Korg Volca FM Synthesizer Module at a Glance:

  • Easier to program than a DX7
  • Tap into three decades of sound design
  • Portable creativity

Easier to program than a DX7

The classic FM synthesizer that electronic musicians know and love is the Yamaha DX7, and it's just as famous for being difficult to program as it is for its iconic sound. The Korg Volca FM packs the same sound engine based around six operators, and its streamlined control set makes it much easier to program your own sounds from scratch. From percussion and effects to Reese bass and more, you can dial in classic FM synth sounds and save 32 of your favorites for instant recall.

Tap into three decades of sound design

The original DX7 played a big role in shaping the sound of the '80s Michael Jackson's "Bad," Kenny Loggins' "Danger Zone," and Tina Turner's "What's Love Got to Do with It." It says a lot that over 30 years later diehard DX7 fans are still creating new sounds and sonic textures with the original DX7. The Korg Volca FM allows you to load DX7 patches via SYS-EX/SYS files - there are countless patches available online, giving you an abundance of sounds to play with.

Portable creativity

Like the rest of the Volca series, Korg's Volca FM can run off six AA batteries for truly portable operation. And its compact size makes it easy to integrate with the rest of your electronic gear. A sync cable is included to easily synchronize tempo with other Volca modules.

Korg Volca FM Synthesizer Module Features:

  • Portable FM synthesizer module
  • DX7-style synth engine with 6 operators and 32 algorithms
  • Supports original DX7 patch data via SYS-EX/SYS files
  • Save 32 of your own sounds and 16 sequence patterns

  • Tweak your patterns on the fly with Motion Sequence, Active Step, Warp Active Step, and Pattern Chain controls
  • Truly portable, with built-in speaker and 6 x AA battery operation

It's never been easier to get into FM synthesis than with the Korg Volca FM synth module.
