Korg's Volca Drum is another addition to the innovative Volca Series, this time offering a combination of virtual analog and physical modeling techniques to create highly customizable kits of electronic percussion sounds. Each voice offers identical synthesis facilities, making no distinction between "kick," "snare," "tom," or any other type of sound. This means that users can create extremely varied kits, each comprised of six sounds with two layers each. Based on analog modeling and an optional waveguide resonator, the Volca Drum allows everything from classic noise burst percussion to twangy stringlike sounds, powerful chimes, and completely unheard, implausible new tones.
A custom LCD provides visual feedback specific to whichever sound is selected, and an expanded Volca sequencer offers sequence randomization, motion recording, pattern chaining, active step editing, and all the niceties one could expect from a Volca. Perhaps one of the most progressive Volcas in terms of sound design, the Volca Drum is sure to earn its place in the performance rigs and studios of countless musicians.
