Following the Korg monotron, monotribe, and MS-20 Mini analog synthesizers, Korg announces the volca beats.
Volca beats is an analog rhythm machine that provides carefully selected parameters that allow the user to
create a diverse array of fat sounds that can be obtained only from an analog device. Volca beats is also equipped

grooves with ease and depth.

drum parts. Instant editing via the intuitive user interface allows you to cut/mix/slice your loops
on the fly to deliver devastating analogue rhythm experiences.
