The Electribe-R mkII is a new generation of rhythm machine that is enhanced by knob-based editing of analog drums and sound effects. After you create your sounds, you can use the Electribe-R mkII’s internal step-sequencer to create original rhythms. Sound editing is simple; just turn the knobs to adjust the various elements of the sound. You can use the onboard sounds in conjunction with the external audio input to create unconventional rhythms .

Cross Mod

A new cross modulation function (replacing the previous Ring Mod) can be applied to percussion synthesizers 1 and 2 to take your DSP drum sounds into bold new timbral areas.

External audio

You can also run two external sounds into the ER-1mkII. They can each be rhythmically gated in tempo with your music using the same simple step key interface. By using the knobs to modify the level, duration and panning of these external sounds, you can create truly experimental rhythms.

Step record

The Electribe-R mkII’s step sequencer lets you use the 16 pad keys to make rhythms from the sounds you create. You can hear the results as well as see them while you step-record.

Add motion to your mix

Knob movements you make to edit the sound (such as changing the volume of parts, or opening/closing the filter) can be recorded directly into the sequencer. You can use these to add timbral change to your phrases, panning and other motion-inducing fun. These Motion Sequences are saved in each pattern along with your sounds and phrases.

New sounds and patterns

The mkII also features an expanded list of new preset patterns that cover a broad selection of dance music from techno, house, trance, two-step, electro, R&B, hip-hop, drum'n'bass, big beat, IDM, trip-hop, and lounge.

Take control

You can control the Electribe-R mkII from an external MIDI sequencer, keyboard, sampler, or other device to integrate it into your current production and performance setup.
