We all have been there: Seeing the much feared “Err dcod” on the Korg Volca Sample is a headache, but solvable. So let´s dive in on how to get rid of this nasty Vosyr Error.

Korg Volca Sample Error Quick Fixes

Vosyr Error Code (Err dcod)

This checklist should help you to resolve this most often occurring Vosyr Error.

  • Connect a mini stereo jack is to the “Sync-In”.
  • Only connect the Power supply; remove all other cables
  • Turn off all audio enhancement options in your operating System. This could be Surround options, EQ enhancements or even FXs such as reverb. Some Laptops use “Dolby Audio” make sure this is disabled too.
  • Mute all system sounds
  • Make sure no other program is producing any sound. Just run Vosyr only and have everything else closed. Also web browsers.
  • Set your default Sound Device to 16bit and sample rate to 44.1khz
  • Adjust the output volume of your Sound Device. Vary the setting. We suggest starting at around 50% and turn it up in regular steps. 85% is working good for us.
  • Please make sure your main monitors/speakers are muted.

Once you have found the right volume, you might want to make a note of it for future reuse.

ARE YOU STILL SEEING A VOSYR ERROR?

Take your Volca Sample to a friend with a different soundcard and check if you still get a Vosyr Error.
