The 16-step sequencer provides new functions such as WARP ACTIVE STEP and PATTERN CHAIN, allowing powerful rhythm patterns with ease.  The Volca FM is also equipped with a lush chorus effect.


    • KORG VOLCA FM FEATURES:

      The appearance of FM (Frequency Modulation) sound generation was a major turning point in the history of synthesizers. Its metallic and sharp sounds, most notably electric piano and synth bass, have been loved by all music creators since 1980 up to the present time. 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.
