I remember the electribes got a lot of flak from of these same jagoffs about 4 years ago. Now its no longer in production and now everyone has changed their tune.
I can remember give or take 8 to 9 years ago catching tons of s**t for owning an ES-1 from all the prissy MPC owners on various forums back in the day...(I wont reveal the forum names). Not to be condescending myself, but it was funny to see when Madlib and Jaydee revealed that they used SP-303's and SP 404's awhile back. All of a sudden alot of these dudes changed their tone in regards to using other equipment that wasnt made by AKAI.
Its all good though, Im glad to see that people have finally come around to realizing that the first generation electribes and the newer electribes are money well spent :mrgreen:

Are those ribbon controllers at the top of it?

Anyway, I think this is a pretty interesting instrument. If it's 400$ or less, it makes sense.

I wish. Impretty sure that's just part of the mp3 player well.
The way a lot of korg stuff is a mish mash frankenstein of their other products I'm surprised there's no x-y pad. An x y pad with a matrix to indicate what parameter you're controling would be a lot of fun.

I suppose that's what midi is for tho...

Thanks I appreciate the praise. That one is pretty old, like 3 years I think. I should probably get back into drawing on a daily basis. It would be nice to pick up animation as a skill

I think it looks pretty cool actually, like a CS-01 or SH-101. Looks like it would be a lot of fun to play with I think, I'll consider picking one up if the price is right...

Which, if we can depend on Korg's past, will drop to $400 or so after a short time.

Now officially announced at Korg:

Seems pretty cool, but probably not something I'll buy.
Official video here:


How are the samples stored, btw?

my bet would be 128 MB of sample memory. it doesn't say anything about storing the samples when the machine is off, but it wouldn't be difficult to use flash RAM for it. Since the memory is partitioned into banks, its likely they solved the limit on stream speed by addressing each bank seperately, possibly even seperate chips. Who knows if the ROM is the same size as the other banks- of so, then the ROM is 16 MB. I was kinda hoping it was gonna be the MicroX/X50 64 MB ROM.

So is multisampling possible either by design or workaround?

Well, in the video they have multiple samples mapped over the keyboard.
