Korg announces next generation of the Electribe Music Production Station

Korg has announced the next generation of the Electribe Music Production Station.

Empowering musicians to compose in a creative and influential way, the new Electribe has evolved to include such features as polyphonic synth playback, sixteen freely-assignable parts, and compatibility with Ableton Live.

Featuring sixteen back- lit Trigger pads and an intuitive X/Y Touch pad, the new Electribe is easy enough for a beginner to understand, yet sophisticated enough to satisfy even the most experienced performers. Due to its sleek, compact design and battery power (optional AC adapter available), users can easily compose and play any style of electronic music, no matter where they are.

The new Electribe's synthesis includes 409 waveforms, covering analog modeling and sample playback. The advanced analog modeling is distilled from the KingKORG synthesizer, and includes filters that model those of classic analog synthesizers. The synth engine is capable of unison, sync, ring modulation, cross modulation, and much more. The PCM portion provides numerous rhythmic samples, but also includes some multi-samples for keyboard input. Collaborations with Sample Magic, Loopmasters, and Prime Loops are also included in the Electribe.

The Electribe's evolved step sequencer allows the player to create patterns while receiving visual feedback and instantly hearing the set changes. The pads can function as a chromatic keyboard for real-time input, or as a traditional step sequencer. The "Motion Sequence" function records knob and button operations, and plays them back to create smooth or stepped modulation and other effects.

The X/Y Touch pad has several functions, such as a Kaossilator-style "Touch Scale, " which plays a scale when the player slides a finger across the pad. It can also control effects and modulation sources. Effects such as compression and overdrive are provided for each part, allowing each of the sixteen available parts to have their own sonic signature. Groove templates can also be specified for each part. Live performance is more intuitive than ever, due to the "Pattern Set" function which allows the player to instantly switch patterns by pressing the Trigger pads.

Based on a partnership with Ableton, the new Electribe features the ability to export Ableton Live clips, enabling a direct link between Electribe production and one of the world's most popular DAWs. In addition to MIDI IN/OUT, Sync IN/OUT jacks are provided, allowing synchronized performances with the Volca series, Monotribe, or MS-20 Mini.

Pricing and availability TBA.
