Best volca to have
podsky, 25.11.2020
Everyone have his/hers favourite volca, for me it is the Drum.

1. You can use it as a standard drum machine for a simple setup

or

2. You can fiddle with every sound (there are 6 parts), in many, many ways. If you know even a bit about analog synthesis - this will be a fun process. After you will arrive at the set of 6, you can than sequence them and save your preset. And than - you can chain patterns!

The waveguide effect is something interesting. Not very easy to use, it can be a bit unpredictable at the beggining, but - well - you can arrive at interesting delay/repeat/echo effects with it.

Great little machine!
Old Murray, 11.08.2020
I saw a review on youtube and one of the users was complaining that he "couldn't get a usable sound out of it".
Well, that seems more like he's the one at fault, and certainly not this little wonder.
Its elasticity of sound is amazing. Not so complicated to use once you go around a couple of times through the parameters.
Active step is a wonder for polyrhythms and the ability to change to sound concepts are a big plus.
Overall really pleased with the Volca Drum.

Versatile and great sounding
6000, 10.12.2020
Volca Drum is just a fantastic creative tool. Don't expect classic 808 sounds (even though it can do them as well) but much more versatile sound palette - it offers almost endless amount of new, original sounds that you can come up with. Combine it with your outboard or plugin FX of choice and it's even more great.
