Product Description

The new Korg Electribe 2 is a re imagining of the beloved production station with a brand new interface style and synth engine that has been used in products like the King Korg. The redesign of the electribe is there to make it easier to use for beginners or people new to the system while still keep all of the same controls and features that people have grown to love on the original Electribe system. With the new synth engine there are now 200 preset patterns which suit a wide range of styles including techno, house, trap, EDM and more.

The step sequencer in the Electribe 2 is more powerful than it has ever been allowing you to input patterns in real time and use the pads as a keyboard for real time or step recording. It can handle the real time, low latency processing because the synth engine allows the faster sound production. With 409 oscillator waveforms available the Electribe 2 offers up a great amount of flexibility with its analogue modeling and PCM sounds.

With groove templates, compression and overdrive available for each part you can completely transform your sound from one genre to another with ease, add in the master effects section you get an even wider range of sounds available in this single unit. The Electribe 2 also works with Ableton Live to provide a great way to mix your Ableton sessions with the power of the Electribe 2 live or in the studio.

Here's what Korg say about the Electribe 2 Music Production Station

Change your "live" style

Flexibly shifting in style to match the trends of today, the electribe series continues to lead the world's dance music scene. Approximately ten years after the Electribe MX first went on sale in 2003, we now introduce a long-awaited new model that's designed to be simple and easy for the beginner to understand, and even more enjoyable than ever for existing users.
The electribe perfectly fulfills two tasks that both demand speed: live performance and music production

The new electribe, now covering even more genres of music

The electribe has been reborn including KORG's latest technology distilled from popular products such as the KingKORG, kaossilator, kaoss pad, and taktile. The 200 preset patterns cover House and Techno as well as cutting-edge dance music genres such as Trap and EDM. Another major evolution of the new electribe is support for polyphonic playback, which is indispensable for musical styles that involve complex chord progressions such as House music.

An evolved step sequencer

Using the 16 pads placed on the front of the unit, you can create patterns intuitively while actually hearing and seeing the sounds. You can use the pads as a keyboard to realtime-record phrases, and also perform step recording by entering the pitch and rhythmic value one note at a time. The patterns you create can be used in alternate forms as you perform by taking advantage of the "step jump" feature inherited from the volca series, or by changing the "last step" to vary the length of each part.

There's also a "motion sequence" function that lets you record knob and button operations and use them in the pattern that you create. Either drums or synths can now be assigned to each of the 16 parts (i.e., the 16 pads). For example you could create complex rhythms by assigning drums to all of the 16 parts.

Intuitive beat making with the Trigger pads and Touch pad

Familiar from the kaossilator is the "touch scale" function that lets anyone perform without wrong notes, just by moving a finger across the touch pad. The trigger pads that were popular on the taktile are also provided, making it easy for anyone to create phrases intuitively. The trigger pads can also be used for drum input. Settings allow you to switch velocity on/off.

A synth engine that allows the fastest sound production

For the electribe, KORG designed a synth engine that gives you the maximum sound-creating freedom and the fastest sound production. The 409 oscillator waveforms include analog modeling and PCM. The analog modeling synth engine provides a broad variety ranging from simple basic waveforms to complex combinations such as dual, unison, sync, ring modulation, and cross modulation. The PCM sound engine provides mainly rhythm sounds, but also covers multisamples for keyboard. (collaborations with Sample Magic, Loopmasters, Prime Loops are included)

The filters at the heart of the sound-shaping capabilities are inherited directly from the KingKORG, and they use filter algorithms that simulate standard synthesizers so that you can get "the sound" which was used in famous songs, just by selecting the appropriate filter type.

You can also apply filters to drums to create rhythm tracks that are rich in tonal variation. Modulation can make sound-creation more complicated, but we've made it easy by condensing it down to three parameters: simply select a template that specifies an effect and its target, and then adjust the speed and depth of the effect to suit your taste.

Even deeper creative potential: Effects and Groove templates

The new electribe provides effects such as compression and overdrive for each part, giving you uncompromising control over the nuances of individual sounds that differ subtly between genres. The groove function can be specified for each part, letting you apply a groove to your phrase simply by selecting a template.

New functions for live performance: Master effects, Pattern sets, Sync in/out

The master effects can be controlled from the touch pad just like on the kaoss pad, and they include not only spatial-type effects that shape the overall acoustics but they also include effects that apply aggressively musical transformations such as the "Vinyl Break" effect inherited from the Kaoss pad series, and the newly developed "Seq Reverse" and "Odd Stepper" that change the playback order of the sequencer. These are also extremely effective for live performance. Insert effects can be assigned for individual parts, opening up even more complex sound-design possibilities.

There's also a "pattern set" function which lets you switch patterns by pressing trigger pads, and an "event recording" function that records that performance. In addition to MIDI IN/OUT, "Sync IN/OUT" is also provided, allowing synchronized performances with the volca series, monotribe, or MS-20 mini. The unit can run on six AA batteries, so you can easily take it along with you and perform anywhere, providing on-the-go inspiration your musical ideas.

A new workflow with Ableton Live

Transform inspiration into a creative production. KORG has collaborated with Ableton to offer a new music production workflow that combines the best of hardware and software. The electribe can internally save and export patterns in Ableton Live format. Individual patterns and parts are saved as scenes and clips in an Ableton Live Set. Use Live's powerful Session and Arrangement workflows to edit and and refine your ideas, perform or record new parts, arrange your ideas, and mix your song. The Korg electribe includes Live Lite.

Mr Alan Goodenough31st Dec 2020

It's been a while since I've used a hardware sequencer/aound module/synth... I could have just written groove box here... and I've found the Electribe 2 to very easy to get to grips with. Within minutes I was creating patterns and sounds and putting them together. Really looking forward to fully exploring this piece of hardware. The manual is a little sparse, but korg have downloads of extra bits so that's nice. Highly recommend from a newbie/returning user.

Like many creators Ive been tearing my self away from working entirely in front of a computer screen. I must say its been a great move creatively and very inspiring...... Just to getting back to being more hands on and experimental. The Elecrtribe has fitted in brilliantly with our other outboard gear and been a great addition and complemented our set up perfectly to this end...... allowing instant ideas to flow and develop that may never have happened otherwise.... don't hesitate if your on the cusp of going down this creative path .......nice!!

Will keep my busy learning the new kit for quite some time. Lovely solid piece of kit!

Great sounds but limited bar memory. Also , it's hard to remember what sound is on each pad.
