Powerful 27-key analog lead synth that generates unbelievably powerful sound from its compact body.
Filter section that uses the circuitry of the legendary miniKORG700S (1974)
Delay effect and a sequencer.
Ideal beginner's instrument for learning sound creation, also an ideal choice as a first analog synth.
Simple yet deep sound-creation.
Simple three-voice polyphonic analog synthesizer
3VCO, 1VCF, 1VCA, 1LFO, and 1EG,
Use the three oscillators to play chords, use them in unison with detune to produce solid lead lines, or apply ring modulation, create far-out metallic sounds.
Voicing function lets anyone create sounds easily
The Voicing function makes it easy to specify how the three oscillators will be combined. Simply turn the knob to choose one of six combinations: Poly, Unison, Octave, Fifth, Unison Ring, or Poly Ring. Without complicating the volca's simple design, this feature makes it easy to obtain a wide variety of sounds.
Delay effect for even more sonic possibilities
The volca keys contains a delay effect that's indispensable for creating spacey synthesizer sounds.
This effect also reproduces the pitch change that occurs when you change the delay time on an analog tape echo unit.
Simple loop sequencer
Loop sequencer with overdub lets you record phrases just as you play them
16-step loop sequencer with up to 16 steps, record your performance on the touch panel keyboard as you play.
Overdub recording to produce complex loops that could not be played individually.
(8) sequence patterns can be stored in internal memory.
Use the Motion Sequence function to meticulously craft your loops
Motion Sequence function lets you record knob movements
Add dynamic changes to your sequences with the Active Step and Flux functions
Active Step lets you skip a step during sequence playback, create short loop or unexpectedly irregular rhythms, allowing dynamic performances.
Flex function, let's you play back the phrase without quantizing the steps, producing a loop with a distinctive sense of groove.
