The Volca Kick - Analog Kick Generator from Korg features an analog circuit based on the powerful resonant sound of the original MS-20 filter and creates a wide range of kick sounds only possible through analog circuitry. Possible tones range from solid kick drums to crisp kick basses. The integrated 16-step sequencer features Touch FX, which lets you control an effect instantly, giving you unprecedented live performance potential. Pattern chaining allows you to create a large-scale structure of 256 steps (16 steps x 16 patterns). The unit can also be controlled with its multi-touch keys allowing for pitched sequences for creating kick-basslines well suited for trap and grime.
Designed with a straightforward structure, the Volca Kick utilizes the MS-20 Resonator (Pitch/Bend/Time) to generate the core tone, while the Pulse Color/Level adds the initial attack and the Amp Attack/Decay adjusts the decay of the sound. Use the Drive and Tone controls to add multiple stages of distortion and adjust the high frequencies. The unit can receive MIDI from an external controller or DAW via its 5-pin DIN connector. Multiple units from the Volca line can be clock-synced with the 1/8" Sync In and Out connectors. It can be powered by the included six AA batteries or with the optional KA-350 AC adapter.
