Announcing the ELECTRIBE-M, the next step in the evolution of Korg's ELECTRIBE series. Now you can focus on creating scorching dance tracks with one easy-to-use production tool.

With powerful new sounds and the same motion sequence functionality featured on other ELECTRIBE models, the new ELECTRIBE- M enables you to create an entire song with a single piece of gear. Plus, its easy operation and killer sounds help you to produce sophisticated music quickly and easily.

Access a huge array of sounds and phrases covering the latest dance music styles
Pinpointing that key sound or groove is how it all starts. The Electribe-M comes packed with 144 drum waves include vintage kicks, snares, classic electronic tones, cymbals, hi-hats percussion and more. Its 50 synth waveforms cover everything from deep bass tones and vintage analog synth waves, to moving modulation timbres like sync and PWM, plus chord tones, various hits and sound effects. They've even included various patterns covering the latest dance music styles such as Techno, Trance, House, 2step, Drum'n'Bass, R&B, and Big Beat, so that you can produce tracks quickly and easily.

Step sequencer for easy creation of rhythm patterns and phrases
The Electribe-M features the classic 16-keypad, illuminated interface found on all Electribe dance tools. You can see the rhythm or phrase at a glance, allowing quick production of completed tracks. The ELECTRIBE-M provides up to eight drum parts and two synth parts for extensive production possibilities. Each pattern can be from 1-4 bars long, and each Song can hold a maximum of 256 patterns, and up to 35,700 events!

"Motion Sequence" function that memorizes knob movements
The ELECTRIBE-M features Korg's unique "Motion Sequence function" that can memorize the movements of knobs used to vary the volume, panning or filter cutoff of a phrase you create. You can record two Motion Sequences per Drum Part, and up to three per Synth Part for amazingly alive and animated phrases.

A variety of effects for applying radical changes to the sound
You can use two different effects at a time in a Pattern to create a highly polished mix. Eleven different Insert effect choices are available, and you can choose to send parts individually to your selected effect or not. The eleven types of Insert effect include standards such as Reverb and Flanger/Chorus, as well as unique effects such as Decimator, Resonator, and Ring Modulator. A Master Delay effect is also available, which can sync to the tempo of your Pattern. Each effect can be edited directly with dedicated knobs, and can of course be controlled by separate Motion Sequences.

Newly developed Drive effect
The Drive effect newly developed for the ELECTRIBE-M is indispensable when creating sounds with attitude and "bite." When lightly applied to overdrive synth sounds, it gives the sound much more presence. When applied heavily and used in conjunction with filter resonance, it can generate extreme and intense new timbres.

Pattern performance with an emphasis on realtime operation
Tweak the ELECTRIBE-M's knobs, and use realtime functions such as Part solo/mute to produce a wide range of variations from a single pattern. You can even use the Pattern Set function to arrange up to 64 Patterns across the step keys, and then switch patterns in realtime by simply touching the keys.

Synchronization with other models of the ELECTRIBE series
You can synch the ELECTRIBE-M with other models of the ELECTRIBE series such as the ELECTRIBE-A, ELECTRIBE-R, and ELECTRIBE-S simply by connecting a MIDI cable. Plus you can use the Electribe-M as a step sequencer for external tone generator modules, or connect it to a computer for running alongside another sequencing program or as a tone generator.
