Volca Modular Only: Short Song with Six Patches

Published on Feb 18, 2019 Hyper Objeckt

"The Volca Modular is capable of a LOT of different sounds... to help newbies like me learn the ropes, Korg has some patch examples listed on their site. I decided to create a song using only these patches. (links below)

To write this song I started off with a chord progression created by Chord Progression Generator (link below). Then, I used the sequencer on the Volca Modular to record two simple sequences that follow the progression. I also wrote a couple melodies that can be played on the ribbon keys.

This song uses a single synth recorded six times, with a different patch used in each recording. During each recording, I listened to all of the previous recordings while playing. I recorded the percussive patch ("western bongo") first, using the sequencer, to set the tempo. I recorded the most expressive melodic patch ("vibrato") last, to make sure that it fit in with the rest of the song.

Patches used:
Western Bongo

Random Release

Gate Math

Polyrhythmic Duo
