Korg Electribe BL

Korg Electribe BLThe electribe is a synthesizer-based production machine that turns inspiration into sound at maximum speed. It contains numerous analog oscillators and a wide variety of filters. Whether you’re selecting sounds or editing them, all operations are performed simply by using the top panel knobs. In addition, a variety of input interfaces optimized for inputting rhythm, bass, or melody allow you to smoothly create sequences as fast as you can think. The sequences that you create can then undergo additional evolution on stage or in your laptop. You can enjoy intuitive live performances that link various devices with the electribe, or utilize this capability for full-fledged music production by exporting sequence data to Ableton Live for detailed editing and final mixing. The latest system version 2 adds a much-requested pattern chain function that will be a great asset for live performances or music production. The lineup has also become more colorful with the new metallic blue model. And we’ve also provided bonus patterns that reveal even greater sonic potential. Making your beat-making ideas rapidly take shape. It’s the electribe; a synthesizer + sequencer that’s thoroughly optimized for speed. Following the chic gray unit, the lineup has been joined by a metallic blue model that’s reminiscent of the previous model, the ELECTRIBE MX.
