Create Beats Easier Than Ever With A Huge Array Of Samples - The Korg Electribe 2 Sampler / Music Production Station - Red

The Korg electribe sampler is a sample-based production machine that lets you construct beats at maximum speed. You can freely edit and resample using waveforms that you've loaded and preset samples. Modulation and effects can be controlled easily just by turning knobs on the top panel. In addition, a variety of input interfaces optimized for inputting rhythm, bass, or melody allow you to smoothly create sequences as fast as you can think. 

The sequences that you create can then undergo additional evolution on stage or in your laptop. You can enjoy intuitive live performances that link various devices with the electribe sampler, or utilize this capability for full-fledged music production by exporting sequence data to Ableton Live for detailed editing and final mixing. 


Updates make the electribe evolve daily. System version 2 adds support for the much-requested pattern chain function and undo function, as well as support for original value display. Users who already own an electribe can update their unit and then enjoy playing.


Electribe artists, sound designers, and beat makers from around the world have created bonus pattern data packed with new sounds, phrases, and sequences. These 203 different patterns include synthesizer sounds, drum kits, and ideas that work with a variety of musical styles. They are provided as reference materials for your beat-making or as foundations to give you new inspiration.


The sound engine of the electribe provides 55 types of analog modeling oscillator, giving you a high degree of flexibility to quickly create sounds. You can choose from simple waveforms such as Saw, Pulse, Triangle, and Sine, or more complex varieties such as Sync, Ring Mod, Cross Mod, and VPM. Parameters have been carefully selected to allow maximum effect with minimum editing. This means that you simply need to select an oscillator and turn the knobs to create sinuous bass lines, gigantic poly synth sounds, warm pads, or an infinite variety of any other synth sounds you want. 


Filters are at the center of synthesizer sound design, dramatically transforming the sound generated by the oscillator. In addition to the electribe filter newly developed for the electribe, there are a total of 16 filter algorithms such as MS-20, MG, P5, OB, and Acid, simulating the filters of classic synthesizers. By selecting one of these filter types and adjusting the cutoff and resonance, you can make powerful sounds with great creative freedom.


The modulation that's so important for sonic creativity is designed to be easy for anyone to control. Modulation sources such as EG and LFO are available paired with a modulation target such as Filter Cutoff and Oscillator Pitch; simply choose from 72 modulation types and then adjust the speed and depth to apply the type of modulation that you want.
