KORG introduced today the VolcaMix, the long desired performance mixer for the Volca series. It features two mono and two stereo input channels including Aux In. For additional control over the sound, it includes a low/high-cut filter per channel and an analogue stereo expander & compression. The latter includes a super handy side-chain feature. Beside the audio features, musicians can sync the other Volca directly in the VolcaMix.
The VolcaMix is a good addition to the Volca Series but I would have liked to see onboard effects like a delay / reverb, more audio inputs & more. I will release an overview video from NAMM about the VolcaMix next week. So stay tuned.
Volca mix is the long-awaited mixer for the volca series. The Volca mix is a four-channel analogue performance mixer that lets you construct a live setup combining multiple Volca units. Volume faders are easy to control, plus crisp-sounding LO/HI CUT filters, and a master chain that radically transforms the sound. In addition to the sync function found on all volcas, there are also DC output connectors that can supply power for up to three volca units. Numerous functions to facilitate your on-stage volca performances have been packed into a high-quality aluminum-paneled body, reminiscent of a high-end DJ mixer. The Volca mix will unlock the maximum potential of the volca series.
