Drum Kits From Junk With A Korg Electribe ES-1 Sampler

Sunday Synth Jam: This video, via once upon a synth, captures a sampling synth jam, featuring an old Korg Electribe ES-1 and a bunch of household junk.

“I sample random objects I found around the house into the Korg ES-1 sampler and attempt to make some lo-fi techno. Objets include a coke can, a book, a banana, a kleenex box, a camera, a lighter, etc. This is a fun way to create your own lo-fi drum kits and end up with unique and interesting sounds that you can layer in with real drum hits to add a bit of flavor.”

Technical Details:

  • Korg ES-1 Sampler
  • Oktava MK-012 Condenser Mic
  • Samson SM10 Line Mixer

  1. Korg ES-1 actually goes for fair prices nowadays compares to ESX-1, but I think you are better off with the new Electribe Sampler 2

  2. Damn, that’s a well made & used sample bank! Pretty inspirational stuff, the old Electribes are incredibly intuitive machines. Wish that kind of workflow was added to more new synths & grooveboxes.
