What is volca sample?
The volca sample is a sample sequencer that lets you edit and sequence up to 100 sampled sounds in real-time for commanding live performances. It’s powerful on its own or as an addition to any existing volca setup. The volca sample lets you recapture the excitement of the first generation of samplers where any sound - vocals, spoken words, ambient sound, or glitches – can be used for your creations!

Desperately needs an update

Both the sample itself and this app desperately need updated. It’s just way too much work to get samples into the machine, and the idea that you can only do this using an app significantly limits the lifespan of the Volca Sample.
1. Allow files to be imported to the app using Dropbox, OneDrive, iCloud folders, etc. Korg has this ability already built in to the Gadget’s Bilbao and Abu Dhabi modules, so it shouldn’t be that hard to add.
2. Allow samples to be imported directly to the Volca Sample from a computer
3. Add the ability to edit the in and out point of recorded samples in the app
4. Update the Volca Sample firmware to allow direct recording into a memory slot without a computer or iOS device.

Could you try v1.2.0 or later? We supported Files.app integration so that you could import samples from local storage, iCloud, Dropbox, Google Drive if you've activated

I have about fifteen pieces of Korg gear and all of their apps.
I have updated my Korg devices from my iOS devices.
I did it with the Monotribe and Monologue ( of course with the Monologue I had to do further updates from my Mac but for firmware-easy. Even on the Volca-firmware update easy as pie.

I deleted about ten samples to add some of my own. No dice- error message. Volume up volume down different cords- iPhone and different iPads—- get an error every time. So I thought at least I could just restore the factory settings. NOPE.
THIS APP IS CRAP. If my laptop gives me the same issues then the Volca sample will be sent back. This is an easy process!
Beeps, blips, and noise and your samples should be on there.

Update -finally got it to work but only on iPhone. Using it on iPads is useless which makes no sense to me because it’s the same audio files that they play into the device but for some reason only easy iPhone works.

I would change my review but since the app is so darn slow I will keep it at the same low rating.
In my 10 years of owning apps, beta testing a boatload of audio apps, and owning ALL of Korg’s apps -they have never responded to any of my emails regarding any of their apps. So lately I am in a “why bother“ stage with their iOS apps.
So obviously if you have the Volca sampler it is a decent app to have but be ready to be frustrated.

Sorry for the issue.
But we could not reproduce the issue you reported. The system relies on the device settings so it's hard to shoot your problem..

Could you try the other 3rd parties apps? They might works.

Not completely trash

...but mostly.

Audio Share or “open in” support would be very much appreciated and incredibly useful. As it stands, this app is only somewhat useful for two things... live mic recordings and system updates.

Live mix recordings can be edited some, but not a whole lot. It’s basically a simplistic means to provide your Korg Volca Sample with the ability to record live sounds (in a VERY round about way).

Sadly, sound from any of your other iOS apps will require you to jump through a whole bunch of seemingly unnecessary hoops. If you go into his with extremely low expectations, then this isn’t too terrible.
