I have had this little gem for about 2 months and I Love it!! I have always wanted to get a machine that would let me make all those cool electronic drums you hear in old Yazoo, ultravox, depeche and Erasure songs. It's pure synth pop!! Bagging the Electribes is mindless when you take into account what they do for the tiny amount of money they cost. I'm so over this " it's not a 909" crap. If you really feel compelled to spend $1200 on a TR 909 Go right ahead. The rest of us will be more than happy with our little plastic rip off's, anyway thats what dance culture has always been about to me little and plastic and fun rave on!!!!!

Just bought it two weeks ago, not bad at all. I think I'll need some more time o test it better but it doesen't deserve for shure 1 F.C.S.!! I use it to play psychedelic trance and it is very usefull for that kind of music especially bass drums and strange noises. Open hats are good, closed hats are not so thight but usable ( 909 CH are unbeatable ),the only really weakpoint are snare drums. Anyway I use it with cubase VST and with audio recording ER 1 becomes a huge font of drum sounds. Korg is serious mates, rarelly comes with total shit like some other companies we all know.BOM

It doesn't sound like real drums (buy a sampler for that), it is not an all-in-one groove aproved box (like overprized MC-303/505), but it DOES ELECTRONIC ANALOG-IN-YOUR-FACE RHYTHMS !!!! Versatile, cheap and powerful for what it is made..... (and tags along well with Virtual Analog like my AN1x....)

Good work Korg Guys !!!

I bought a ER-1 after making my mind over a MC-x0x, with the following reason: I was looking for an ELECTRONIC DRUM-BOX !!!

It is not an all-in-one like the MC-x0x series, doing everything but none perfectly....

The ER-1 is what is meant to be: A RHYTHM SYNTHESIZER !!! With a VIRTUAL ANALOG aproach...

It sounds TRUE ELECTRONIC (remember Kraftwerk?) and also sounds TRUE ANALOG .....

Creation of wierd and phatt sounds and rhythms couldn't be easier...

Thanks to all the guys at Korg !!!

Just wanted you to know that apparently the ER-1 is used by Apollo 440 and The Orb, as they are showing it off on a CD-ROM included with Future Music. Although I don't know if Korg didn't give it to them for free so they would make an advert, but they do sound enthusiastic about it.

I think it IS a great machine, but you have to use it along other machines. I use it along an MC-303 and a SU-10. This way I can run a breakbeat on the SU-10, some 808 stuff from the MC-303 and all types of bleeps from the ER-1. But it is definitely not an x0x box. Some kind of multi-fx would have been nice.
