How do you make your show unique? With a sample library, that's how. Your ear for what sounds in nature you find compelling, what grooves on old vinyl you find irresistible, or wherever else you may find your inspiration are what make your performance and your productions yours and yours alone. The electribe series lets you play back your carefully constructed patterns while using intuitive operations to add spice and reveal new sonic possibilities, and the electribe sampler is at the heart of your signature sound.
Approximately ten years after the Electribe SX first went on sale, there's now a new sampler in the electribe series that's designed to be simple and easy for the beginner to understand, and even more enjoyable for previous electribe users. The electribe perfectly fulfills two tasks that both demand speed: live performance and music production.
The electribe sampler featuring KORG's latest technology
The electribe sampler has been reborn with cutting-edge technology inherited from popular KORG products such as the KingKORG, kaossilator, kaoss pad, and taktile. The internal memory lets you save 250 patterns, including preset patterns which are perfect for today's dance music scene. There's also support for the polyphonic playback that's indispensable for styles that include complex chord progressions, such as House music.
An evolved step sequencer
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.
Intuitive beat making with the Trigger pads and Touch pad
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.
A hybrid synth engine with sampling and modeling
KORG created a synth engine for the electribe sampler that's perfectly designed to maximize your creativity.
In addition to a sampler sound engine that lets you use your own unique and original sounds (samples), there are also several types of analog modeling sound engines that are great for creating synth basses and pad sounds. There can be up to a total of 999 preset and user samples, and a maximum of 270 seconds of sampling time (calculated as monaural) can be used. The unit is shipped with numerous drum, rhythm/phrase loops, and hit samples included. (collaborations with Sample Magic, Loopmasters, Prime Loops are included)
Advanced use of samples with Time Slice and Resampling functions
The "Time Slice" function detects attacks within the phrase and slices it appropriately, allowing you to play the phrase at the desired tempo without significantly affecting the sound. Sounds within a sliced part can also be used separately by assigning them to steps or parts. You can even apply an effect to a sample, and then resample it while using the knobs to vary the pitch or modulation.
Even deeper creative potential: Effects and Groove templates
The new electribe sampler provides effects such as compression and overdrive for each part, giving you uncompromising control over the nuances of individual sounds that differ subtly between genres. The groove function can be specified for each part, letting you apply a groove to your phrase simply by selecting a template.
A new workflow with Ableton Live
Transform inspiration into a creative production. KORG has collaborated with Ableton to offer a new music production workflow that combines the best of hardware and software. The electribe sampler can internally save and export patterns in Ableton Live format. Individual patterns and parts are saved as scenes and clips in an Ableton Live Set. Use Live's powerful Session and Arrangement workflows to edit and and refine your ideas, perform or record new parts, arrange your ideas, and mix your song. The Korg electribe sampler includes Live Lite.

Comments about Korg Electribe Sampler:
It's a great combo of sampler, drum machine w FX. Sample time is like 270 seconds, 1/2 in stereo. I am triggering it with a Yamaha DT Xpress kit. Heard mixed reviews but I think it's a great item. Easy to get it confused with the Electribe without the sampler.
Comments about Korg Electribe Sampler:
The previous Korg electribe is good enough to own in order to save money from hiring instrumentalists. I hope this is going to deliver extra ordinary sound melodiously. I challenge musicians to go for it because ti is worthy to own it.
