The KORG volca bass does get a bad rep from time to time reading forums on the internet etc. People have asked me on several occasions, dude, why do you have two of them, whats the point? Well, for me the point is that it's a great synth, and it sounds awesome considering the low price and with this video I would like to showcase what can be done with some nice FX.

I have really never done a solo jam with the volca bass before, I wanted to make it as massive as possible.. and as you can see I brought the big guns. :D Strymon BlueSky, Earthquaker devices space spiral, and the Keeley engineering caverns. :D Not really what You would call a fair competition to any synth out there.. but come on, let's have some fun :D

Not in the picture, there is a tc. electronics ditto X2 loopers on which I start a pre-recorded phrase 1/4 into the track (also recorded on the volca bass) .. so it's NOT playing on the sequencer :)

Also, there is an audible click at the end where I turn on the caverns shimmer reverb to end the jam... but hey, it's live right and stuff like that is expected?

Gear used: KORG volca bass, through the X2 looper, into the space spiral with some modulated delay.. into the caverns on a timed delay slighly off to the EQD to give a stereo feel.. then into the blue sky which has a modulated room reverb with a loooong decay.

Cheers, hope you like it!"
