FabFilter Volcano 3



Volcano 3

Erupting with character and vintage quality


FabFilter Volcano 3


Unbeatable filters

Nothing beats a vintage sounding, gritty and creamy cut-off filter. That's exactly what FabFilter Volcano has been known for since its first release in 2005. Today, Volcano 3 continues to deliver the best in creative filtering with new non-linear filter shapes and a completely redesigned interface that is an absolute delight to work with.






The FabFilter Timeless 2 modular delay and Fabfilter Volcano 2 modular filter have been our favourite delay and filter plug-ins for a while now.

Non-linear, vintage filters


Non-linear, vintage filters

Volcano 3 contains four analog-sounding filters with flexible routing, each offering many filter shapes including non-linear bell and shelf filters. Different filter styles offer saturation and self-oscillation at high peak settings, just like classic, vintage filters.


Easy drag-and-drop modulation


Easy drag-and-drop modulation

With all the XLFOs, envelope generators, envelope followers and MIDI sources you will ever need, Volcano 3 offers endless modulation possibilities. Setting up new modulation connections could not be easier: just drag and drop.
