Korg continues to expand its Volca series of sub-$200 synths. Today it announced the Volca Kick, a drum machine with a 16 step sequencer and analog oscillator. To keep it all in the family, it links up to the rest of the Volca line and minilogue, electribe and SQ-1 step sequencer.

The tiny synth uses the oscillating filter from the MS-20 to create percussion sounds for its kick, tom and bass hits. Plus, in addition to being able to string up to 16 of the 16 step sequences together, the synth has one-touch variations and time divisions so you can make on-the-fly changes to a pattern.

Like the rest of the Volca line, the Kick includes MIDI in and Korg's Audio Sync connection. Audio is handled either by the built-in speaker or headphone mini jack. And for folks on the go, the synth can be powered by batteries or an AC adaptor.

The new Volca Kick will set you back $160 and is available in October.
