Enormous value for little money

16.12.2015
It's a 3x oscillator, 100% analogue synth, for less than 150 euros. We can stop right there - it's a must have.

Plus it has a really cool sequencer, which is very intuitive and easy to use. Although limited to 16 steps (or one bar). However, you can connect it to your DAW via midi cable, have your sequences running from there, and have as many bars as you want.

Oscillators sound really nice, as well as the filter, which turns into a beast with a lot of resonance. Without running it through any external devices, you can get an overdrive, which is a nice little bonus.

It is marketed as a monophonic bass synth, but it's a lot more. Actually it has a secret. It's not completely monophonic. You can sequence different notes for every OSC if you're using it's sequencer, or set different semitones for every OSC. By these methods you can even get triad chords out of it, which could be useful if you're making dub / techno dub music for example.

Another great thing is that it has an LFO which can go very fast, you can enter the audible range with it. It allows you to get all kinds of weird sounds.

The only complaint would be, that it's build doesn't feel very solid, it's plastic, wobbly, feels cheap. But hey, for this price, it's OK. If you take good care of your equipment, it shouldn't be a problem. And despite all of that, it looks very good.

There's also a little speaker integrated, and it can run with batteries. But I personally, find these features useless.

Overall, excellent product. Definitely a must have if your budget is limited, but you want a proper analogue synth. And Korg Volca Bass is exactly that.

Handy toolset for home studio (about all Korg Volca series)

20.05.2014
Volca Bass produces rich series of analog bass sound that I can classify as from "classics of acid" to "smooth dubstep" range.

Front panel of Volca Bass have very easy to use, intuitive interface. Almost all controls available instantly but only some of them via FUNC + button.

Any product of Volca series uses 16-step build in sequencer with 8 additional memory slots so you can store your latest work just in few seconds. By the way, you can always restore factory default by pressing special combination of keys when powering on your Volca device.

Volca Bass equipped with MIDI IN, SYNC in/out, headphones out. No additional audio inputs/outputs available for "in set" connectivity, so features is only at "okay" grade.

It can be powered by AC adapter (KA-350, costs about ~30euros) or with six AA alkaline batteries.
