New Korg Electribe

Post by Timbeaux » Thu Sep 04, 2014 6:08 am

Woohoo,

maybe my second attemp in going deeper in hardware equipment. But first let them tell a price for that nice (and well into live integrated) device.

They say those can export patterns to Live ("a collaboration with Ableton").

If someone can leak price, that would be nice.

korg.de does that for Germany: reccomended price €475,- each.

No idea how that will translate to USD, straight currency conversion usually doesn't work.

Look nice but I couldn't wrap my head around the original electribes.

Very interesting devices at a reasonable price.
Depending on how they sound and how well build they are, I might be interested.

One question: That Sampler, can that be used like a Looper, sampling live input from outside sources on the fly?!
Basically like Maschine, but contained in its own hardware?!
That would be pretty awesome.
But why that limit to 270 seconds of sample time, why so skimpy on the internal memory, at least let me extend that with my own SD cards or somesuch.

Sign me up...the EMX was the easiest groovebox to use, but was just missing a decent polyphonic synth engine + fx and velocity.

I have an Analog Four, whilst it sounds great, the Elektron way of working can be confusing sometimes.

Same here. Add all the menue diving and cramped interface, and all the possibilities lost their charm for me.

If Roland can pull it of to make it more intuitiv/comfortable to handle all these fuctions, they might have an even bigger winner on their hands than the Elektron gear apparently was!
