I fist thought this was another spoof. It looks uglier than the other Volcas, but it sounds great, and at the end of the day that’s all we want! So excited about this… I’m already scripting the tutorials!!! :D
I have been busy with the return to my lab and office duties. I just published the fourth episode of the Volca Sample Tutorial Series on YouYube, which accompanies my text tutorial here.
After a nice week-long vacation, I just uploaded the third part of the Volca Sample Tutorial Series, dealing with Automation (Motion Sequence) and how it can be used to program melodies in the Volca Sample. As always, there is a YouTube video accompanying this tutorial.
I’ve been preparing a couple of Volca Sample tutorials before going on vacation, and this question came up when presenting the low-pass filter. What kind of filter does the Volca Sample ships with? in order to test it, I used sample 27. This sample is a small snare with not too much bass and quite a lot of white noise. I recorded this sample being played with the filter at 127, 110, 100, 90, 80, 70, 60, 50, 40, 30, 20, 10 and all closed. At first glance, the filter sounds like a 12dB/octave one. Figure 1 shows the wave shape of those samples (A), and their corresponding spectrogram (B).
Just published the Video for the first tutorial on the Volca Sample. :)
