I'm feeling positive, but it is a shame that this campaign is not allowed on the Facebook page as it has 3000 subscribers. The admin did suggest to me that there was 'a secret' when he listed his reasons for deleting the post. I wonder if he has an actual connection with korg?

I've tweeted korguk anyway and for some reason they follow me on Twitter.

If the group admin is indeed in the kahoots with Korg that would be a reasonable explanation of his weird censorship. That could also explain the level of backlash any negative comment about the Electribe or Korg gets at this group.

Many companies reach out to „influencers” on social media, give them exclusive information, product previews etc.

So maybe it happened and this guy, together with his Group minions, feels obligated to defend Korg with all means necessary.

The funny thing is that the petition was not an attack at Korg at all. Read the petition comments – the majority of people say: we like it and we want more!

So maybe there's a hardware announcement coming soon that somehow is an answer to the petition? It wouldn't surprise me. Its 2 years after the E2 was released. Novation released Circuit, people seem to dig it. Pioneer is entering the hardware groovebox sampler game. People still beg AKAI to release a standalone MPC. Etc.

So maybe it is indeed time for a new Electribe? Or too soon?

The FB group users seem to be content with the Electribe 2 just the way it is. But they get veeeery angry at all people who think otherwise.

So there is simply no need to involve them in the petition.


I'm a member on the FB group and see the merits of the petition. It's worth a shot to get some additional features in. The bug fixes would be nice. I also think it's already a great piece of gear and if it doesn't result in changes then it's not a show stopper for me. The group generated petition is a great way to get the word to KORG on what customers want rather than the random forum outrage boycott route.

How about posting the petition on kvraudio site? Perhaps in the hardware section.


Can you do that?

384 supporters, but now how does it work? Do we have to reach a supporters threshold for the petition to be sent or is there just an expiring date after which it will be sent to the recipients whatever the number? In this case, when?

I've hit up a few other electribe users who've produced lots of electribe content here: https://twitter.com/iamimmon/status/754993226063421440

I gave up on posting anything positive about the petition. We're at 388. Almost there!

Oh boy... Mista was Korg's (un)official spokesman/evangelist for the nextgen Electribes. He was invited to a few trade shows to present the unit to the press, he did a preview on Sonicstate etc.
Which is totally understandable – the guy is insanely talented and pushed Electribes to limits beyond imagination. If anyone is Mr Electribe he most certainly is Smile

Its a pity hovewer, that this gentleman is calling people idiots on social networks, left and right. Bottomline of his message is this: if you can't use the Electribe just the way it is you're dumb, lazy and GFY.
There was a very favorable E2 review on Musicradar. Yet he had some issues with it and trashed the reviewer unmercifully on his FB profile.
Yet, he released some fantastic music on YT, made entirely on the E2S.

So be careful...

Can you do that?

Are you asking me to do it? Or asking if it can be done? Well I was thinking more about posting a link to the original petition with explanation for its existence.

Yes I can do it, no problem. Will do it tonight when get home,


yes, I was asking you to do it:) Thanks for that!

Seems the media boost is working, a lot of people have signed today and there is relatively more buzz in social media also:) Mistabishi is doing us nothing but favour with his rants.
