Not just a drum machine, but a drum synthesizer as well. In other words you can actually create your own drum sounds through synthesis and then program patterns and songs from there. Like all the other older electribes this thing is really easy to program and perform on. Hook it up to an electribe ea1 and you got a slammin electronic performance/production center. The best part is that you can these really cheap off ebay (usually between $100-$150 bucks.)

I've owned the ER-1 since day 1 it got out and have love the VERY easy, intuitive user interface. You can get great sounding patterns in minutes.

The sounds are OK and i agree with some reviewers that they sound all kindof electro. blips and squeals are very easy with this machine. you can get a very fat kick drum a la tr-909, add a bit of compression and it is very usable. the samples (hi hat, snare, ride...0 are very weak and lame.

all in all a very good rhythm machine for beginners and even pro's can use it in conjunction with other gear now and then (especially the Kick). After you master this (in about 1 day) you are ready to move on to other grooveboxes a la Roland mc-909 or Yamaha RS7000, Radikal Technologies Spectralis, if you're looking for something special.

Great and easy to program. If you apply some external processing this can sound awesome. My only problem with it is the lack of effects. The delay can sound good but cant be applied to individual sounds.

I used to feed this back on itself using the audio ins from the aux sends on my mixer to gate in feedback pulse patterns. sounds awesome and can be a really insping machine to mess about with, especially when linked to other kit.

Although i've sold mine id consider getting another when i have the money

Ok I've had the ER1 and EA1 for about 5 years now and I've always loved the ER1 as a second, mainly electro sounding drum machine. Recently I discovered the best feature on this thing.... the two audio inputs. Call me stupid for not figuring this out before but take a cheap old drum machine that has individual outs (say the tr707) and send the bass drum to audio input-1 and the snare to audio input-2. Then assign the ER to play the midi note associated with the bass and snare on the tr707. Then you have a seriously awesome drum machine setup because the audio inputs are affected by the amp and delay sections (excluding decay). Crank up the Low Boost on the input part you put the bass drum on and viola a pretty convincing 909! Stick a distortion pedal in the line with the tr707's snare. For more fun mod the parts with the 4th synth part. Also it's fun to do rolls with the delay...
