The latest iteration adds a USB port and 8MB of sample memory, so this is a big upgrade. You just need to be careful about where you buy it to make sure you're getting the real deal, because just looking at the face it seems to be identical to the original.

0:25 randomizing samples
3:00 Jam Starting
Hello my friends
here it is, the Volca Sample 2. Many thanks to KORG for sending us this wonderful piece of hardware early on.
The first jam today is supposed to show a bit how easy it is to make music with the Volca sample, even if you are using random samples. Of course you don't have to do it the way I did, because the fun can quickly suffer if you catch samples that don't fit so well.
But you know me, always a challenge more when possible.
And I did such a Jam in my Jamuary 2020 here allready with the Volca Sample:
The most important differences between the Volca Sample and the second version are the micro USB port, which allows you to load samples faster (there is also software available for this), and the additional 50 samples on the device.
I will upload more videos to the Volca sample in the next few days so that you can get an impression of the variety of samples.
Since many will ask this question: Is it worth buying the sample v2 if you already have the first sample? The clear answer: no.
For everyone else who has been thinking of buying a Volca sample and may have stumbled over the usability (connection with 3.5 jack to load samples) can now access it without worries.
Have fun watching and imitating
