Korg Volca FM 2 Synthesizer with Sequencer

MFR# VOLCAFM2

Product Description

The ultimate compact FM synth is finally here! The next-gen Korg Volca FM 2is 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.

DOUBLE POWER

With 6 voices (instead of the 3 of its predecessor) the new Volca FM brings a new world of harmonic possibilities to your production.

Now it is possible to play, sequence or arpeggiate complex chords with up to 6 voices in order to bring a unique flavor to your music production. No more running out of voices when sequencing melody, harmony and bass all in one device!

Moreover, the new Volca FM is now velocity sensitive via MIDI, which coupled with its 6 voice polyphony, provides a much more expressive and nuanced playing experience than ever before.

MORE EFFECTS

By popular request, Volca FM includes a lush Reverb effect in addition to the Chorus effect. Each of these two effects can be used and adjusted individually to add the finishing touch to any FM sound you are going for.

EXTERNAL SEQUENCING AND CONNECTIVITY

In addition to MIDI IN the new Volca FM also includes a MIDI OUT (IN/OUT 3.5 mm TRS), making it possible to use the intuitive volca internal sequencer to control other devices through MIDI, making it the perfect addition to your standalone setup. Of course, it also works well with your DAW of choice thanks to note, control, and clock receipt via the MIDI IN.

POWERFUL SEQUENCER AND FUNCTIONS

The internal sequencer offers looping up to 16 steps, allowing you to record your performance on the touch panel keyboard as you play. Up to 16 sequence patterns can be stored in the internal memory.

Volca FM also incorporates a motion sequence function to record in real time all the subtle nuances of your playing and knob movements, letting you add time-varying change to the sound. This is a great way to polish your loops, and also lets you generate highly original live performances.

NEW PROGRAM RANDOMIZATION AND PERFORMANCE ORIENTED FUNCTIONS

In order to spice things up, the new generation of Volca FM includes a brand new program randomizer, letting you find new inspiration through happy accidents and unexpected patches.

Of course, it still incorporates highly acclaimed functions such as the warp active step, pattern chain and an improved arpeggiator, making it easy to create crazy looping rhythms and patterns.

In addition to the active step function that lets you skip steps during a sequence, the Volca FM provides new functions that enable you to generate more irregular rhythms. If the active step is fewer than 16 steps, you can use the warp active step function to compensate so you occupy the same playback time as 16 steps; then by synchronizing the playback with another volca series unit, you can deliberately skew the step timing to generate truly unconventional performances.

Furthermore, the pattern chain function lets you connect multiple sequence patterns for successive playback, making it possible to construct large-scale developments of 32, 64, or even 256 steps by joining up to 16 sequences.

FULL CLASSIC SYS-EX COMPATIBILITY

The Volca FM perfectly reproduces the sound engine of the Yamaha DX7, 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.

SUPER-EASY SOUND EDITING

The Volca FM makes FM sound editing accessible with the MODULATOR/CARRIER super-easy edit knobs – the knob movements are mapped to multiple parameters for sound changes that are easy to understand. FM enthusiasts can also menu dive into full parameter edits. The Volca FM comes accompanied with a Parameter List Guide to assist this.

UNBEATABLE FORM-FACTOR

Following the volca tradition, the new Volca FM comes in a portable, small form factor that you can take anywhere. Totally hands on with plenty of knobs for on-the-fly sound editing, Volca FM runs on 6 AA batteries, has an integrated speaker and at only 360g/12.6oz (without batteries) is perfect for stand-alone use. Furthermore, with SYNC IN-OUT and MIDI IN-OUT connections, it integrates seamlessly with your live rig, production studio and of course any other volca!

SYNTHMATA ONLINE EDITOR

In collaboration with Oscillator Sink, old and new Volca FM users can use the completely free online editor to easily modify their patches; no installation required.

FREE BUNDLE OF MUSIC SOFTWARE

The Volca FM comes with a diverse variety of music software from Izotope including “Ozone Elements” which lets you not only create songs but also master them using AI, “Skoove” which will help you improve your keyboard playing skills, “Reason Lite” DAW software, as well as software synths from KORG and other brands. In other words, the moment you get your hands on this synthesizer you'll have a variety of tools to help you take your music to the next level.

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.
