Analogue Drum Machine

The Volca Beats is a genuine analogue drum machine, providing classic sounds that can be pushed to modern limits. Each part sounds great, and is easy to control with the clean user interface. These aren’t mere samples, this is a living breathing instrument!

Electribe-influenced Step Sequencer

The sequencer on the Volca Beats is a loop sequencer derived from the legendary Electribe unit. It is very easy to use, and provides visual feedback when programming steps in so you can see where they will land. The sequencer buttons can also be played in real time as a keyboard!

Customer reviews

Overall Rating 4.4/5 (5 reviews)

I really like the analog feeling of the Volca Beats. You pretty much get a light-sounding 808 for 100 pounds. It doesn't sound really professional so don't expect it to substitute for a drummer or for a (much) more expensive drum-machine. But it is certainly fun to play with and probably a good choice for starting up in analog-drum-beats making.

Volca Beats: As with most things, you get what you pay for. If you're in the market for a dead serious drum machine, this may -not- be the one for you. The snare is VERY weak, but thankfully the rest of the sounds, both analog and PCM, are reasonable, and the kick is great. Sequencer is also quite fun and very easy to use, motion sequencing and the delay are both interesting features. <br/> <br/>Overall, if you want something with an impressive sound, you'll probably want to move on - it's ultimately worth the price though, for the sound it does have and for ease of use, plus the MIDI in.
