Since fall of 2015, I’ve used this UDG case to protect the electribe 2, for dust and also to travel with. It fits on my large backpack and give me total confidence.
I fully recommend this to any of electribe 2 users. Mine is still as new, and it toured a lot. And if the table were you playing is large enough, you can use the case to stand your electribe and give you some angle for playing more confortable. Be sure to check it out!
Seems that update don’t pass unnoticed, CDM blog talks about it, IMHO, more optimistic than other forums. Check the article:
Korg updated the hardware line by painting the electribes of blue (synth) and red (sampler), like it did in the olders models.
And released this software that includes some missing options:
– Pattern chain, somebody can called it Song Mode, a new way to link the patterns together and have Song structures or complex structures split on patterns
– One-level Undo function
– Original value indicator: This seems a korg base feature at their synthesizers, I like it for live tweaking and going back to original value).
From what I know there is no way to rollback to previous firmware and hack to sampler again. If you want the sampler version working for you, please don’t try this 2.02 software and the consequent upgrades.
Also, korg created more patterns also for synth and sampler versions.

UPDATE: Added a windows compatible version
Some of you on my mailing list and youtube users, contacted me about if they can test the hack on their upgraded electribes (1.17 and 1.18, the current official firmwares from korg). At first I said no, assuming that the hack will not work as downgrade, but Greg, contact me and his research went forward and found a way to this on a french forum.
For my followers, I decided to the same as the first firmware files, and give it easy. In the next video, I’ll show how easy is to rollback using my firmware:
I created the same modified firmware file of 1.10 that acts as 1.18, allowing to roll back your electribe if already has 1.17 or 1.18.
In order to get the file, you must share this post with your friends. Notice that KORG don’t recommend this
And after this you probably want to try the HACK
I’ve created a modified version of Korg Electribe 2 firmwares to allow people without much knowledge on technical stuff, or afraid to commit a fatal error, be a able to test a sampler version on their grey electribe 2.
In order to get this files: you will need to join at my closed group of music producers and artists. You can simply fill this form, confirm your address, and you’ll receive the link to the modified firmwares and instructions to install it on your electribe 2:
