The Volca Analog Bass Machine Synthesizer from Korg features three self-tuning analog oscillators as well as an analog filter. The synthesizer can be controlled with its Multi-Touch keys or the built-in Electribe-style 16-step sequencer with slide function. The sequencer has eight memory patches for storing your settings and an Active Step function that can remove or insert steps to help create new bass lines.
Designed with a straightforward structure, the Volca Bass has a single voltage-controlled filter (VCF), voltage-controlled amplifier (VCA), low frequency oscillator (LFO), and envelope generator (EG). 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 six AA batteries or with the optional KA-350 AC adapter.
