KORG ELECTRIBE SERIES – ESX EMX ES1 EA1 etc.

Korg Korg Synth overview..

Korg ELECTRIBE SERIES
die bisherigen electribes – the current electribes are:

  • er1 mkII re-released 64step variations in a new case like x-machines (sx/mx).successor of er1 – no rolls/flam. (brown)
  • ea1 mkII re-released 64step variations in a new case like x-machines (sx/mx).successor of ea1 – (no roll) – green
  • es1 mkII re-released 64step variations in a new case like x-machines (sx/mx).successor of es1 – (flam/roll incl.) – silver
    NOTE mk2 models:
    the only difference of the mk2 models is the new case and knobs.. technically it’s the same as the older ones.. the wah FX is replaced by mod delay and on the r mk2 ringmod is replaced by crossmod.
  • es1 – Electribe S – sampler (with roll function) – green
  • er1 – Electribe R – VA drum synthesizer (no roll) – red
  • em1 –Electribe M – Rompler and 2 monophonic melodic sequences (with roll) – black
  • ea1 – Electribe A – the VA synthesizer with 2 melodic sequencer (but no accents, no roll/flam) – blue
  • emx1-Electribe MX – Rompler, 5 monophonic melodic sequences (with roll), 128 steps,synthesizer, 3 FX
  • esx1- Electribe SX – the SAMPLER – 2 melodic tracks, 2 for loops, 1 slicer (like the old s), similar to mx features but expanded memory and tubes,too.. reads old es1 files: samples/patterns but only ONE at once!!! the x-tribes (mx,sx) can write to card that can be edited by a pc or mac / same format but no folders. the new tribe sx also allows real names,but they are shortened to less chars ,anyway you can upload it.. ;)
  • those electribe models will be called by their short name means: esx1 = just sx and the es1 is just the “s”..
    there is no difference between emx,mx,emx1 and mx1 its all the new one with valves, same with the other tribes: the es1 is the same as s , s1 or something means the old sampling electribe, if an X is in it’s the new one ;)..

what about “flam/roll”? roll is a function to make the event that you set (roll is also event-oriented) to play 2-4 faster-than-the-rhythm-grid roll/flam of the instrument! so this makes a very interesting drum and bass machine!! only in the MX,SX,ES1,EM1

want to use the electribe as a sequencer for synthesizers connected via midi? well yyou should then go for an electribe that has a melody part: these are ESX, EMX, EA, EM (read: sx,mx,a,m). they all have at least 2 melody parts, the mx has 5 of them to control internal or/and external synthesizers/samplers. if you want to trigger a drum module it is ok to use all other tribes as well!!

for questions, sounds/patterns and stuff a good source is the electribe mailing list: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/electribe/
or better: go to the forum
DIFFERENCE

the smaller tribes all have things in common: they all have 4 measures (64steps = 16×4)), the big ones (MX,SX) have 8 (128steps=16×8). the X/big ones also have 3 FX busses and more synthesis features and Standard Controllers whilst the smaller ones use NRPN Controllers (csacaded controllers, can be recorded but hard to edit). also the big ones can write a pattern while playing and will save the pattern with the current MUTE settings. the smaller ones can be edited while playing, too but to store the pattern you need to stop the machine, the mutes are always ignored, so you need to mute it all with quick fingers when going to another pattern on the smaller ones.. ah, the big ones got the valves in it.. but you can only use them on master out.. anyway the big ones got a better routing and 4 outs (instead of just 2)

the mk2 tribes offer almost the same exept the mod delay replaces the wah effect and on the r mk2 crossmodulation replaces ringmod.

the sample tribes: the tribe S / ES / ES1 (or the mk2 version which is the same but with nicer metal case and silver instead of green): all work with 4MB of ram and 32khz, the ESX has a real filter with envelope and resonance, you can set the start point and have the LFO for mod purpose and 44.1khz sample rate! and of course much ore RAM: 25MB and more memories (256 instead of 99 on the es1)
the es and sx are the only SAMPLE based tribes!
there are rom based samples in the MX and M ! but you can not use your own samples here.. the mx is a synthesizer, a bit like a smaller version of the korg prophecy.. ;) means: you got FM (PD) kind of models along with sync or even chords.. but you only got very few parameters that get to live using the motion recording / lfos etc..

