Actually, having had my doubts about it, then hailing it as something awesome, I’ve now put it up for sale.
I still think it’s a great piece of gear, but it’s approach to doing a lot of things and aiming for a complete solution makes me more sensitive to the way it sounds. And it sounds great, but I prefer grittier and messier, and it’s quite clean.
Given the in comparison limited options for sound design, you basically need to like its foundations or there’s not much you can do about it.
So for me, it comes down to preference of sound, but not in quality but in tonality. I could very well see myself return to the Electribe2 in the future, but for now, I’m in the dirt, and the E2 is not filthy enough.
