Jack 6.35 for 2 + 1 line output for headphones
1 entry dedicated to sampling in 6.35
3-port MIDI IN / OUT / TRU
1 Smart Media port for import / export its samples

Sampler / sequencer well done,
Sections built-in effects that can be assigned to each sample or part of a sequence

UTILIZATION

fairly easy to pick up if you have already worked on the Korg gear for other manual is very well done, clear and explicit.
For beginners, can be a bit confusing at first, but just look tite a week on it (I've never taken the time to do) for the control at your fingertips.
Note 9 to the good performance of the whole, because for me a lack of effects from section can not be assigned more than two effects on the same sample

SOUNDS

This is a sampler if ca ........ not like it crushes everything and 100 samples is recharged by what we need. Originally it is riveted Hip-hop/break, not my style ..... but must admit that the drum kit is a something of pti intéerssant!
9 also for style

OVERALL OPINION

I bought it on a whim, I've never really had a chance to look at me "seriously", but I agree that it's a great machine works!
Others tried before ES1 models? Heuuuu a Roland MC-303, ca account?

Bad and breath.

UTILIZATION

Very simple configuration

SOUNDS

Effects and the correct sounds, but it is never better served than by yourself.
Provide a map and more!

OVERALL OPINION

Reliable machine, good value for money, a bit overwhelmed my taste.

UTILIZATION

No need for manual, understandable by all the way, where nothing is "forgotten".
Very easy to use, because ultimately this is an ultra-small "sampler".
In addition to a Live set.

SOUNDS

At purchase, the guy had me reset, I put "naked" is not the plant samples and sequences that made me buy this machine.
For sound quality, con ... front wall 20 pounds there's rarely audiophiles who will tell you that the quality of your converters is ch ...
She does what she's done! Unadorned.
Another plus: the possibility of resampling (! Internally so) You can get bass lines starting from a sample of a pov 'pet fly (yeah I know, be patient, the fly is suspicious. ..)

Pifométriques pitch;
Effects unremarkable;
Basic sequencer.

OVERALL OPINION

At the time it served me well. It is a pleasure to use desktop, takes up no space (or weight for that matter) in a hardware set "Digital". I lasted four years.
This is the time it goes bad! The cheap components, poor manufacturing Korg are one day you loose the beast starting with the dial side of the screen that is racing, then come around these little crappy knob which in any case are not made to last, "bizzness iz bizzness" ... the card reader, the overall volume knob ... brief ... repairs or provide, in most cases: wreck!
When we sum the con to buy consumables, bah it consumes con! ...
(Today = Korg's cheap, well packed!)

UTILIZATION

super simple machines such as EA-1 and ER-1 (which I also own)., but also very limited (as of 4/4, two levels of focus, no backup mute).
the knobs are very sensitive (playing with the pitch of samples accurately is really not easy).
The sequencer is basic to basic but often it does not take plus.Toutes functions are displayed on the front (at most a shift in press). Ergonomics actually quite good pensée.Pour have a MC-303, a D2 and a Roland MC-909, it is the opposite here in terms of ease of use and management main.en few hours the machine is known in every corner (which is far from being the case for Roland). The manual is clear and sufficient. on the other hand it is not sufficient in itself, it is a tool to integrate to other machines (very philosophy Korg) as opposed to roland groovebox which may be sufficient for certain styles of music (electro, rap, dnb, rnb, ...). lunchtime poses no soucis.la memory is still very limited, forget to sample loops too long (the machine is not made for this.) but for percussive sounds and other hits, it is clear enough.
The use is very playful.

SOUNDS

The machine abyss a little to the original sound good but it is not catastrophic either, effects are very good for some and mostly correct (or other anecdotal useless for me anyway).
One thing that I found quite annoying is that the panning is set préFX I m says, once I put the distortion on a sample that I breaded left, the sample passes on both sides with the distortion and returns to the left if I disable the effect ...
There are ways to have fun with the FX function reverse roll and pitch, the sound is triturable! Side is the most friendly of this little box.

OVERALL OPINION

Even though it has plenty of flaws, well I love in addition to my other machines. I remake that choice without hésiter.Payée 110 euros occaze in near new condition, this is an excellent deal.
I have several Roland (ex SP-808, MC-303 and 909, D2) and several Electribe (ER-1, EA-1), and this is certainly my favorite electribe.Si we take into account that sampler is not a sentence, it's a great little machine very simple. You will of course not all one piece with nothing but the electribe (within making music ultra minimalist yet) that n ' is not the only case of roland.Comme beatbox is a bit lighter but more versatile than the ER 1 (which has monstrous kicks and snares pretty crappy and hopefully other qualities)

All adj t said ...

