Of all the Korg Volca line, the Sample V2 is the only one which can easily make a complete track without any additional hardware or meddling in a DAW. An absolute joy to learn and produce with, this jam box blew away my expectation at the cost. Further, it convinced me to buy another two Volca units for a small modular setup!
When compared to the original, the V2 is a no-brainer. USB is more than welcome, however it is worth noting that the Korg software does NOT work on the current version of Mac OS. I own plenty of computers, so this isn't a barrier for personal use, but Mac users WILL need access to a Windows PC for changing out the samples unless they're running previous versions of Mac OS (Current at time of writing is Big Sur).
For those who are torn between this unit and any other, keep in mind that a perfect loop sine wave sample turns this into a synth. Playing that sine wave at different speeds will change the note. That AND the ability to set a beat and bassline makes this a lowkey DAWbox, perfect as a first piece of hardware OR for kids/teens!
