Following in the footsteps of the monotron, monotribe, and MS-20 Mini analog synthesizers, Korg announces the Volca series. volca is a new lineup of EDM production tools. These powerful and fun-to-use true-analog devices deliver a diverse array of fat sounds that can be obtained only from an analog synthesizer. Each is also equipped with sequencing/recording capabilities for intuitively generating performances. Multiple volcas can be used in tandem via the vintage-style sync in/out, and with your favorite DAW software or MIDI keyboard via MIDI In. Battery operation and built-in speakers mean that you can conveniently play anywhere and anytime. These are the next-generation analog synthesizers, bringing you the ultimate sounds and grooves with ease and depth. Whether used together or by themselves, the volca series is poised to inject true analog power into any performance or studio setup!
Aggressive sounds that stand up to the drums; fat sounds that support the rhythm; funky sounds that generate a groove - the volca Bass is an analog groove box that has what you need for a wide range of bass lines.
Although simple in structure, the analog sound engine has an unmistakable presence with subtle nuances that cannot be reproduced by a digital simulation; it's a great choice for acid house and many other styles of music.

Comments about Korg Volca Bass Analog Bass Machine:
I've been playing with the Volca bass for a couple weeks now, definitely a fun toy, good at doing classic acid sounds and squelchy filtered bass. one downside is the filter envelope only sweeps about 40% of the full range of the filter, and the decay gets way too short at the 12 o'clock position, so about half the decay knob doesn't do too much. This tool(toy) is also modifiable with patch points labeled on the inside(this will void your warranty of course) Square wave sounds great, saw wave is nice and growly, the bass punches through on this machine better than any of my software or digital hardware, but it definitely gets gritty and dirty pretty fast(tone wise) the batteries have been lasting for a good time already programming is intuitive and fun if you want to plug this into a mono 1/4 inch jack you will need a proper connector or else you'll have to plug the headphone jack halfway in so the right channel connects
