Korg ER-1 mk2 Electribe R

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

The intuitively designed Electribe R mkII is packed with fat, innovative sounds produced by DSP synthesis technology, a classic interface for creating beats and tweaking them in realtime, and the ultimate array of up-to-date dance styles.

Features

An amazing rhythm machine with a cool new look!

Many new patterns representing the latest dance styles

Powerful Cross Modulation adds a new dimension to your sounds

Audio Input function can be used to rhythmically gate two incoming signals for cool effects

Step Sequencer for easy input of patterns

"Motion Sequence function records knob movements

Low Boost and Delay effects

Tap Tempo and MIDI Clock for synchronizing with an external sequencer, etc.

An awesome analog beat box
The ElectribeR mkII is a new generation of rhythm machine that is enhanced by spontaneous knob-based editing of analog drums and sound effects. After you create your ultimate sounds, you can use the ElectribeR mkII's 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 that have never been heard before.

Cross Mod creates aggressive new sounds
A new cross modulation function (replacing the previous Ring Mod) can be applied to percussion synthesizers 1 and 2 to take your DSP drum sounds into bold new timbral areas. Use it in combination with the motion sequence function to create unimaginably extreme sounds.

Use external audio with your grooves
You can also run two external sounds into the ER-1mkII. 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 truly unique and experimental rhythms.

Step record with ease
The ElectribeR 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.

Add motion to your mix
Knob movements you make to edit the sound - 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.

Amazing new sounds and patterns
The mkII also boasts a significantly expanded list of new preset patterns that cover every type of dance music from techno, house, trance, two-step, electro, R&B, hip-hop, drum'n'bass, big beat, IDM, trip-hop, and lounge. This broad selection provides you with powerful grooves for your performances and productions.

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

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (34 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"this thing rules."
Sound: This machine has a really great range. Feature: The only feature that I don't like so far is the "original value" light. When you're editing a knob, and you want to get back to it's value before you started the tweak, just turn it to the angle at which the "original value" light turns on. However, due to the extreme precision of the knobs, this can sometimes feel like brain surgery as you zero in on the precise value. I would prefer an "original value" button-light, where you can just punch it to rollback a bad tweak. Quality: This thing could take some serious wear and tear. Mine's brand new, so who knows? Value: Yes BUT: Check the difference between the R and A models. I picked up the wrong one accidentally, but this thing is nifty and I'm going to keep it and have both. The A is the analog synth that I was looking for, and the R is the Rhythm synth that I had no idea I needed. The Wow Factor: It's fun. If you have one of these, you no longer have to worry about clicking a mouse to punch in beats, and it's way cooler than a normal drum machine. Overall: This thing does exactly what it does, exactly right. it's JUST a rhtym synth, but it is a super excellent one.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "this thing rocks"
Sound: I love the sound of this unit. It's great for what it is - analog style percussion. Don't expect it to be a do-all drum machine, but it completly rocks out for electronic styles. Feature: Would have liked for it to be able to be powered by batteries. Also, it could have come with a soft case. Korg sells one, but it's way too expensive. Third party bags are reasonable. More dsp effects (reverb) would be nice, but unit sounds great just the way it is. Audio in features are cool. Quality: Feels great - sturdy metal housing. Knobs feel good. Value: At first I thought price was a bit steep and unit a bit limited in what it could do. After using it, the limitations don't bother me and I don't know how I did without it before. If you're on the fence - buy this before they stop making it. You won't be sorry. Manufacturer Support: Haven't need it. Gave it a ten to be consistent with my other ratings. The Wow Factor: I wouldn't necessarily think of this as 'sexy' but it reminds me more of something like R2D2. Great to have around and entertaining. Overall: I just got this and a microkorg. Within a few days I've been making the best music of my life and I've been making electronic music for over 20 years (might not be good, but I've been doing it a long time!). I'm using the korgs in mostly in conjunction with my Yamaha RM1X. These things breathed new life into my setup. If you have realistic expectations for what the electribe rmkII is, then you'll be very pleased. It's not a magic stand alone box, but a easy to use groovin analog style rhythm machine. Personal tastes differ, but I'm very pleased with this unit. As I said before, I initially thought the price a bit high, but it's worth it.
