Volca FM- technical issues.

Postby ian » Wed Jan 03, 2018 2:35 am

Hello, My Volca Fm is suddenly no longer polyphonic, the arp does not work, and the sequencer is not functioning at all. Anyone else have this issue? Any suggestions? Plugging in a Arturia keystep via midi I can play polyphonically and play arps. So that is something at least. I did a factory reset,still no dice. Running it off a korg adaptor ( for an MS20, which I believe is the same power adaptor, the two other volca's I have work with it fine.) no difference with batteries or wall wart. Any constructive input would be helpful, thank you.

A few things you could try:

To check if POLY is on - use FUNC + POLY (Key #1)

To check if ARP is on - use FUNC + ARP ON/OFF (Key #5)

for the sequencer - just clear it with Func + Erase

see how that goes :)

Thanks for the response.
Yes, I have tried all of those things, as well as doing a factory reset ( one of the power-up functions) and the problems persist. I read that Korg has an update available for the FM, considering seeing if that may help. First, wondering if anyone else was trouble shooting similar issues.
