Product Description

Peerless beats generated by solid analog drum sounds and an Electribe-style sequencer
Even today, more than thirty years after the age dominated by analog synthesizers, we just can't let go of the sound of analog rhythm machines. Those thick sounds have the power to stand up to guitar and acoustic drums, and are still indispensable for track-making or live performance.

The volca beats gives you those analog drums plus the easy-to-use step sequencer of the Electribe; it lets you turn your inspiration into reality and generate beats with the best high quality sounds.

Powerful analog drum sounds

  • Real analog sounds created with reference to classic rhythm machines
  • Maximum effect from minimal parameters - a unique advantage of analog
  • PCM sound engine expands possibilities when used with analog sounds

Loop sequencer distilled from the Electribe series

  • The Electribe series step sequencer 
  • Stutter function generates repeated triggers that dramatically change the sequence
  • Active Step function generates new bass lines by removing or inserting steps. 
  • Step Jump function instantly plays only the step you're pressing

Convenient functions for incredible ease of use

  • SYNC jack and MIDI IN connector allow synchronized performances with multiple units or with your DAW
  • Compact size, battery-powered operation, and built-in speaker for enjoyment anywhere

Real analog sounds created with reference to classic rhythm machines
The volca beats provides six of the sounds for which the greatness of analog shines most clearly: Kick, Snare, Hi Tom, Lo Tom, Closed Hi Hat, and Open Hi Hat. Paying careful attention to the standard sounds that are indispensable for dance music and that are included on numerous synthesizers and sampling CDs, we've designed powerful new sounds that could not be produced by any means other than analog.

Maximum impact from minimal parameters - a unique advantage of analog
The volca beats provides a carefully selected minimal set of parameters that let you quickly create the drum sound you want. For example, simply by using the three knobs Click, Pitch, and Decay, you can create an incredible variety of kick sounds, ranging from rough sounds that dominate the low range to tight sounds that keep a precise beat.

Regardless of the settings, all of these sounds will have great presence and density, and will deliver the convincing power that's possible only from an analog sound generator.

PCM sound engine covers sounds for which analog is unsuited
The PCM sound engine is used to cover sounds for which an analog synth is unsuited, such as Clap, Claves, Agogo, and Crash. We've also paid attention to the PCM engine, and have reproduced the rough lo-fi sound of the '80s. These sounds are a good match with the analog drums, and you can also create even more distinctive sounds by changing the PCM Speed to dramatically raise or lower the pitch.
