Korg Volca Sample OK GO Edition is what exactly?
The Korg Volca Sample OK GO Edition is a limited edition version of the company’s digital sample sequencer.
It comes with over 100 OK GO samples built-in. That’s the skinny.
The Korg Volca Sample OK GO Edition also has a cool logo design but somehow what’s under the hood seems a bit more interesting.
The 100 samples have all been selected from OK GO’s latest album, “Hungry Ghosts.” What’s cool is that you can edit these iconic sounds any which way you want so for example if you like the bass from one of their hit songs, just combine this with a vocal clip from one of the others.
At the end of the day it’s a way to create your own remixes and/or song versions from the 100 supplied samples used on the album, using the simple step based sequencer on the Korg Volca Sample OK GO Edition.
About the Korg Volca Sample OK GO Edition
The Korg Volca Sample OK GO Edition is still the same Volca Sample machine, just with the OK GO insignia and the cool 100 samples. This means you get the same multi-touch keyboard and 16-step sequencer and it runs off 6 AA batteries. It’s part of an entire series of Korg Volca instruments that include the Volca Keys, Volca bass and Volca Beats.
Some sales blurb from OK GO and Korg...
“This limited OK GO edition of Korg Volca Sample comes loaded with sounds from the album Hungry Ghosts. These are the sounds we used to make our album, and we encourage you to make your own music with them. The volca sample was designed by Tatsuya Takahashi and his team at Korg in Tokyo, and Taku Sakaguchi designed the graphics for this special edition of the instrument. We hope you find inspiration. Play!” – Damian Kulash / OK GO
OK GO is a great band that has embraced and shown amazing creativity in a diverse range of outputs that’s not limited to music (videos, performances, design, collaboration, …). Wouldn’t it be great if they released not just songs but an instrument? Wouldn’t it be great if anyone could use this instrument to create OK GO remixes? And wouldn’t they make a really cool looking volca if they redesigned it? These thoughts were the impetus for this project. Now you can enjoy the finished result: the volca sample OK GO edition.-Tatsuya Takahashi / KORG
