Analogue Kick Generator

Please note: This item is B-Grade. Packaging may be damaged or missing and there may be cosmetic imperfections and slight signs of use.

Kick & Bass You Can FeelThe KORG volca kick is an analogue kick generator that was created for sound design. An analogue circuit based on the powerful resonant sound of the original MS-20 filter allows you to create a wide range of kick sounds only possible using analogue circuitry, from solid kick drums to punchy kick basses and everything in between. The 16-step sequencer, a standout feature of the volca, now features a new Touch FX feature that lets you control an effect instantly, offering even more live performance potential. Behold the incredible power of an analogue kick that cannot be generated from a plug-in or a sample.

Amazing Features • Analogue synthesizer designed for kick drum and bass sounds
• Creative sequencing with Active Step, Accent, Slide, and Bend Reverse options
• Touch FX sequencer for making stutters and breaks on the go
• Use MIDI In and Korg Sync I/O to integrate into your rig

Generated By MS-20 Filter Oscillation

korg volca kick

powerfully presentThe volca kick creates incredibly present kick sounds using a fully analogue circuit. To create these sounds, it uses the sound of an oscillating filter from the original MS-20, different to a typical sine wave. The powerful Rev.1 filter of the MS-20 self-oscillates when resonance is increased to full, which is then is used to produce powerful kick sounds with diverse overtones.

Simple and effective parameters are available, so you can freely design a wide variety of kick sounds as you desire. Begin the sound design process by using MS-20 RESONATOR (PITCH/BEND/TIME) to control the sense of pitch that generates the "body resonance" of the kick sound. Then use PULSE COLOUR/LEVEL to adjust the clip components to control the sense of attack, and AMP ATTACK/DECAY to intuitively control the decay of the sound. From tight kicks to fat, slow-decaying kicks, and pitched kick bass, you can create kick sounds that are appropriate for every style of dance music.

Rule The Beat

Aggressive ControlAlong with the analogue kick generator circuit based on the MS-20 filter, there's an analogue drive that includes several stages of distortion. The distortion level and type can be differed by a single knob, increasing the variety and power of the kick sounds. You can use the tone control to transform the colouring of the sound by adjusting the high-frequency range.

Powerful kick bassThe volca kick isn't just a kick drum machine. You can use the 16-key touch-panel keyboard to perform dynamic kick bass, and take advantage of the volca kick's powerful analogue circuitry to generate the sub bass sound that's indispensable to dance music styles such as grime or trap. As the volca kick covers a wide pitch range from low- to mid-frequencies, your sequences can include a range of sounds including low tom, high tom, and sound effects.

Dramatically Transforms Your Patterns

korg volca kick

automation of all parametersThe volca kick features a 16-step sequencer that offers plenty of room for improvisation. You can use it to rapidly create a kick drum pattern, and it also supports realtime recording, which is a great way to perform kick bass phrases. The pattern chain function lets you connect multiple sequence patterns for successive playback, making it possible to create large-scale developments of 32, 64, or even 256 steps by joining up to 16 sequences.

The volca kick’s motion sequence function records your knob movements, so you can add time-varying change to the sound. This is great way to polish your loops, and also lets you generate largely original live performances. Up to 16 sequence patterns and sounds can be stored in internal memory. Active step is a function that lets you skip a step during sequence playback. It can generate effects similar to a short loop or unexpectedly irregular rhythms, so dynamic performances using the sequencer itself can be used as a performance tool.

Power-Up Your Sequences

Distinctive BassThe volca kick allows you to control each step of the sequence in even more detail. The mildly unusual accent function lets you program accents per step (not per trigger) for groovy and occasionally glitchy sequences depending on how the ACCENT knob, which controls the depth of the added dynamics, has been set.

The slide function creates the effect of a connection between steps, producing a smooth and distinctive kick bass. The bend reverse function can be controlled for each step to play the bend backward, reversing the conventional kick pitch so that the pitch goes from low to high, and ending in a unique sound. The volca kick lets you create unexpected and innovative sounds or sequences that transcend conventional kicks.

Enhanced Performance

Unique CreativityThe new Touch FX function enhances the performance potential of the volca kick even more. You can instantly trigger a sequence effect just by touching a step key, transforming your realtime performance in kaleidoscopic ways.

Sequence effects include the roll function that plays a sound repeatedly, the octave function that raises the pitch by one or two octaves, and the sustain function that immediately maximizes the amp decay. These are great methods of creating punchy and powerful breaks.

High Playability

Synchronized PlaybackThe volca kick features a sync connector that can be easily connected to many of KORG's other synths and groove machines. Connect to other volca units, minilogue, electribe or SQ-1, and experience a session with synchronized sequencer playback. The MIDI IN jack also lets you use the volca kick as a sound module for DAW and MIDI controller.
