Folders BEATS1–BEATS8 contain 16 samples each, while BEATS9 and BEATS10 each have 11 instruments (only the Volca Beats' own instruments were used while recording). Each instrument's name is prefixed by its note number in the traditional MIDI Drum Map (with a few deviations). The WAV files also have a NOTE tag, which allows you to map the samples across the keyboard (or any other traditionally-mapped controller) and use that mapping with any hardware or software which supports multisamples — such as samplers by 1010Music.
The folders contain full drum kits. The names of the original instruments of the Volca Beats are written in brackets; additional elements have been created by tweaking and layering various sounds of the drum machine.
