OVERVIEW

True-analog loop synthesizer with polyphonic analog sound engine and loop sequencer.

Following in the footsteps of the monotron, monotribe, and MS-20 Mini analog synthesizers, Korg announces the Volca series. Volca is a new lineup of EDM production tools. These powerful and fun-to-use true-analog devices deliver a diverse array of fat sounds that can be obtained only from an analog synthesizer. Each is also equipped with sequencing/recording capabilities for intuitively generating performances. Multiple volcas can be used in tandem via the vintage-style sync in/out, and with your favorite DAW software or MIDI keyboard via MIDI In. Battery operation and built-in speakers mean that you can conveniently play anywhere and anytime. These are the next-generation analog synthesizers, bringing you the ultimate sounds and grooves with ease and depth. Whether used together or by themselves, the volca series is poised to inject true analog power into any performance or studio setup!

Volca Keys is a long-awaited synthesizer that adds a new chapter to the long and storied history of Korg's analog synthesizers. This 27-key analog lead synth delivers unbelievably powerful sound in a compact body. Starting with a filter section that uses the circuitry of the legendary miniKORG700S (1974), it delivers astonishing sound that takes full advantage of Korg's half-century of know-how in circuit design.

With a simple structure that includes delay effect and a sequencer, it's also an ideal choice for a first analog synth. It offers the richly expressive sounds that are distinctive of analog, providing the enjoyment of simple yet deep sound-creation. The possibilities are endless; you can use the three oscillators to play chords, use them in unison with detune to produce solid lead lines, or apply ring modulation to create far-out metallic sounds.

FEATURES
  • Three note true analogue synthesis
  • Voicing function lets anyone create sounds easily
  • Delay effect for even more sonic possibilitiesLoop sequencer lets you record phases just as you play them
  • Motion Sequencer records knob edits in real time
  • Active Step function and Flux function to add dynamic change to your sequences
  • Self-tuning function for constant, stable pitch
  • Sync In and Out allows clock sync of multiple instruments from the volca Series as well as Korg's Monotribe
  • Compact size, battery-powered operation, and built-in speaker for enjoyment anywhere

            Comments about Korg Volca Keys Analog Synth Machine:

            I am a first time synth buyer. Every since I started to listen to The Birthday Massacre, my love and curiosity of the synthesizer has continually grown. I began to want to pick one up. Problem is that there is just so much to learn in regards to them. Not to mention how expensive they can be... Until now.

            The Volca Keys is a fantastic first synth! You can create so many sounds with it it's unbelievable! Now don't mistake me here. I do not know a lot about all the bells and whistles, and terminology of synthesizers, nor do I pretend I'm an expert. I'm just really enthusiastic about them. There's not much I can complain about with this particular synthesizer. The price is fantastic. It's easy to use and experiment with. It has definitely made me more familiar with all of the functions,and the way each part affects the overall sound, etc.Portability is awesome!
            If there is one thing that I wish was different about this, it would be the capability of layering sequences, and playing on top of running patterns. As far as I know, it can't do either of those. All in all this is a marvelous synth. In fact I like it so much so that I'm saving up to buy the bass and beats as well. I think that would take my passion to learn more about synthesizers and my ability to create the type of music I want to to a whole other level.
            So, If you're a first time synthesizer buyer, I would highly recommend getting this. You will not be disappointed with what this synth will teach you!

              Comments about Korg Volca Keys Analog Synth Machine:

              Great synth in the spirit of the VCS3, reminiscent of the sounds from Dark Side of the Moon, Who's Next, even "Frankenstein".

              The integrated keyboard is a little small for my fingers but it's easy enough to put together a sequence. For fancier playing, just plug it into a MIDI keyboard.

              Responds well to external sequencers and MIDI controllers.

              A very tasty synth for the price.

              Comments about Korg Volca Keys Analog Synth Machine:

              This device mimics the synths of long ago. Love tweaking the knobs for sounds the world has never heard. The midi interface works fine. Only wish there was a line out in addition to the headphone jack, which requires a pre-amp to the mixer. The sequencer records knob tweaks as well.

                It's a great, fun box with many sounds. It's super fun and locks to an external clock very well. Starts and stops with the sequencer on time, every time. Really cool.
