3-Voice 6-Operator.

Wow!

I might just get this one. Love the DX7 color scheme.
Save some money on a Montage.

Okay. It's from Korg, it's called FM and not VPM, and it has the colours of a DX7. That is so wierd! We have entered the new FM era since the release of Reface DX. This is great.

Korg's becoming known as "The synth company that listens."

Only just noticed "Non Working Prototype" on the text but looking forward to this, should be super fun.

I'm going to go out on a limb and assume this thing will have some kind of external iOS programmer app, like the volca sample.

Could you elaborate how you got to this conclusion?

You mean the non-working prototype part, or the whole thing a fake? I hope you're wrong either way :D

It does seem strange that it's not called Volca VPM -- as many of us were predicting/requesting...

hmm .. there was that fake roland poiysynth posted the other day, too.

Would be disappointing if so.

I hope this is real. slightly knobbly 6-op fm for £99 would be excellent.

3 voices is not enough but 6 op is awesome!

Better than the Reface DX out the gate.

dammit when are they going to make something with more than 8 sequence memory? That is my ONLY real gripe about Volcas.

It would be in line with Korg's current diversifying ethos, and the instagram isn't also immediately identifiable as a photoshop/ lift of another synth, as with that Roland fraud of a couple of days ago. There's no reason for Korg *not* to be doing something like this at the moment though, particularly.

The design in terms of combination of colors looks amateurish, so maybe this is just a foto on instagram. But, if it's a true foto then yeah WOW, these are exciting news. A digital synthesizer based on Fm synthesis, in a so portable and affordable package would be amazing.

I hope its real, will be my first volca if so.

I don't mind the 3-note polyphony, I'd buy it mainly as a cheap, portable FM bass machine. I love FM bass in techno!
