KORG’s first dedicated iPad musical instrument app!

 

 

For over a decade, Korg’s Electribe•R has been go-to gear for creative musicians from around the world and across multiple electronic and dance music genres. Now, you can take the power of the Electribe•R with you thanks to iElectribe, Korg’s first dedicated app; bringing the fun of analog-synth style beat making to your iPad. Best of all, the iElectribe takes full advantage of iPad’s 9.7 inch multi touch display to deliver a new style of musical instrument.

 

 

The popular Korg iElectribe App for iPad keeps getting better! The Korg iElectribe Version 1.5 is available for download at Apple’s App Store (iTunes Store)

Key features of the Korg iElectribe Version 1.5:

  • WIST (Wireless Sync-Start Technology)
    This innovation allows a wireless signal to simultaneously start two iElectribe v1.5 and/or iMS20 v1.5 apps on two separate iPads! Now you can perform with a friend or expand your iPad ensemble by using two units at once, expanding the ways you can create and enjoy musical performances. Mix and match iMS20 v1.5 and iElectribe V1.5 apps in new dynamic ways.
  • “AudioCopy” data sharing
    AudioCopy allows the sharing audio data between apps. Now you can copy and paste audio data between apps using the AudioCopy function. Audio data exported from either app can be sent to other apps that support “AudioPaste.”
  • External USB-MIDI control; plus Korg nanoPAD2/ nanoKONTORL2 Native Mode
    The MIDI support implemented in the previous version is now much more advanced. Now, the iElectribe v1.5 supports “Korg Native Mode.” Simply connecting a Korg nanoPAD2 or nanoKONTROL2 to your iPad will automatically complete all MIDI controller assignments.
  • SoundCloud online file sharing
    iElectribe version 1.5 now features the same SoundCloud feature that has received rave reviews from iMS-20 users. Exported audio data can be easily uploaded and shared online at the SoundCloud site while using either app.
  • Support for iOS 4.3 (Added in Version 1.2)
  • MIDI Control (Added in Version 1.2)
    iElectribe Version 1.2 adds MIDI control capabilities by using the Apple Core MIDI features found in iOS 4.2, via the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit.
  • Audio Transfer Ability (Added in Version 1.1)
    This feature provides the ability to transfer audio from the iELECTRIBE app into a MAC or PC via iTunes, using CD quality wav files. This feature ultimately allows you to use iELECTRIBE patterns and performances in your DAW or video editing software.

Classic must-have Korg dance gear, now available as a dedicated iPad application
Since its debut in 1999, the aggressive sound, unique functionality, and intuitive beat-building style of the Korg Electribe series has continued to make it a favorite of creative artists around the world. Over the years, the Electribe series has continued to evolve in new directions. The vacuum-tube equipped Electribe•MX and SX went on sale in 2003, followed by the updated MKII versions of the Electribe•A and Electribe•R. The year 2010 marks another chapter for the Electribe family with the iElectribe – one of the world’s first dedicated iPad musical instrument applications.

While fun to use, the iElectribe is no toy; it brings to the iPad the legendary capabilities of the Electribe series. Sound creation is easy and intuitive. Simply touch the step-sequencer’s sixteen individual step keys to quickly start a groove, pick another part and repeat. This simple and understandable interface offers an intuitive “hardware” feel that will captivate the imagination of anyone – those familiar with the Electribe’s power, and those who are experiencing it for the first time!

Faithful recreation of the Electribe•R’s entire sound engine and sequencer
Like its hardware counterpart, the iElectribe offers a four-part percussion synthesizer and a four-part PCM synthesizer. The percussion synthesizer features analog synth-style versatility, including exciting cross modulation! The sample-based PCM parts deliver realistic drum hits, cymbals, and more. Using the Accent function adds emphasis where you need it – vital for creating compelling grooves. All in all, that’s eight programmable parts combined with the easy-to-use 16-step sequencer, so anyone can start creating powerful beats instantly!

64 preset patterns ready for immediate use
The 64 preset patterns include familiar patterns from the Electribe•R as well as new patterns created especially for the iElectribe. The preset patterns cover a wide variety of dance music styles including techno, house, electro, trance, drum ‘n’ bass, dubstep, hip-hop, and R&B. Of course, there is plenty of room to program patterns that are all your own.

Supercharged Master Effect with 8 effect types
The Master Effect has been enhanced from the original Electribe•R, and has been optimized for use in today’s music scene. The eight effect types can spice up your beats in a variety of ways that can become indispensable. Included are a chorus/flanger that fits any type of sound; a tempo-matching BPM delay; plus effects such as a grain shifter and decimator which can dramatically transform the sound.

Advanced Motion Sequencing makes patterns come alive
Simply stated, Motion Sequencing records all of your sound enhancing knob-twisting and tweaking so it can be memorized and replayed as part of a pattern. The knob motion of all parameters, for each and every part, can be recorded – so you can go wild and create diverse and complex patterns like never before.
