Korg Volca Drum
Welcome to an infinitely expanding world of sound-design. The Volca Drum joins the volca kick and beats as the third, and most unique, drum synth in the volca line up
The volca series is all about unique sound. Whether it's analog, PCM, or FM, the volca series puts unique sounds into an accessible platform. And now, the series is joined by a new rhythm machine that brings yet another sonic character. It's the Volca Drum digital percussion synthesizer.
A wide range of sound variation
Digital percussion synth with a 6-part x 2-layer structure.
volca drum has 6 parts, and 2 layers per part. This structure allows users to use noise sources with multiple resonant filter options and audio rate pitch modulators for metallic FM sounds. This is not your standard drum machine producing traditional drum sounds!
Distinctive sound from a newly developed DSP engine
Each part consists of two layers. For each layer, users choose one of five types of oscillator waveform including sine wave, sawtooth wave, and HPF noise, and also choose from three types of pitch modulator and amp EG, each optimized for drum sounds
Waveguide resonator adds rich resonances
The effect section features a waveguide resonator that's based on physical modelling, and add resonances to the sound.
