Korg Volca Makes EDM Affordable & Accessible

Submitted by on November 15, 2013 – 3:31 pm No Comment

For those who are just getting into synth for the first time, the world of making new sounds can sometimes be intimidating. From waveguides to foreign slang to digital or analog concepts, it is enough to blow the mind of a first-time synth lover.

That’s what makes the Volca series from Korg such a great addition to the synth family. With three true analog synthesizers that give you a great lead, a strong bass, and a foundational beat, it is easy for anyone to experiment with audio creations in just minutes.

The best part? Each Volca has an MSRP of just $149.

Strong Rhythms Create Incredible Music

Electronic music is becoming more popular every day for one simple reason: it has the power to create strong, consistent rhythms. Whether you want to create a standard 4/4 beat to make a classic twist on a piano-based piece or you want a slow 6/8 rhythm that can help people grind slowly on the dance floor, the analog Volca rhythm machine by Korg has the strength to be able to provide any beat, any rhythm, so that your listeners can bob their heads and tap their feet.

Powerful Basslines Help Your Listeners Want To Move

What’s the problem with so many modern basslines? The fact that they are only 1 measure long! That means at most, you get maybe 9 beats if you’re using a crazy 9/8 music signature. In a standard 3/4 time, you can insert a couple triplicates if you wish. With the Volca series by Korg, you can dominate your audio creations with a powerful bass track that can be unique for as much as 16 measures at 4/4 time. This allows you to create incredible, complicated, and sturdy basslines that will make your music truly one-of-a-kind.

A Modifiable Lead Synthesis That Will Create Stunning Sounds

Have you got a melody in your head that you want to share with the world? With just a few quick notes, you can create a perfect melody that you can extensively modify so that the input from your brain matches the output from the Korg Volca. Because these analog synths run on batteries instead of amps or phantom power, you can always take your melodic synth with you and work out a tune when the creativity strikes you.

Because all three of these boxes work in conjunction with each other and there is no limit to the amount of boxes you hook up together, you can get a full sound and still keep a full checkbook too. With Korg Volca, the days of spending thousands of dollars to get just one piece of equipment are over!

Is It Time To Take Your Synth To the Next Level?

Korg Volca is one of those truly great examples of technology that everyone who loves synth should have. It’s easy enough to use so that a beginner can create legit sounds, while complicated enough so that even the most experienced synth users can enhance their signature sounds and dominate the audio cavities of their listeners. Try them for yourself and you will see why those why love synth are also falling in love with Korg all over again.
