Look at the Korg Volca Bass analog synthesizer like it’s an ultra-affordable 303 bassline synth – except it’s actually pretty easy to program! Whether you’re producing EDM, hip-hop, or any type of electronic music really, the fat sound of true analog bass can’t be denied. The Volca Bass gives you three oscillators to create huge bass sounds, and a 16-step sequencer to create your grooves. Best of all you’ve got MIDI and Sync I/O, making it easy to integrate the Korg Volca Bass with the rest of your gear.

303-style bass lines in an ultra-affordable compact synth
While there are as many genres of electronic music as there are stars in the sky, they’ve all been influenced at some point by the iconic 303 bassline synthesizer. Think drippy, squelchy, resonant bass and wild glides. You get the same fat analog vibe with the Volca Bass, but it’s much easier to program than the notorious 303 (and costs a whole lot less too!).
Ready for both live performance and studio production
The compact Volca Bass is surprisingly versatile – connect a MIDI controller and play it live, arrange your own patterns and manipulate them on the fly, or connect it to an external sequencer. The sound is huge, punchy, and powerful, and you’ll love the vibe it adds to your music.
Truly portable, and easy to integrate with other gear
With its compact size and optional AC or battery power, the Korg Volca Bass is truly a go-anywhere groove box. Best of all, it’s got the right connections to interface with any of your gear. It’s got a MIDI input so you can control it via any MIDI sequencer, and it even has Sync I/O so it can play in time with Korg’s Monotribe and Monotron analog synthesizers. Or simply create whatever bass synth sounds you like, then sample them for sequencing elsewhere.
