Korg Volca Kick Drum Synthesizer
The Korg Volca Kick Drum Synthesizer adds booming bass drops and pounding kick drums to its Volca range with the Volca Kick analog kick generator. Based around the resonant filter circuit from Korg's MS-20 synthesizer, Volca Kick delivers powerful low end for big bass and powerful percussion.
The Volca Kick is a natural choice if you're producing trap, drum 'n' bass, dub, hip hop, or other sub-heavy genres. And with control over envelope and tone, plus a built-in overdrive circuit, it's got the flexibility to generate kicks and bass effects appropriate for any style of electronic music.
Korg has gotten a lot of mileage out of their MS-20 filter circuit, and for good reason: producers around the world love it for its aggressive character and wide resonance range. It's common to use pitch and filter modulation when crafting kick drum sounds, and the Volca Kick simplifies this down to three knobs in the Resonator section: Pitch, Bend, and Time. Once you've dialled in the Amp Envelope and Pulse settings to get your sound started, start playing with the Resonator section to really make it something special.
Instead of searching through sample libraries or presets for the "right" kick drum sound, why not just craft your own? It's not a new concept, but the Korg Volca Kick makes it easy to generate a huge range of kick and bass sounds. If you're performing live, people will notice that your set punches through the speakers. And in your studio, MIDI input makes it easy to trigger the Volca Kick from a track you're working on, and record as many variations of kicks and basses as you want as audio tracks.
