An analogue kick generator that delivers powerful sounds from kick drum to kick bass. The volca series has consistently brought renewed attention to classic groove machines and historical synthesis. It now has a new focus. This time, it's the most important sound in dance music: the kick.
The KORG Volca Kick is an analogue kick generator that's made for sound design. An analogue 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 analogue circuitry, ranging from solid kick drums to crisp kick basses. The 16-step sequencer, a distinctive feature of the volca, now hasa new Touch FX feature that lets you control an effect instantly, giving you even more live performance potential. Experience the stunning power of an analogue kick that cannot be obtained from a plug-in or a sample.
Analog kick sounds generated by MS-20 filter oscillation:
The KORG Volca Kick generates powerfully present kick sounds using a completely analogue circuit. To create those sounds, it uses not a typical sine wave, but the sound of an oscillating filter from the original MS-20. The powerful Rev.1 filter of the MS-20 self-oscillates when resonance is increased to the maximum, and this is used to produce powerful kick sounds with complex overtones.
Simple and effective parameters are provided, allowing you to freely design a wide range of kick sounds to your taste. Start the sound design process by using MS-20 RESONATOR (PITCH/BEND/TIME) to control the sense of pitch that generates the body resonance of the kick sound. Then use PULSE COLOUR/LEVEL to adjust the clip components to control the sense of attack, and AMP ATTACK/DECAY to intuitively control the decay of the sound. From tight kicks to fat, slow-decaying kicks, and pitched kick bass, it's possible to create kick sounds that are appropriate for every type of dance music.
Aggressively control the sound using DRIVE and TONE:
In addition to the analogue kick generator circuit based on the MS-20 filter, there's an analogue drive that includes multiple stages of distortion. The distortion level and type can be varied by a single knob, increasing the variety and power of
