Volsa2 gui

image A simple app for managing Volca Sample 2 files on linux


⚠️ The app is build on top VolSa 2 and will NOT work if you don’t install it correctly, Volsa2 gui assumes volsa2-cli is reachable at /home/$USER/.cargo/bin/

protip: install volsa2-cli with cargo, it’s easier.

This app is “linux only”, it may compiles on windows and macos but as it uses VolSa 2, you can’t do anything with it from window or macos.

The app uses aplay command from alsa to play sounds. It’s not mandatory but necessary if you want to hear your samples from within the app.

Feel free to submit pull requests or suggestions. Be warned, the code is a total mess (not anymore) personnal project.


  1. Power up and USB plug your Volca Sample 2
  2. Launch the app
  3. Click “? list” button to get Volca samples list
  4. Click “? folder” button to select a working directory
  5. Click an item “↧ download” button to save sound from Volca to working directory
  6. Drag one or multiples wav files from your desktop on slots
  7. Click the “⟲ revert” button for reverting your changes
  8. Click the “♪ play” button to listen to the downloaded or new dragged sample
  9. Click the “↥ upload” button to upload sample to volca
  10. Click the “⨯ remove” button to empty a slot on the volca

Don’t try to upload some weird things as PDF files or PNG… Use it at your own risk !
