Aggressive sounds that stand up to the drums, fat sounds that support the rhythm, funky sounds that generate a groove: Korg Volca Bass is an analog groovebox that has what you need for a wide range of basslines.
Although simple in structure, the analog sound engine has an unmistakable presence with subtle nuances that cannot be reproduced by a digital simulation; it's a great choice for acid house and many other styles of music. The step sequencer distilled from the Electribe is not only visually intuitive, it's also a powerful way to generate 'free form' bass loops that will stimulate your inspiration.

SYNC jack and MIDI in connector allow synchronized performances
By using the audio sync jack you can enjoy synchronized playback with multiple Volcas or with a growing list of other Korg instruments including Monologue, Minilogue, Electribe, Electribe S, SQ-1 and Monotribe. You can also use Korg's SyncKontrol iPhone app to wirelessly control tap tempo, swing settings and synchronized playback with iOS music apps via WIST.
The MIDI in connector lets you synchronize with other devices as well as play Volca from any MIDI keyboard. You can also send note messages from your DAW and use Volca as an analog sound module.
Until now, the problem with analog synthesizers has been that the pitch would drift over time or because of changes in temperature. Volca solves this by providing a self-tuning function that constantly tunes the oscillators. You'll never need to tune during a performance or wait for the pitch to stabilize after turning the power on.
Compact size, battery-powered operation and built-in speaker
