Stop digging that hole.

As I previously stated the 0-Coast is a small semi-modular synth and off the top of my head I can name a few more, Anywhere Haven Tinysizer, Foltek Mescaline, Pittsburgh Modular Lifeforms SV-1 and Microvolt 3900, and Korg MS-20 Mini

It's a reference to the Makenoise/Grant Richter Wogglebug random voltage module

I must live on the same planet as you because that mock up is nothing like a Neutron. If anything, it reminds me more of the Moog Werkstatt.

Yup more similar to the werkstatt, but more sophisticated ... I'm guessing.. because I can't make heads or tails of that volca

If anything, it looks more like a Bastl Kastle.

I've never heard the term skips for aussies..?, and wogs is most deffo offensive, you'll get your head taken off if you call someone that, there are some very rare circumstances where you could use that word but it's totally racist/offensive now with the new world order of PC'ness.

As I already mentioned, Moog Werkstatt.

Also, the Neutron and a Volca are not even remotely the same scale of "small", as it's roughly the size of two Volcas positioned side-by-side. The Neutron is closer in size to the only slightly larger MS-20M desktop module, so really by your definition of similar concept, Korg did it first. cooge

The legend is underneath. Maybe this is clearer:

1 Scale

2 Tonic

Micro tuning:
3 Edit
4 Clear
Octave:
5 Down
6 Up
Randomize:
7 Note
8 Act. Step.
9 Micro-Tuning
Gate:
10 Long
(This likely lets you pick between short and long notes, which would be how long the Low Pass Gates (LPGs) stay open)

Mode:
11 Bounce
12 Stoch.
("Stoch." likely stands for Stochastic, in other words random. I'm guessing "Bounce" and "Stoch." let you control how the sequence plays out, the first making the sequence go back and forth, the later will play the sequence in a random order)

Motion:
13 On / Off
14 Clear
Clear:
15 Act. Step
16 All

Ok, I didn't see it that way, there still are a few things I wasn't familiar with, thanks for clarifying!kfhkh

well done, korg, keep them affordable and nice Volcas coming bumpkinkfhkh I am so happy that Korg delivers these nice products for the sole purpose of charity :)

The source of this is a Reddit post, so I won’t believe it until it’s confirmed elsewhere. Here’s an archive of the original rumour: Korg modular volca coming soon : volcas

The neutron has low pass gate envelope? I'm pretty sure it doesn't.

I think he means for a couple hundred bucks, and there have been others, most use these cheap foolish loose wire connectors too because they are cheap.. Beringer nuetron uses real connectors because they are a evil empire corporation that makes a million of each model.

mfb was first if it's about affordable and compact semi modular synths.. mfb microzwerg anyone? released about 7 or 8 years ago. when uli was still into cloning mackie mixers and guitar pedals. credit where credit belongs to.

Sure it does, it's between the source of uncertainty and the complex harmonic generator.

the story with mackie was 20 years ago ...
by the way, mackie has lost and today has sunk into meaninglessness ..

1mm patchbay were synonymous of other manufacturers

What are the other things you are still not familiar with?

Kja 21st December 2018 04:09 PM

I love West coast stuff so I'm on this like white on rice, the drum machine too.. I want both, this baby had two function generators and two lpg's.. and I bet it's gonna sound good too knowing Korg. Probably not as wild as a O-coast or microvolt though but cool to pair with them.

that was neither "affordable" in terms of ~300$ gear, nor have anyware instruments synths been small, even if the tinysizer has "tiny" in its name^^ I had the semtex xl, what a tank :lol:

because semtex is an explosive

Volcas are nice, but I think it could be nice if Korg could make something with sliders, because using sliders in the volca format could be more convenient and functional. A lot of people have huge fingers, so they can’t handle those tiny knobs…
