Create your own samples or import audio material to create rhythm patterns quickly and easily. A must-have tool for creators of break-beat music!

Time Slice function lets you divide a sampled groove into individual samples, allowing you to alter individual steps and change the tempo without affecting the pitch.

Eleven powerful effects, including an all-new Modulation Delay for extreme sound-creating potential.

Step and Real time sequencing allows you to create patterns quickly and accurately by playing directly on the step or part keys.

Arrange patterns into Pattern Sets for realtime performance, or string them together into full length Songs

Motion Sequence records your real-time filter or effect knob tweaks directly into the pattern or a song.

Resample internally - as you play with the knobs, mute parts, etc. - with no loss in audio quality!

In additional to sampling, the audio inputs allow an external sound source to be processed using the ES-1mkII's knobs and switches. You can also rhythmically gate the audio input as part of a pattern.

Sample, song and pattern data can be saved to convenient SmartMedia. You can also import sample data (WAV or AIFF) via SmartMedia.

The ES-1 MKII packs a full complement of sampler functionality into a compact package. The intuitive knob-based interface delivers the extreme sound-modifying potential and that has set the Electribe series at the front of the pack. Rhythmic programming using the sixteen pad keys is flexible and fast, letting you construct rhythm patterns and break beats quickly and easily. The ES-1mkII lets your creative imagination flow directly into the rhythms that form the core of dance music.

Sophisticated sample editing allows you to create intense rhythm patterns.

The Electribe-S mkII lets you create rhythm patterns by assembling phrases using your favorite samples. The sound of each sample can be radically altered using the knobs to control the pitch and filter, reversing the sample, or adding effects. You're not limited to simply playing back a sampled sound - you can process it as freely as you would on an analog synth. There's also a Time Slice function that detects the attacks within a sample and slices it, letting you handle each sliced sample separately.

For example you can change the pitch and filter settings for just the kick drum, mute individual hits or modify the tempo without changing the pitch of the loop. Of course you can use the knobs to create tonal changes in sliced phrases as well.
