Korg ElecTribe EA-1
This little unit is quite feature less.Although you get some very basic analog synthesis abilities,the little unit lacks heavily on effects.

price paid: FREE


If analog synthesis is tough for you try getting your hands on one of these.It truly doesn't get any easier than this.A very hands on approach to analog sounds of your own creation quickly and easily.


I can't really recall how long this little synth has been out,but I remember it being the rage at the time.It's sound quality is pretty superb even to me today,I often find myself playing on this rather than my microKorg and tweaking the preset sounds to madness.


This little thing is several years old and was used before I got it in a trade in,but is still in perfect condition and still to this day looks and sounds great.

I really love this synth.It's almost a guilty pleasure to work on something so basic as this rather than a much more complex analog synth.

This little two hand korg possde synthtiseur. but little is alloyed with other instrument becomes an indispensable tool and extremely pleasant.

pb no connectivity, an output jack for part of a synth sound in between, mid level, a midi in and out a thru

Regarding the effects, you can work sounds galore.


A small toy, trs easy to use. I have the red korg er-1 is still eplus easy to use. but these are not really small korg headlock.

Quick and easy instalation trs.

The manual is not a pb, besides it only serves trs little (or not at all) so the machine is easy to use.


It's there that has a small BMOL korg.
I find the sound too electronic synth too, a little cold sometimes.

But worked well with other instruments and I'm doing well and I get out a sound I want.


I use it for 2 years, it was with the korg er-1 in my first purchase machine groove box.
It's a really handy machine live in, I am too happy with.
For now and it's not arriving prs I think, I do not want to sell it in any way. it is perfect, easy to carry around lgre, easy to use.

This kind of korg are gnial at modif in real time, hence the interest to use it live, you can do what you want during your set.

I do not regret my purchase, and if it again I would not hesitate to buy.

Talking right now about what fache the sequencer is only four steps (ok ok the classic series of electribe) but unlike al 'er1 no set pattern.


Highlight of the series electribe: getting started. These machines are designed to introduce summers little kids age 4 and older children rather than a quarter of a century. The user manual that you will find in the paper is as pure formality.


Ca lack of REprobleme cruement envelloppes. There is only one filter with envelloppe Amount of decay and adjustable, a single filter: low pass, but the two osc mods are poor (an FM mod it would have been) never push the resonance is imonde ca ended a beeeeeeeeeeeeep and no musical or warm GOOD 235euros I stop here it's almost irrelevant


In terms of architecture it's been a little 303 (section filter / env) otherwise it does sound rather trancey (nothing to do with a 303)
the distortion is degeulasse
can also be used when troubleshooting MIDI keyboard

NBCergotamine despite what the squenceur possde indeed the Pattern Set function that allows you to assign any reasons, which each of the 16 256 buttons squenceur in four banks for a total of 64 patterns available soon.

We must put this unit in context: it is not a Roland MC. Its design accommodates groovebox trs well squenceur the limit. I would not use squenceur certainly not a main frame of film.

Motion Seq function, which records the movement of button per game, definitely adds a nice depth to the possibilities of this little bote.


The same simplicity. The possibility of shipping are correct and promote a quick job.

DO NOT THROW YOUR HAND! He is there some trs INTERESTED dtails about the possibilities of the MIDI device. Make use of these opportunities further pushes the limits.


Of course it has electro sounds, it makes for a. You will never have the grand piano in it, although you can treat with the internal filter and effects thanks from the line.

A good programmer can learn a few chords.

The filter envelope is too basic but it is understandable that rduire to this point in Korg, they have to make concessions.

Like most instruments Korg analog formulation of the late 1990-2000 beginners, the sound is trs midoyant, not really fat, not always clear. It is the instrument that has the most.


I have Electribe EA-1 and ER-1 since 2002 and I learned a lot ttant machines. These are, after all, good tools, but nothing professional. Anyone can draw imaginative sonorities and innattendues INTERESTED.

The instrument is oriented live at the expense of his weakness for use in the studio.

Yes, the distortion is frighteningly dgueulasse.

The ratio quality-price is right.

I'm glad to have known that instrument, but would do probably do not have a choice.
