Now the definitive table-top analog synth that delivers uniquely creative sounds is loaded with new synthesis possibilities, fresh sounds and patterns.

Awesome Analog synth sounds
The ElectribeA mkII is a compact synthesizer that lets you create the sounds and phrases indispensable for today's club scene, from warm and fat analog synthesizer sounds to aggressively distorted sounds. Simply turn the knobs to tweak the sounds to your heart's content.
You can create sequence phrases consisting of two synthesizer parts, and save the sound of each part together with its sequence phrase (maximum 64 steps) as one of 256 patterns. Combinations of patterns together with knob movements and other settings can be saved as one of sixteen songs.

Cross Modulation and new patterns
The newly added Cross Modulation function lets the frequency (pitch) of oscillator 1 modulate the waveform of oscillator 2, producing complex overtone structures. Using cross modulation and the further-enhanced filter you can create an even broader range of sounds then ever before, from nasty basses to cutting leads and sound effects.

The mkII also boasts a significantly expanded collection of new patterns, covering every type of dance music, from today's latest trance styles to techno, house, two-step, electro, R&B, hip-hop, drum'n'bass, big beat, IDM, trip-hop and lounge.

Audio input
When you run external audio into it, the ElectribeA mkII can function as a powerful filter bank with resonance. You can also apply ring, sync, or cross-modulation to the signal, and even process it with the onboard effects.

Simple step recording
The ElectribeA mkII's step sequencer lets you use the 16 pad keys to quickly make music from the sounds you create. Since you can hear the results as well as see them while you step-record, creating a pattern is a fast and intuitive process.

"Motion Sequence" function records your knob movements
Knob movements you make to edit the sound - such as changing the volume of your sounds, or opening/closing the filter - can be recorded directly on 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.

Pattern Set Play emphasizes realtime performance
By tweaking the ElectribeA mkII's knobs and using the Mute/Solo function you can create a wide range of variations in realtime while a single Pattern plays. The Pattern Set function lets you assign up to 64 patterns to the step keys, and switch between them instantly in a fluid, DJ fashion.

Control from an external sequencer
You can control the ElectribeA mkII from an external MIDI sequencer, keyboard, sampler, or other device to integrate it into your current production and performance setup.

Customer Reviews
3.5 out of 5 (25 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"The Best of the Cheapest."
Sound: Technoie...some goofy sounds...pretty warm, yet still digital. Not enough Analog warmth. Just synths sounds...so you know. Feature: It's a solid sequencer! Comes with DC adapter. Quality: The knobs (pots) are horrible!!! Loose. Master volume feels like its kinda fall into the chasis. I like the new metal top, but the knobs are loose and wobble. See support review! Value: It's a strong inexpensive sequencer, except for the loose knobs. I paid $270 normally at my local retailer. I got one of the first 800 made. Manufacturer Support: I rate this bad, because they are VERY allusive. You really have to go to the Japanese Corp link on the website, and search to find your local support. About the knobs. My retailer was concerned, contacted Korg. Korg said it was not common. Retailer sent to repair (after owning it one day, Korg wouldnt allow an exchange?!). Repair man called me, said the pots are cheap, and mounted poorly, but are not defective. If he replaced them they would still be woobley. I contacted Korg. They said this was "not inherant" of the machine. So I asked for a replacement, they said they would get back to me. 4 days later I called them back, and they admitted to me that they had sacarficed quality in the knobs to improve other parts of the MkII. Do a search on Loose Knobs Electribe, Bad Knobs Electribe, etc. You'll see there are tons of documents, especially at harmony-central. The Wow Factor: Nice cheap sequencer. Needs a bit more though. However it blows away the Roland SH-32...blows it away! Just no drums, bells, or whistles. Overall: This will remain a staple of my set-up...until I get an EMU-XL7 or a Yamaha RMX-1.

While I work very hard to not have to return products, I've had one defective product, and one purchase I made wherein I misread the application of the product. Under both instances, zZounds has been great to provide a return option." - Customer on June 1, 2017
