Destroying sound limitations daily.
The Korg Electribe A mkII is compact yet powerful. This tabletop analog modeling synth is loaded with synthesis possibilities and fresh sounds and patterns. All the basic sculpting tools you need to produce cutting-edge sounds and phrases are here.
The Korg Electribe A mkII includes dynamic Cross Modulation and an audio input for filtering and effecting other sources. A step sequencer makes pattern creation easy. Effects include distortion, delay, and chorus/flanger. The 16 step keys play like a keyboard, a Pattern Set Play function switches patterns on the fly, and you can control the unit from an external sequencer or keyboard.
Panel knobs and keys make it easy to intuitively create synthesizer sounds on the Electribe A. In addition to its own acclaimed analog synth sounds, this synth also contains numerous patterns perfect for today's dance music styles.
Authoritative analog synth sounds
From warm and fat analog synthesizers to aggressive distortion, simply turn the knobs to achieve the sounds you want. You can create sequence phrases consisting of 2 synthesizer parts, and save the sound of each part together with its sequence phrase (maximum 64 steps) as one of 256 patterns. Combinations of patterns together with knob movements and other settings can be saved as one of 16 songs.
Cross Modulation and patterns
The Cross Modulation function on the mkII lets the frequency (pitch) of oscillator one modulate the waveform of oscillator 2, producing complex
overtone structures. Using Cross Modulation and the enhanced filter you can create an even broader range of sounds then ever before, from nasty basses to cutting leads and sound effects.
The mkII also boasts a significantly expanded collection of patterns, covering every type of dance music, from trance styles to techno, house, 2-step, electro, R&B, hip-hop, drum'n'bass, big beat, IDM, trip-hop and lounge.
When you run external audio into it, the Electribe A mkII can function as a powerful filter bank with resonance. You can apply ring, sync, or Cross Modulation to the signal, and even process it with the onboard effects.
Simple step recording
The Korg Electribe A mkII's step sequencer lets you use the 16 pad keys to quickly make music from the sounds you create. Since you can hear the results as well as see them while you step-record, creating a pattern is a fast and intuitive process.
Motion Sequence function
Edit the sound by moving the knobs. Volume changes and opening/closing the filter can be recorded directly on the sequencer. Add timbral change to phrases, or use for panning and other motion-inducing fun. These Motion Sequences are saved in each pattern along with your sounds and phrases.
Pattern Set Play
By tweaking the mkII's knobs and using the Mute/Solo function you can create a wide range of variations in realtime while a single pattern plays. The Pattern Set function lets you assign up to 64 patterns to the step keys, and switch between them fluidly.

The KORG Electribe EA-1mkII is an excellent, stand-alone, tabletop synth with diverse, thick sounds that range from heavy sub bass to metallic lead lines. The two-track sequencer allows bassline programming in the manner of the fabled ROLAND TB-303, yet this lean green machine can do THAT and so much more. I have used this wonder box MIDI-ed to both a ZOOM MRT-3B drum machine and a KORG microKORG and the results have been outstanding; I have also jammed with a fellow 'Triber who has the EMX-1mkII, and the EA-1mkII's features provide a solid synth sound section to that machine's more complex rhythm and sampling functions. This is THE BEST synth one can buy if tweaking analog-style synth grooves is your ticket to musical Nirvana.
Wow what a great little synth/groove box. I was making cool tunes in a matter of minutes. I like it so much that I also ordered an Electribe R MkII also. I would really like to have the whole Electribe family setting in my studio. My main use for this equipement is for Ambient and experimental music. The unit looks nice and sturdy and well laid out. More! I want more!
Knobs are cheap and loose...like teeth, and YES I have the new mkII...not the old one. It was also NORMAL price at my retailer. This isn't a sale, not to be a pr!ck.
this box is fun to play with. Lots o tweakin. the effects are unique and good for folks who are looking for a different sound. programming is relatively easy to learn. this box is also cheaply made though which is the one fallback that hurts a little. if you buy it get the extended warranty.
Okay, I love analog synths, so I had to think about buying a "virtual" analog synth, but I'm glad I did. The sounds are phenomenal, the step sequencer is a great way to lay down a groove quickly, and this thing is packed with way more features than I've learned to use yet. I've had it two days, and I've already written a new song with it (well, started one, anyway...) The only downside is that it's pretty complex--be prepared to spend some time with the manual, unless you've used similar synths before. But, it's well worth the money!
I got the amk-II to add another layer to my music. I'm a guitarist and not into hard techno or dance music. This synth can give your music a unique sound and fullness. I compare my amk-II adapted style of music to radiohead or air, just to name a few. It's a good investment.
