In true keeping with the Volca series ethos, the Korg Volca FM Synthesizer shines a spotlight on classic synthesis technology so that it can shine once more in the production of modern music. This portable creation station gives you 3 voice polyphony, step sequencing, chorus effects, practical connectivity and more.
BACK TO THE FREQUENCY
FM (frequency modulation) synthesis shaped the sound of the 80’s, noted for its ability to create metallic, sharp sounds that helped invent new polysynth, bass and electric piano emulation for musicians of the day. FM has a new home now in the lifeblood of EDM and the Korg Volca FM synth is here to help you create your own sound.
The Volca FM comes with six operators and 32 algorithms all of which are cross-compatible with classic Yamaha DX7 format. Sound editing with the Volca FM is incredibly easy thanks to the edit knobs so that you can focus on creating sound rather than the details. To get you started, the Volca FM comes complete with a parameter list as a handy reference.
The Korg Volca FM Synth comes complete with a 16-step loop sequencer to create phrases on the fly via the touch panel. The sequencer is also capable of recording real-time knob movements so that you can add time-varying change to the sound.
To mix things up a little... Or a lot, the Volca FM has warp active step, arpeggiator and pattern chain modes to create some truly unconventional performances. Further to this, you can chain 2 Volca FM units together to gain access to larger sequences and complex performances.
Thanks to its small size, built in speaker and ability to be powered from battery or adapter, the Volca FM can be used to create music anywhere either as a standalone unit or connected to your favourite DAW or MIDI controller.
The Korg Volca FM Synth gives young musicians, producers and enthusiasts of today the ability to create new and exciting music using a tried and tested synth engine. Find your inspiration with the Korg Volca FM Synthesizer.
