Electribe ER-1 is an iconic groove box that, despite numerous descendants refuses to go away. No serious anthology of ‘best rhythm machines ever’ would dare to get away with ignoring Electribes. Ultimate tweakability married with unique sounds. Born in the nineties it is still being used and sworn by many musicians almost two decades later in spite of serious flaws that have been plaguing it. This is an attempt to put things straight and remedy at least some of the historical injustice suffered by this fantastic box.
