Korg’s ELECTRIBE·R has been coveted by dance musicians for ten years running. Today, this indispensable instrument has been reborn as a dedicated iPad app – the KORG iELECTRIBE virtual analog beatbox!

With the iELECTRIBE, sound creation is easy, fun and intuitive – just as on a vintage analog synthesizer. Simply choose a part (or sound) and touch the 16-step sequencer to quickly build a groove. This easy-to-use interface combines forces with the iPad’s 9.7” multi touch display to offer an intuitive "hardware" feel, sure to inspire and captivate the imagination of any user.

The iELECTRIBE faithfully recreates the historic ELECTRIBE·R’s entire sound engine and sequencer capabilities. In addition, it provides advanced Motion Sequencing, eight supercharged effect types, plus 64 new preset patterns that instantly allow the user to create music in a wide variety of dance and electronic music styles.

Customer Reviews

Limited, but can be fun, for 50%-off


• 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.


• 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.

ielectribe once had sample selection.. What happened?

I know ielectribe had sample part selection before they released the gorillaz version.. What happened why did KORG do this? Does anyone out there still have it on an old device? Over the years KORG has shot me in the heart many times. First it was this, then the broken snare on the volca beats. The shotty build quality of the NanoKey Studio, Buggy and missing features in the electribe sampler. KORG has been evil in their business tactics.. I just don't believe KORG really cares anymore..

Needs better exporting

I wish this app could export loops to Dropbox and Audioshare. Though it does have Ableton Link so I can record in time loops into Ableton Live on my PC.
