KORG Volca FM First Sounds

This video, via Masaki Takada, features sounds of the new Korg Volca FM synthesizer

In the video, the Korg Volca FM is processed with the Eventide Space Reverb.

Here’s what Korg has to say about the Volca FM:

The volca fm perfectly reproduces the sound engine of the classic digital synthesizer that made the world aware of 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 volca fm makes FM sound editing accessible with the MODULATOR/CARRIER super-easy edit knobs – the knob movements are mapped to multiple parameters for sound changes that are easy to understand. FM enthusiasts can also menu dive into full parameter edits. The volca fm comes accompanied with a Parameter List Guide to assist this.

Along with a perfect reproduction of the sound engine, the volca fm is also equipped with a lush chorus effect to add depth to your sounds and further expand its sound-creating potential.

Pricing and Availability

The street price for the Korg Volca FM is expected to be about US $160. Availability is to be announced.

      1. … and i think that synthtopia and other synth sites might want to reconsider wether we really need yet another demonstration of the eventide space with an arbitrary sound source

  1. FM enthusiasts can also menu dive into full parameter edits? I’m in. I would like to know how they did the note patterns. On board sequencer?

  2. concerns about the disparity in price between the volca and pedal aside, this is a GREAT demo, those patches and sequences are dreamy
