The Volca Sample is a sample player + sequencer, and it's actually pretty cool. The samples I use here are the standard set, but you can upload your own. You can modify the samples in various ways, and every parameter except the sample selection can be sequenced.

However, the Volca Sample has too few patterns (only 8) and to few song slots (4) to be usable live. What live set has only four songs? And it would have been nice if the Song sequencing would remember not just the pattern, but which channels where muted. That would make the Volca Sample a fully fledged drum machine that very well could be used professionally. For under $200.

Now it's usable in a studio if you don't like using your software sampler, or if you want something to play with that runs on batteries.

If you don't get Volca sample to connect with something else, except you are fan of non modulated, rhytmical, sample techno jamming, joy will soon fade away. Melodies can be made, although with difficulty-but with only few modulating possibilities and weak sequencer possibilities, they'll soon became percussions, too. If it haven't sample looping and start/lenght parameter with motion sequence recording, maybe plus pitch envelope to slightly, blindly modify them (can't be serious transposition), it would be pretty boring short_sample_in_sequence player. But as cheap drum/percussion/bleep generating sequencer with motion parameter recorder, to connect with other melodic gear for jamm, or small live performance, it's great.

Pros
- Quite extensive hardware sample manipulation
- Better experience than anything done with mouse on pc.
- Almost granular synth type manipulation with looping.
- Active step and step jump
- Great sensitive main sequence ribbon.
- Small, cheap, mobile.
- Midi/cv clock

Cons
- Only 10 patterns from which can be sequenced 6 songs with 16 pattern changes and you can't change almost anything in song mode, not even mute the part = song mode quite unusable.
- because of weak song mode, 16 steps per pattern are not enough for melody/drone synth to not became static, figurative/percussive sound.
- Lack of melody sound modulators (resonance, phaser, or distortion would change a lot)
- As far as I know, in pattern mode, patterns are changed only instantly (although quantizied), not good for live pattern jamming with other gear.
- Reverb acting as insert effect dips dry sound too quick
- For someone, problematic midi control with channel per part
- Analogue isolator is just a great name for bass/high eq
- For longer samples use, small internal memory with clumsy, but retro-nostalgic procedure.
