More explorations of the KORG Volca Bass Synth

August 23, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

KORG Volca Bass is a three oscillator (not only) bass synthesizer capable of very wicked sounds. On this video, some fiddling with front panel synth controls and function capabilities (osc waves, LFO routing, EG configuration, AMP control). Factory patterns courtesy of KORG.

KORG Volca Bass can use Active Step function for resize in real time the running pattern; is it possible to individually turn on/off each step and, as you can imagine, rhythmic alignment goes bananas. On this video, some experiments with standalone Active Step function on Volca Bass and, later on, some silly experiments with Volca Bass & Volca Drums TTL synched.

MIDI Implementation of KORG Volca Bass supports Real Time Messages (Start/Stop, Clock…), ALL the front panel controls (via CC numbers) and MIDI notes on/off for using Volca Bass as “standard” mono Synth Expander. You have three analog square/saw oscs, a 12dB/Oct resonant filter, vca, EG ADSR/ADR, LFO…

KORG Volca Beats – Sync experiments

August 19, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

KORG Volca Beats can be synched to ext MIDI Clock Source (with clock, start & stop) or with an analog TTL clock source. On this video, three experiments: a) Volca Beats under KORG Z1 Arpeggiator’s Clock (no start/stop transmitted); b) Volca Beats under TTL clock from Dark Time (no start/stop, no reset transmitted); c) Volca Beats under Gate 2 Out from Dark Time (start/stop extracted from analog gates, no reset). In all three cases, the internal Stutter delay time (in Volca Beats) is faithfully recalculated in real time at varying of external clock.

Exploring the KORG Volca series

KORG Volca Beat has two Motion Recorder for track parameter variations in Stutter Delay Depth + Time and PCM Sounds Playback Speed. While in Record, you can automate parameters and, with a bit of skill, you can enhance the whole pattern. Not easy as it seems, but effective.

The KORG Volca Beats has six analog sounds (Kick, Snare, Lo/Hi Tom, Closed/Open Hat) and four PCM sounds (Clap, Agogo, Clave, Crash). In this video, there’s a quick run on the internal sounds, with coverage of main parameters. Warning: do not attempt to hear sounds thru PC internal speakers… especially Kick sound goes very low. No music on this video, just internal sounds from Volca Beats.
