KORG ELECTRIBE-R mkII: Rhythm Synthesizer
The intuitively designed Electribe-R mkII is packed with phat innovative sounds produced by DSP synthesis technology, a classic interface for creating beats and tweaking them in realtime, and the ultimate array of up-to-date dance styles. The Electribe-R mkII is a new generation of rhythm machine that is enhanced by spontaneous knob-based editing of analog drums and sound effects. After you create your ultimate sounds, you can use the Electribe-R mkII's internal step-sequencer to create original rhythms. Sound editing is simple; just turn the knobs to adjust the various elements of the sound. You can use the onboard sounds in conjunction with the external audio input to create unconventional rhythms that have never been heard before.
A cross modulation function (replacing the previous Ring Mod) can be applied to percussion synthesizers 1 and 2 to take your DSP drum sounds into bold new timbral areas. Use it in combination with the motion sequence function to create unimaginably extreme sounds. You can also run two external sounds into the ER-1mkII. They can each be rhythmically gated in tempo with your music using the same simple step key interface. By using the knobs to modify the level, duration and panning of these external sounds, you can create truly unique and experimental rhythms.
The Electribe-R mkII's step sequencer lets you use the 16 pad keys to make rhythms from the sounds you create. Since you can hear the results as well as see them while you step-record, you can instinctively create cool patterns. Knob movements you make to edit the sound ? such as changing the volume of parts or opening/closing the filter ? can be recorded directly into the sequencer. You can use these to add timbral change to your phrases, panning and other motion-inducing fun. These motion sequences are saved in each pattern along with your sounds and phrases.
The ER-mkII also boasts a significantly expanded list of new preset patterns that cover every type of dance music from techno, house, trance, two-step, electro, R&B, hip-hop, drum'n'bass, big beat, IDM, trip-hop and lounge. This broad selection provides you with powerful grooves for your performances and production. You can control the Electribe-R mkII from an external MIDI sequencer, keyboard, sampler, or other device to integrate it into your current production and performance setup.Features:
