Overview

iElectribe is an step sequencer for the iPad. Based on the Korg Electribe drum machines, it has a whole load of great analogue sounds, which you can develop from presets or create from scratch.

iElectribe is only available for iPad currently. There is not a version for iPhone or any other device.

Use in education

iElectribe could be a useful introduction to composition for students who have been creating songs purely with loops. With the iElectribe they can compose their own drum loops from scratch easily. These can then be imported into sequencers such as GarageBand, Cubase or Sonar as the beginning of an original song.

iElectribe could also be used as a live instrument, but this would require a good amount of practice in its use.
