The new Volca Mix from Korg is a four-channel analogue performance mixer equipped with two mono and two stereo input channels (including Aux in), low/high-cut filter per-channel and an analogue stereo expander and compression (including sidechain).

This new mixer will take performances to a new level, while retaining the compact, portable footprint and affordable price point of Korg’s Volca line. In addition to the four channel mixer, the new Volca is equipped with master effects powered by an allanalogue circuitry. New to the line is a specialized sync out jack that acts as a master clock, allowing the user to connect the Volca mix to a variety of Korg gear, thus creating the ability to simultaneously start and stop sequences on multiple synch units.

Volca mix adheres to the internal footprint and is the same size of its predecessors, making it an ideal piece to complete any Volca rig. The new addition also allows for connection to more than just Korg’s Volca line, allowing users to mix and match all sorts of gear with their Volcas, a first in Korg’s line of analogue products. The Volca Mix retails for $169.99.

The Prologue is Korg’s newest multi-voice, multi-timbre, multi-engine polyphonic analogue synthesizer. This fully-programmable, fully-featured professional synth is Korg’s long-awaited full-sized polyphonic analog flagship, equipped with a full 49 or 61 keys, powerful discrete circuitry, a newly developed opensource multi engine, and stunning DSP-based effects. The Prologue is available in either 8 voice (49 key) or 16 voice (61 key) models with multi-timbral zoning options, as well as multi-effects presented with an intuitive interface, improving on its predecessors, plus Korg’s best full-size synth action, also found in Korg’s popular Kronos workstation.

The new prologue is a two-timbre synth that allows two different programs to be played simultaneously. In addition to layer and split, the Prologue provides four voice modes: Poly, Mono, Unison or Chord, allowing the user to freely combine the 16 or 8 voices for performances. The dual effects section includes Mod and Delay/Reverb, each with areas for user-created algorithms. Perhaps the most impressive component to the new model is the user-creatable oscillators and effects, for a never-before-seen level of customization and sonic possibilities. Users can program their own oscillators and effects or download fresh and exciting code created by others to use on their own Prologue.

Both models will be available January 2018 for $1499.99 and $1999.99, respectively.
