Even today, more than thirty years after the age dominated by analog synthesizers, we just can't let go of the sound of analog rhythm machines. Those thick sounds have the power to stand up to guitar and acoustic drums, and are still indispensable for track-making or live performance. The volca Beats gives you those analog drums plus the easy-to-use step sequencer of the Electribe; it lets you turn your inspiration into reality and generate beats with the best high quality sounds.

Powerful analog drum sounds
  • Real analog sounds created with reference to classic rhythm machines
  • Six editable analogue parts with one knob per function for easy editing
  • Maximum effect from minimal parameters - a unique advantage of analog
  • PCM sound engine expands possibilities when used with analog sounds

Loop sequencer distilled from the Electribe series
  • Electribe-style 16-step sequencer with eight memory patches
  • Stutter function generates repeated triggers that dramatically change the sequence
  • Active Step function generates new bass lines by removing or inserting steps.
  • Step Jump function instantly plays only the step you're pressing

Convenient functions for incredible ease of use
  • Sync In and Out allows clock sync of multiple instruments
  • MIDI In for note entry, plus external sync and control from your DAW
  • Go-anywhere analogue: play anywhere with the built-in speaker and optional battery power

Crisp and clear sounds, great for picking up and jamming on the go. I sync it to my other Korg Volcas and enjoy making patterns and sections with them.



A versatile analog drum machine


One thing I use this for is setting a drum rhythm and playing keyboard or bass along with it. The patterns that can be programmed are much more fun to jam with than just a regular drum machine. I also use it a lot for writing/recording music. The sounds can all be customized and automated to achieve the sound of many drum machines linked together. The sound is crystal clear, too, and good enough to be used in any recording situation.
