Volca Sample Jam #3

By cTrix on April 8, 2018 10:35 am

Volca Sample (version 1) with factory sounds.  Still have never gotton the stupid sample transfer to work on this thing!!  But it's a fun challenge to try and keep making semi-fresh tracks by repitching and changing params of included samples.  The bass is a tom pitched down, the kick reshaped + pitched, a lot of manual dynamics,etc, using the per-step param changes.  100% pure Volca.  Some parts recorded and mixed separately in Reaper to apply super long reverbs etc.
Oh - and because the unit only has 8 memories for tracks and I'm out of space - I hit power at the end of this jam and the track was lose forever.  Honestly Korg... 8 x 1 bar memories and no way to do a back-up.

Killer track! Very Akufen-esque.

Really impressive that you did this in-unit!  Wow!  Bummer that you "lost it" but this track is awesome, so no need to tweak it!

The important part is that you learned something from the experience and made a neat track.
