Peerless beats generated by solid analog drum sounds and an Electribe-style sequencer.

Following in the footsteps of the monotron, monotribe, and MS-20 Mini analog synthesizers, Korg announces the Volca series. volca is a new lineup of EDM production tools. These powerful and fun-to-use true-analog devices deliver a diverse array of fat sounds that can be obtained only from an analog synthesizer. Each is also equipped with sequencing/recording capabilities for intuitively generating performances. Multiple volcas can be used in tandem via the vintage-style sync in/out, and with your favorite DAW software or MIDI keyboard via MIDI In. Battery operation and built-in speakers mean that you can conveniently play anywhere and anytime. These are the next-generation analog synthesizers, bringing you the ultimate sounds and grooves with ease and depth. Whether used together or by themselves, the volca series is poised to inject true analog power into any performance or studio setup!

Even today, more than thirty years after the age dominated by analog synthesizers, we just can't let go of the sound of analog rhythm machines. Those thick sounds have the power to stand up to guitar and acoustic drums, and are still indispensable for track-making or live performance. The volca Beats gives you those analog drums plus the easy-to-use step sequencer of the Electribe; it lets you turn your inspiration into reality and generate beats with the best high quality sounds.

    Comments about Korg Volca Beats Analog Drum Machine:

    Right to the point... it does, very well, exactly what Korg says it does. Any comments you may read about missing features that the writer wishes this box had, are simply not taking the cost into account. This is the best bang for buck - maybe ever. LOL! The build quality and feel are professional. The sounds are authentic. I'm loving it!

      A little weird to get use to which button combinations do what, but fun to play and expressive. Dissapointed w the lack of line out, just a mini plug.

            Comments about Korg Volca Beats Analog Drum Machine:

            Korg's latest push into super-affordable real analog electronic music gear is brilliant. The Volca beats is cheap, easy to use, portable, and has a good analog/vintage drum machine sound.

            The kick drum from that tiny box sounds huge, the 2 toms are great, and the snare is decent (keep in mind that the difficulty of analog snare sounds is what drove the success of sampling drum machines). There are also 4 decent PCM (not analog) sounds.

            The utility functions (save, recall, etc) are basic and easy to learn. The manual is basically a one page diagram.

            I have an Akai MPC for drum sampling and MIDI sequencing and I was actually considering getting into a vintage Roland analog drum machine, but the Volca satisfies that urge (for now) at less than 1/10th the price.

            It would be nice if there was a MIDI out, so that you could use the Volca as a little sequencer for other gear (but at this low price point, you can't blame them for not satisfying every whim of MIDI nerds like me).
