The Electribe MX features KORG's new cutting-edge MMT (Multi Modeling Technology) engine. The Synth Oscillator provides sixteen different oscillator algorithms including not only powerful analog synthesis models, but sophisticated additive, PCM, combination and formant models as well. Other functions include 'Chord Oscillator' which lets you produce the sound of chords with just a single note, 'Unison Oscillator' which detunes the pitch of as many as six oscillators to generate incredibly fat sounds, and 'Wave Shape' which mixes two oscillators and then applies modulation to create complex waveforms. 207 drum PCM sounds and 76 synth PCM sounds are built-in and ready for immediate use, and range from powerful kick and snare beats through amazingly unique organic sounds.

The multi-mode resonant filter offers Low Pass, High Pass, Band Pass and a new BPF+ (Band Pass Filter Plus) mode with a 'Drive' parameter that produces the distinctive overdrive of analog circuitry, creating powerful analog synth sounds. All of the parts also feature a combinations of LFO and EG modulation allow you to create wonderfully bizarre sounds.

Twin vacuum tubes VALVE FORCE deliver powerful sound
The VALVE FORCE circuitry in the Electribe MX contains two vacuum tubes that can be used as a mastering effect to add new power to your sound. The tube gain knob adjusts the level at which the output signal is passed through the vacuum tubes, letting you create dynamic sounds with the distinctive tonal quality that only tubes deliver. This is not simple 'distortion', but rather a natural effect that enhances the tonal changes in your music.

Comments About the Sounds:
One of the main things that it has going for are the two Valves on the out put stage which can be overdriven to varying degrees for a warmer, fatter, sound.
