6. Korg Volca Beats
Korg recently released a series of game changing analog music production equipment that is both extremely affordable and portable, and the drum unit of this series is the Volca Beats. A veritable curveball from Korg, the Volca Beats may look like a toy based on its size, but it packs a classic analog punch that would impress most 808/909 purists. Plus, it has a couple of clever built-in effects and can easily be linked up with your other hardware gear, especially the Volca Bass and Keys. We’ve been seeing the Volca Beats retail for around $150, making it the cheapest ticket to analog heaven available.
