Iconic FM Synthesis Returns with Twice as Much to Say

The Volca FM was designed to bring you the iconic sounds of the legendary DX7 synth, through such perfect replication of its capabilities that it can even accept original DX7 patch data. Now, Korg has revamped its dedicated FM synthesis engine to bring you even more possibilities, much to the delight of synthesists around Citymusic. One of the most significant changes comes with Korg doubling the voicing, putting this at a total of six voices for even greater polyphony. Furthermore, the addition of a MIDI Out allows the already robust Volca to control other devices, or work with your DAW of choice. The new Volca FM is now velocity-sensitive via MIDI — this adds a flavor of expressive possibility that will elevate the six operators to even greater heights, maximizing control and nuance in the sonic possibilities of this 16-step sequencer.

DX7 sound — hassle-free

Like its predecessor, the new Volca was designed to perfectly emulate the FM synthesis sound popularized by the iconic Yamaha DX7. Fortunately, Korg had the foresight to make the programming easier. The Volca returns with its built-in 16-step sequencer, featuring a Motion Sequence function to record knob twists and note data. Warp Active Step, Pattern Chain, and the arpeggiator all make their return as well, with the addition of a lush onboard reverb effect to accompany the chorus effect found on the last model. Korg’s new Volca FM provides six voices to function with the original six operators, creating even more latent potential for the studio or the stage. The onboard storage keeps 32 of your favorite sounds on recall, and Korg includes a Parameter List Guide to make programming simple and intuitive.

Decades of FM sound design reimagined

The original DX7 played a big role in shaping the sound of '80s hits like Michael Jackson's "Bad," Kenny Loggins' "Danger Zone," and Tina Turner's "What's Love Got to Do with It," among countless others. New MIDI and programming options provide the opportunity for fresh, compelling applications of the legendary DX7’s sound. In addition to adding a MIDI out, the Volca also notes velocity-sensitivity via MIDI, granting you greater expressive control of the 6-voice engine. A randomization function has also been added, providing an entirely new dimension to sound design and performance that makes full use of the Volca’s sonic faculties, letting you find inspiration in unexpected ways. The new Volca also provides new programming potential to generate irregular rhythms, including skewing step-timing when playback is synched to another Volca.

Sounding out anywhere, with anyone

Korg designed the Volca series with modularity and portability in mind. Korg saw the community response to the original Volca FM and responded in kind, partnering with Oscillator Sink to bring you Synthmata – a completely free resource for users of new and old volca models to easily edit and share patches. Thanks to the onboard speaker and battery option, you get the full power of the Volca’s arsenal whenever you want, making it the prefect tool for capturing inspiration when it strikes. Just like the previous model, the DX7 is fully compatible with the classic SYS-EX/SYX format. Korg also includes a variety of music software with the Volca, including Izotope’s Ozone Elements, Reason Lite (a DAW), and more, helping you take your ideas to new heights, right out of the box!
