The Volca Sample can be a source of floor-shaking drums or any material you care to cram into its 4MB memory. Despite a few niggles, not least the restriction that samples must be imported by iOS, this is the best Volca to date!

  • +

    The most versatile Volca yet thanks to extensive and instant sample manipulation., Affordable and portable, carry your favourite samples anywhere., Friendly, effective sound-shaping courtesy of the Analogue Isolator., Syncs to MIDI or analogue clock.

  • -

    Only 10 patterns., The MIDI implementation is rather undisciplined.

While each had its own minor limitations, foibles and flaws, it would have been hard not to fall for the trio of instruments that comprised Korg's initial Volca range.

The Volca Sample is easily the most inexpensive, user friendly sample-playback device with a built in 16 step XOX style step sequencer on the market! For the price you're getting way more than you bargained for.

Great fun. Some slamming kick drum sounds.

Incredible digital sound quality with analog aspects (the two isolating knobs) and handheld size make it a huge winner! The sample memory is small so pitching up vocal samples helps immensely to get them into the 4MB memory.

The korg volca sampler is a pretty cool, affordable sampler sequencer. The learning curve isn't too steep and once you 'get it', the ability to create very spontaneously makes his box a must have.

Right out of the box, if you posses any creativity the possibilities are endless. The built in samples are more then enough to create for days. Using the apps available for IOS or Android make it where you can use any sample you'd like even things you record on your own.

I got the Volva Sample to add sampling capabilities to my live rig, and what an inspired step it was! The Vsample allows easy and intuitive manipulation of short samples that can be used and abused in any way imaginable.

Boy does this thing add a load of flexibility to any setup. In conjunction with the Korg Volca Beats, Bass & Keys this thing rocks, by itself this thing rocks. So many ways to edit, alter, and modify samples right on the front panel.

    Affordable, Comprehensive, easy to use, Flexible, fun

Fantastic edition to the Volca range. The reverb and isolator sounds great, and the 'swing' option is most welcome when connecting to other Volcas. The most fun to be had is using your own samples although the factory set of 100 are really good in their own right.

Product Description
The volca sample is a sample sequencer that lets you edit and sequence up to 100 sample sounds in real time for powerful live performances. It' a powerful addition to any existing volca setup, or simply on its own. The new volca lets you recapture the excitement of the first generation of samplers, in which any sound --- vocals, spoken words, ambient sound, or glitches --- becomes material for your creations!A fun to use sequencerThe step sequencer is designed for ease of editing and to allow parts to be inserted or removed "on the fly." Use the 16 step keys to enter notes intuitively while maintaining visual confirmation of the timing of the notes in a measure. You can also record your performance in real time.Up to ten of the sequence patterns you create can be stored in internal memory.Motion sequencer records and plays back up to 11 parametersThe motion sequence function records your knob movements, letting you add time-varying change to the sound. This is a great way to polish your loops, and also lets you generate highly original live performances. The volca sample is able to record all knob movements that are related to sound editing. This allows sophisticated editing that had been impossible for hardware samplers of this category.Active Step and Step Jump functions let you insert and remove stepsThe Active Step function lets you skip steps during the sequence, and the Step Jump function lets you instantly play just the step that you're pressing. From short-loop effects to unimaginably irregular rhythms, these functions allow dynamic performances as though you were performing the sequence itself.Swing function generates groovesThe Swing function adjusts the swing playback position, generating the distinctive groove of dance music styles such as hip-hop. As appropriate for the character of your song, you can shift between rushing and dragging the beat.Analog Isolator provides powerful and great-sounding possibilitiesvolca sample features a frequency isolator, which has become a powerful tool in the creation of numerous electronic genres. This lets you apply powerful changes to the sound and create development and breaks by boosting or cutting the low/high ranges. The isolator is implemented as an analog circuit, ensuring thick sound even in the flat position.Reverb Per PartThe built-in reverb effect can be switched on/off for each part. The isolator and reverb can be used together, enhancing your live performance with possibilities such as cutting the low range and letting it fly.Song mode for more dynamic performancesIn a first for the volca series, a Song mode is featured. You can save up to six song patterns, each combining up to 16 sequences. This enables performance possibilities that are unique to the volca sample with its ability to play a diverse range of samples; for example you could play back together with another synchronized volca unit while dramatically changing the rhythm pattern of the volca sample.Reverse function lets you play samples backwardThe sample reverse playback that's indispensable for hip-hop is provided, and you can turn it on/off independently for each part.
