Share Electribe ESX/EMX instruments, samples, patterns, tricks and tools

Electribrary is an online database of free instruments files, esx files, livesets and more. Nowadays we live in a software-dominated world, which makes hardware samplers *FUN* again. With today's webtechnology, we are joining past and present resources to aid our musicmaking pleasure. Simply use the webplayers and let the samples flow into your Electribe ESX or hardware sampler using your smartphone or laptop. All this love is done by- and for the hardware enthousiasts community

Free Korg Electribe ESX-file based on the Multimoog, the big brother to the Micromoog. It's a classic monophonic synth that features 2 oscillators, a ribbon controller, variable waveforms, flexible sample and hold, LFO, aftertouch (for pitch, VCF, or LFO rate) and a great sounding 24dB Moog filter. Like the Micromoog, the Multimoog was designed to be a cheaper alternative to the Minimoog. It is used by Underworld.

Esx liveset leon du star
My buddy Roland invited me to his place (he lives at number 303, no joke!), and before I knew it I was trying out some mad funky stuff with Roland and his squirrel :D

Seamless (background)loops tutorial on esx
2014-07-31 (my blog) (electribe resources) (my songs made with electribe)
The slicing-algorithm of the electribe esx contains a nifty automatic crossfade-loop-feature which can be really handy. Here's a demonstration of a technique which can create interesting effects without using extra samplememory. Hope you like it. (WARNING: european english is used :)

HINT #1: optionally you can resample the seamless loop, and put  it on a drumpart. Whenever you experience a 'click'-sound re-apply the envelope 'fadein' trick as shown at 03:38

HINT #2: The sample above was extracted from a soundfont, so it was already loopable (hence the 'all'-slice was looping). So, this means you can prepare a looping sample on your laptop: in your waveeditor apply a fadeout on the end of your sample. Then apply a fadein on the beginning of your sample. Cut that first-part, and mix (not paste) it with the end of your sample. Voila its a seamless looping sample. Hope it makes sense :) If not let me know and I'll demonstrate it in a video.

Respect to my electribe brothers Nick Salerno, Sauce, Andygaro, Electromachines, Dmitry Yashin,Samuel Faivre, Georg Grabner, Hannu Salomaki, Paulo Marques, Franz Keller, Walter Haisenberkk, Acid Baka, Matt LbFu, Katsuyoshi Shishido, Mickey Boggia, Steve Lockett, Mortimer Killerhundwelpen, Walter Haisenberkk, Marcus Kautz, and all the people who I forgot.

Happy electribing! :D

Roland mc303
The Roland MC-303 is the first of a series of musical instruments known as a Groovebox. It combines a simple sound module with a sequencer to record and store notation, along with controls aimed at encouraging the musician to improvise the music while it is playing.

Emu sp12
The E-mu SP-12 is the classic drum machine & sampler combo that paved the way for such greats as the E-mu SP-1200 and AKAI MPC series of sampling drum machines. Redesigned from E-mu's original Drumulator drum machine, the SP-12 is a classic drum machine with built in sampling capability. There is a set of preset drum sounds including kick, snare, hihats, toms, cymbals, handclap and rimshot.

Commodore 64 sidplay
SID stands for Sound interface Device which is an IC produced by MOS technologies in the 80's through to the mid 90's.  In short is is a stand alone sound synthesizer chip,  most likely the finest one ever created.  It was used in the legendary Commodore 64 computer as well as some other variants.

Esx stretch-synthesize tutorial
Youtube tutorial which explains: showing you how to stretch samples in realtime. This allows for making totally new sounds only by fooling around purely in sample-mode. Great to make single soundscapes, to merge into one sample at a later stage. For more tutorials/tools

Slava fangel remixpack
You can download the current state of my Korg Electribe ESX in it's entirety.
It includes all current samples and patterns including all of the new Comma Sutra EP, all tracks other than 'Hold On' from Raw Solutions and "I've Got Feelings Too" and Whirlpool from Soft Control.
I'm curious to see other Electribe users remixing or simply performing these tracks. This site will also soon include a space for others to upload and share their remixes.

Electribome (es|m|x to monome)
Just another fun little monome emulator type thing. I was getting curious about how much better a monome 128 would be. Using the MIDI keyboard on the Korg Electribe you can get 16 columns horizontally, and 9 rows vertically using the drum parts (ESX) or 5 rows from the keyboard parts (EMX).

Instructions (Korg ESX)

Select Keyboard Part 1 and make sure the octave setting is on the lowest setting:
Select the MIDI device that the Electribe is connected to.
Set the row by choosing a drum part. Remember that afterwards you will have to reselect Keyboard Part 1.
Instructions (Korg EMX)

Press one of the keyboard parts (1-5) to select a row.
Make sure it’s on the lowest octave setting (see above)
Note: You don’t need anything else running (monomeserial etc). It also makes sense not to have the volume on!
