Rack studio samplers may be pretty much a relic of the past, at least in terms of manufacturers producing new examples, but it's not quite all software and computer RAM yet — not if instruments such as this new one from Korg are anything to go by. Even before software sounded the death knell for the serious hardware sampler, desktop devices aimed at providing complementary sampling to synth and rhythm-producing grooveboxes have been available, even going back to Yamaha's SU10 and Zoom's vintage SampleTrak ST Korg's Electribe range has included sampling devices from the start, going hand in hand with their rhythmic or synthy cousins. The Electribe SX comes wrapped in a solid metal package, finished in a head-turning metallic red that complements the blue of the EMX1. In fact, though SOS isn't the type of mag to suggest that a product's colour might be a reason for making it a part of your studio or stage rig, I challenge anyone not to be impressed by the finish of the ESX's front panel. Pictures do not do it justice.
