One of the nicest surprises and unexpected new products was the Korg Volca series of small analog instruments at the past MusikMesse in Frankfurt. The volca series is a new line up consisting of three units: the volca Keys lead Synthesizer, the volca Bass synthesizer, and the volca Beats rhythm machine. These units let you create a diverse array of fat sounds that can only be obtained from an analog synthesizer; and you can generate intuitive phrase performances using the loop sequencer. Multiple units can be used in tandem, or together with your DAW software.
Below is the overview of the Korg Volca Beat, analogue rhythm machine. Presented by its hardware designer and chief engineer, Tatsuya Takahashi, it shows off some of the real-time edits and automation functionality that will transform your dance track.
