Device Overview

Name/Version: Volca FM Patch Editor 1.4
Author: mindlesstrx  
Description: This Max For Live device lets you create, edit, import and export patches for the Volca FM and DX7. My goal is to build an editor that really helps you understand what is going on and take advantage of the amazing sound shaping potential of these machines.


* Intuitive UI to show what's actually going on. Algorithm and operator envelopes front and centre. Live visualisation of Level Scaling. Envelope length and fixed frequency value calculations.
* Full compatibility with DX7 Carts. 32 original DX7 presets built in. Load any Cart in Syx format. Check out a whole bunch here.
* Get unique AI generated carts at the touch of a button. From the clever people at This DX7 Cart Does Not Exist.
* Edit, save and transfer to your Synth. Either individual patches or whole Carts.
* Accept MIDI SysEx in from your synth. Volca FM requires a suitable MIDI Out Hack.

The interface isn't perfect but it's close and it's full featured so I may want it for a Volca FM if I get one in 2021/22.

Is it possible to map a midi controller to this device? thanks!

It's not midi-mapable. Reason being that it uses a full SysEx transfer to update params, which cuts sound. So it's not really a performance surface. More for sound design.
