If you do anything electronic...THIS IS FOR YOU. I use it with Korg EA-1(basslines) and Korg microKORG(extra noise) to name some, and this combination kicks ass. I haven´t found almost any bad things about electibe R. Only things are that 1.it doesnt have any computerbased editor(not that I know.If there is please inform). It would be a great help to arrange the patterns on a screen (and sound editing could be neat too!). 2.there is only L/mono and R outs. I have wondered if I should do a "breakoutbox" with individual outs for all sounds (I have done it to my 606 and it helps a lot). You just can´t hype this machine too much.

I've had the ER-1 for nearly a year now and i just think it plain rocks very punchy i get a great 909 Kick, PCM sounds claps,hi hat are tweakable too so you can create very funky danceable trax add in the synth section which is limited to 4 parts but is amazingly organic and fresh i've recently bought a TB-303 and this box is ideal for adding blips and bleeps to the action. saying that though the EA is a wicked companion for this beatbox too .... all in all i highly rate the ER-1 as a exciting, different, easy to use versatile piece of gear highy recommended

I think the ER-1 is more an Electro/Minimal Add-on-drummachine. Good to add some squeaky bleeps and beeps to elekto-tracks (not my kind of musik). With the ES-1 you can do lots of stuff, since you can load yor own stuff from the PC and have effects and can motion sequence them - but i use it for vocal-samples only. If you want a really good drummachine for techno, try the Quasimidi Rave-o-Lution309 or the Raven. These are my Favorite machines. Even if they are old, and Quasimidi dont exist no more (so no support, but I never needed it anyways), i get the best results out of these Boxes. The 309 you can get on ebay very cheap. If i could effort it, i would get an Elektron machinedrum, but its very expensive (that wasnt meant to be compared to the ER). I'm looking forward to the new Electribe MX-1, then i'll sell my R, S and A -Tribes and get the MX (maby 2), since they have lots of new features that I'm missing till now.

Back to the Topic, the ER sounds like wiered fruity-loops stuff or ... how to say, just not very impressive. lacks punch (maby you can get over that with external effects, but thats not the sense of a drummachine i think), and somehow not very original to me. But go and get youself a picture of it before you buy it, maby you like it.

However, enjoy making music. Tom

if u want real drum sounds go get an early 1990's machine, like a boss dr-550. most new drum machines are either analog or analong wannabe's. or you can get an ES-1 like ted said, that way you can sample in ANY drum sound you want. i have the ES-1 it's ok for me right now, but it lacks a few things that i need desperately, like if im trying to do a drum roll with a bass drum really fast it cuts itself off and loses all the "punch". these electribes are NOT good for HARD techno like gabber where high bpm speed and lots of bass drum rolls are needed, i also dont like the cunstruction quality, VERY cheep feeling. if korg spent more time on the sequencer and less time on the worthless built in effects i'd b happy.

I bought the Electribe ER-1 when it was released way back in 1999 and still love it. It won't produce real-drums (try the Electribe ES-1 instead) but has the best bass drum ever plus really cool noizy bleeps of all kinds... (^_^)
