The EM has 50 synth waveforms to pick from. You can tweak them with the filter and effects. There's 144 separate drum sounds too. EM plus microkorg would be a reasonable combination.

And +1 for the ghostradio videos.

Oh yeah.... EM1 (and I guess all the older electribes) is a really fun grab-and-go groovebox to mess around with for ideas. I keep mine handy to use whenever I feel like just sitting and chilling out.

Actually this is incorrect too, the EA-1 and ER-1 were developed from the Korg Z1's analogue tone modelling generators. Both these units appeared before the microKORg and MS2000.

seems you don't know, whether you have owned all the electribe series or not!

I was just trying to say that I have actual experience with each one, excluding the emx. I try to never give advice on stuff I have no first hand experience with. I should have been clearer and I admittedly worded it in a way which sounds a bit smug, this was unintentional. I'm sorry that your shocked and appalled by a minor technicality. Jesus Christ they're both digital emulations of analog synthesis, but I am correct in stating the EM1's oscillators are samples, not any kind of digital emulation. In regards to the faulting knobs, one can look up "knob jitters" over at the korg forums or the unofficial electribe forums. Thank you for correcting me. Anyway the electribe gets my vote regardless of whether you choose the EA or EM, although I prefer the previous.

Youd have more fun chucking a few hundred quid down the gutter in the rain than a mc303
