The ER-1 is a very nice drum-sizer. OK, it's not analogue, but it sounds great nevertheless. The only thing, I don't like is the fact, that there's only one stereo-output. It needs single outputs. 5 would have been great. 4 for the sizer-parts and one for the PCM-part.

I never got a manual with this box, so I never really explored making entire songs with it. Otherwise, I would say this is a decent drum machine. I find the design a little cheesy, and the construction feels pretty cheap; I wouldn't anticipate these things lasting a terribly long time. It sounds okay. It can do more than just drum sounds, which is nice. After a while , though, my sounds all started to sound alike. The snares are pretty weak, but like someone else said, layering helps, and I found using a ring mod on layered snares makes them even more punchy. I did crash on me once. I left the memory protect on, and when I fired it up, I had lost about 30 of my patterns. In their place were identical 300 bpm noise/delay beats. Anyone else experience anything like this? Overall, not terrible, but not exactly professional quality either.

great kicks,plus a way to make various analog-like perc.thats all.careful sequencing can have better 2nd choice on the electribes series(the 1st is es-1, but ea-1 is not good enough to have a posistion in my mind).if u can't afford a drumstation or u wanna make analog-like perc kits rather than 808/909 clones,it's for u.

There´s not much to say about this machine except that everybody should get one a.s.a.p. I think I´m very lucky to be an owner of this wonderful thing, I simply don´t know what to say......... Feelings and emotions I can´t describe!

The Korg ER-1 is right now my main drum machine. I agree with the reviews i have read about how they tend to sound plasticy on head phones but with real good speakers or being drowned in a mix it can sound more professional. Well...i say that the kick sound is very unique. I've tried but without luck getting a 909 or 808 kind of sound but maybe its just me. I like the kick sound tho. It comes in between a 909 and 808 and to me its something new and not the same old kicks u hear most of the time. The snare can be abit weak. I like the hi and lo hats ...and clap is quite strong as well..You can also create wierd noises with this thing rather than just look at it with a drum machine..The INput is a bonus...great feature...I would have really liked a master filter..(cut off and resonanse)...All and all I like it. And thats my personal opinion. ...I hear there is a new electribe coming out soon that combines the synth, drum machine and sampler...i might be wrong..or it might be out...Shine on
