Korg Volca Keys, Bass & Beats

These three little boxes look like fun for not very much money! New Old Skool, anyone? :)

I've had a play on the 'acid' one (I think that's the Volca Bass?) and it was surprisingly good for what essentially looks and feels like a toy.

A mate of mine brought it along to an 'electronica jam session' we had a few months back. Battery powered and we just hooked it up through a regular interface. Had a really good sound and all the tweakability of a fully-fledged TB-303. Well, maybe not [i]all[/i]... but it was a nice little box of tricks and like I said, the sound it produced was great.

I seriously considered getting one for a while, then bought a software 303 emulator instead (AudioRealism Bassline), only because I didn't have regular call for 303 sounds.

But whatever. I'd certainly consider buying these Volca products in future. Most importantly, they're FUN!! :)

Having tried them at Gear4Music's shiny new showroom, my limited advice would be 1) Syncing them all together makes them loads cooler 2) Run the sound through decent speakers or headphones because they sound awful through the built-in speaker.

G4M have got some nice synths out in their new showroom eh. That's where I bought my Bass Station 2 a few weeks back, but it was nice to be able to a/b it against the Arturia Minibrute, Microbrute, Moog Sub Phatty, Little Phatty, etc.

I just discovered the Waldorf[size=5] [b]Streichfett[/b][/size]!

Fans of German will know that means [i]spreadable fat[/i], or as one wag put it, it makes you sound like Margarine Dream.

It's an interesting one, that. The patch at the beginning sounds just like the Korg Delta I borrowed from a friend a decade ago, which he has yet to ask for the return of!
