Volca FM - An Overview

killer features! Building on the enormous success of the original Volca FM, this updated model doubles the voices of its predecessor, adds additional effects, and offers MIDI velocity sensitivity with expanded connectivity.

Korg - Volca FM

6-voice power with velocity sensitivityWith 6 voices, Volca FM makes it possible to play, sequence or arpeggiate complex chords to bring a unique flavour to your music production. The new Volca FM is even velocity sensitive via MIDI, which coupled with its 6-voice polyphony, provides an expressive and nuanced playing experience

Korg - Volca FM

In-built effectsIn addition to chorus, the new Volca FM includes a shimmering new reverb. This classic combination of effects can be adjusted individually to bring a finishing touch to both legendary and new FM sounds.

Korg - Volca FM

Easy sound creationFM sound editing is accessible with Volca FM thanks to the modulator/carrier knobs – control movements are mapped to multiple parameters for sound changes that are easy to understand. FM enthusiasts can even dive into full parameter edits – Volca FM even comes with a Parameter List Guide to help.

'Dynamic and Original Live Performances'

Korg - Volca FM

Sequencing and connectivityIn addition to MIDI in, the new Volca FM includes a MIDI out via a TRS jack, making it possible to use the internal sequencer to control other devices through MIDI.

With a 16-step looping sequencer, you can record performances directly as you play. Furthermore, 16 sequence patterns can be stored in the internal memory and pattern chain allows you to link multiple patterns together to create a song.

Expanding the creative possibilities further, Volca FM incorporates motion sequencing making it possible to capture subtle nuances of playing and control changes in real time. Not only is this a great way to polish and fine-tune loops, it also allows for dynamic and original live performances

Korg - Volca FM

Program randomisation and performance functionsAlongside the highly acclaimed warp active step, pattern chain, and enhanced arpeggiator functions, the next generation of Volca FM includes a program randomiser – a perfect way to explore sonic possibilities and find inspiration.

In addition to the active step function which lets you skip steps during a sequence, Volca FM provides new features to generate more complex rhythms. If you’re working with fewer than 16 steps, the warp active step function compensates and occupies the same playback time as 16 steps; then by synchronizing the playback with another Volca models, you can deliberately skew the step timing to generate truly original performances.

Volca FM even allows you to go beyond 16-step patterns. Join multiple sequence patterns for successive playback to construct large-scale developments of 32, 64, or even 256 steps!
