Korg today introduced the Volca Sample – a sample player/sequencer that lets you edit and sequence up to 100 sample sounds in realtime.
According to Korg, the new Volca “lets you recapture the excitement of the first generation of samplers, in which any sound — vocals, spoken words, ambient sound, or glitches — becomes material for your creations!”
The latest in the Volca series is a sample sequencer – it does not let you create new samples. Korg offers a free companion app for iOS that lets you load samples and create new samples.
Here’s a video intro to the Korg Volca Sample:
- 16 step keys to enter notes intuitively while maintaining visual confirmation of the timing of the notes in a measure.
- Real time recording
- Up to ten of the sequence patterns you create can be stored in internal memory.
- Motion sequencer records and plays back up to 11 parameters
- Active Step and Step Jump functions let you insert and remove steps
- Analog frequency isolator lets you apply powerful changes to the sound
- Per part reverb
- Song mode
- Reverse function lets you play samples backwards
- Playback can be synchronized with another volca or electribe unit, or with your DAW.
- Compact size, battery power and built-in speaker for mobile operation
Pricing and availability for the Korg Volca Sample are to be announced. See the Korg site for details.