the first smaller tribes (EA and ER) do not provide velocity control ,you need to record the level with motion record!! there is no accent! and no roll/flam (thats the korg word for retriggering a sound within the 16step grid with double or more speed .. for snare roll/flam and dnb kind of stuff or autechre like hihat clounds.. ;))

melodies: can only be made with the melody tracks on tribes a,m,mx,sx,a mk2.. if you want it to control midi gear you need them! if you do not need to control external synths you can just record the pitch on an ES1,r,r mk2 and play “melodies” with the drumparts!! no problem! but it will trigger the same midi note..!! the drum parts can also be used for this!! so you can also “play melodies” on any tribe but it will still send only ONE note pitch via midi because the pitch is stored and controlled via “motion control” .. you can reacord midi keyboard played notes or use the step keys as a keyboard or use the step mode..

the new small korg electribe series es mk2, ea mk2 and er mk2
the es1 mk2 has the same features as the old es1 exept the new nice matal casing

the er is of course still a VA drum machine – it does not emulate a certain model eg. TR808 but it is capable to making sound like those electro-style older drum machines. the roll function is still not there – there is only the crossmodulation instead of ringmod to make more drastic sounds.

the new ea mk2 is also quite like the original xept the cooler mx/sx-style metallic case
photos by korg, japan
the case is different and they have now crossmod instead of ringmod for the er drums as effects. most features sound like a slightliy updated old series..

KORG ELECTRIBE MX (or/oder: emx , emx1 , mx 1)
and KORG ELECTRIBE SX (esx1 – or: esx , sx , sx1) sampling electribe
–> the electribe series list..
–> mx trick: a nice hihat / cymbal a la TR808 on the MX

korg electribe sx + mx = emx1 and esx1
– the top models of the electribe series (m,s,a,r)
with valve sound. all out since 2003..

basic sequencer concepts klick SEQ in the menu / sequencer basics erklärt in der SEQ sektion!!

BTW: 2 ECC 83 by R*F*T (german valves) do the electro harmonix valves made in russia.. may sound nicer..korg electribe sx
the new esx1 – sampling electribe.. announced to be out in october 2003 (well, ..)
has: 9 one shot samples, 2 loop samples (follow the tempo change!) called stretch part, and the well known slicer (the es has it ,too) aaand: play melodies : 2 tracks are reserved for this.. so if you want a seuqencer for some gear: get the mx (see below!!) .. or find 2 melodic track good enough (there are only 4 melodic electribes out.. mx,sx,m and a)..
anyway the sample capacity grew to 4.75mins samping (about 4 times more), the FX are like the mx: 3 FX chain.
and you can save your pattern while playing (new, also in mx)
also: 8 16-step sections, filters and envelope (very small one) and /or lfo.
so: this is a nice sample-workstation for groovers..

filter difference Mx vs. Sx: the mx has also a drive parameter. both have lpf,hpf,bpf and bpf+ (which is quite large). all with resonance.

DIE PREISE und RELEASEDATES / PRICES / RELEASE DATE:
MX und SX were out 2003
Der Preis wird bei ca. 800,- Euro liegen. (Unverbindliche Preisempfehlung) price is 800 Euro
street: 720€.

KORG ESX1 OS: the OS is currently at 1.02
find out current version by holding down Shift + Pattern Key when Power on..
almost slightly debugged compared to earlier versions..
dont try this at home: hold cursor up and down and now you can update.. no idea about finding the current version ;)
os 1.02 is now the most recent version
.you can check this by checking your normalize menu, if you can set it to +12dB boost and the display says “Nrm/Lvl” it is alredy updated.. at least to 1.01.. if it says “Normaliz” it is still at 1.00
updates: some bug fixes in 1.02
the changelog is included on the download link above..
btw: organize those samples on the ESX with this (it’s pc only, unfortunately):
esx wave organizer
note: it is V0.1 3.. it does allow AIF since 0.13.. and there is no mac version.. anyway it is nice to have!!

seems he likes feedback so: give him the hint a mac version could be cool ;)
anyway it is a nice tool to have.. means: it is free, so this is a very nice to have..
it will support AIF soon!

