I pre-ordered all three for $359 from JRRShop via their bundle. The individual boxes are $135.

For the bundle price, I can probably still sell the one(s) I don't want for $100 and lose out less than $20 each.

does this mean that i will need a cv interface to use this devices in combination with ableton live?
or do they sync also via the midi in?
They have midi and they also sync-in socket to sync them on their own.

in the specs it is stated that they sync via 1/8 mini jack
nothing else specified

Just youtube them. You can clearly see on the front panel a midi socket and a specific sync socket so you can sync the three boxes.

yep! i've seen the videos.
what i want to do, is to sync them with my other hardware (so not via the specific sync socket)
in order to do that, i need to sync them via the midi in.

there is no midi out, so they should be able to sync via the midi in?
only as slave?
but, as far as i have read, it is not stated in the specs.

the "music toys" korg produced in the last times, like: kaossillator, monotron, monotribe etc
tend to have no midi sync possibilities
that's why i'm wondering what happens with the volcas...

The MIDI IN connector lets you synchronize with other devices, as well as play the volca from any MIDI keyboard. You can also send note messages from your DAW and use the volca as an analog sound module.
From the section commom features in the [url]ttp://korg.com/volcaseries[/url]

thats your question?

Hope that helps :)
