  • Import this backup file to your Korg Electribe 2 (Grey/Blue) to install the Hacktribe Firmware Hack. This will give your regular electribe 2 the sampling capabilities (from the electribe 2 sampler), more IFX, grooves, and scales, and an expanded MIDI implementation. Make sure your electribe 2 is on firmware version 2.02 before installing the backup. If you pefer, you can perform the firmware hack yourself and generate your own backup file using the instructions on the Hacktribe GitHub page.

    Note: If you want to install the Hacktribe Firmware on your Korg Electribe 2 Sampler…Read More

    • Hey Char – I’d like to confirm have you heard of others using this method to update the blue Electribe? Seems to me that if it was successful for you it would be successful for anyone? (provided the exact same steps were taken)

      • I’ve not had any feedback from anyone. Did you try it in the end?

    • I just bought a second hand electribe 2 that has the Hacktribe firmware preinstalled. Do you know if you can perform a factory reset without losing the additional features?

  • I just bought an electribe 2 on eBay to use with my Oxi One. This will be the third time I’ve had one, both were sold previously as I couldn’t stand using the crappy sequencer. But after recently picking up an Oxi One MIDI Sequencer I figured they’d make a great pair. Basically just using the electribe as a sound module with the Oxi controlling everything. Both are battery powered and have TRS Type A MIDI ports so I should just be able to connect them with a single 3.5mm audio cable for MIDI. Should be a fun combo. I’ll let you know how I get on and maybe post some videos!
