Korg Volca FM

Korg's Volca FM is an ultra-compact desktop synthesizer that excels at FM synthesis. The unit features six operators and three voices governed by a plethora of front panel controls. In addition to classic Volca parameter changes‚ such as step sequencing, pattern chaining, and an arpeggiator mode‚ the FM affords control over its Algorithm setting, Preset, LFO, and AD parameters. There is also a MIDI input that enables the unit to be used with an external keyboard controller or synced by an external clock source.
