FabFilter Volcano 3's interface is divided into multiple sections:

FabFilter Volcano 3 - Overview
  • Filter display
    The filter display lets you create up to four different classic, non-linear, self-oscillating filters, which can be either low/high pass, band pass, bell, low/high shelf, notch or all pass. See Filter display.
  • Filter controls
    At the bottom of the display, the filter controls provide full control over all parameters for the currently selected filters. At the left of the filter controls, the routing button selects the routing of the filters.
  • Modulation section
    The modulation section at the bottom shows all modulation sources, visualizing the signal flow and making it easy to set up modulation and create new sources. FabFilter Volcano 3 offers XLFO, envelope generator (EG), envelope follower (EF), MIDI and XY controller or slider sources. See Modulation to get started.
  • High Quality
    The High Quality button controls the oversampling of the internal filter algorithms. See Input/output options.
  • Auto Mute Self-Osc
    When Auto Mute Self-Oscillation is enabled, the possible self-oscillation introduced by the non-linear filters will be muted automatically when the plug-in input becomes silent. See Input/output options.
  • Output options
    On the far right of the bottom bar, you can bypass the entire plug-in and the output button gives access to input/output level and panning controls. See Input/output options.
  • Full Screen mode, resizing and scaling
    The Resize button at the far right of the bottom bar lets you change the interface size and scaling. In addition, click the Full Screen button in the top-right corner of the interface to let Volcano 3 fill the entire screen. See Full Screen mode, resizing and scaling.
  • MIDI learn
    MIDI Learn lets you easily associate any MIDI controller with any plug-in parameter. See MIDI Learn.
  • Presets, undo, A/B, help
    With the preset buttons, you can easily browse through the factory presets or save your own settings so you can re-use them in other songs. The Undo, Redo, A/B and Copy buttons at the top of the plug-in interface enable you to undo your changes and switch between different states of the plug-in. Finally, the Help menu provides access to help and version information. See Loading presets and Undo, redo, A/B switch.
