I took some time last weekend to do the MIDI out mod on the Korg Volca Beats. It took some research but I had some help from a couple of websites. It was a lot of fun to make, although it ended up being a little on sloppy side cramping everything back in the unit once I got done.
The video pretty much says it all. I had some help from a couple of blog posts from KOMA Elektronik and Vartan Aivazian at Utopian Labs. Check out the gallery below for some shots in greater detail:
I’m already using the mod in my setup. What’s next? I may do the snare mod, but the sloppy under the hood work is pointing me to more practice before I get to some precise type modding work. It’s always an adventure!
