Korg iElectribe for iPad

KORG iELECTRIBE for iPad : Preview from KORG iELECTRIBE on Vimeo.

Well that didn’t take long! Here’s the first hot music App for the iPad: Korg iElectribe (iTunes link). A fully featured Electribe-R drum machine for $9.99. I’ve found that recording audio from my iPhone into Ableton has a different “out of the box” feel to the sounds when compared to VSTs. This is going to be fun!

“Korg’s ELECTRIBE·R has been coveted by dance musicians for ten years running. Today, this indispensable instrument has been reborn as a dedicated iPad app – the KORG iELECTRIBE virtual analog beatbox! Simply choose a part (or sound) and touch the 16-step sequencer to quickly build a groove. This easy-to-use interface combines forces with the iPad’s 9.7” multi touch display to offer an intuitive “hardware” feel, sure to inspire and captivate the imagination of any user. The iELECTRIBE faithfully recreates the historic ELECTRIBE·R’s entire sound engine and sequencer capabilities. In addition, it provides advanced Motion Sequencing, eight supercharged effect types, plus 64 new preset patterns that instantly allow the user to create music in a wide variety of dance and electronic music styles.” – Korg.com

  1. Wow, I’m surprised that a major manufacturer has released something like this so quickly. Then again, the Korg software for the Nintendo DS was a good indicator they might do something like this. But the Electribe? I wouldn’t have thought that. Very. very cool. And the price is impressive. Count me in.
