Peerless beats generated by solid analog drum sounds and an Electribe-style sequencer.

Following in the tradition of the monotron, monotribe, and MS-20 Mini analog synthesizers, Korg reveals the Volca series. Volca is a new set of EDM production tools. These robust and easy-to-use true-analog devices provide a diverse array of huge sounds that can be achieved only from a real analog synthesizer. Each is also armed with sequencing/recording abilities for intuitively creating performances. Multiple Volcas can be chained together for tandem use via the vintage-style sync in/out, and with favorite DAW software or MIDI keyboard through a MIDI In.

Battery operation and integrated speakers mean that users can easily perform anywhere and anytime. These are the next-generation analog synthesizers, providing users with the ultimate sounds and grooves with ease and depth. Whether used together or independently, the Volca series is poised to inject true analog capability into any performance or studio setup! Even today, more than thirty years after the era dominated by analog synthesizers, Korg just can't let go of the tone and feel of analog rhythm machines. Those thick sounds have the ability to stand up to guitar and acoustic drums, and are still essential for track-creation or live performance. The Volca Beats gives users those analog drums plus the simple-to-use step sequencer of the Electribe; it lets users bring their inspiration to fruition and generate beats with the best high quality sounds.
