Great value and fun. Let down by build quality
on 19 August 2015
There is no doubting the amazing value and fun to be had with this three analogue VCO synth. However, the quality of the build reflects the relatively low price and this is a problem for me. I found that the touch strip sometimes didn't register my presses, which was frustrating, and I could not use this reliably as a pro instrument alongside my elektron and novation gear. I am very glad that I purchased this from Amazon Prime because of their excellent returns policy.
EDIT: In response to the comment below, it was totally unfair to compare the volcas to Elektron, because of the huge price difference. Although I was disappointed by the Volca Bass that I received, I do really like Korg products in general and I would wholeheartedly recommend the Korg Gadget iOS application as one of the very best music making applications available on an iPad or iPhone. It's like having a whole suite of Volcas in your iPad, only better because there are several devices that have not been made into volcano...yet?
