I'm going to make some adjustments for fun, and if you like them we'll keep them. Thanks, looks fun!
Hey there, I want to either make this into one big layout (all three) or split this question off into three separate answers here. Can I combine them, or...? Thanks!

I remixed a few things (and perhaps broke some).


  • Used piano keys
  • Moved stuff around (for better? for worse?)
  • Changed Pitch Bend to be 129 ticks, -64 to +64

Great, nice one. I forgot there were proper piano keys :)

Although there's not much MIDI control for the Volca the XY pads make for some interesting effects. Might try some other combinations.

I pray to Korg that they extend the Midi control a little bit more!

Beats next, hope to get one for Christmas :D
As a Wavedrum user (no MIDI, no data, no backup), I can assure you that praying to Korg is a beautiful spiritual activity ;)
haha, yeah you're right. I realise I'm being woefully naive here :) In fact some of these parts might be purely in the analog circuitry too, so not even possible to control by Midi at all. Still, you can get a close imitation of VCF cutoff freq using EG Intensity. Resonance has no equivalent, but this is tweaked less often, so can be set up at the start of a sequence.

I've made a couple of further changes after playing around with it live.

If it's better in every way than your original, please edit your "question"... ok? THANKS.
