MELVILLE, NY, May 17, 2010 — Since its debut last month, Korg's iELECTRIBE virtual analog beatbox iPad® app, available from Apple’s App Store (inside the iTunes store), has been a huge hit with users, resulting in a series of five-star reviews and a firm spot in the top-ten music apps, having even hit #1*.
Responding to user feedback, Korg announces the release of iELECTRIBE Version 1.1.0. This adds the ability to export audio, allowing users to transfer patterns and performances into their Mac®/PC via iTunes at CD quality (.wav file format). This means users can now easily incorporate their grooves into their DAW or Video Editing software. Additional refinements in Version 1.1.0 include improved knob response as well as some sonic enhancements. Regularly priced at $19.99 U.S., a special introductory price of $9.99 is being offered until June 30, 2010.
Korg iELECTRIBE for iPad v1.1.0 is now available at Apple's App Store (inside the iTunes Store). Current iELECTRIBE owners can update to Version 1.1.0 for free.
Since its debut in 1999, the aggressive sound, unique functionality and intuitive beat-building style of Korg’s ELECTRIBE-R rhythm synthesizer became a mainstay for creative artists worldwide. Korg ELECTRIBE products have been popular due in part to their interactive, easy-to-use front panel controls. Today, this instrument has been reborn as iELECTRIBE for iPad. Taking full advantage of the iPad's intuitive 9.7-inch multi-touch display, iELECTRIBE allows users to interact with an incredible sound engine to expand their musical and creative horizons. Just as on the original ELECTRIBE, users simply choose one of the eight parts (or sounds) and touch the 16-step sequencer to quickly build patterns and grooves.
The iELECTRIBE faithfully recreates the historic ELECTRIBE-R’s entire sound engine – including analog synthesis modeling and PCM synthesis, along with virtual Valve Force tube modeling. The sequencer can record instrument parts as well as advanced Motion Sequencing – the recording of knob movements as part of a pattern.
The Master effect processor provides eight enhanced effect types. The iELECTRIBE comes preprogrammed with 64 new preset patterns that allow the user to instantly create music in a wide variety of dance and electronic music styles; the user can also create up to 64 patterns of their own.
