Steve Rochford says:

How does the Akai Rhythm Wolf compare to the Korg Volca series I wonder?

Davide Carbone says:

Good question. Sadly none of the Musikmesse demo videos on youtube give us a clear idea of how it sounds but will try and get our hands on a unit and post asap.

Analogia says:

5 of your top 7 are analogue. How times have changed - again!