Electribe MX Kommentar
Moogulator “Meinung

„Besserer Klang und konkurrenzlos livetauglich!“

Die MX hat einen deutlichen Schub an Fülle und Druck bekommen. 44.1kHz bringen nun auch die Drumsounds nach vorn. Neben den älteren Tribes klingt sie nun druckreich und voll. Im Livebetrieb ist der Umgang mit den 3 Effekten zunächst lernbedürftig, da bei den alten Modellen ein BPM-Delay am Ausgang immer zur Stelle war, muss man dies nun selber Organisieren. Das Routing und Umgang mit den Effektbussen, einmal gelernt, bietet dann aber wesentlich besserere und gezieltere Ergebnisse. Zur Zeit ist die Electribe MX die einzige, die auch während des laufenden Betriebs Lauflicht, bzw. Realtimeänderungen zulässt und diese auch, ohne stoppen, abspeicherbar sind. Die Synthesizersektion und die Filter bieten genug, um ein Drum’n’Bass Track komplett umzusetzen. Bandpassbässe setzen sich im Club gut durch. Da nun auch normale Controller genutzt werden können, ist sie auch einfacher im Handling. Die MX hat mit der Neufassung komplett gewonnen. Ich hätte mir nur gewünscht, die Röhren ebenfalls gezielt pro Sound routen zu können und nicht nur als „Mastereffekt“. Ansonsten ist es DIE Maschine für die Bühne. Der Arpeggiator ist daran auch nicht unschuldig..
but back to the mx, that is basically the same hardware:

BTW: 2 ECC 83 by R*F*T (german valves) do the electro harmonix valves made in russia.. may sound nicer..
korg electribe mx
it has 2 indiv. outs
the arp’er can be controlled via ribbon and slider:
add more or less notes and the way it reacts with them!
ext. signals can run through FX,used as osc or filters.
patterns can be saved while play! 3 FX sections (serial/parallel)
4 filter types incl resonance, lfo (bom synchable), valve sound – röhrensound/zerrung
8 takte/measures = 128 steps machbar/able.
FX wählbar pro pad (wie auch bisher) aber accent und swing pro part abschaltbar!!)
you can switch off accent or swing PER PAD!! auto bpm sync to external signals!
midi clockable lfo can be assigned to multiple destinations
207 drum and lead sounds as pcm, but no samples
reso filters for those 5 monophonic tracks, but you can use a so called unison osc to simulate chords!
the ribbon generates notes, the slider allowes some “jamming”.. this can be used to generate slow or very fast notes (drums or melodic)
so this is some kind of arpeggiator and event generator.. not bad for breaks.

beside it’s real new look it is bigger than the electribe series
you can record up to 24 movements of the knobs!!

new VALVE electribe from korg!! the electribe mx!
has 5 tracks of moss – like synths, touch-ribbon-like controller, 128 steps (!!!!)
3 FX, the vac. tube sound is the specialty but the arper and smart card and some synthesis features (reduced coming from the moss synths) you got 2 paramters to control vpm,unison,chord osc,pcm/samples (internal only!),wave shape (1 osc shapes another),comb,additive,207 drumsounds, 76 synth waves, multi mode filter (bpf,lpf,hpf,bpf+) ,lfo,eg ..
remember: it is a groovebox, so do not expect very complex patches.. but you got quite a lot of synth methods..
bpm detector (audio)
lots ot motiono sequences! (recording of CCs)
arpeggiator!
to be released and in the shops from now
app. price around 888E’z..
the arpers ribbon can be used to set gate length and many more.. so it is not only an arper but a “groove modulizer” ;)
FX: beside the known ones it has a talking modulator and a grain machine that can be used to “splatter” and scatter and mangle the sounds. it does not allow real “stopping” in a sample – it sounds very much like a delay-fx.. does this sound like a v-synth? ;) well.. NO!! this is an interesting “new school”-type of FX!!.. you can chain up to 3 FX units now!!..
imagine 2 grainalizers in a row!!.. it is more a resonator kind of fx..

out in JUNE/august 2003 – not final design (the screws will of course not show up in the final version– so you will not scratch your hands (well , I got no probs with this..).. just for the record ;) – the “tb303-type knobs” are bit smaller then the tb and made of metal/alu. ..btw: you can NOT use YOUR samples, the emx 1 is a “groove synthesizer” so do not try to compare it with mc909 or rs7000 but as a successor of the electribe m or better: the deluxe model!!.. but it HAS some samples for drums etc..
has 5 monophonic tracks and 9 drum tracks!! still the best live-able sequencer atm..

A SHORT “TRICK” for MX series – need another hihat? a cymbal of TR808 style?:
you need another hihat or electronic cymbal? just select unison mode, set it to 6 saw , put parameter 1 (detune) to maximum and the second OSC pitch to 0. now set the filter to hpf, add 11 o’clock drive and resonance and 14:00 o’clock filter and env int. – now you can set the env eg to falling wave (not the gate) and adjust the decay here..
voila: a playable hihat sound!

