With its 27 'mini keys' and a recognisable synth design structure you'll be be able to generate a diverse range of true analogue synth sounds. With the 3 oscillators you can dial in a huge range of tones, thanks to the 6-way simple knob that controls how they are combined: Poly, Unison, Octave, Fifth, Unison Ring, or Poly Ring, go from simple chords to detune lead lines to far out metallic sounds with ring modulation! In addition, 12 onboard controllers give you real time hands on control, allowing you to tweak your sound to fit your needs!
Added sonic possibilities can be had with with delay effect, an indispensable effect that is essential for creating those classic spacey synth tones. Time, Feedback and Tempo controls again give you hands on control for some real time fun!

Simply create phrases that come to mind you use the overdub function to create more complex loops. Added control comes courtesy of the Motion Sequence that allows you to record knobs movements, letting you produce enhanced loops. Handily 8 sequences can stored for later recall.

You can also use the Volca Keys as a sound expander - simply connect a midi controller into the MIDI IN and you'll have access those sounds direct from your controller keyboard, or use it with your favourite DAW.
