Korg Electribe ES1 Rhythm Production Sampler

   0 reviews  -  4236 views

    In 2000 Korg released the ES-1 Rhythm Production Sampler. The ES-1 is an easy to use and unique rhythm production sampler that uses DSP synthesis technology to allow anyone from beginners to professionals to create truly original music.

    You can assign sampled sounds to parts, use the panel knobs and keys to process the sound intuitively, and use these sounds to easily create rhythm patterns. The ES-1 is the ideal tool for any musician, DJ, soundcreator, or DTM user who wants more originality in their musical creations.

    Main features

    • A rhythm production sampler in which samples recorded by the user can be assigned to ten sample parts (including one Slice Sample part). The sound of each part can be processed as desired.

    • Up to 150 sounds (100 monaural, 50 stereo) sampled by the user can be saved in internal memory (to a maximum total of 95 seconds of monaural sampling).

    • Parts (created by editing samples) can be combined with rhythms to create patterns, letting you use the ES-1 as a totally new type of rhythm machine.

    • Up to 128 patterns (maximum of 64 steps) can be created using the Sample data and stored in internal memory.

    • The ES-1 provides a Motion Sequence function that can record and loop knob movements, and can be recorded for each part of each pattern.

    • The sixteen step keys (grid) provide the ideal way to step-record rhythm patterns. It’s also easy to record in real-time.

    • Since sounds and rhythm patterns can be modified instantly, you can use these changes as part of your performance expression.

    • By combining multiple patterns and adding event data such as knob movements, you can create and save up to sixteen songs.

    • Eleven types of effects and delay are provided.

    • The Pattern Set play function lets you register 64 different patterns to the 16 step keys, and successively select and play them.

    • Tap Tempo and MIDI Clock can be used to synchronize the performance with an external sequencer, turntable, etc.

    • The ES-1 can be controlled from an external sequencer or keyboard as a MIDI sound module.

    • Sample sounds, patterns, and songs you create can be stored on SmartMedia.

    • WAVE files or AIFF files you created on a computer etc. can be loaded and used as samples.
