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.


  • 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

Korg just raised the bar on everyone!

Comments about Korg Volca Keys Analog Synth Machine:

After waiting what seemed like 6 months to finally get my hands on one, I got my Korg Volca Keys about 2 weeks ago. It's packaged in a kind-of hard to open box (sealed rather tightly and secure). After opening, putting in the included batteries (YES!) and using the attached cable to sync it with my Korg Monotribe, the two hours of non-stop fun began. This IS NOT A TOY. It is small, yes...but even with its simple and fairly straightforward synthesis-its a great little analogue synth that has a built-in delay unit (which is also tempo-syncable). It saves up to 8 sequences (with knob tweaks!) and as a person with big hands, all the knobs are fairly easy to grab. Within about 30 minutes, I felt like I had a great handle on this box. Korg is doing what Roland should have done-reaching back into the archives and create something a bit new, with some older analogue architecture. At $149 you get a midi and sync capable machine with a nice step sequencer...and if you haven't listened to it-youtube is your friend. I will not describe its sound here, just to say that it is expressive enough that I'm able to make it sound like me. So, buy one...before you can't. Because the Volca series is about as exciting as it gets for under $200.

Comments about Korg Volca Keys Analog Synth Machine:

I'm a huge analog fan, and find that Korg has been pumping out a lot of super-fun equipment lately that is very affordable for the home studio songwriter/analog gear geek. I've only begun to explore the awesomeness of this gadget- I've been madly in love with my Volca Beats unit and was really psyched to get this companion piece which syncs up nicely with other members of the Volca series to create some sweet beats on the fly. My only concern is that I'm totally hooked. Must. Buy. More. Volcas... P.S. If you're on the fence about this or any of the other Volca units, there are a bunch of vids on YouTube of people doing some super-cool stuff with the entire line.

Comments about Korg Volca Keys Analog Synth Machine:

I was deeply impressed by the monotron series and I was fired up when korg engineered these improvenents on those rad ideas. those who love analog synths know that keeping the machines in tune is a task of Hercules- but volca keys, I understand, has a feature that keeps it in tune. the miniature keys are slightly less difficult to use than the teeny ribbon controller of the monotrons, but the small keys on the console are still smurf-like in nature. HOWEVER, one can link a midi keyboard to this bad boy and generate these cool sounds with far greater ease- korg was ingenious and kind for doing this. three note polyphony (well, sorta), awesome blip sounds and an intuitive sequencer are assets- the tiny keys, the limited scope of sounds and many incompatibilities with some midi controllers are liabilities. not every sound is a gem- my lady friend mistook one of my crations for the smoke alarm. I love my volca- we play keyboards due to our love of diverse sounds and the volca keys is an excellent component in any rig.
