just plate that hair up and carry on.

;-) xx


Swear to god I was just wondering the same thing last night. Was watching a video and every time the guy said "Diggy-takt" I wanted to scream. Haha


I’m guessing that it’s due to the fact that the correct pronunciation according to the people who produce it is exactly that, probably because it’s Swedish and all that ;-)

Digital is an English word, Digitakt is a Swedish one.

Plaits is pronounced wrong mostly by non-native English speakers mostly I suppose… Well, I hope :-)


I learned something new today. :)

Then today was a good day, every day should be a learning day in my opinion. In fact, that's probably why I love modular so much, there's always something new to explore :-)

I work in the academic world, so I agree wholeheartedly.


I too learned something, so also a good day. Though if I ever buy a Diggy-Takt, I shall name it a digitakt :)
Lucky for me i can pronounce Elektron :)

Did you notice that the (super nice) guy in the video pronounces his name like "Jenk" but it's written Cenk ?

And of course, we are all free to name our machines as we like, my Digitakt (when I had one) was named Michel. BTW, I'm still looking for an official name for my rack, currently I'm looking at

  • Blinkenlichten Syndicate
  • Plink Plong Brrrzwhit Noise Machine
  • Michel and Michel

But any idea is welcome


How about Cheese Machine, aka, Racky Raclette? :)

Would be great if I wasn't lactose-intolerant - not even kidding


Me too, though thankfully I'm fairly OK with Goat and Sheep cheeses and a bit of good quality mozzarella on a Pizza.
