Stuck for Christmas present ideas? Fear not. We had a chat with Sam Willis, a.k.a Primitive World – R&S Records’ head of A&R and Point Blank instructor – about some fantastic bits of somewhat overlooked music production hardware that’s passed ‘Under The Radar’ in our new four-part series. These classic bits of kit can often be found for a steal online and could make a big impact on your tracks when utilised well.
In the first instalment of the series Sam shows us the Korg Electribe ES-1, a small but powerful sampler. Described jokingly by Sam as ‘the poor mans Octotrack’, in reality this sampler is not to be underestimated and can be used for production or as a live tool to great effect. Check out the video above and subscribe to our YouTube channel to stay tuned for upcoming episodes in the series.
Sam Willis has recently participated in Fact Magazine’s ‘Against The Clock’ and is an instructor at Point Blank.
