MGR/nappyhead's review"Korg Electribe ER-1"

Korg ElecTribe Er-1
I bought the Er-1 from an E-bay seller for $200. I wanted a nice drum machine to make drum-n-bass/garage/jungle beats to back up an experimental electronica/jazz outfit. I wanted a machine where i could control every aspect of the beat, but didn't have the cash for a nice analogue synth. When I heard about this small analogue drum machine i was excited.

The Electribe ER-1 fulfulled my dream of an affordable analogue beat unit. Although there are only 4 synth key to control and 4 sampled percussion sounds you can control and tweak each of them with a variety of parameters, creating an enjoyable selection of bangs,buzzes,blips, and spacey weird noises. Best of all you can save up to 256 patterns of up to 4 different measures long and play it back for continous play. You can save changes you make in realtime-creating coll jungle delayed drums or even scratching sounds.

Ive heard people complain that the sound isnt as strong as it could be, and i admit some sounds aren't as hard or agressive for cool backbeat stuff, but for anything in its price range it is amazing . Through the headphones the sound isn't that cool anyway, but set it up to a nice pa system equalize the bass and it booms and shakes your soul-no joke.

okay this is one area that i still don't like about the electribes - they're made of plastic. Design wise they look beautiful ,but the material distracts from the beauty, and I am seriously afraid to drop it or step on it accidentally.

Despite the cheap housing materials, the electribe Er-1 is very versatile, you feel totally in control, and is great to back up a live act.

Two Out LR, a Phones, both of which In routed for processing RingMod.
Midi out in a small central delay.


Very easy to use, buttons are shortcuts thoughts.
Manual clear but not essential to master the roughly the beast.


Buy at the time for the tech it finished its run beatbox for m accompany the guitar :)

Good sounds are more likely to everything related to electro but also make it a very vintage drum machine (CR68, etc ...) for cheap, reliable & more manageable.

The PCM (Hclap, HiHat, Crash) have no interest.
The other 4 parts (modular, programmable) allows the modeling of sound synthesis kind of basic but effective way (this is not a modulation matrix either ...).


Most: to carve a good kick without taking analog output of a synth, easy to use, very stable.
Least: no battery operation.

Sons former
ca okay to make techo (minimum tribe) but it not go further.
No big possibility of modulating different sounds
quickly tend to rotate in the same tone

tracks made it ;)


I used it for 4 months, j'dirais that it is a good machine, but first we get bored with quickly.
I buy a rs7000 it's huge: D

Manta-lo's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" great little box has rhythm"

Korg ElecTribe Er-1
connectivity midi in / out / thru (to connect to other machines sync)
it to decay with an adjustable depth, which works on the whole sound, not assignable by the


Simple Machines has handle and very intuitive. You can save the nib of knobs which is very interesting and enriched the possibility of Bécanne


She has a nice grain to the analog emulation, coupled with a maximizer she purrs very well and feel good doing it low.


I use it in a rhythm box for 3 years with a korg esx korg ea1 and (synth) and for me it's fine with me.
