Upgrading from Volcano 1 or 2 to Volcano 3 is safe and easy: installing Volcano 3 will not
replace or delete the previous versions of the plug-in. All versions will co-exist and can be
used at the same time. This ensures that you can open old songs that use Volcano 1 or 2 without
Volcano 1/2 presets
All presets created with Volcano 1 or 2 can be loaded in Volcano 3, although they may
sound slightly different due to changes in the new plug-in version. If you upgraded from
version 1 or 2 to the new version, your original presets will be accessible via the V1/V2
Preset Folders item in the preset menu. See also Loading presets.
Replacing a Volcano 1 or 2 instance by Volcano 3
If you are working on a song and want to replace a Volcano version 1 or 2 instance with the
new Volcano 3, we advise you to do the following:
First, save the current setting of the original Volcano instance as a FabFilter preset
in the Volcano 1 or 2 preset folder.
Then, remove the original Volcano instance and add Volcano 3 in its place.
Finally, load the V1/V2 preset that you just created into Volcano 3 via the Preset Folder
submenu in the preset menu.
Because the feature set of Volcano 3 has changed fundamentally, any automation data that has
been written by a Volcano 1 or 2 instance cannot be read correctly by Volcano 3.
