Korg Volca Bass Mods / Hacks – Distortion & VCO Level Pots

This video, via reader Darren Glen, demonstrates a couple of Korg Volca Bass mods.

Here’s what he has to say about them:

Following on from my work on Mods for the Volca Beats i am working on some much requested (and useful) mods for the Volca Bass.

Two demonstrated here, adding a Distortion / Drive knob to kick up some angry grunt inside the little silver box, and individual adjustable level knobs for the VCOs (ive demonstrated it with the VCO2 here)…this makes for a much wider sonic pallet as the standard VBass only has the option of ON or OFF for the VCOs.

Being able to mix in the VCO2 and VCO3 at different levels makes a big difference.
