Loopmasters hit warp speed with the latest in our Synth Explorer series - the Korg ER1! Delve inside the phattest selection of royalty-free samples, paying tribute to this legendry Drum Machine/Synthesizer which continues to inspire generations of electronic music producers!
The Korg Electribe ER1 was released in 1999, heralded as the ultimate beat machine of the future. It featured four analog-modelling Synthesizers taken from the Korg's Prophecy and Z1 series, as well as PCM Drum sounds, Audio Inputs, Delay FX, Recordable Automation and a killer sixty four step sequencer! With modulation options for each Synth part, internal Ring Modulation and a special Bass Boost function - the Korg ER1 sounds like nothing else!
Loopmasters have captured the tonal flexibility of the Korg ER1 in all its glory, with supersonic Basses, choppy electro-Percussion, shimmering Drum hits, metallic FX and epic Leads! 400 Loops come recorded without effects, bringing you a full spectrum of sound - with Tops, Full Drums, Synths, Bass, Kicks, Snares, Percussion, FX and more. You’ll also find bonus `Pog Top’ Loops and over 100 Modulated Loops using a secret recording technique that has been handed down since the late 1990s.
Loops aside, you’ll find a space-age selection of FX with Drones, Movements and FX one hits to create atmosphere and aid smooth transitions. Amongst the 376 one-hit samples, you’ll also find Basses, Synths and Drums – which include Kicks, Tuned Kicks, Snares, Hats and Percussion. 79 Sampler patches and 403 Rex2 loops deliver even more creative firepower!
