The Korg Volca FM synthesizer module resembles a compact variant of the amazing DX7 FM synth. While the sound motor is exactly what you thought you would get from a great FM synth. From its clanking metallic tones, ripping leads, deep subsonic basses. The 16-stage sequencer with Movement Arrangement enables you to record knob variations and in addition note information for more sonic activity. Twist your patterns with Warp Active Step, Pattern Chain, or with the Arpeggiator. Whether you perform live or produce electronic music in your studio, there's a lot of sonic potential in the Korg Volca FM.

The FM delivers its unique and qwirky old school sound from metallic and sharp sounds, most notably electric piano and synth bass. The VOLCA FM perfectly reproduces FM synthesis. Its six operators and 32 algorithms provide complete compatibility, and it can even load files in the SYS-EX/SYX format of the Yamaha DX7.

The entire VOLCA range offer you the option to travel with your synth but its whats under the hood that makes it sound valuable. Travelling with any synth is hard work but one that delivers this much versatility and amazing sound reproduction is a must have for any analog lover.
