Korg Volca FM

FM synthesis is here again, Volca style. Introducing the Korg Volca FM, a full featured 6 operator 3 voice FM synthesizer in the popular Volca format. 

The Volca FM features tons of front panel controls for things like Algorithm (which changes the interactions between the operators), Preset, LFO rate and depth, Attack and Decay (both carrier and modulator), Octave transpose and more. It also has all the features the Volca series is known for like step and motion sequencing, pattern chain, arpeggiator and more.

Connect to other Volcas with the sync in and out or use an external keyboard or clock source with the MIDI in. The architecture of this synth is close enough to the classic DX-7 that it can actually load DX-7 patches via SysEx. The Volca FM can be run in Poly, Unison and Mono modes.
