I like the flexibility of the ES-1. Sometimes I use it just for rhythm in a song but sometimes it takes over the lead as well with all the effects and filtering options. I haven't been able to load any .aif files stored on a computer into the ES-1 yet but just read a tip at that might fix my problems with that.

The only other things I could think of that I wasn' happy with was the sound quality and cheap construction. It seems be a little thin or a little compressed when playing samples back and I am not sure if its the 16bit converters or what. I have went back to creating drum loops on my synth sometimes to get a thicker sound. Also, its a very tedious little plastic box that will hender playback if tilted at deep angles or moved too suddenly. If they were going to make it so small, they should have really emphasised the portability of the it by enclosing in much more rigid casing and maybe even a battery option since it runs on 9 volts. This would be great for long trips.

This thing is absolutely fantastic!

I've been looking over Electribe ER, EA, and Roland MC303, trying to figure out which one would be the best buy for me. And then someone mentioned to me that there's electribe es which is a sampler, and I went to Sam Ash music today to check it out. They only had one of it left, and I knew that sweet little thing was waiting for me. So I took out all my money and bought it.

It amazes me how small this thing can be, and yet has great sounds and samples with so many options. I'm just so glad that I bought this.

Only problem may be that those smart media cards are expensive. Other than that, this is really great tool to use. I'm gonna start working on my tracks right now so so long everybody~ =P

I recommend this thing to everyone!

This sampler is pretty damn phat. The sequencer takes sampling to a new level, so much more fun than my old akai s2000. I have my 777 hooked through the audio-in for live performance and the sync'd delay and filter sounds great.

Negative:One output really blows. I wish they could somehow make an output expander. A great live instrument, but could really be a hassle in a studio.

Overall a great machine. Makes sampling fun again.

please ignore the following post. in windows or on a mac or on your atari, whatever:

simply rename your file 00 or 99, as andy from korg previously told us.

sorry for my previous long-winded post. i misunderstood him.

pacers can still die, tho.

enjoy the music!

Well, I have found that there is a slight omission from the Electribe-S manual that should solve your problems.

NOTE: to sample-load from the Smartmedia to the ES-1

In the case of .WAV files and .AIFF files, only filenames consisting of a two-digit number plus an extension will be recognized; e.g., "00.wav" or "99.aif". If both ".wav" and ".aif" files of the same two-digit number exist, the .WAV file will take priority.

Hope this helps, Best Wishes Andy Lewis Korg UK Product Specialist
