Granular Synthesis with Korg Electribe ESX

I’ve discovered a really simple way of getting a granular synthesis type effect going on the KORG Electribe ESX synthesiser. Load up a sample of reasonable length (5 or 10 seconds or so) into on of the one-shot samples. Turn on the Roll button and while holding down that part’s button, slowly vary the start point dial. This continuously triggers short snippets of the sample from different points.
