KORG VOLCA MODULAR // Patch 2 // P3 II


Published on May 24, 2019 LESINDES

"KORG VOLCA MODULAR // Patch 2 // P3 II.
Wiring should be quite clear by the video.

I returned this synthesizer recently -- and that's why:

The MODULAR is a synthesizer with a potential but also with a lot of NOs, unfortunately. I really like the idea of it but it has:

1. unlike all the other Volcas NO Midi input
2. NO seperate gate input -- combined CV/Gate in so special stereo mini jack to 2 mono mini jacks cable needed
3. LPG is very low, only half as loud as LPG1, or my Volca is broken?!
4. Gate or CV output of keyboard and sequencer only in these fiddle sockets.
5. Cables with the soft easily bendable ends feel and are very fiddly. The raw cable ends slide easily out of the sockets even though you only gently touch the cables!
6. The black pot underbeath in front of both Cutoff pots should be the control voltage patched in sockets A + B but even if it is turned fully conterclockwise (= minimum) there is still CV being let out. I don't know if there is a work around for that or if my MODULAR is part of faulty batch??!

From min. 5 - 8 it is clock input is patched as source by mistake but there is still a lot of entertaining tweaking ;-)"
