The Volca Drum has a DSP-modelled sound architecture that comprises six parts, each with two layers. Although the sample waveforms are simple sines, saws and high-passed noise, there’s loads of versatility thanks to a waveguide resonator, which models the resonances of drum shells/tubes as well as strings.

As with all Volca’s sequencing is integral and the Volca Drum has a 16-step sequencer with a ‘motion sequence’ function that memorises up to 69 knob operations during real-time recording.
