VST plugin (linux/windows 32/64bit) to control/sequence your Electribe ESX/EMX using a DAW. DISCLAIMER: the EMX-scripts are not finished/available yet, since I dont own one. However, looking at the manual, anyone with a text-editor could modify the ESX scripts to get it working. (please send me those to info at leondustar dot com) demonstration @ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFIJuEtbHH0 REQUIREMENTS ============= * not afraid of midi * a midiconnection (usb-2-midi-cable e.g.) from your computer (midi out) to your electribe esx (midi in) * you need a VSTHOST which supports midivst. 1) download the zip (and unzip it into your vstfolder if you want to use it with your DAW) 2) run an .exe file in windows. In linux run the '-linux'-files from the commandline. Or, start your VSTHOST, and launch the plugin (its called 'reaJS' or 'electribe-vstx-32/64') 3) the plugin pops up with the default program for electribe track 2 (press the 'Load' button to select other electribe parts) 4) make sure the plugin is outputting to your midicable (which is connected to your esx/emx) 5) have fun controlling/sequencing those sliders!
This tutorial shows how to link a hardware sampler to a software sampler. I'm familiar with DAW's, but I've always worked with hybrid hardware/software setups. However, usually swapping information becomes cumbersome in hybrid setups, except in this particular setup. This setup is awesome imho, because it solves that problem by connecting both midi- and audio in/outputs with eachother. That causes the workflow to be very simple and fast. Samplers are easy opensource environments for audio, the power of re-sampling is something which can be easily forgotten in this software-era.
For the people who want to get full control over their electribe esx: I wrote some scripts which I'd like to share with you. Here a small demonstration (warning: european english is used). My iphone didnt have enough diskspace, hence the sudden ending of the demonstration :)
NOW COMPATIBLE WITH APPLE LOGIC PRO DirectEMX is a VST/AU editor for the Korg Electribe MX. You can use it in a VST compatible host like Cubase, Live or FL S...
Wavosaur is a great free editor which is really handy for creating looped .wav-instruments. The Electribe can import these samples and read the looppoints. It works on windows and linux (using wine) without any problems. Also you can process/record/master your audio using VST plugins. Just download a bunch of free plugins @ http://snipurl.com/26m6xw2 and you are ready to go.
