KORG VOLCA MODULAR
Creating new sounds that do not exist in the real world has been an inexhaustible dream since the birth of electronic musical instruments. This dream has evolved and expanded through the development of new and unique music production devices.
The popularity of modular synthesizers around the world has generated a new enthusiasm and interest in the “West Coast” style of synthesis that deviates from traditional synthesis standards.
The compact body of this volca synthesizer features eight modules and 50 connection points. While you learn the basics of a modular synthesizer, you can use the popular features of the volca series of synthesizers to control a unique and different style of analog sounds.
The volca modular is a semi-modular synthesizer consisting of independent analog synthesizer modules, digital effects, and a sequencer. Each of the modules has been carefully selected for independent operation. The modules are internally connected so it is possible to produce sound even before connecting the included pin cables, and the signal path is shown by white lines on the panel. The module connections through a pin cable take priority over the internal connections, bridging them.
It consists of a triangle wave carrier VCO and a modulator. The complex harmonics generated by FM modulation are sent through a wave folder circuit to add additional harmonics, producing a distinctive sound. This module is important for determining the basic character of the modular volca sound.
his section consists of two function generators (envelope). In addition to an AHR generator with attack, sustain and release, there is a rise-fall generator, also known as a slope generator, which not only applies a change of time to the sound but also allows you to connect the output of the trigger with the input, creating a loop, allowing it to be used as a VCO or LFO.
