Much better. I actually have a rough idea of what I am doing now :lol: (flippin noobs eh?)
I still get a bit freaked out with them but they are yet to be the main part of anything I have made.
I obvs still need them but, they are pretty subtle and not in ya face :)

I am going to make some teshno next I think and will be using to Volca for it. I really want to attempt to dubby stuff :)

Are you liking life with the Volca? Do you want the other 2 yet? :)

:D It's alright the little bugger - pretty fierce. The only thing I definitely don't like is the little pathetic speaker. What's the point!?

I don't fancy the others tbh. I have access to a decent drum machine and pads so no need. I am saving for a bass station 2 or a korg mini MS20 now. Only £500 needed. :shock: Oh yes and I need a new controller!

Be awesome if there was someone on NSB that could offer phenomenal discounts on gear!! ;)

you volca heads need to get this plug:

http://www.rv0.be/sync-unit/legacy/sync-unit-ac

you put the plugin in your DAW, send it to a seperate pair of outputs (you will need minimum 4 outputs for this)

then connect the outputs to the sync input on the volca

then i think you might have to play a note into the sync plug

then your korg will start and stop with the DAW

It started and stopped with the DAW anyway via midi in tammer. Just have to remember to disable internal play on volca as well so doesn't play as well as the midi you're sending to it.

move over volcas, time for the akai WOLF (!)

200 quid?????

come back akai ,all is forgiven
"Musikmesse 2014: Following in the wake of the Korg Volcas and Roland's Aira range, Akai is the latest brand to get in on the vintage-inspired groovebox action with the announcement of the Rhythm Wolf – an analogue unit combining a five-voice drum machine and single-ocsillator bass synth.

The drum machine section of the Rhythm Wolf comprises kick, snare, metallic percussion, and open and closed hi-hat sounds, all of which are tuneable. The bass synth, meanwhile, can be switched between saw and square waveshapes, and features a filter with resonance control and a basic envelope shaper. Akai describes Rhythm Wolf as having an "authentic analog design that references classic rhythm machines and synthesizers" - no prizes for guessing which instruments the company is alluding to.

The whole unit is built around a 32-step sequencer, and also features six MPC pads for live performance. There's also a 'Howl' distortion circuit for adding a bit of dirt to the sounds. Additionally, the Rhythm Wolf features a USB MIDI connection and has both MIDI and gate in and out ports, so can be triggered via a DAW or external hardware. It packs a swing control on its front panel, and the unit also appears to have a built-in preset bank.

Arguably the most interesting aspect of the Rhythm Wolf, however, is its price. At an estimated street price of $199, the unit comes in at slightly cheaper than the combined price of the Volca Beats and Bass, and cheaper than either the Roland TR-8 or TB-3.

The Rhythm Wolf is due to arrive summer 2014. Visit Akai Professional for more details.

Rhythm Wolf highlights (from the official press release)
5-voice analog drum machine and synth—authentic analog design that references classic rhythm machines and synthesizers
Legendary analog drum sounds—kick, snare, open & closed hi-hat, and metallic percussion
Synth-bass module—selectable square or sawtooth wave with classic filter design for warm, deep basses and squelchy leads.
Onboard 32-step sequencer—classic drum machine workflow for quickly laying down grooves and melodies
Six genuine MPC pads—responsive controls for sequencing and finger drumming
Howl knob—custom distortion circuit for additional sound design
USB-MIDI and MIDI In/Out—flexible MIDI connectivity for easy integration into modern studios
Gate Trigger—triggering via modular synths, vintage sequencers, or external sound sources
Independent audio outputs—dedicated outputs for the drum machine and synth-bass module for precise mixing"
