I have a Digitakt sampler setup with a retrokits 002 cable that will allow the digitakt to become a stereo polyphonic 8 voice sample based synth. When time permits some customs presets are going to become polyphonic monsters or nice little polyphonic plucks/stabs living in the Digitakt.
This is one of the reasons I really like this small format synths. So much creative power in a small footprint that you can really extend through your DAW or with a sampler.
Keep me in the loop if you don't mind regarding your experience with it. Good or otherwise. Have a good one. - Scotty

From my unit I just tested a bunch of presets and the harmonic sequence can get more apparent with some presets if the filter is highly resonant (patch 27) but for me still a non issue as the level is very low and with anything else playing ... completely inaudible.
Also backing off the volume from max (5 o' clock to 3 o 'clock) makes it even less apparent even if volume matched at the preamp stage. I hear exactly the same thing through stereo headphones.
I just compared it to my Volca Keys, Arturia Brute and Beats and their background noise relative to the UNO is higher unless that harmonic sequence cycles up and then Uno gets a bit louder by comparison but still in the same zone.
Yes the background noise is low without the harmonic sequence, but its a really irritating high pitch sequence through a desk to monitor speakers.... have a compressor on the output without a gate its even worse. I am pretty sure it shouldn't be there and am hopeful kit will just be a firmware tweak.
Sounds like you don't have the noise/hiss issue over patches with headphones? I am not getting it with stereo input to my mixer, just headphones, but I have tried 3 pairs in case it was faulty cans or impedance issues from in-ear to pro-audio...same thing.
Anyway- other than these two issues I really like the basic sound of the synth, I have been getting some nice pad sounds from it with a bit of vallhala shimmer added
