Surprisingly fun
Earl Langoustine, 24.02.2020
Got this synth over the holidays expecting weird wonky bleeps and bloops, but was pleasantly surprised at how musical this little synth can be. Patching it is fun, once you learn how to read the front panel. The manual is thorough and intuitive.

But what really makes the Korg Modular a joy is the sequencer - dialing up a little sequence that plays in your chosen key, and then using all the randomization features can get you into far-out musical territory. Great when coupled with a nice delay/reverb pedal. Even does microtuning - perfect for Aphex heads who want to get their Richard D. Jam on!

Extremely addictive
A6-Andromeda, 29.03.2019
I bought it reluctantly because, after watching several videos on YouTube, the sound didn't convince me that much. I also thought that, due to its small size, it was logical to assume its possibilities would be limited; perhaps the set of modules might be too short.
Well, after several days without being able to stop playing with it, I must say that I couldn't be more wrong, in both cases. The palette of timbres and behaviors is endless, being key the arithmetic module, auto-modulations, and having two lowpass gates. The stochastic sequencer over pentatonic scales with microtonal variations is a killer combo.
PROS: Incredibly deep instrument for such a tiny size, many uniquely beautiful, classic and weird sounds to design/discover.
CONS: The spatial module isn't the most useful thing you'll come across, although it's as stereo as it can be. Tiny size and cables makes bad ergonomics, so you can end up with back pain or something.

my first synth
SoundManJohn, 06.10.2019
I liked the idea of working with a modular synth without making a huge investment. I have used this for a week now going through all the tutorials I can find. For a small self-contained unit there seem to be many options and the sound quality is quite good. And the best part is, it's fun. Korg has definitely found a niche with these portable units and it will be hard to resist building a playable setup without getting more Volcas.
