The ultimate compact FM Synth gets an upgrade
Korg has announced a new version of the compact FM synthesizer, Volca FM.
The next-gen volca fm is a powerful 6-voice, 6-Operator FM synthesizer with all 32 classic algorithms, a 16-step loop sequencer, effects and a powerful arpeggiator that perfectly reproduces the sound of the classic Yamaha DX7 and is completely compatible with SYS-EX patches for the DX7 as well.
Battery (included) or adapter (optional) operated with built-in speakers and a compact and light chassis, the volca fm is the ultimate portable FM solution for all musicians.
This new generation – with double the voices of its predecessor, additional effects, expanded MIDI connectivity, and intuitive interface – is poised to bring unprecedented possibilities to your setup, and revolutionize your studio with new musical ideas.
It has been six years since the first volca fm was released and at first glance there are some subtle changes with the display now blue instead of red alongside the five-pin MIDI DIN being replaced with a TRS MIDI Jack.
The Korg Volca FM 2 will be available in May priced at €189 | £159.
