Welcome to Bad Gear, the show about the world's most hated audio tools. Today we are going to talk about the Korg Volca Drum. Is the third drum sound specialist of the Volca series (after the Beats and Kick) a worthy successor to the legendary Korg Electribe ER-1 drum machine? Can it step out of the Shadow of the Electribe and when will Korg release the long overdue Drumlogue?
