Building A Chilled R&B Beat on the Korg Electribe EMX2 Music Production Station - Melo Drama March 4, 2015 22:10

This is my first full beat/song/composition on the Korg Electribe EMX2 using all custom synth parts and sounds built from the internal synth engine.
In this video I freestyle the whole arrangement using the part mute function and throw in some on the fly pitch bending and Modulation Delay FX.

Enjoy

Day 1 issues with the Korg Electribe Music Production Station EMX2 March 4, 2015 22:09

So last night I unboxed my EMX2 and had a good old play around with it.
It is definitely a very cool machine to work with however, I did run into a few issues that make the Korg a little annoying to work with. So I've made this video to show you those issues I've found in the hope that they will both inform you about the machine and give you insight into what you may run into. If you've managed to solve any of the issues, please leave a comment and let me know what you did to overcome them.

Cheers!

A demonstration and review of the iKaossilator from Korg running on an iPhone 5C January 2, 2015 02:00

I bring you a relatively short video demonstration and review of the cool Korg iKaossilator app. I am using iKaossilator on the iPhone 5c and it runs well with little to no lag or delay anytime I am using it.
On this particular occasion the upload to sound cloud function didn't seem to be working properly but, I have used it at least twice successfully in the past.
This is a great little app for getting your creative juices flowing anywhere you can use a phone and has the potential to make some really nice stuff. Whilst it is limited to 190 stock sounds which includes an additional EDM PACK OF 40 sounds, you can in fact import your own WAV and a few other format sounds to bring even more possibilities to the app.
You can also export sounds to an ableton project in sets of 4 bars and then join these exports up to build up a full track which is great.
All in all a good and easy to use app that is fun to use and can produce some real nice sounding stuff.
