Gearank Recommendation

The Electribe 2 appeared on our now defunct recommended list for Drum Machines in September 2016.

Overview

The Korg Electribe is a sampler and sequencer that lets you craft classic to modern electronica grooves, with 409 analog modeled drums, percussion, bass, synths and other instrument sounds.

Combine all these sounds with its 36 built-in effects and you get a very versatile drum machine unit that goes beyond the usual.

More than merely crafting drum parts, you can actually build tracks if not entire songs with all the instruments available.

Still, Electribe is well known for its drum sounds, and to be specific - modern drum sounds that work great for electronic dance music.

If you're looking for a fun and easy to use drum machine that crosses over to modern music production, then it's worth taking a closer look at the Korg Electribe v2.
