Korg iElectribe Gorillaz released
Korg and virtual band Gorillaz has teamed up to bring you a special edition of the ipad app iElectribe
128 Gorillaz sounds, created using the iElectribe synthesizer engine in addition to 64 patterns presets
here is what korg has to say about it:
The world’s most successful virtual band, Gorillaz was formed in 1998 by bass-slaying mastermind Murdoc Niccals, vacant pretty-boy singer 2D, Japanese girl guitarist Noodle and hardman drummer Russel Hobbs. In March 2001, Gorillaz released their debut album Gorillaz to international acclaim and in 2005 Gorillaz cemented their reputation for musical and visual innovation with their Grammy nominated second album Demon Days. 2010 saw the release of the band’s third album Plastic Beach ahead of nominations at the 2011 Brit and Grammy awards. The band’s latest album The Fall was gifted to their fanclub on Christmas Day 2010 and will be released on vinyl for Record Store Day on April 16th, ahead of a CD/digital download release on April 18th.
In 2010, the Korg iElectribe was released simultaneously with the Apple iPad, capturing the number-one position in iPad music apps worldwide. Gorillaz latest album The Fall was produced on an iPad using iElectribe and as a result, KORG and Gorillaz have now joined forces to create the new iElectribe Gorillaz Edition!
2D: I was just trying things out with the iELECTRIBE...pushing the buttons up and down and humming over the top…I sat on my phone at one point and it started interfering...the signal started clicking…so I looped that up and made a rhythm…and then hummed over that…then did some clapping on it..and ..yeah …Uhmm, so…I..did it on an iPad using all the music apps. I might do another one in a bit…
