Engadget Review

The Volca Modular expands Korg’s series of portable, entry-level synths to interesting new territory. It makes the experimental world of West Coast and modular synthesis affordable to the masses. Its embrace of the unpredictable can be fun, but it may also frustrate someone looking for more traditional synth sounds.

It may be slightly fiddly and a little complicated, but if you’re willing to give in to its experimental ethos, the Volca Modular is endless fun.
