18 Ways To Get More From A Korg Electribe 2 Sampler

The latest Loopop video takes a look at 18 ways to get more from a Korg Electribe 2 Sampler.

Here’s what he has to say about it:

The E2S has held up very nicely over the past couple of years. It has more sample memory than a few new devices that recently came out, supports stereo samples, and 16 different tracks, each of which can sequence internal voices or external MIDI.

These include “hacks” or tricks to effectively double the available memory (and more) by editing sample rates of samples, creating samples that are layers of oscillators, transposing the pitch of loops without changing the tempo and vice versa, and many many more.
