Product Description

Product Description

Korg Analogue Volca Bass Machine has powerful analog bass sound creation and an electribe-inspired sequencer for the ultimate bass lines powerful analog bass sound. 3 analogue oscillators for thick, huge bass line. Newly designed analog filter for crisp, bright response. Simple structure with single VCF, VCA, LFO, and EG Loop sequencer distilled from the Electribe series. Electribe-style 16-step sequencer with eight memory patches. Slide function that's indispensable for acid and other types of electronic music. Active Step function generates new bass lines by removing or inserting steps. Convenient functions for ease of use - self-tuning function for constant, stable pitch - the weak point of an analog synth. Sync In and Out allows clock sync of multiple instruments from the Volca series as well as Korg's Monotribe. Go-anywhere analogue: play anywhere with the built-in speaker and optional battery power.

Aggressive sounds that stand up to the drums, fat sounds that support the rhythm and funky sounds that generate a groove - the Korg Volca Bass is an analog groove box that has what you need for a wide range of bass lines. Although simple in structure, the analog sound engine has an unmistakable presence with subtle nuances that cannot be reproduced by a digital simulation. It's a ideal choice for acid house and many other styles of music. The step sequencer distilled from the Electribe is not only visually intuitive. It's also a powerful way to generate free form bass loops that will stimulate your inspiration. PSU KA-350 not included.

1 Star?! C'mon! The Roland TB-303 has got a classic sound, and has an accent function, yet this beast is actually more flexible, and 303's sell for over a grand on e-bay. Yoy've got to understand what you're getting here, and that's a 3 oscillator, fully analogue monosynth. It has detuneable oscillators, so you can get those fat detuned sounds (can't do that on a TB-303 - they only have have 1 oscillator!), and you can even record seperate melodies for each oscillator on the sequencer. Who else is doing analogue synths with these features for this price? NOBODY. The Arturia Microbrute is an excellent piece of kit, yet even though you can mix in different waveforms, it only has one oscillator, so you can't detune them lile this box. Only other synth near the price bracket is Waldorf Rocket, which is only a module - has no sequencer, no keyboard, and it's oscillators are not analogue. It does have an analogue filter. The envelope options on it are pretty poor though. Mark my words, future classic. Not only that, but Korg have really raisef the bar with their recent analogue synths - it started with the monotribe and monotrons, and now we've had an MS-20 remake for £500 (One of the classic analogues of all time, and original sells for well over a grand on e-bay), The Volca series, which are unmatched in the market at the pricepoint, and soon a faithful remake of another classic synth, an Arp. Korg have paved the way for people who don't have thousands of spare pounds to spend on a true analogue synth, to enjoy the sound real analogue brings. Thank god for Korg (and arturia for that matter....)

I've been really enjoying this. Great bassline sounds. The filter is smooth and stepless. The sequencer is practically and usefully designed. The controls are surprisingly performance friendly. The battery life is great. The built in speaker is useful and does an acceptable job for what it is. My main issues are the lack of line-out and the compacted keyboard layout (ie. the volca keys has a far better layout). It would be nice to have midi out but it really isn't much of an issue. 10/10 for fun. 9/10 for functionality and playability. 10/10 for sound quality. If you like making basslines then I don't think you can go wrong with this.

For the bargain price in the Black Friday sale this was worth buying. Even at full price it is surprisingly good value compared to other budget mono synths available. As a TB303 replacement, it has a reasonably flexible sound setup and sequencer. With both sync and MIDI, the unit is ideal for minimalist retro style or even modern EDM performances.

This has to be the fastest delivery yet. Am impressed.
As for the Volca, what a cool bit of kit. So easy to use, fat sounding bass and cool acid bass emulation. Brill for the price.
