A compact analog monophonic bass synthesizer with a 16-step sequencer will allow you to create live and rhythmic bass lines with sound nuances inherent in analog circuitry.

Korg volca bass has three VCOs with sine and square waves which can produce sound either individually or all together, allowing you to create more complex timbres. With the help of pitch controllers you can build a chord, and play various simple techno-dub sequences with atmospheric pads (Boards of Canada). It is important that it has a MIDI input and you can safely plug in the MIDI keyboard, or work with the sequencer sending MIDI data to the synthesizer.

Now let's see about the control section. Here’s a classic set of sound parameter adjustments available: a filter (VCF), a low-frequency oscillator (LFO), a mixer (EG), transpose (OCTAVE), which actually gives a lot of possibilities for sound shaping - from harsh and aggressive acid lines to lighter ones and tranquil timbres. It is worth noting that there’s the SYNC input and output (IN-SYNC-OUT) for synchronization with similar analog devices, such as: Korg volca beats, volca FM, Akai Rhythm Wolf, etc.

And finally, Korg volca bass is a very decent and inexpensive instrument with classical analog sound. It will certainly please those who are fascinated by electronic, experimental, as well as indie music.