entgegen anderslautender infos: intern arbeitet die electribe mit 32khz wie wavestation auch, nur offiziell ist es 44.1khz. dennoch ist sie zzt der wohl geeigneteste rhythmussequencer. für melodien gibt es zzt noch kein ideal. electribe m ist schon gut, kann aber nicht alternativ die synthparts NUR auf midi ausgeben (synth steuern), kann nur accent (statt velocity) und nur 2 monosequencen, dafür aber ist sie die EINZIGE mit 64 steps und melodie plus rollfunktion (welche für neuere rhythmische musik sicher unumgänglich ist, wegen der auflösung, siehe drum n bass, clicks’n’cuts, intelligent electro und andere stile..
samperate ist 32khz intern. 44.1 extern. – man kann 44.1er samples nutzen,aber auch 32khz.
achja: als sequencer für externe geräte nur für drums sinnvoll,denn sie triggert nur einzelne noten, können aber evtl getuned werden,wie zB die S – meint: intern kann man einen pitchverlauf aufzeichnen und das als melodie nutzen.. aber es wird dennoch nach aussen einfach auf einer note rausgegeben ->wird das dennoch auf einer note gesendet, weil es ja ansihc nur ein trigger ist.. somit also nur intern nutzbar.. zum ansteuern für melodien ist es sicher besser auf eine m oder mx zuzugreifen.. die bieten die besten möglichkeiten.. notfalls auch die kleine a, die allerdings keinen ACCENT hat..

HOW TO UPDATE THE ES-1
0) Intert a Smartmedia into the CardR/W.
1) Copy the file “x829s._s” into the root directory on computer.
2) Insert the Smartmedia into the ES-1.

3)power it ON while pressing [Sample]$B!\(B[Grobal].
Here the display indicates “IPL” and then the indication changes from “000” to “048”. When it comes to “048”, it once disappears.

Second, while the “Write” LED is lighting, the indication in the display changes from “000” to “048”.$B!!!!(B

When “End” is indicated, the update is completed.

How to confirm this update:

Power ON while pressing [REC] and [STOP]. Initially, the version is indicated like 1.04.
Then, all the LEDs light up. After that, you can turn the power OFF.

NOTE:
1) While the “Write” LED is lighting, you must NOT turn the power OFF.
2) If the update does not start as the “Step” LED doet not light up, it is considered that the Smartmedia is not inserted properly. In this case, please insert it again.
3) When “E04” or “E08” is indicated instead of “End”, it is possible to consider that the ES-1 is diffective. In this case please contact KORG Inc.

Then, all the LEDs light up. After that, you can turn the power OFF.
NOTE:
1) While the “Write” LED is lighting, you must NOT turn the power OFF.
2) If the update does not start as the “Step” LED doet not light up, it is considered that the Smartmedia is not inserted properly. In this case, please insert it again.
3) When “E04” or “E08” is indicated instead of “End”, it is possible to consider that the ES-1 is diffective. In this case please contact KORG Inc.
korg electribe m
– groove synth und sequencer – extrem livetauglich!.. schwarz:
there is an editor available for the small m:
www.midiweb.de

its basically a rompler with some non-user-replaceble samples but it is the quickest “music notebook/scratchbook” you can have for this price.. when I say quick i mean: you need minimum time for making a song ready to produce.. ;)
korg electribe m

    Korg Kaoss Pad 1-3 – KP3 + Entrancer
    1) Kaos Pad 3
    the KP3 comes with an Editor, which allows 4 Slices (like on the Electribe S + SX), Controller Assignment and the 8×8 LEDs show you where you are and how the EQ is set to.. DJs will like the TAP tempo clock midi out feature..

    korg kaoss pad 3

    Das LED Gitter ist fein um sich die Positionen auf dem Pad zu merken oder mit dem 3 Band EQ zu spielen..
    Time Slice Funktion hat der Sampler im neuen Kaos Pad III. Pro Bank Taster 4 Takte maximal (Sample Kapazität). Die 4 Sample-Parts können gleichzeitig laufen (!)
    und: Auto BPM oder TAP Tempo Funktion mit MIDI Clock Ausgabe für DJs und Live-Musiker..


    2) Kaos Pad Entrancer – Video Kaos Pad..
    kaoss pad - entrancer
    It’s 2D pad controls audio and incoming video signals.. thats it.. but it is one of the most live-able FX machines available
    has the same functions as the korg kaoss pad (audio) but adds some video manipulation.. in fact is what the KP2 is for audio.. PLUS VIDEO..
    korg video mixer
    the korg video mixer.. but not much more than “mixing” images..

    3) Kaos Pads 2 + Kaos Pad 1
    they both allow control via xy pad, but the kp2 has midi, better sampling and more algorithms, you can even sync it up to midi clock (delays etc..)
