Melville, NY – – November 4, 2015 – – Korg releases the limited edition OK GO volca sample as the latest addition to Korg’s line of volca series analog synthesizers and sequencers. This volca sample is packed with 100 carefully selected audio samples from “Hungry Ghosts,” the latest album from OK GO – – one of the most playful and tech-savvy bands of the 21st century. Signature guitar, bass, drum, synthesizer, and vocal phrases from the Grammy award-winning band are built in as preloaded samples to inspire artists to produce clever and melodic music.

Korg is proud to announce this collaboration with the energetic and quirky band known for their unique sounds of off-kilter guitars, power pop sensibilities and homemade videos that have drawn over 200 million views on YouTube.  Users can freely edit the numerous iconic sounds and arrange to create original versions of the band’s infectious tunes, mix and match content to create remixes or create entirely original sample-based music using the simple step-based recording layout of the volca sample.

Graphics have been designed by the band’s official artist Taku Sakaguchi, and limited to the first 3,000 units produced is a numbered certificate with the entire band’s signature included. “This limited edition OK GO volca sample comes loaded with sounds we hope encourage users to make their own fun and original music with them,” shared Damian Kulash of OK GO. “We hope users find inspiration!”

The OK GO volca sample joins the original volca sample, volca keys, volca bass and volca beats, Korg’s series of compact hardware with the powerful sound engine of an analog synth and an intuitive and easy-to-use sequencer. Battery operation and a built-in speaker mean users can enjoy serious sound. In addition to real time performance with the sequencer, volcas can be used for music production as an analog plug-in for DAW.

The OK GO volca sample will be available early November for $159.99. For more information visit www.korg.com/volca_sample_okgo_edition/
