Electribe 2 Questions

Postby Dave Wiz on Tue May 12, 2015 9:04 am

Hi guys.
I've recently bought an Electribe 2 and I'm just getting the hang of it.
First question.
I can get it to sync with Tracktion, FL Studio no problem but with Live9 I can't get the midi latency close.
If I mute all parts except the one I'm playing out and run it into Live9 it records the midi notes but with a slight delay. I have to quantize to get it in time after. Any advice on how to get midi and audio latency somewhere near?

Second question is...
I've made a pattern and saved it. Then I altered it a bit and wrote it to the next template slot and ended up with 4 patterns I can switch between to make a song.
Ok all is good so far but when I play a pattern through and change the Filter or Resonance so its bubbling along nicely and then select the next pattern in the song I find the Filter and resonance jump back to the setting that was saved with the pattern.
Am I doing something wrong here?
It makes sense that the filters would carry across onto the next pattern so you can carry on twiddling or am I mistaken?
While I'm here, It seems to be a bit of a backward step to have to remove the Memory card, put it in a card reader and copy the files in Win Explorer when it has a mini usb connection.
It would make sense for you to be able to access the card from the pc as a drive.
Thanks in advance


I'm on Win7SP1, Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU G3440 @ 3.30GHz Dual core, 3490 MBytes Ram, M-audio Delta 404 soundcard and asio drivers.

Nope! Pattern change; settings revert to what was saved. Kind of a pain, but that's the nature of the beast.

Can't help with the Live question - sorry!

Hey Dave.

Concerning your first question, same problem here. How much latency do you have? With me it's about 30ms. Compensating it in the preference sync-tab does not fix the first note, only the subsequent notes. So the first note is not compensated while everything else is perfectly in time. Odd. Any solutions yet?

I would have some basic questions regarding the sequencer and copy functions of the Electribe. I cannot find well defined answers in the user manual so i decided to turn to the forum community.

-How can i program chords into the sequencer step-by-step? When i try to do this i always get the basic sound of the given oscillator, the same one which would come if i would be in trigger mode and hit the pad. I know it is possible in record mode by playing the sequence “on the fly” on but i do not want to do it this way or at least not always.

-The problem mentioned above is extremely annoying when i would like to “shift” or copy sounds to a different step, to re-compose the rhythm. E.g. to move a sound in a part from the first pad to the third and so on. In cases like that when i remove the sound from the first pad and then pressing the third pad to insert it there, i always get back the basic sound and my worth to make the desired sound was for nothing since i cannot use it anywhere else afterwards. Am i doing something wrong or is this basic functionality really missing from the Electribe? That would be strange for me.

Thank You in advance,
