Checking out the new firmware from Pajen who has hacked the Korg Volca FM and fixed a bunch of stuff that Korg wouldn’t.
Check out Pajen’s original Reddit post here:
Here are the features:
- Global setting 9 : enable/disable velocity on MIDI notes IN
- Global setting 10: Yamaha compatability/Korg proprietary single patch import/export
- Global setting 11: Patch change notes on/off
