  • New Electribes?

    So the newer line of Electribes. Any one use these as a sequencer for external gear? The manual does not really seem to give to much info on this. Going through gear changes and considering selling the the Monomachine and going for a cheaper device...

    I THEENK old and new are the same except the card storage. I have an old and have not used as sequencer, but I don't think it works WELL for that. I think you can make patterns and have it trigger external gear, but not really record like a real sequencer.... not toally sure, but it doesn't seem well suited for that

      The new one has a few changes besides the card storage

      1) rocker power switch
      2) new power adapter and no more 4 pin din
      3) 1/4" jack for input

      And yes you can sequence external gear with them, but it i will still trigger the internal synth. You can't just change the volume of the part, because it will affect the external sound module. IMO there should be a setting for local on/off per part

        The Korg EMX-1 is prolly the one you're thinking of.. I've had a couple people rave about them for sequencing ext gear... and yes, it's much cheaper than a Elektron.
        play Splelunker ... I dare you.

            I used one a bunch for triggering external gear such as samplers. It worked fine from what I remember.
            I synth, therefore I am.

                    i keep reading about knob jitter issues with the electribes. i am under the impression the problem is only with the ESX and EMX models. is this really a prevalent issue and would this issue mean it would make sense to purchase one of these newer SD models if one were to buy a ESX or EMX? and can someone comment on the arepggiator strip? do you use it often? to me, it seems like a main selling point of either machine, but not having access to one it is tough to know how useful it actually is.

                      I own both the ESX-1 SD and EMX-1 SD, haven't noticed any knob jitter on either one. The arppegiator is a lot of fun to use, but it wasn't the main selling point for me. Personally I love the motion sequences, they're a very powerful tool.

                          They are, but then again, the TB-303 was originally made as a toy for n00bs back in the day.

                              why would you prefer the older one over the new?
