Details

As part of the new Volca series, Korg presents the Volcabeat! This powerful analog and pcm drum machine works alongside other Volca units to produce sounds that only analog synths can, and if there's a drum sound that can't be reproduced by the analog engine, then there's also a PCM sound bank too for effects such as claps, claves, agogo and crash cymbals.

The Volca beats provides six of the sounds for which the greatness of analog shines most clearly: Kick, Snare, Hi Tom, Lo Tom, Closed Hi Hat, and Open Hi Hat. Paying careful attention to the standard sounds that are indispensable for dance music and that are included on numerous synthesizers and sampling CDs, we've designed powerful new sounds that could not be produced by any means other than analog.

The Volca beats provides a carefully selected minimal set of parameters that let you quickly create the drum sound you want. For example, simply by using the three knobs Click, Pitch, and Decay, you can create an incredible variety of kick sounds, ranging from rough sounds that dominate the low range to tight sounds that keep a precise beat. of kick sounds, ranging from rough sounds that dominate the low range to tight sounds that keep a precise beat. Regardless of the settings, all of these sounds will have great presence and density, and will deliver the convincing power that's possible only from an analog sound generator. The built in step sequencer is designed to make editing easy and to let you add or remove parts in an improvisational way. You can use the 16 step keys to intuitively enter notes while visually monitoring the timing of the notes within the measure. You can also play the touch panel keyboard to record in real time. Up to eight sequence patterns you create can be stored in internal memory.

Up to eight sequence patterns you create can be stored in internal memory.

You can use the Stutter function to dramatically expand your live performance possibilities by adding drum rolls or delay-like effects. It can be used to completely transform the feel of the entire pattern, or as a fill when switching patterns. Movements of the Stutter knob can also be recorded in a sequence. The Active Step function lets you skip a step during sequence playback; the Step Jump function instantly plays only the step you're pressing. It can create effects similar to a short loop or unexpectedly irregular rhythms, allowing dynamic performances just as though you were performing the sequence itself.

By using the sync jack you can enjoy synchronized playback with multiple Volcas or with a monotribe. You can also use the "SyncKontrol" iPhone app to wirelessly control tap tempo, swing settings, and synchronized playback with iOS music apps via WIST. The MIDI IN connector lets you synchronize with other devices as well as play the Volca from your MIDI keyboard. You can also send note messages from your DAW and use the Volca as an analog sound module. With its compact size, battery operation, and built-in speaker, it's easy to take the Volca anywhere and perform any time.
