Korg Electribe Electribrary

Leon du star - make dub
This track is an experiment of dub sounddesign.
The deep & complex sounds of this track are based on simplicity.
It demonstrates how deep textures can be composed out of 3 seconds of audio (kick,hihat, and a single-cycle squarewave) from the SX upgrade-pack (see link above).
It's an optimistic message to anyone: "“People often associate complexity with deeper meaning, when often after precious time has been lost, it is realized that simplicity is the key to everything.” 
(Gary Hopkins)

All sounds come directly from this hardware sampler.
Just like music was made back in the days.
No laptop, no external fx, no eq, no plugin, the hiss is real!

ps. the auto-focus is...something i will disable in future videos :)

Korg electribe sx using dither as distortion
The native distortion effect lacks highfrequency content imho. 
I accidentally discovered how to add high distortion frequencies: by maximizing the added dithering: normalize a sample played at low volume.
Doing so with the eq-effect will give you still a bit of high- low-band control using the fx knobs.

Leon du star 128 sx oscillators in 1
a multishot (synth-slices-in-one) sample which contains almost 128 oscillators

the list of all included oscillators:

Most basic oscs are saw/sine/square and such, in 2nd, 4th, and 6th octave variations. For each variation there's also a interval variation (with a 1st,2nd,3nd harmonic added).

How to use: check this youtube tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sE-Wq0MqqCQ . load this sample into your SX. Goto sample, timeslice the sample, the only exception to the youtube-tutorial is to select 128/16 slices (hint: use shift+dial) and make sure every step is lit (128 steps) .
