The Must-Have Dance Gear, the ELECTRIBE, 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 ELECTRIBE•R now available as one of the world’s first dedicated iPad applications -- iELECTRIBE virtual analog beatbox. 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, just as on a vintage analog synthesizer. Simply touch the step-sequencer's sixteen individual step keys to quickly build a groove. 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!
