Korg Volca Kick Bass Drum Synthesizer

Rich, deep, powerful -- all words that describe the punchy thickness of analog low end. Get your own analog kicks with the Korg Volca Kick bass drum synth.

The Korg Volca Kick is an analog kick generator that's made for sound design. An analog circuit based on the powerful resonant sound of the original MS-20 filter, it lets you create a wide range of kick sounds only possible through analog circuitry, ranging from solid kick drums to crisp kick basses.

The 16-step sequencer, a distinctive feature of the volca, now has a new Touch FX feature that lets you control an effect instantly, giving you even more live performance potential. Experience the stunning power of an analog kick that cannot be obtained from a plug-in or a sample.

"Great MS20 Kick"

Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
(see rating details)
The Korg Volca Kick is a fantastic and beefy analog percussion/bass module which, while limited, completely delivers. First off I love Korg so much more than Moog for its filters but specifically for its MS20 filter. This Volca takes the MS20 filter and puts it in kick form. I absolutely love the completely analog tones that come out of this thing. It is limited but what it does do it does so well. Everyone needs a solid kick for the foundation of any great track. This delivers in spades. I recommend slowing down your attack time to take away any clickiness to your kick. This will sound more natural. Also I recommend sampling your kick tone and using your Volca Kick sample in your sampler or DAW of your choosing. This way you get consistent phase interplay between this and other samples. Always check you phases. Especially with the kick, a random analog start phase to your sound will make the body of your track breathe in an undesirable way. The Volca Kick can also be used as a bass synth and, while I haven’t done this yet, I’m sure when I get around to it I’ll love it as well.
