Sorry to hear you're having trouble. Let's first try to just sync the AS-1's internal sequencer to the Electribe, with Electribe being the master.
Make sure your MIDI cable is working and you're using the dongle supplied by Korg convert from 1/8" jack to 5-pin DIN MIDI.
Connect Electribe MIDI Out to your AS-1 MIDI In.
Follow instructions in your Electribe Manual to make sure you're sending out both clock and transport (start/stop) messaged over the MIDI Out port.
Make sure the AS-1 is set to receive clock by adjusting the following settings:
SCROLL TO PARAMETER 6 "MIDI Clock Mode"
SET VALUE TO "SLAVE"
SCROLL TO PARAMETER 7 "MIDI Clock Cable"
SET VALUE TO "MIDI Port"
PRESS GLOBAL to exit.
Now when you hit play on your Electribe, does the AS-1 sequencer begin to play in sync?
