Korg Volca Drum

In advance of NAMM 2019 (the yearly music gear lust fest) Korg announced the perfect balance between portability and usefulness. The Korg Volca Drum is looking to be a fun and immediate portable drum machine. Less of a toy, this time around it’s a Volca you can actually put to good use in music production and live performance.

What’s the Volca Drum?

The Volca Drum is a digital percussion synthesizer allowing you to sequence a rhythm using the signature sixteen steps on the machine. It’s not built as a run-of-the-mill drum machine with the same ol’ 808 kick and clap in a new jacket. No, with the Volca Drum can get adventurous and get interesting moving sounds and poly-rhythms. Good for endless knob tweaking.
