Korg Electribe Music Production Station with 16 Trigger Pads and X/Y Touch Pad (Metallic Blue)

The Korg Electribe Music Production Station is a synthesizer-based production machine that turns inspiration into sound at maximum speed. It contains numerous analog oscillators and a wide variety of filters. Whether you're selecting sounds or editing them, all operations are performed simply by using the top panel knobs. 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.

Fastest and Most Intuitive Way to Make Beats

The sequences that you create can then undergo additional evolution on stage or your laptop. You can enjoy intuitive live performances that link various devices with the Electribe, or utilize this capability for full-fledged music production by exporting sequence data to Ableton Live for detailed editing and final mixing. The latest system version 2 adds a much-requested pattern chain function that will be a great asset for live performances or music production. The lineup has also become more colorful with the new metallic blue model. The bonus patterns reveal even greater sonic potential. Making your beat-making ideas rapidly take shape. It's the Electribe; a synthesizer with a sequencer that's thoroughly optimized for speed.

A New Metallic Blue Model

Following the chic gray unit, the lineup has been joined by a metallic blue model that's reminiscent of the previous model, the Electribe Mx. Complemented by the numerous colorfully illuminated LEDs, this unit will energize your playing.

Many New Functions Added Via System Update

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 the original value display. Users who already own an Electribe can update their unit and then enjoy playing.

Download Over 200 Bonus Patterns

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.

Powerful and Expansive Analog Modeling with PCM Sound Engines

The sound engine of the Electribe provides 55 types of analog modeling oscillators, giving you a high degree of flexibility to quickly create sounds.

Mechanism

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. Also provided are PCM oscillators ideal for creating sequences, including 257 Drum/Perc sounds indispensable for beat-making, 44 instrument-type sounds such as Piano, Organ, Brass, and Guitar, and 52 types of voice and sound-effect sounds. The much-requested polyphonic performance support now makes it easier to create styles such as house music, where chord work is important.

Numerous Filter Types To Further Shape Your Sound

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 cut-off and resonance, you can make powerful sounds with great creative freedom.

Modulation Section for Quick Access to Dramatic Sound-Shaping Parameters

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.

A Wide Selection of Insert Effects Add The Final Touch To Parts And Patterns

A total of 32 insert effects are provided, including compressor, overdrive, and EQ. Effects can be specified individually for all parts, letting you have uncompromising control over the nuances of your sound.

Velocity-Sensitive Trigger Pads and X/Y Touch Pad Work Together

The Electribe allows you to input up to 64 steps (16 steps x 4) for each part (sound). You can create beats by combining up to 16 of these parts per sequence pattern. The step sequencer of the Electribe allows extremely intuitive pattern production. The 16 trigger pads and the touch pad with XY control provide a variety of modes that instantly reproduce the phrases created by your ideas, allowing rhythms and phrases to be input without requiring musical knowledge.

Trigger Mode

This mode is ideal for auditioning the sounds before you enter a sequence. The trigger pads are velocity-sensitive, and by striking them rhythmically you can input drum and percussion patterns that have a sense of life and movement.

Sequencer Mode

This mode is ideal for inputting rhythm. You can step-record by using the 16 trigger pads which correspond to 16 steps. This method makes it easy to see the timing of the notes, and can also be used for editing after real-time recording.

Keyboard Mode

This mode is ideal for playing melodies. The 16 trigger pads act as a keyboard, allowing you to play melodies according to the scale/key settings. You can also change the octave.
