B-York's Review of Korg Ielectribe For IpadReviewed on 8/31/19 2:12 PM
All this app needs is proper IAA support with AUM and audiobus. The iPhone version works way better in terms of compatibility. The sound on this drum machine is phenomenal ,but while not supported it just languishes as a bit of a toy. This one app can be my main go to for a warm sounding drum machine but it just doesn’t play well with other apps.

An okay app but definitely not worth $20. Very limited sound set & incredibly limited features. Would have been okay if it were free or at most $5. Feel ripped off with this app after buying Akai iMPC Pro for just $14. Overall not worth the investment for all that's offered. I’m updating this as of 3/1/2018: since I already spent $20 on this app I decided to give it another shot. Honestly the only thing I really find wrong with this app now is that it is not compatible with Gadget. If Kong were to “Gadgetize” this app it would be far more useful and more worth the $20 retail price tag. Until that happens though, I’m only giving it one extra star in my rating.

Running on iOS 5.1.1, 1st gen iPad. The delays are gorgeous and very flexible. The reverb, rather lofi, even trashy, but in keeping with the Electribe standard. What fascinated me the most was the range and speed of the pitch modulation... I began to get an idea of what that Frequency Modulation was all about. If I were a professor of electronic music teaching a course on synths, this app would be required study for the class. As a musician, I've been able to get very nice genre samples from it, from chiptune, 8 bit, 80s industrial, hiphop, house, etc. The pattern bouncing is great; saves me the time of editing wavs, too. Background audio feature, also, very nice. Now, two effects or more, and a chromatic synth, closer to the ESX-1 than the ER-1, and it'd be heaven. One minor bug, where a four part track overloaded on input data and dropped volume as recorded for the second half, the capacitation perhaps recorded as a motion sequence command. Carried over in copies, so had to be deleted and the parts recreated, which was most troublesome given the wide range on the pitch modulation. But, minor quibble, easy workaround.

I love Korg. Their products are great. Their synth apps rock. This app is a toy. It needs a serious revamp and better hardware implementation. It is not usable to a discerning musician.

Really powerful app with tons of presets and versatility. Check out the midi designer template made for it

Pros: • Generally easy to work with, after a bit of a learning curve. Learning curve should be mostly nonexistent for owners of hardware Elektribe units. • Fun to tweak • Useful for creation of drum/noise loops. Cons: • Not a universal app. Korg is double-dipping with the iPad and iPhone versions of this software. Yes, the GUI on each device is ideally suited to that device, but there's no reason why they couldn't have done that in a universal app. • $20 is a bit much for what it does in comparison to what other apps can get you for the same outlay of cash. I bought it on 50%-off sale and would advise anyone else to do the same. • Lacks IAA transport controls. This is a problem on ALL Korg apps. • Poor MIDI support. • No easy data exchange/backup. • Fiddly controls. A problem on most Korg apps, especially Gadget.

...only add a picture or change the print color. AND they had the nerve to bring it to the iPhone without making it universal. Way to scam your customers, Korg!
