Ironing is Fun (k) with a Volca bass analogue synth

Published on Jan 20, 2018 Ludwig Kopp

"We all love ironing. Right?
At least I gave it another try using a Volca bass.
Mostly used the three voices polyphonic
and recorded them into a 'Beatboy' (tuner-recorder-drummachine)
I wanted to use its built-in little Drummaschine.
But I had to record it seperately into a DAW 😨
and "iron-up" with the bass recording.
Still has some frowns here and there.

Thanks for checking this out!"

Never thought of using an ironing board as a stand before...

The Beat Boy appears to have been released in 2013 based on the video below. I don't think one has ever been featured on the site before.

"With many rhythm patterns for you to play along with, Beat Boy is a great way to develop your sense of rhythm. It's also fun to casually jam along with the patterns, or use them to refine your riff ideas. With offerings for every genre of rhythm pattern (8-beat, 16-beat, pop, funk, reggae, dance beats, and more), Beat Boy fully supports a wide range of musical styles. The volume of the backing rhythm can be adjusted, so you can set the mix balance accordingly with your guitar, ensuring that you'll be able to clearly hear the rhythm while you jam. The LCD display shows the drums actually being struck, providing a unique visual element. The tempo of each rhythm can be adjusted intuitively by using the tap tempo feature or it can be specified as a precise numeric value for more accurate settings."

"The Korg Beat Boy enables guitarists or bassists to improve their skills quickly and easily with three practice tools plus a tuner, all in a single unit. In addition to the tuner, Beat Boy contains a rhythm machine covering 100 diverse styles, an effects section for sonic variation when jamming along with the rhythms, plus an onboard recorder that allows for 16-bit/44.1 kHz recording. The compact Beat Boy fits easily into the pocket of a gig bag, for practice both at home or on-the-go."
