Peter Zéglis recently posted his first effort making a stand that houses his volca FM and volca Beats. Not only does it look exceptionally cool, it’s functional too.
Peter describes how he created his stand:
“Bought some plywood and made a simple design, similar to the one here. I cut the plywood with a jigsaw and screwed the pieces together.”
(If you’re not a member of the Volca Facebook group you may need to request permission to join before being privy to the schematic.
The original schematics referenced above are by Oliver Dowie who created a larger, but still awesome-looking, stand for four Korg volca’s, including the volca Sample.
And if you want to start building your own volca case, it just got a whole lot easier as Oliver has kindly shared the x4 Volca Case schematics via a Dropbox link here:
Oliver has more plans for a future version of the x4 case. He is "going to install power and audio cables into the case, as well as a passive summing mixer." The sync cables will remain outside the case for each re-routing should we change the configuration of volcas. There's more info via the Dropbox download link above.
And if you're looking for a taller x4 volca stand that'll cost you about $15 for the plywood and whatever screws you can gather or find (no, leave those ones in your washing machine, they might be useful), then this 4-tier stand from Ste Holmes will push your buttons, and might give you some ideas for your next case building project:
