Nice drum machine, terrible condition. submitted by duedatebeater on February 25, 2015, 8:40pm The Volca Beats is a nice beginner analog drum machine. All analog parts are adjustable, and it has a built in delay (the "stutter") and 8 memory banks for saving patterns. However, both of the units available for checkout have broken LEDs on some of the keys, making it tricky to build patterns as you can't visually see if a part is on or off.

Fun submitted by samanthar on June 18, 2015, 11:19pm It's a lot of fun to play with and make awesome and catchy beats. Take a little bit to understand and get used to playing at first. But in no time you're making some great music.

Great fun - great price submitted by Murtasma on September 18, 2017, 8:21am I have a volca sample and thought I would give the beats a try. Like much of the volca line these are awesome and ton of fun to play with. The unit I had however had a few lights burned out in the step sequencer so it was a challenge to make beats with the unit unfortunately.
