A must for every Volca Fm owner!

Korg Volca FM - The Expert Guide is a very comprehensive, yet easy to follow book about all features of the Volca FM synth. Beginners can start right away with the quick start guide, while more advanced users find all parameters explained in detail. I can highly recommend buying this book. It's the manual, Korg should've written and more.
