NAMM Leaks: New KORG Volca Modular & Volca Drum

And the first NAMM 2019 rumor is in. A new KORG Volca Modular "Micro Modular Synthesizer" & Volca Drum "Digital Percussion Synthesizer". Click the pics to explore. Note the mini patch points (ala Tinysizer) on the Volca Modular, and the display on the Volca Drum.

The Volca Modular appears to be a "West Coast" approach with a Woggle modulation source and 2 LPGs or Lowpass Gates.  An LPG is essentially the Buchla version of a Lowpass Filter.  There also appears to be some oscillator wave folding on the left.  Man, this is going to sell like hotcakes.  I want one now.   Digital drums on the Volca Drum with modulation does look interesting as well.


  1. Oh man, if these are real, I want more than I want a MoogOne... hopefully these won't be a 3 or four month wait...

  2. If you don't want to wait for this, you could check out the AE Modular system at there is a great introduction video on Youtube for this:
