New Volca FM from NAMM

If you were hoping for a classy new Volca from NAMM, Korg has decided to hit on the last classic piece of synth heritage-- FM synthesis.  No sounds are out yet, but it looks like the Volca FM will be 3 voices and have 6 operators.  The Volca FM features familiar sliders to the left, a standard Volca keyboard, and some basic function knobs.  Perhaps Korg is planning an app like the Sampler's to program as well.  There also appears to be a retro seven segment display at the top left of the unit.  I'll update this post with sounds as they become available.

Update: Interview with the Volca FM creator below.



  1. Planetary Rotating Floor Grinding Machinery
    For standard machining, the grinding wheel motor is operated according to the traditional starting circuit. Motor starts running according to the rated speed, due to the power grid voltage has the certain fluctuation, grinding wheel workpiece friction load changing, will affect the motor speed error and standard wheel motor starting circuit is only one general processing speed, difficult to adapt to different workpiece size require different processing relative linear velocity, so that the workpiece machining precision is difficult to guarantee. Therefore, from the aspects of improving processing quality and processing efficiency, energy saving and so on, the application of frequency conversion speed regulation technology to the grinding machine can achieve satisfactory results.

  2. I was captivated by your storytelling in this post. It made the subject so easy to understand.
