My favorite Volca
Chri5-HT, 13.07.2018
This thing's a beast, I use it mainly with my volca sample to add that analogue oomph that I felt the sample was missing.

It works as a kick obviously but it can also do massive sub-basslines, there are also some good videos of people using it to play melodies via MIDI [see Oscillator Sink].

Pros:
Massive sound.
Same form-factor as the other volcas.
Fun to mess around on!
Cons:
Some blips at the start of pattern-chained sequences.
Relatively low feature-to-cost ratio (touch FX are cool tho)

Conclusion:
It's probably my favorite volca, for some reason it's simplicity speaks to me.

Awesome kick drum synthesizer. Use it for my techno productions. Much easier than searching for perfect kick drum from sample libraries :) Better make your own. Quick intuitive and result is great!

Most underwhelming Volca
E M , 16.04.2019
Even though I'm a Volca enthusiast, to me the Kick is a rather underwhelming instrument. As a kick sound generator it has some uses, but I find the humble volca beats, with its 3-knobs engine, more suitable for most applications. Apart from that the Volca Kick can be used as a (sub) bass machine and as a sine whistle synth, and it's versatile enough to produce a few weird noises... but that's all.
The "accent" feature is too clicky, in an unpleasant way, and when the instrument is powered from AC there's a bit too much background noise.
