Groove has always been at the heart of the Volca range with their rich array of classic synth tones, they have revolutionised portable music production. Adding to this incredible range is the Korg Volca Drum Digital Percussion Synthesizer. Complete with 10 pre-loaded kits, 16 editable kits and a new DSP engine, Volca Drum will be a powerful addition to your rig.
Newly developed DSP
The Korg Volca Drum is capable of generating huge Drum tones primarily thanks to its built-in DSP engine. This works alongside the 6-part x 2-layer drum structure to produce huge resonant percussive tones that can be used for a vast array of EDM, RnB and more. The pitch, modulation and envelope control also means that you can create drum sounds that are as unique as you are.
All parameters are laid out on the top panel so that you can get to creating the best Drum and percussion tones right away without feeling like you have to fight against an interface. Swing, tune, body, accent and more can all be easily tweaked until you get your favourite "heartbeat".
To create dynamic patterns, the Volca Drum features a 16-step sequencer that gives you tons of room for improvisation. Quickly layout patterns, perform Drum and bass phrases and even connect multiple sequence patterns to get up to a huge 256 step song. The motion sequence function lets you add time-varying change to the sound which is a superb way to polish your loops. Once completed, you can save up to 16 of your own sequencer patterns in the Volca Drum for later recall.
Thanks to the MIDI and sync connectivity of the Korg Volca Drum Generator, you can also sync it with other Volca units in the series to create some incredibly complex music just about anywhere. MIDI also means you can use the Volca as part of a DAW set-up to add that classic analogue Drum sound to your digital productions.
Compact, battery or adapter operated and with its built-in speaker, the Korg Volca Drum Digital Percussion Synthesizer means you can create superior Drum and percussion patterns with absolute freedom.
