Hey everyone!
Just bought my Esx1 and am loving it! Just goes to show that something that was made in '03 still stands up as one of the best grooveboxes out there.

Anyway - jus to start off, I have a couple of newbie questions;

1. Has anyone got any of those 'styleflip' things for the esx or emx? wondered if their worth it, they seem to look pretty cool. (http://www.styleflip.com/index.php?main ... &face_id=1)

2. Technically wise, can you record live sounds from the audio in jack whilst in playback mode? I'm guessing the answers no, but I thought I'd give it an ask anyway.

CHeers,
Simon

Hi and welcome to the wonderful world of Electribes! :bday:

1. Well, I'm actually designing one as we speak. I don't know if I'm actually gonna pay for one right away, but sometime it would be great to make a completely unique machine. I like that idea.

2. If you mean recording as in sampling, then no. If you mean recording as in just going through the machine, then yes.

I mean - I know how to make a sample on the machine outside of playback - what I'm wanting to do is sing or play while the esx is going and record that audio in, whilst it's playing. Sorry if I'm making a simple task seem long and difficult!

I have added vocals to stuff i have written on the ESX. What i did was use a different piece of gear. Turn on the metronome or play a beat in headphones. I record the vocal in soundforge. Edit it, then load it into the ESX using the SM card. Then when playing it you might have to adjust the pitch a little on the ESX.
