The Korg Volca Drum represents Korg's continued approach to an infinitely expanding world of sound design.

Volca Drum has been designed in tandem with other Korg Volca percussion synths - the Volca Kick and Volca Beats. As the third piece of the puzzle, Korg Volca Drum delivers a digital drum soundscape for loops, grooves and percussive tracks, each with fine-tunable parameters and a powerful step sequencer.

Explore Rhythm Synthesis

If you're looking for a unique sonic twist as part of a modular synth setup, or want to step away from traditional DAW Loop-Based sequencing, the Korg Volca Drum represents a great opportunity.

With fully hands-on automation control, a flexible digital synth engine and randomize features, it's an ideal way to add a new texture to your backing tracks or provide a solid foundation for adding layers and sounds from analogue synth sources.

Versatile Digital DSP Engine

The term "digital" typically brings to mind sounds that are based on PCM-sampled bass drum, snare drum, or cymbal, but the volca drum creates its drum sounds by DSP-powered analog modeling. Oscillator waveforms such as sine wave, sawtooth wave, and noise are provided. By applying various changes to these waveforms, you can create a wide variety of percussion sounds that range from realistic to idiosyncratic, and are not limited only to drums.

The six parts each have two layers, and do not impose any rules or restrictions such as specifying which parts must be used for the bass drum or for the cymbal; all parts have the same specifications. You can freely assign your new sounds to these six parts without being limited by the conventions of a drum set. A kit consists of the six parts that you've assigned plus the waveguide resonator effect settings, and 16 such kits can be stored in memory (the factory settings contain 10 preload kits).

Korg Volca Series Continues

The Volca series is all about unique sound. Whether it's analog, PCM, or FM, the volca series puts unique sounds into an accessible platform. And now, the series is joined by a new rhythm machine that brings yet another sonic character.
