Korg’s Volca Drum is a drum synthesis powerhouse in a quirky little package. It features six identical drum voices, each with 2 layers of sound generation that can be modulated, run through a wavefolder, overdrive, and a bitcrusher, and then into a shared resonator engine. All of this can be programmed from a standard Volca step sequencer with motion sequencing and some unique percussion tricks up its sleeve.
Twiddle those knobs and you can dial in impossibly deep kicks, cracking snares, church bells, disco toms, classic claps, metallic plinks and plonks, and all kinds of alien bleeps and bloops.
This sample pack includes:
- An Ableton pack with 16 instruments
- 40 drum loops
- 38 snares
- 35 melodic sounds (tuned to C)
- 30 kick drums (14 of them tuned to C)
- 30 hi-hats
- 22 percussion sounds
- 13 claps
- 10 cymbals
All the samples and loops are straight from the Volca Drum with no other processing.
For the first time, audio files are included in two different formats:
- 24 bit, 48kHz WAV
- 16 bit, 44.1kHz WAV
You can also receive this premium sample pack by making a donation of $10+ to a charity of your choice. I like Emancipate NC but you should feel free to choose a non-profit that you'd like to support. Just take a screenshot of your receipt and email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send you a code for a free download.
