The original Electribes have been a staple of electronic production for decades. Just like the classics, the modern Electribe comes in synth or sample based flavours.
Both versions share the intuitive, addictive, groovebox style workflow that Electribe is known for. The modern Electribes are powerful musical instruments with the capabilities to produce fully polished tracks.
Each Volca model tackles a different way of generating sound, but they all it keep it simple by staying focused on the essentials.
Whether you want analog drums and bass or samples and FM synthesis, the Volcas pack a huge amount of production punch for their size. No list of the best grooveboxes would be complete without the ubiquitous Akai MPC. If you want a hardware workflow with software flexibility, Maschine could be the groovebox for you. Arturia is well known for both their hardware synths and drum machines and their plugin recreations of classic analogue gear. View Count: 0.

For At Home With The Groovebox, Grand Royal, the Beastie Boys' label, sent out a Groovebox--a little gem of a beatbox--to a wish list of soul-mates comprising veteran Moogsters, young pups of the electronic scene and a few disparate performers deemed open to suggestion.
The results are as varied as its contributors, who were encouraged not to use anything beyond the human voice to accompany the Groovebox's collection of bass, drum and analogue synth sounds. Unsurprisingly, those most "at home" with the beatbox are those in touch with its dance origins, with the likes of Jean Jacques Perrey and Gershon Kingsley, both pre-cursors of Kraftwerk, whipping the montage of sonic gurgling and indigestion into idiosyncratic shape.
Perhaps the most interesting--though not necessarily successful--tracks are by Pavement and Bonnie Prince Billy, aka Will Oldham, the latter of whom cussedly refuses to drop his distinctive warble in the face of artificial intelligence, yet produces an unexpectedly tender interpretation of his song "I Am Drinking Again".
