Korg Analog Drum Machine

Quick Overview

Even today, more than thirty years after the age dominated by analog synthesizers, Korg 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.
The Volca series are a group of three miniature synths with built in sequencers designed to help you create music away from your computer. Sitting next to the bass and keys units in the line is this beats version, which takes its cue from classic analogue beatboxes, fusing that with the ethos of Korg’s Electribe design to create a miniature analogue drum machine brimming with possibilities. There are two sound engines; an analogue engine for the kick, snare, open hats, closed hats, low tom and high tom sounds as well as a PCM engine for clave, cowbell, ago go and clap sounds, all of which are fully editable. The 16 step sequencer is based on the classic Korg Electribe sequencer and includes features for warping your sequences such as stutter, roll and active step functions. The Volca Beats is battery powered with the option of a 9V AC adapter and in addition it includes a sync I/O for chaining different Volca instruments together, including Korg’s Monotribe. There is also MIDI in for use with your DAW or external clocking device, and the main audio output is through a headphone mini jack port. Those who like to use touchscreen interfaces may be intrigued to hear that it is also possible to sync all of the Volca units wirelessly using the SyncKontrol app for iPhone. With competition in the miniature drum machine market heating up, its unrivaled affordability makes Korg’s Volca Beats well placed to be the leader of the pack.
