cf357's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent mobile accessory"

Korg Volca Beats
Notable features:

o MIDI input, but not out!
o Audio out mono
o Section "keys" but not tactile Management velocity
o Storage of 8 sequences: too light, especially without export
o No power sector provided! (Batteries included but it's something)
o The global hash functions or pattern ("share") of good quality
o The rest has already been widely said again:-)


Super subjective opinion, but probably consensual:

The use is top, very intuitive interface, and a few "hidden" features fully explained in the manual that extend a few more features (for example: press <Func> + <Power> start to change global settings).


I was not sure what to expect:

o Excellent sound overall, slap in the ears!
o The bass drum is great, especially with the decay!
o The snare is not so successful as that, I think, contrary to other opinions
o PCM sounds are really well chosen and playing with the PCM Speed ​​knob, it gets cool sounds!
o No panoramic


The Q / P is really excellent, definitely.
Remains to be seen as part of the offer because demands Volca Beats in his studio. I think the use companions to create rhythmic slightly anywhere / anytime, other than with an MPC-like.

o Super nice to work with
o Sons PCM
o Sounds pro, it is not in the gadget
o tactile keys that I feared are excellent
o Effects hash well rendered

o lack of memory slots and the inability to export
o not velocity sensitive (but volumes of shares remain adjustable)
o No AC adapter ...

vivija's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" VERY GOOD"

Korg Volca Beats
midi in
trig out in
10 sounds
Editable as it should
standard sequencer
its small size does not make it a toy!


BAR intuitive as usual Korg manual very clear even a little terse.
Editing sounds is easy and can save mega effect on all or just a sound.


sounds are terrible (as well eh!) tweekable and pitchable for PCM
a bit like having a mini 808 with an adjustable kick (sisi)
What can we do as music? ben is not rock on ...
for the rest it is very versatile


I use it all the time either to complete another BAR BAR as a principal.
I have quite a Drum Machine and that is really effective, small and big sound.
Sometimes she can do things for which it is not made and this is where we realize the power of a well-used effect.
unbeatable price quality in my opinion I also had 522 mfb but it is much less I think.
The choice again? it is clear I am reluctant to buy another story to rape a little inside:-D

gskunk's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" extra simple and effective, and super fun!"

Korg Volca Beats
Music purchased from MJ in Saint-Cere, yesterday!

Everything has been said above. Just missing the Midi out. Thus, instead of being master tempo, he is a slave. Okay.


Simple? Simpler is Bontempi. I'm pretty useless on all electronic devices moultes capabilities and other functions, but this is disconcerting simplicity, and it is EFFECTIVE!

STEP mode, I saw a kind Fruityloop software and user step-by-step fashion that I do not know, is ultimately very practical, which is composed by long-time (16/16), where we live mode play live!. And of course, you can play live on a spirited rhythm being played.
In short, there's plenty to do, and everything is VERY VERY simple and intuitive.

The knobs to modify sounds are small, very small, but I have big fingers and it does not really have a problem.


The sounds are very electro-hip-hop. It is a drum to 135 €.
But overall, I think there are way to many things with and find the sound you want.
To summarize, if it is to have drum sounds for jazz or blues / rock is not good at all, if it is fun enough to make electro rhythms, then this is good.
hence my rating 6.


So I yesterday.
Portability is a real plus, even if the speaker is a bit rotten.
With headphones, it's great.
As mentioned in the previous review, this is the toy that dream to have in the school yard.
I wanted a BAR with me and have a basic rhythm to play the bass / guitar / etc. above. Finally, I find myself playing this BAR, k and only, so it's fun. I would put good 10/10 so I have fun with, but hey, with a little objectivity ... I cut the pear in half, I put 9/10.

And for the price, it should hesitate?
