FabFilter Volcano 3 Filter Effect Plug-in Upgrade - Electronic Delivery

Unbeatable filter effect plug-in with vintage grit and creamy cut-off now featuring drag-and-drop modulation matrix, 16-step XLFOs, and envelope generators - upgrade from Volcano 1 or 2
MFR# 1035-1977

Product Description

Further expanding the sound palette the FabFilter Volcano 3 Filter Effect Plug-in Upgrade enhances the all-in-one filter solution with more character including non-linear bell, shelf, notch, and all-pass filters, improved modulation options, high-quality mode, and much more.


Upgrading from Volcano 1 or 2 to Volcano 3 is safe and easy: installing Volcano 3 will not replace or delete the previous versions of the plug-in. All versions will co-exist and can be used at the same time. This ensures that you can open old songs that use Volcano 1 or 2 without problems.


The first thing you will notice when you open Volcano 3 is the brand-new look. The completely redesigned interface makes Volcano 3 more pleasant and efficient to work with.


All presets created with Volcano 1 or 2 can be loaded in Volcano 3, although they may sound slightly different due to changes in the new plug-in version. If you upgraded from version 1 or 2 to the new version, your original presets will be accessible via the V1/V2 Preset Folders item in the preset menu. See also Loading presets.


If you are working on a song and want to replace a Volcano version 1 or 2 instance with the new Volcano 3, do the following:

  • First, save the current setting of the original Volcano instance as a FabFilter preset in the Volcano 1 or 2 preset folder
  • Then, remove the original Volcano instance and add Volcano 3 in its place
  • Finally, load the V1/V2 preset that you just created into Volcano 3 via the Preset Folder submenu in the preset menu


Because the feature set of Volcano 3 has changed fundamentally, any automation data that has been written by a Volcano 1 or 2 instance cannot be read correctly by Volcano 3.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
