Compatible with AUv3 host apps such as GarageBand, Auria, AUM, Cubasis and n-Track Pro.

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 delivers the best in creative filtering with a completely redesigned innovative interface that is an absolute delight to work with.

The Volcano 3 app filters the microphone input and plays it back in real-time. To use Volcano 3 as a plug-in, you need an AUv3-compatible host app like Auria, AUM or Cubasis. Volcano 3 will appear in the list of Audio Unit extensions for effect plug-ins in the host app.

The best keeps on truckin!

Finally, I can delete Auria as this is now an AU! As always, you’re getting professional sound in a great-looking package. Timeless 3 was crammed with a lot of new features and tiny buttons, but here the simplicity with no clutter gets them back on track (Timeless 3 is of course forgiven since it’s the best delay ever, especially taking into account these were designed with a desktop in mind).

The drive knob is an excellent new feature. If you need any further convincing, go watch Dan Worrall’s YouTube vid on Volcano 3. Wild stuff can be done, and much more easily than you might think.
