Great for sketching ideas, poor snare sound.

02.05.2016
I've seen other people with this same complaint but it's gotta be said, the snare on this thing is very strange. Now with that out of the way I do like it a lot! The stutter function really is fun to use, the sleek look of the beats appeals and I hope to mount it in a eurorack along with the volca keys I own!
The PCM samples sound nice and you can get some really wonky sounds out of them without too much patience. Motion sequencing is straightforward and sounds good if done right.
Paired with an distortion or overdrive pedal this thing can really blast the kick and tom sounds.
Of course it syncs with the other volcas and makes a pretty light show. I do feel that most of the Korg volca lineup will remain a staple in cheap and relatively high quality little noise machines. They look like toys but they play well and they're fun for jamming with friends since almost anyone can figure them out. Bringing a couple on stage can actually add a very cool sound to your set.

Amazing quality for the money

TheA, 05.02.2014
The Korg Volca Beats is filled with features and great drum sounds - both analogue and digital. Some people say that the snare sound is poor. I'd say it's just different. It is not the typical 808-style snare what we have used to hear in analog machines. Volca Beats is a great addition to the both small and big setups. In this price category there just isn't a machine which would beat the Beats.
