The Korg Electribe R mkII is intuitively designed and packed with fat, innovative DSP synthesis sounds. You can create beats and tweak them in realtime with the ultimate array of dance styles Korg gives you with the Electribe¢R. Powerful Cross Modulation expands sound possibilities, and the Audio Input function can be used to rhythmically gate 2 incoming signals for cool effects. The mkII also includes a step sequencer, Motion Sequence function, low boost and delay effects, tap tempo, and MIDI clock.

An incredible analog-style beat box

The Electribe R mkII is a new generation of rhythm machine easily enhanced by spontaneous knob-based editing of analog drums and sound effects. Dial in your ultimate sounds and use the internal step sequencer to create original rhythms. Sound editing is simple; just turn the knobs to adjust the various elements of the sound. You can use the onboard sounds in conjunction with the external audio input to create unconventional rhythms never heard before.

Cross Modulation

The Cross Modulation function (replacing the Ring Mod found on the original Electribe-R) can be applied to percussion synthesizers one and 2 to aggressively take your DSP drum sounds into bold new timbral areas. Use it in combination with the motion sequence function to create unimaginably extreme sounds.

Groove with external audio

2 external sounds can be run into the Korg E¢R mkII. They can each be rhythmically gated in tempo with your music using the same simple step key interface. By using the knobs to modify the level, duration, and panning of these external sounds, you can create unique and experimental rhythms.

Step record with ease

Korg's E¢R mkII's step sequencer lets you use the 16 pad keys to make rhythms from the sounds you create. Since you can hear the results as well as see them while you step-record, you can instinctively create cool patterns.

Motion sequences and your mix

Knob movements such as changing the volume of parts or opening/closing the filter can be recorded directly into the sequencer. You can use these to add timbral change to your phrases, panning, and other motion-inducing fun. These Motion Sequences are saved in each pattern along with your sounds and phrases.

Fresh sounds and patterns

The Korg mkII also boasts a significantly expanded list of preset patterns that cover every type of dance music from techno, house, trance, 2-step, electro, R&B, hip-hop, drum'n'bass, big beat, IDM, trip-hop, and lounge.

Rythem Synth

By Slayden

from New Lenox, IL

When I bought the RMKII I found it very easy to figure out right away. The sequencer is set up in a way that is easy to see and work. the sounds are all analog but can be tweaked. There is only one effect (delay) but for the money it is definately a good choice if you just need a beat.


Excellent Drum Machine

By Greg

from Oakland

I use the Electribe for electronica / industrial and it can make a wide range of noises and sounds - and each pattern essentially has its own kit - so you can get an incredible amount of complexity going, despite its modest, i still think there's nothing like hands on, tweakable hardware....completely great
