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

    UTILIZATION

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

    SOUNDS

    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 other 4 parts (modular, programmable) allows the modeling of sound synthesis kind of basic but effective way (this is not a modulation matrix either ...).

    OVERALL OPINION

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

    What connections (audio, MIDI ...)?
    Input / output + thrue twelve o'clock
    1 audio input (mono)
    1 headphone jack
    jack master output (L + R)
    The machine has several preset editable
    Then empty tracks

    UTILIZATION

    Easy grip
    It comes easily to understand the overall operation of the machine tâtonnant.Pour things more complicated mode can easily be found on internet job.

    SOUNDS

    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 ;)

    Korg Electribe ER-1

    Korg ElecTribe Er-1Published on 08/07/01 at 15:00
    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 p…

    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.

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

    OVERALL OPINION

    I own this bar since its release, I used it mainly live where it is very effective, its step sequencer is as simple as possible and not include 16 X 1 to 4 measurements. this is a good buy given the current odds of around € 100.
    for the studio, I prefer a good analog synth plugin type ES2 and Massive, but for a live set based on the hardware it's a great bar.

    See technical data.

    UTILIZATION

    The general configuration is simple? Pretty simple, one button for each function in the synth, I did not really used the sequencer on the other hand.

    Common functions are they easily accessible? Everything is in front, so yes.

    The manual is clear and sufficient? Open just for MIDI implementation, it was nickel.

    SOUNDS

    The sounds they are suitable to your style of music? Absolutely perfect for electronic music too buggers.

    Are they realistic? No.

    The effects are they effective and responsive? A little thin level effects, it can go live, but this component is very light, but it is not the purpose of the machine.

    The expression is good? (Reaction to velocity, aftertouch to)? N / A

    What are the sounds you prefer, you hate? Everything is in the creation, if it is bad is that crashed in point. That said, the sounds are very light, do not count out a kick or a snare with 909 of it is in the range 808 cushy with the ER1. But if you get into the experiment, there are ways to have fun.

    OVERALL OPINION

    How long you use it? I got it a few months, I went to his owner, shame, I liked him.

    What is so special that you love the most, least?

    +
    The analog side, turn the knobs, what all this.
    The implementation noon, with a PC, it is placed in a corner and down practically, it does. There dashboards and midi out FLStudio for example.

    -
    The next fairly "light" that emanates from the machine, whether at the level of sounds, effects, or use, one would expect a more beefy for an analog, but it's still very nice anyway.
    The ergonomics a bit confusing for knobs, called a patch, you turn a knob and the sound is completely messed up at once because the knob is turned the wrong way (I know if I'm making myself clear. ..), would have had a knob on the diode as BCR-2000. But we made it fast enough.

    Ct sound is that the opinions differ ...
    The success of electribe we had to lay kilomtre hear techno / hard techno-cool and so little original (many people using the same patterns that came with the machine ...).

    For those who want to use it bote main rhythm is not the it is the best but can go. The kicks may be suitable trs, at the infrabass pteux. The snare blah blah, you must spend time to get potatoes. The worst are the hi-hats and clap in pcm still too similar, samples require ...
    When you take the time to address the bte, one can draw full of sounds like "space vehicles" effects, siRNA, blips, etc. inspired synthse analog modules, but "backups" and "automationables". And it's super good, I know of no other machine as rich in possibilities that price, it's a great toy! The automation can CRER of Młoda Manir random image of trs that sound good.

    The delay (only effect only on the master, so any sounds), the same as any of THE FIRST SERIES electribe is trs INTERESTED. With a short time trs can "tweak" the sound (by making it more rough but hey ...) and specially the bass, or make really nice harmonics. With longer times can be quite thin CRER grooves (thereby bearing some of the gaps squenceur).

    The two audio inputs offer squencables full of possibilities as well as a trs saturates quickly.

    Black spot, but for the price we agree: no output spares! Too bad ... We can get away down the right and left for two mono outputs, but then more delay, which is Stereo.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 8 years, c'tait Premire bote my rhythm and I had the opportunity to test for quite other things.
    Clearly, to the rhythm, it's not the IDAL, with Charley in pcm that trs tired quickly and snare not trspchues, and especially especially not out of spares to treat each sound indpendamment. For a better look elsewhere, a bit more expensive (the MFB ct I would be tempted to say, for lovers of analogue ...).
    As for effects, sound electronic modules in all directions, mlodiques loops, etc., the trs is good, but fewer opportunities sound less cold and str OTYPE so popular that the CHRE Machindedrum and much more.

    A great instrument to take its quality, fast pick up and super cheap!
