Korg Volca Beats and Bass gets Mangled by Elektron Octatrack

July 9, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Elektron Octatrack real-time sampling and mangling the Korg Volca units. http://www.elektron.se/products/octat…

I wanted to show how the Elektron Octatrack can take any audio and manipulate it in real time. Korg Volca Beats and Bass are routed into the Octatrack’s stereo inputs separately. By pressing YES on the Octatrack, I can capture the incoming audio and start mangling and re-arranging the recorded loop on the Octatrack. Sending MIDI out from Octatrack into Volca Beats and sync out into the Volca Bass.

I have created 2 Parts inside the Octatrack. Part 1 has got THRU machines where I can add FX to incoming audio. Part 2 has 2 Flex recording buffers assigned to it. So, I record the incoming audio on Part 1 and start manipulating the recording on Part 2.

Personally, I found the Volca Beats very limiting and the overall sound is not for me. The Bass one however is satisfying…
But for the price of them you can’t go wrong.