UTILIZATION

It's pretty simple to use. After 2 days, we know everything.

True, return the samples one by one in the machine can get drunk ... In any case, it is better pr-dcouper the samples on a PC.

SOUNDS

I think the sound is nickel. I do not feel the drop in quality from 32kHz.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had three days and is the bomb (90euros on ebay with a 8 MB card). I set full of percussion and samples of my bass and did a great accompaniment. has sounded really good and I think it + friendly than Cubase.

Only problem, the memory of 4MB RAM (even with compression), it fills up quickly ... No way to save large loops like a JamMan. Fortunately, I bought a 64MB SmartMedia card on ebay, but only used for backups.

I Rasht on. I wonder if I will not buy a 2nd to sync it to say ...

djulstribe's review (This content has been automatically translated from English)

Voila
everything is already said to be all that is the connectivity and characteristics generally

UTILIZATION

Without her nothing to reproach him, all orders are very fast facade.
easy to use

SOUNDS

With the moment that sounds original (j'atend my memory card to put my samples)
I can draw sounds good Péchu by reworking is that is good for the tribe hardcore but is not complete

OVERALL OPINION

I've had three days, easy to use
I will choose again if I find the same price as I got it (159 € at auction)

Everything is already said in the opinion prcdents

USE

The machine is easy to quickly learn, provided you have some knowledge in the field (minimum enough, it simply is not much).
The functions are accessible very easily, without any concern, very positive opinion about it l.
The manual sometimes lacks clarity that ncissite a little more research and "hacks" Personal (again, this machine is all about a few minutes [or a simple search on AF.])
I CONSIDERED than an evening, the machine can be perfectly mastered.

SONORITS

The original sounds are not extraordinary. These are sounds really "basic" but Nevertheless agrables and practices to learn the knowledge that they are varis and standard sounds.
I import my own samples through the holy SmartMedia.
That said I seduce permit a few bass sounds that I regard.
The effects are well satisafaisants, execute easy and very effective. To make live is gnial!

NOTICE GLOBAL

I use my mkII dpeuis about 2 months but with the smartmedia card for several days.
I love doing live with this machine, it's very fun, it quickly lends itself to the game of mix.
I start with this machine so I can not compare with other models approaching the mkII. I can even say that when Idale to start.
I think the mkII is worth its price, and made quite versatile sound quality is correct.
Idale for a beginner (I rpete but I really advise)
I would maybe not this choice because I have a bigger budget but under the same conditions, the same budget, the same expectations, I would take that machine.

Connectors: audio input (which can be treated), a headphone output, stereo output, trio noon.
The original sounds are very stereotypical, I collect them all. It's a sampler, so it depends sounds you put into.
The Smart Media card transfer makes editing easy on computer.
The effects range from conventional treatments to stuff more Zarb (sometimes found by grinding sounds interesting).
Type drum sequencer, it scrolls to four measures in a loop and place it sounds on a timely manner.

UTILIZATION

Everything is very simple, there's really no complaints in this regard. We can play with very quickly without taking the lead.

SOUNDS

I use it not really a specific style, although it is true that s'adpate rather well with electronic music.
Initially, I treated like a conventional sampler filled up the loop, but the memory is quickly saturated. Since I resigned myself to treat it as a drum machine emulation and this change of approach allowed me to reconsider.
So now she is fed samples of old drum machines and analog I am happy (I can carry around with me a couple of drum machines of quite different styles).
In this regard: http://samples.kb6.de/downloads.php
The term is not his strong point, there are many mode "Accent" but it works in general and not on each sound separately. That said, it can give funny results.
The effects are more or less convincing: it is not of great quality, but it can give a nice touch if not abused. The delay is also very general intéssant in the tampering can be the swing pattern.
Each sound can be edited separately (volume, balance, pitch, filter) but I must admit that I use often in this section I found a little gadget: I try to keep the original sample as I select them for their patch base.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had a little over a year.
It is a small machine that can render loyal service.
We must renounce the use alone, it is not really suited for it (although ... I had fun doing some titles exclusively with it on a 4-track, that is: http://www .myspace.com / baxterkiller)
However, in combination with other instruments, it is quite possible to fit in and help create the most basic rhythm as the most ridiculous very quickly.
What I like:
- Ease of use.
- The overall delay.
- The ability to process an external source (eg synth from the gate not to sync bass lines)

What I like least:
- One effect section with pattern.
- The shuffle not very persuasive.
- The limit of the pattern in four steps.

This is my first and only groovebox, even if those apps offer more powerful stuff in the same genre, I like it for its live aspect and the opportunities it gives to jam (great fun for two with a synth side).
