The Electribe series has a new addition to the family, The Electribe-M it's
-"the next step in the evolution of Korg's
ELECTRIBE series. Now you can focus on creating scorching dance tracks
with one easy-to-use production tool. "
Ooh, sounds good - but just how good?
We whipped out the DAT and ran off a quick demo for you. It seems to have quite an engine under that little hood.

o Access a huge array of sounds and phrases covering the latest dance
Pinpointing that key sound or groove is how it all starts. At Korg,
we've had years of experience in creating and molding all the cutting-
edge sounds you need. The Electribe-M comes packed with a staggering
144 drum waves include vintage kicks, snares, classic electronic tones,
cymbals, hi-hats percussion and more. Its 50 synth waveforms cover
everything from deep bass tones and vintage analog synth waves, to
moving modulation timbres like sync and PWM, plus chord tones, various
hits and sound effects. We've even included various patterns covering
the latest dance music styles such as Techno, Trance, House, 2step,
Drum'n'Bass, R&B, and Big Beat, so that you can produce tracks quickly
o Step sequencer for easy creation of rhythm patterns and phrases
The Electribe-M features the classic 16-keypad, illuminated
interface found on all Electribe dance tools. You can see the rhythm or
phrase at a glance, allowing quick production of completed tracks. The
ELECTRIBE-M provides up to eight drum parts and two synth parts for
extensive production possibilities. Each pattern can be from 1-4 bars
long, and each Song can hold a maximum of 256 patterns, and up to
o "Motion Sequence" function that memorizes knob movements
The ELECTRIBE-M features Korg's unique "Motion Sequence function"
that can memorize the movements of knobs used to vary the volume,
panning or filter cutoff of a phrase you create. You can record two
Motion Sequences per Drum Part, and up to three per Synth Part for
amazingly alive and animated phrases.
o A variety of effects for applying radical changes to the sound
You can use two different effects at a time in a Pattern to create a
highly polished mix. Eleven different Insert effect choices are
available, and you can choose to send parts individually to your selected
effect or not. The eleven types of Insert effect include standards such
as Reverb and Flanger/Chorus, as well as unique effects such as
Decimator, Resonator, and Ring Modulator. A Master Delay effect is also
available, which can sync to the tempo of your Pattern. Each effect can
be edited directly with dedicated knobs, and can of course be controlled
by separate Motion Sequences.
o Newly developed Drive effect
The Drive effect newly developed for the ELECTRIBE-M is
indispensable when creating sounds with attitude and "bite." When
lightly applied to overdrive synth sounds, it gives the sound much more
presence. When applied heavily and used in conjunction with filter
resonance, it can generate extreme and intense new timbres.
o Pattern performance with an emphasis on realtime operation
Tweak the ELECTRIBE-M's knobs, and use realtime functions such as
Part solo/mute to produce a wide range of variations from a single
pattern. You can even use the Pattern Set function to arrange up to 64
Patterns across the step keys, and then switch patterns in realtime by
simply touching the keys.
o Synchronization with other models of the ELECTRIBE series
You can synch the ELECTRIBE-M with other models of the ELECTRIBE
series such as the ELECTRIBE-A, ELECTRIBE-R, and ELECTRIBE-S simply
by connecting a MIDI cable. Plus you can use the Electribe-M as a step
sequencer for external tone generator modules, or connect it to a
computer for running alongside another sequencing program or as a tone
