Korg 770 vs Volca Bass - Synthesizer Filter Comparison
Quick comparison of the Volca Bass filter to the Korg 770 lowpass filter. Different settings for the peak are explored.
The Volca Bass takes its filter design from the diode ring filter of the 700/700S miniKorg synths of the 70's. The Korg 770 has the identical filter design except replaces matched diodes for a diode array. Do the filters sound the same? To me they sound darn close, but you be the judge.
However the oscillators themselves sound different to me. The Volca Bass has a lot more bottom end than the 770, listen with headphones or a nice set of powered monitors.
