From Our Research Team:
The Backbone of Live Electronic MusicThe Korg Electribe series is back with the hot new Electribe EMX1SD. This updated version has all of the same awesome features that made the Electribe MX such a big hit, including incredible ease of use, powerful MMT (Multiple Modeling Technology), and crazy sound-shaping tools, plus some new goodies of its own. The Electribe EMX1SD now gives you the flexibility of storing and recalling song data from up to 32GB SDHC cards. That's a ton of space for storing sounds and patterns! The Electribe EMX1SD also comes loaded with material from some of the world's hottest underground electronic musicians, including Emika, the Anti-pop Consortium, Shrikednb (Tom Thorpe), Denkitribe, mryat, and Scribej.
At the heart of the Electribe EMX1SD is one of the easiest-to-use sequencers on earth. Don't confuse "easy to use" with "limited" though, as the Electribe EMX1SD has some serious tricks up its sleeve. Real-time recording makes it a snap to capture phrases on the fly, whereas step sequencing gives you the power to individually program each note's timing, pitch, and duration - all with simple controls. Combining real-time recording and step sequencing is a powerful and quick way to lay down ideas and tweak them to perfection. In fact, the Electribe EMX1SD allows you to record and edit more than just note data, via its expressive motion-sequencing functions.
Motion sequencing records layers of knob tweaks in real time, allowing you to build intensely complex sequences, one simple layer at a time. The same way that you can edit note data, you can edit motion sequences one step at a time. With up to 24 motion sequences per pattern, you have more than enough available layers to touch every major parameter. Just check out the Electribe EMX1SD's 192 pre-programmed patterns to find out how intense this sequencer can get! You can easily create complete songs inside the Electribe EMX1SD, or sync it to other gear. Both onboard MIDI I/O and automatic BPM detection allow the Electribe EMX1SD to play well with other synths or drum machines.
If you're not already familiar with it, the Electribe EMX1SD's Multiple Modeling Technology (MMT) is absolutely amazing! In all, you get 16 different sound engines. In addition to traditional analog synthesizer waveforms, the Electribe EMX1SD gives you advanced modeling voices, such as Waveshape, which uses multiple oscillators to create complex sounds. Another 76 PCM synth waveforms and 207 PCM drum samples give the Electribe EMX1SD plenty of extra tone options. Add to all of that a highly evolved effects engine, and you get one tone-making monster synth!
The Electribe EMX1SD comes packed with killer effects. Dual 12AX7 vacuum tubes are the driving force behind Korg's Valve Force technology, which adds fat and warm overtones to your sounds. The Electribe EMX1SD's three stereo effects processors give you access to some crazy sound-warping effects, in addition to a list of more conventional effects. Check these out! There's the Talking Modulator, which adds wild formant shifting to give you sounds that fall anywhere between a Frampton-esque vibe and an alien's chattering. You can dial in the Grain Shifter and create glittery overtones or pure digital chaos. And since you can configure the Electribe EMX1SD's effects engines either independently or in series, there's no limit to the amazing sounds you can create!

Powerful Machine For Producers
by Matías Elé fromI bought this machine after seeing other options that integrate a sequencer by steps and definitely this had no comparison because the EMX integrates 5 parts with different types of synthesis and an e... read more [+]ntire section for drum sounds. This make it very flexible and poweful. I am pleased with the samples included because it has some of the classical battery sounds, like Linn and all these vintage stuff, for example. This is an machine perfect for producers looking for creative options for creation. close [-]

This item has almost everything I'd like in a Workstation.
The only thing that would make this unit the absolute beast would be the ability to upload your own audio files into it-- but I guess that's why they offer two separate units for this (ESX-1)-- so they didn't have to compromise the functionality of either unit.
Motion Sequencing on this is an absolute dream for phrase expression, and the selection of filters lets you pull exactly the frequencies you want out of a sound.
Overall, completely solid. What I was looking for.
Just upset that I had to sell the KPPro to buy this.. within an hour, I could see where a KPP or a KP3 would REALLY complement this unit.
In regards to Sweetwater;
Justin (my rep) was the man. Unit shipped and was on my doorstep within 30 hours. They even gave me candy. close [-]
Metal chassis, tube saturation, 707, 808, 909, Linn, DDD-1, what more could an electronic producer ask for? Well, FX, synths, multiple outputs, motion sequencing, arpeggiator, hard sounds, soft sounds, and the ability to completely sculpt what you want out of your track, what else could you ask for? A excellent studio tool, a live performance tool, a DJ compliment, step sequencing, realtime recording, the ability to add your own tubes. I use vintage and modern drum machines and I have to say the Korg Electribe EMX1SD is ALWAYS a pleasure to produce with and to perform live with. (Also, for an even MORE open sound with greater headroom on your tube saturation, you can also add a pair of Groove Tube 12AX7's.)
