The leak ist true. KORG has today announced for Superbooth 2019 the Volca Nubass, a new analog Synthesizer that is based on KORG’s new-generation vacuum tube. The technology is implemented into the oscillator, sub-oscillator, and even drive circuits. With this, it’s possible to create very warm tones and rich distortions that only a tube can provide.
On top, it features a new nubass lowpass filter, a 16-step sequencer with classic Volca features including motion recording, transpose, accent, slide, and randomize.
News From May 6, 2019
Only 4 more sleeps until the Superbooth starts in Berlin. In addition to the many small Synthesizer companies, KORG will probably present a new product. A few minutes ago, a picture of the KORG Volca Nubass appeared, a new bass Synthesizer based on the Nutube vacuum tube technology.
Whether this leak is true, I can not say but the photo looks again as good as the leak of the new Volcas for the NAMM 2019.
Leaked Features From The Picture
- vacuum tube oscillator (VTO) with two waveforms
- sub oscillator with saturation
- voltage controlled filter with cutoff and peak control
- attack/decay envelope
- LFO with two waveforms
- sequencer with motion recording
- drive effect
- MIDI In
- sync in/out
- headphone out
The truth of this leak is reinforced by the current Twitter posts from KORG. They have announced in two separate posts that they will show on May 10 at a meeting an unreleased product. Plus, at this event, there will only Volcas. All this sounds like a confirmation in my opinion.
KORG Volca nubass will be available in August 2019 for a price of $199.99 USD.
