This video, via SynthMania, captures a comparison between the Roland TR-808 vs the Korg Volca Beats.
Can a $150 Volca Beats hold its own against a classic Roland TR-808 Rhythm Composer, the analog drum machine by which all others are measured?
We’re going to go out on a limb and call the 808 the winner in this comparison, since it bests the Volca Beats in just about every way but price.
But that doesn’t keep this video from being fun comparison of the two machines – and a reminder that the Volca Beats is a fun and useful little box.
