Drum Or Bass?

bioseq, 21.11.2016
I've been cheating for some time with an analog kick generator, but with the Jomox variant, the spartan user interface has struck me, and at Vermona the rudimentary midi implementation. Here KORG has done everything right: all relevant sound parameters in direct access and also the complete control over Midi. The latter is particularly evident by the chromatic playability of the sound generation. This makes the volca kick a very charming bass synthesizer, which can also effectively convert the legato game into glides (no new envelope start). And so I would be synonymous with answering my entrance question: for me, the volca kick is a great bass synth, which fits very well in the mix and in which the game with flowing transitions to the electronic percussion is extremely much fun (YT: " Drum Or Bass? "Session). Conclusion: only for kick drums much too bad! However, I must also mention in the context that with my device in the warm-up phase (lasts!) A clear distortion can be audible from time to time, which is corrected by the autotuning then again, but makes itself unpleasantly noticeable, since the correction Only with some delay. KORG recommends to pause about 10 seconds in the operating manual, in case of a possible detuning ... For processing two points deduction. I will keep the kick box in any case and I assume that the problem will be solved within the warranty or at least still defuse. As long as the old analogue technique applies, the motto is: one hour before, then the small shows what he can!

Crass part with bars in unexpected areas.

test, 22.11.2016
It's a simple kick. Present in the middle with depth.
Or a perfect working bass.
Or a massive Dubstepbass wall.
Or somewhere further up in the frequency range a 303 for people who keep Roland's boxes for gameplay.
Or a nice subbass, which does not interfere with other synths and provides a solid foundation.
"Volca Beast" would be a more appropriate name.
A pattern can be up to 16 steps long. All 16 patterns can be concatenated. And already the drum track has 64 bars.
