Overview

Korg's Volca Sample gives you hands-on control over 100 built-in samples and well beyond thanks to the AudioPocket iOS app, which lets you create and load in your own sounds and noises. Dig into your sounds with pitch and reverse effects, funk it up with the swing control, or shorten up a kick sample with the decay control to give it more impact. This highly tweakable miniature sequencer can also be easily synced with other Volca and Electribe series gear to build a powerful rig without surrendering a massive amount of your studio or live setup's real estate.

There are a few other compromises Korg made to get this performance tool to us for this price. This and the FM are the best Volcas IMO.

  • You get what you pay for

    Yes, it's affordable, but in my brief (but still too long) experience using it, the Volca Sample fell far short of all the glowing reviews. I'm not sure what other folks are seeing and hearing, but I couldn't get rid of it soon enough. Where to start? First, the sound quality: tinny, cheap, even af…

    Very cool little machine. Sure, it has its limits... but it's great for on-the-go. I use mine primarily for loading up old-school 80s-inspired drum samples.

    This actually the second one i've owned. For some reason i sold the first one because of the goofy midi config. Now, I really enjoy just making music on it. the workflow is fun and the amount of control over each sound is really impressive.
