Korg Volca Keys is a 27-key analog lead synth that delivers unbelievably powerful sound in a compact body. Starting with a filter section that uses the circuitry of the legendary miniKORG700S from 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.

SYNC jack and MIDI in connector allow synchronized performances
By using the audio sync jack you can enjoy synchronized playback with multiple Volcas or with a growing list of other Korg instruments including Monologue, Minilogue, Electribe, Electribe S, SQ-1 and Monotribe. You can also use Korg's 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 Volca as an analog sound module.
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.
With its compact size, battery operation and built-in speaker, it's easy to take Volca anywhere and perform any time.
