Korg Volca FM

Korg's Volca FM is an ultra-compact desktop synthesizer that excels at FM synthesis. The unit features six operators and three voices governed by a plethora of front panel controls. In addition to classic Volca parameter changes—such as step sequencing, pattern chaining, and an arpeggiator mode—the FM 3 affords control over its Algorithm setting, Preset, LFO, and AD parameters. There is also a MIDI in that enables the unit to be used with an external keyboard controller or synced by an external clock source.
