The ideal introductory synthesizer, with a simple – yet powerful – polyphonic analog sound engine and loop sequencer.  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.

Until now, the problem with analog synthesizers has been that the pitch would drift over time, or because of changes in temperature. Volca solves this by providing a Self-tuning function that constantly tunes the oscillators. You'll never need to tune during a performance, or wait for the pitch to stabilize after turning the power on.

Korg Volca Keys Includes:

  •  6x AA alkaline batteries (for verifying operation)

Korg Volca Keys Features:

  • Three note true analog synthesis
  • Voicing function lets anyone create sounds easily
  • Delay effect for even more sonic possibilities
  • Simple loop sequencer:
    • Loop sequencer lets you record phases just as you play them
    • Motion Sequencer records knobedits in real time
    • Active Step function and Flux function to add dynamic change to your sequences
  • Convenient functions for tremendous ease ofuse:
    • 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
  • SYNC jack and MIDI IN connector:
    • Allow synchronized performance with multiple units or with your DAW
    • By using the sync jack you can enjoy synchronized playback with multiple volcasor with a monotribe. You can also use the "SyncKontrol" iPhone app to wirelessly control tap tempo, swing settings, and synchronized playback with iOS music apps via WIST.
    • The MIDI IN connector lets you synchronize with other devices, as well as play the Volca from any MIDI keyboard. You can also send note messages from your DAW and use the Volca as an analog sound module.
