Can anyone tell which one has a stronger kick (unprocessed)? It's hard to tell through YouTube videos.

Anyone tried both?

Both are very different. However, the Volca bass wins here I think. Those 606 hats and snare are special though.

plain 606 kick is like a clicky metrenome. a modded 606 can have a huge bassy kick BOOOM

EDIT: although even a modded 606 is 808ish, which may or not be 'strong' depending on your opinion.

Thanks all! You mean the volca BEATS right? It's the kick drum between the volca beats and tr-606 that I'm trying to find out about. But I am gathering here that the volca beats kick trumps the 606 kick.

Wow, if this was a certain other forum, people would be trying to shout down the Volca as new trash while espousing the virtues of the 606 Dead Banana

Volca beats bass drum is great; snare and hats are poor, snare sounds like a clipped sample to me (I know it's not -- it just sounds like one). Motion sequence capture is very cool.

On the whole, I'd rather have a 606, though. The Chewbacca Defense

the volca covers some ground that I wished the 606 could cover (without modding)... especially with that kick. If you can come up with enough money to make the 606 even be an option, might as well throw down the extra hundred for a used volca. would make a great pair!

I'll echo others here in saying that when it comes to just the kick the Volca might have the leg up. Having said that I think even the unmodded 606 kick is highly underrated - sure it's not going to do some boomy 808 sub bass, but with some eq or subtle effects it's very musical and useful.

On the whole I far prefer the 606, such a simple but great drum machine.
