    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.

    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.

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)

    otherwise say, forget the voice or 1min 30s is dead, unless Deles samples with a pitch in the bottom and "dpitches" after (for a sample of 20s you made 3s, but you lose qualitmais vote for c not too imp))

    otherwise, some nice effects (although 3 / 4 are not useful (for my taste) and it's still not particularly great effect ......), to find good bass.

    UTILIZATION

    Very easy to use, just be too simple? (I do not think)
    In any case, it is still fun, you connect, you make good sounds you sample, you add good bass and c party, you guts for a long time.
    And when East for lives, and that's still good, you have 64 letter pattern, you guts 1min per pattern and AC makes you a 1-hour live .... Simple, right? (Except that I think 95s with heat c
    )
    for Samper, there is simple, you press rec and party c ...
    Increasingly, the knobs are a joy to spin! (Live)

    SOUNDS

    The sounds are oriented electro (for the hardtek c nikel), and c so perfect, there have not bcp but still they are relevant, but oh yes there are still a lot of shit (style: voice "yeah" , "stupid", ""....... thats right you can still pull in sounds good trips: increase the pitch, put + reverse roll, and you ca is a pure chelou the way you like them (and not the ones you love you Jarte!))
    if there is still a good quality of sound, and that's exactly what was missing on computer software: a sonic tape!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had one week and I already made the rounds ......... but hey I delire well with, and frankly I got 275eur in German (as against 430 in fce), and therefore I think it's cheap, because if you want the good stuff requires more expensive type bcp!
    as this little trip with korg c it's really intuitive, you can démerder you to make good stuff, and even if it have any major defects, c clear, if you're not and you trp con bidoulle well, you overcome some of these defects, but hey the 95s they are no hacks ...

    frankly if I had known I would have expected me to pay the ESX1, but hey I think I have given pa ...

    I wanted to 6 / 10 but I thought the price and deserves even when the 7 / 10

    I read everywhere that there is not enough time for samples, I recall that the ES1 is a box rhythms and is therefore designed to will integrate mostly one shot samples. The intgration audio loop is so unwillingly he better not be used for this purpose (rsultat mdiocre possible but most of the time compared to a "real" sampler) to sample less mlodiques minimalist lines.

    UTILIZATION

    This machine is intuitive trs (a bit order). There is no hidden function, any Newbee Will arrive to turn this bcanne no problem.

    Some, however, are quite dtails pnibles: Can not save a mute pattern.Ds you are doing stop dmutent all parties, we must juggle mutates into a d s The beginning of squence and then make a break for each new pattern which is not very practical.
    Also impossible to put into VENTS not no song mode while it is possible to do pattern mode, for trspnible also mute.

    Otherwise it's all good: the knobs are a good rpondent Resistors and rather well, all functions are visible, led the "original value" very practical.

    SOUNDS

    Ben sounds, seen that it is a sampler is sure to make it sound. If you return it sounds cheap sound cheap.
    Otherwise the sounds are original hair (especially the voice, I still remember the "YEAH" super cheesy) but for many unusable (and who wants to use the factory sounds from a sampler).

    In effect there is at least good as well, and in any case use it sparingly otherwise end up with a big shit sound
    The reverb is one of the rotten I have ever heard (trs trsmtallique) range rglages the ring mode is far too broad to that seen in the treatment effect and made a pitch shifter very poor.
    Caution, this does not mean that these effects are unusable but it makes the sound edition limit. Better to do the bulk of the sound processing on a computer and use the internal effects of changes to live.

    The expressiveness is almost nonexistent. The focus is not ditable track and it was too big a cart with the tracks without accents. We must therefore do everything to the volume which is much longer for a given homogne.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 2 months and am generally happy because I n'esprais not much more of this machine. I used to flatten the Ides and make minimal electronic components (there is not much else to do with 8 tracks).

    Cons:
    Squenceur it in stand alone
    -The audio edition
    VENTS no-no no song mode (everything is read)

    the most:
    -The rgonomie
    -Use for live (the knobs)
    -Size

    In short this machine is terrible as live rhythm module (slave) or for beginners as Premire machine.
    report quality price is right compar her older sister (ESX1) that the views of CHARACTERISTICS, is the theft of nine

    Few possibilities, but considering the price is acceptable.
    Time stretch (right on 1piste), master delay, and some effects more or less good (but they are adjustable a cest cool!)

    asrx Ensoniq or even on a workstation style ghost.

    UTILIZATION

    Then the fault ... it's really not easy but at the same time there are few functions.
    even when I say Bravo cest trs intuitive ... for a small machine that first meeting trs.

    SOUNDS

    The basic sounds are not all terrible, but at the same time you can put your samples and your samples cum on the other 64MB SmartMedia (which become untraceable and Christian! Know!)
    against it by no means raliste c'esdt trs electro ... which I did a lot of dub and drum'n'bass is a plus.
    Some good kicks, snare bad, bad voice, low average, but you can just mess with the knobs ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    In lensemble what I find a good value qualitprix trs. I had to lay new 380 euros in March. At this price, I find there way to find his account on this type of rhythm box
    jOperation same audio input with a guitar ... you can use the effects of lelectribe.javoue the phaser and distortion are pretty good and made with the guitar.
    The real plus of this product is the possibility to modify each sound and each squence live!! and all ptites mpc grooves or boxes do not allow forcment (quic knowing you can affect the composition of rhythms and act on them with the knobs! very cool
    I'm not on again against this choice, I realize what a little sound (100) a little ledge when you see the dr roland 880 such as a 700je think!! more sounds are has a very realistic and open styles else .... in short I believe that if you want to be very rich rhythmic multiple machines ....
    masi I do not regret my purchase.

    - His big, warm, well to be trs bass snares or chattered, the brass quickly become thinner by trs Plastiq against

    OVERALL OPINION

    - Intensive use for 6 months, it is the basis of almost all my songs!
    - I connect the headphones to work samples and patterns CRER the fly .. just needs a little memory of Sampel (85 seconds) and ptterns (2x64)
    - Non mkII version quite similar but I prfre aspect of it, and I use the massive mod delay
    - With the exprience, I 'men probably would take a second DS as possible!
