The snare problem: You can get more powerful snares (and a little more 909like if that's what you really want) by ring modulating first two oscillators. The snares sound a bit shite on their own but they still seem to sit nicely in the mix (as do the rest of the sounds). Can't understand the other negative comments about the sound (although something other than 909 copy hihats etc would have been nice). I have 808 & 606 and ER sounds 'alive' to me in the way the 808 does but Sample machines never did - very colourful. Only other minor irritation - not enough outs (So i'd give it four and a half if they's let me).

I just got one this thing is very,very cool! I love it I own a bunch of korg stuff I They go all out when they build a piece of gear. So if you need a beat box or you already have one this would be an addition to yor sound. If you tweek it and spend some time with it you can get Bass sounds out of it.

The ER-1 is a tweaker's wet dream. These little boxes produce some of the most amazing soundsscapes using relatively simple effects (mod speed, mod depth, etc.). The four drum parts are totally tweakable from venerable q-tip stabs to long silky slides of festive synth to fuzzy bass kicks.. There's really no limitation to the sonic landscapes this box can create.

Contrary to popular belief, the audio-in is God. I have patched the first audio-in to my VCR tuner (the Christian channel, no doubt) and the second to my turntables / Roland Juno. There's magic in that machine when I get kinky with the audio-in!

The only problems I see in this box are few and far between. Firstly, there's no real good "standard" snare sfx (but who needs that in a tweakbox). The other problem is that the knobs are a little too small and a little too close together. My lanky fingers keep bumping into neihboring knobs when scritch-scratchin.`

All in all I am thuroughly happy with the Electribe R (and you can hear it every other Wednesday on my internet radio show -

Hi all. I took my my ER-1 out live for the first time, and I must say there is one feature which annoys me. When select a new pattern it starts with every part unmuted. This is of course a drawback when you want to do continuous mixes. It would have been VERY nice if you could save the muted/unmuted settings in your pattern. Props for Roland to include this feature on their MC-303 as this saved me yesterday.
