VOLCA DIGITAL SAMPLE SEQUENCER
Intuitive and ultra-powerful volca sequencer
A fun to use sequencer with superb improvisatory potential
The step sequencer is designed for ease of editing and to allow parts to be inserted or removed "on the fly." Use the 16 step keys to enter notes intuitively while maintaining visual confirmation of the timing of the notes in a measure. You can also record your performance in real time.
Up to ten of the sequence patterns you create can be stored in internal memory.
Motion sequencer records and plays back up to 11 parameters
The motion sequence function records your knob movements, letting you add time-varying change to the sound. This is a great way to polish your loops, and also lets you generate highly original live performances. The volca sample is able to record all knob movements that are related to sound editing. This allows sophisticated editing that had been impossible for hardware samplers of this category.
Parameters that can be used with Motion Sequence
・ Start Point (Playback start location)
・ Length (Playback length)
・ Hi Cut (Cutoff frequency)
・ Speed (Playback speed)
・ Pitch EG Int (Pitch EG depth)
・ Pitch EG Attack (Pitch EG attack time)
・ Pitch EG Decay (Pitch EG Decay time)
・ Amp Level

・ Amp EG Decay (Amp EG Decay time)
Active Step and Step Jump functions let you insert and remove steps
The Active Step function lets you skip steps during the sequence, and the Step Jump function lets you instantly play just the step that you're pressing. From short-loop effects to unimaginably irregular rhythms, these functions allow dynamic performances as though you were performing the sequence itself.
Swing function generates grooves
The Swing function adjusts the swing playback position, generating the distinctive groove of dance music styles such as hip-hop. As appropriate for the character of your song, you can shift between rushing and dragging the beat.
