KORG Volca Kick Announced

Korg's latest addition to the Volca line is a dedicated Kick Drum module, with a sound shaped from an MS-20 filter. While not a traditional drum synth like Roland's offerings, this does provide a classic analog richness with its own character.

Korg has also announced a trio of in-ear metronomes designed with specific markets in mind. There is a synchronized metronome for musicians to keep time together, and a similar one for ballroom dancing. There's also one that's supposed to make you good at golf, because reasons.

Here's a demo for the Volca Kick, featuring Chief Engineer Tatsuya Takahashi jamming out on his creation!

Video Description:

An analog kick generator that delivers powerful sounds from kick drum to kick bass. More about volca kick at: http://www.korg.com/volca_kick/

Chief Engineer Tatsuya Takahashi demos the analogue kick generator based on the MS-20 rev.1 filter in oscillation. All sounds created by one volca kick and one volca sample.

Seriously? A box that does one thing? A kick? Jeez.....if we keep going down that route, we'll have setups of 14 or 15 modules. One for hi-hat open, one for hi-hat closed, one for stick-thingy that I use only very occasionally in my elaborate studio.....

Oh my gosh!

Why spend less, when you can spend more ....

Finally, Korg creates their own brand of shoe!


Actually though, having been eyeing the M.Base, I'd be curious to see how this compares.

Please do keep taking the piss, cos those like me, who think Korg may gave another classic on their hands with this one, well, we get to sound unique. And in this day and age of everyone pretty much sounding the same, that has many advantages. :)

Or maybe that's the intention? Yeah. You're right. It's shit. Don't bother.... ;-)
