KORG iELECTRIBE Gorillaz Edition

The iElectribe is one of the best iPad music creation Apps so I’m into this limited edition. Do you really think they are going to stop selling it after 10,000 copies are sold?

“Korg has teamed up with the hugely popular and globally successful virtual band Gorillaz to create a new dedicated beatbox for the iPad: The iELECTRIBE Gorillaz Edition. A limited run of 10,000 units released at a very special price of US$9.99. The iELECTRIBE Gorillaz Edition features: a unique design and synthesizer engine including 128 new sounds created by Gorillaz; and 64 ready-to-use pre-programmed patterns by the sound team Gorillaz, Stephen Sedgwick, and Korg.” – Gwen Alexander

iPad Drum Machine Loops

2 Korg iElectribe Loops by thingstocome

Funkbox iPad -TR-808 Loop by thingstocome

So I’ve had my iPad for about a week and I can say it actually is a very different experience than the iPhone. Case in point the are drum machine Apps above. Funkbox on the iPhone is ok but I never really used it past a novelty show off item. On the iPad I can sit comfortably and knock out loops with pleasure. The iElectribe really knocks you out. It feels like hardware. Fanboyism aside if you have not had a chance to play with these and you make electronic music go do so.

Is it real or Memorex?

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
