This Limited Edition OK GO volca sample from Korg is packed with 100 samples from the album "Hungry Ghosts", including the vocal line from "I Won't Let you down" and the bass from "The Writing's On the Wall." Use the content to create your own version of OK GO's infectious tunes, mix and match your own samples to create remixes, or create entirely original sample based music using the on-board sequencer.
The volca sample is a digital sample sequencer that allows for sequencing up to one-hundred samples. The step sequencer is designed for ease of editing and to allow parts to be inserted or removed "on the fly." Sixteen step-keys enter notes while maintaining visual confirmation of the timing of the notes in a measure. A performance can be recorded in real time, and up to ten of the sequence patterns created can be stored in internal memory.
The motion sequence function records any time-varying changes made to the sound using the knob movements. An active step function allows for skipping steps during the sequence, and the step jump function instantly plays just the key-pressed step. A swing function adjusts the swing playback position, generating the distinctive groove of dance music styles.
A frequency isolator applies changes to the sound by boosting or cutting the low/high ranges with the isolator implemented as an analog circuit. The built-in reverb effect can be switched on/off for each part, and it is possible to save up to six song recordings, each combining up to sixteen sequences. Additional samples can be loaded using the volca sample's dedicated iOS app (the internal sounds are overwritten).
