We’ve also included the latest preset patterns and many new functions that are currently featured on the “iELECTRIBE for iPad”, released in 2010. , taking a further evolutionary step in technology. Taking advantage of the ease of use that you expect on iPhone, we have maximized the intuitive nature of the ELECTRIBE to make this new product worthy of its name: the iELECTRIBE mkII.

It won’t take long for you to enjoy the ultimate experience of the Electribe series. This apps intuitive nature and familiar interface make it easy to create beats with an analog feel that’s like nothing else.

Amazing rhythm machine that generates powerful grooves



We’ve perfectly replicated the thick-sounding synth engine of the ELECTRIBE-R and its intuitive step sequencer. Now you can instantly obtain extreme tonal changes and powerful rhythms with just one touch.

Not only can iELECTRIBE for iPhone be easily enjoyed by anyone, but it also allows detailed beat-making that transcends iPhone specs. In addition to playing back the provided audio data, you can also freely synthesize sounds from a single waveform and combine those sounds into your own original beats. This allows for the true experience of music production that connects all musicians.

Three hundred built-in rhythm patterns that only this app can produce

With 64 of the latest preset patterns, 192 from the first-generation ELECTRIBE-R, and 32 template patterns for various genres, this app successfully draws out the full potential of the thick sounding analog beats. There are approximately 300 inimitable rhythm patterns that you’ll hear only from iELECTRIBE for iPhone. Electro, house, techno, drum'n'bass, dubstep, hip hop, techno pop, and IDM are some of the wide range of electronic music genres that are provided.

The screen also provides a separate button for the INIT function that lets you immediately start creating beats completely from scratch. This effectively speeds up the creative process and allows you to create music more quickly.

An ELECTRIBE that you can put in your pocket and take anywhere

Whether you’re on the train or bus while commuting to school or to work, at a coffee shop, or in your bedroom, you can enjoy beat-making anywhere and anytime you like. Your completed beats can be transferred to your DAW software via the audio export function. You can also use the WIST function to play wirelessly with a friend using two devices simultaneously.

Powerful functions that bring infinite possibilities to your grooves

We’ve packed maximum potential into this machine with eight types of powerful master effects featured on the upper-level models of the ELECTRIBE. This includes the ring modulation function of the ELECTRIBE-R and the cross-modulation function of the ELECTRIBE-R mkII. This app allows you to switch back and forth to choose between the two. It also includes the BEAT FLUTTER function that uses a proprietary randomizer to create fresh rhythms and the motion sequence function that remembers your knob movements. In addition, you can use an external USB-MIDI device such as the nanoPAD or nanoKONTROL for performance and control. There’s also support for the latest iOS technologies such as Inter-App Audio, Audiobus, Virtual MIDI, and iCloud.

    "iELECTRIBE is one of the best drum synthesis apps for the iOS. The flexibility and ease of programming your own sounds is amazing! I have created dozens of great drum tracks just using it alone, and the way you can automate effects on the fly is genius! Hours and hours of fun to be had with this one!"

    "My first ever synth was the ELECTRIBE S and the second synth I ever owned was the ELECTRIBE R. I am still attracted to the depth and power of a good drum machine very much and so I am happy that iElectribe for iPhone keeps the simplicity and dynamics of the ELECTRIBE series. Also, I'm very happy to see that iElectribe retains the decay function of the original ELECTRIBE R."
