Absolutely brilliant

I have been making electronic music for years on computers and always found it tough to be inspired and come up with ideas. This has been a real game changer for me.

It takes a little bit of figuring out but once you learn a workflow for this device it is unbelievably useful. You can load a sample/synth patch on a pad in seconds, tweak almost everything you could want to the sound, add effects and record a performance moments later.

The only draw backs I can see are;
The device can only play a limited number of individual sound sources at one, and once you hit this limit it will cut off something to play the next source.
The sound quality, while decent, is not superb.
The labeling for all the knobs is nigh-on impossible to see in low light.
Creating new samples and loading them onto an SD card can be time consuming and tedious.

It's ruggedly built, aluminium housing I think, and comes with a power supply though it can run for quite a while on batteries, especially in low-power mode.

All in all it is a big thumbs up from me, I would definitely recommend it. The only problem I had when deciding to buy this was whether I would get this or the original (non sampler) version.


Great in its price range

Limitations breed creativity they say, and I feel this applies to the Electribe sampler. It's fun to use and makes it really easy to come up with ideas, but it'll also remind you of its limitations quite often.

The effects are kinda shabby and the polyphony is kinda ridiculous. Since it's not properly explained in the description: one note of mono sample uses one polyphony, a stereo sample uses 2 parts and so 2 polyphony. Having filter or insert FX enabled eats 1 polyphony each, per part. So for example playing a single note using a stereo sample with both filter and FX enabled, gobbles up 6 notes of polyphony! This way you'd only get 4 notes and you're already out of polyphony.

The upshot is, since it's a sampler, it'll sound just as good as the sounds you feed it are. Also the way you can mute parts, jump to arbitrary steps on the sequencer and being able to chain patterns makes it really fun to arrange entire songs out of loops. After you get used to the rules of this machine, it's really nice.

Also, huge plus for the blinkenlights! <3

Buena, pero algo complicada

Empezar a hacer música con ella es algo complicado ( almenos comparandola con la Novation Circuit que tengo) debido a que el manual no es muy explicativo y bastante lioso, pero a la que porfin lo entiendes te acostumbras a su modo de trabajo facilmente. Algo en contra que he visto es la gestion de los archivos con la tarjeta SD, ya que debes tener una tarjeta exclusiva para la electribe porque sino te da errores de exportación y varios problemas.
Es lo que digo, es un muy buen sinte/ secuenciador pero comparado con el otro que tengo, el Circuit, es mucho mas complicado plasmar tus ideas en él, ojo, no estoy diciendo que la electribe sea suuper díficil, pero sí que se podría haber cuidado más este aspecto en comparación con sus rivales.
Edit tras usarla durante un año: la he vendido porque al cambiar de sesion siempre hay un microsegundo de ''pausa'' que se nota. Es un defecto que al parecer tienen todas las E2, tanto la azul como la roja.

très bonne machine pour s'initier à la composition et au live , la modulation et le filtrage laisse des possibilités satisfaisantes ,
petit message aux programmeur :
Améliorer le pattern chain, c'est galère en live.
