Korg Electribes get a makeover and OS update

Two tribes' true colours.

Korg has released new OS versions for both editions of its Electribe range.

With new liveries that hark back to previous models in the Electribe family tree, the new system versions look to address some of the issues that had been brought to Korg's attention from the Electribe community.

Both Electribes add a pattern chain function, undo and original value functions. The new Sampler's new hardware takes on the hot red colouring from its predecessor, the ESX-1, while the Music Production Station gets a cool blue finish, a la EMX-1.

Each version can be updated by downloading and installing the relevant files from the Electribe Sampler and Electribe Music Production Station support web pages.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
