Korg Electribe 2 Music Production Station
The electribe has been reborn including KORG's latest technology distilled from popular products such as the KingKORG kaossilator kaoss pad and taktile. The 200 preset patterns cover House and Techno as well as cutting-edge dance music genres such as Trap and EDM. Another major evolution of the new electribe is support for polyphonic playback which is indispensable for musical styles that involve complex chord progressions such as House music.
Using the 16 pads placed on the front of the unit you can create patterns intuitively while actually hearing and seeing the sounds. You can use the pads as a keyboard to realtime-record phrases and also perform step recording by entering the pitch and rhythmic value one note at a time. The patterns you create can be used in alternate forms as you perform by taking advantage of the step jump feature inherited from the volca series or by changing the last step to vary the length of each part. There's also a motion sequence function that lets you record knob and button operations and use them in the pattern that you create. Either drums or synths can now be assigned to each of the 16 parts (i.e. the 16 pads). For example you could create complex rhythms by assigning drums to all of the 16 parts.
Familiar from the kaossilator is the touch scale function that lets anyone perform without wrong notes just by moving a finger across the touch pad. The trigger pads that were popular on the taktile are also provided making it easy for anyone to create phrases intuitively. The trigger pads can also be used for drum input. Settings allow you to switch velocity on/off.
or the electribe KORG designed a synth engine that gives you the maximum sound-creating freedom and the fastest sound production. The 409 oscillator waveforms include analog modeling and PCM. The analog modeling synth engine provides a broad variety ranging from simple basic waveforms to complex combinations such as dual unison sync ring modulation and cross modulation. The PCM sound engine provides mainly rhythm sounds but also covers multisamples for keyboard. (collaborations with Sample Magic Loopmasters Prime Loops are included)
The filters at the heart of the sound-shaping capabilities are inherited directly from the KingKORG and they use filter algorithms that simulate standard synthesizers so that you can get the sound which was used in famous songs just by selecting the appropriate filter type.
You can also apply filters to drums to create rhythm tracks that are rich in tonal variation. Modulation can make sound-creation more complicated but we've made it easy by condensing it down to three parameters: simply select a template that specifies an effect and its target and then adjust the speed and depth of the effect to suit your taste.
