The distinctive OK GO sound and design
100 different OK GO sounds are built-in
One hundred guitar, bass, drum, synthesizer, and vocal phrases that were actually used on "Hungry Ghosts," the latest album from OK GO, are built-in as preloaded samples (*). First you'll want to listen to these samples and enjoy the signature sounds of OK GO.
You can also edit the samples intuitively as you would expect on the volca sample. You can create completely new sounds by turning the knobs to adjust parameters such as length, pitch, and level.
Just as OK GO has given us songs, music videos, and performances that have never been seen or heard before, you can use this machine with OK GO sounds to generate and play sounds that nobody has ever heard.
Graphics by the official designer of OK GO
The visual image of OK GO is cool, pop, colorful, and crazy! That unique worldview has now been applied to the volca sample. All of the graphic design was done by Taku Sakaguchi, the Japanese designer who handles the official artwork for OK GO.
Card with actual OK GO signatures is included
Limited to the first 3,000 units produced, a numbered certificate with the actual signatures of all four members of OK GO is included
Sample sequencer lets you freely create sounds and songs
Powerful sound control
A total of 11 parameter knobs let you freely edit the sample sounds. For all of those parameters you can use motion sequences to record knob movements, allowing you create time-varying change in the sound.
In addition, there's an analog isolator that lets you create excitement by boosting or cutting the low or high function range, a reverse effect that plays the audio source backward, and a reverb effect. These provide powerful and quick ways to keep varying the sound in numerous ways.
Intuitive volca sequencer is superb for improvisation
The built-in step sequencer is designed for easy editing, and makes it easy for you to improvise by inserting and removing parts. You can use the 16 step keys for quick step-recording, or record in real time while you perform. Combine completed sequences to create song patterns.
In addition, there's an active step function that lets you instantly insert or remove steps inside a sequence, a step jump function, and a swing function that lets you create grooves that "push" or "drag" the beat. The volca sample lets you improvise dynamic performances.
“This limited OK GO edition of Korg volca sample comes loaded with sounds from the album Hungry Ghosts. These are the sounds we used to make our album, and we encourage you to make your own music with them. The volca sample was designed by Tatsuya Takahashi and his team at Korg in Tokyo, and Taku Sakaguchi designed the graphics for this special edition of the instrument. We hope you find inspiration. Play!” - Damian Kulash / OK GO
"OK GO is a great band that has embraced and shown amazing creativity in a diverse range of outputs that's not limited to music (videos, performances, design, collaboration, ...). Wouldn't it be great if they released not just songs but an instrument? Wouldn't it be great if anyone could use this instrument to create OK GO remixes? And wouldn't they make a really cool looking volca if they redesigned it? These thoughts were the impetus for this project. Now you can enjoy the finished result: the volca sample OK GO edition." - Tatsuya Takahashi / KORG Features Intuitive, ultra-powerful volca sequencer
