The affordable miniature kickdrum generator will be in stores next month

Korg has added another new model to its volca range of miniature analogue synthesizers. As the name suggests, volca kick is built specifically to create kickdrum sounds.

In Korg's own words: "The volca kick is an analog kick generator that's made for sound design. An analog circuit based on the powerful resonant sound of the original MS-20 filter, it lets you create a wide range of kick sounds only possible through analog circuitry, ranging from solid kick drums to crisp kick basses. The 16-step sequencer, a distinctive feature of the volca, now has a new Touch FX feature that lets you control an effect instantly, giving you even more live performance potential."

The volca kick joins an ever-growing list of volca products that already includes volca keys, volca bass, volca sample and volca FM. It'll be available from October, priced at $160 (£120 approx).

Below, you can watch a video of the volca beats in action, or for more information, see the product page on Korg's own website.
