Roland TR-808 vs Korg Volca Beats

January 13, 2016 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Background video description:

I noticed there was no TR-808 / Volca Beats comparison on YouTube, so I thought of posting one for today’s daily video. I know, I know… it’s sort of a silly endeavor and also a bit unfair to compare a mega-classic that these days goes for $3K to a super-cute little $150 box… but I think both machines are great and each has their own unique character! I have to say, I am impressed by the whole Volca line (I recently got all four models and will be posting videos of the others soon). The bass drum on the Volca Beats is amazing, by the way!

In this video, we hook up the Roland TR8, Access Virus C and Korg Volca Bass for a downtempo electronic trip.

Sequencer A controls the Virus C, while Sequencer D controls the Volca Bass. The Komplex is slaved to the TR8’s MIDI clock. The skip step mode is used on the Volca Bass to vary the bassline. Meanwhile, ratcheting repeats are added to the Virus C’s pattern to create unique rhythms. The gate length and output range also change.

Live jam with Volca Bass, Volca Sample, Microbrute, Mopho & MFB 522

August 6, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Background video description:

Here’s another live jam with my baseline setup Korg Volca Bass, Korg Volca Sample and Arturia Microbrute. This time, they get accompanied by the MFB 522 drumcomputer and David Smith Instruments Mopho.
As with all my other jams, I only used the internal sequencers which are synchronized with the Master Midi clock from the Electribe ER-1. Some reverb and delay is added on most of the sounds (Alesis Quadraverb 2, Alesis Midiverb 3 and Lexicon MX200).

If you liked this one, you might want to check out my other Volca-Microbrute jams in this playlist:…

Thanks for watching and cheers!
