FM-Lectures
« on: February 10, 2012, 09:14:40 PM »
Hi there ...

I guess this might be a good place to ask - I am pretty new to the topic of fm-synthesis; is there any particular literature, tutorials etc / resources on FM that you can particularly recommend? Any tipps are appreciated :)

Best F

Why not starting by a video  ?

Then, I would suggest this reading :
http://noisesculpture.com/how-to-make-a-noise-frequency-modulation-synthesis
1,5 Euros for the Kindle version...

This link is intersting too:
http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/apr00/articles/synthsecrets.htm

In this onen you need to adapt the example to the PReenFM but is worth reading:
http://the-all.org/tx81z/fm_overview.html

To practice with the PreenFM you can start with AlG1 with IM2 = 0 and IM3 = 0.
Just play with OP1 and OP2 and IM1.
Start modifying the OSC and the enveloppe and try to understand what's happening...
Remember that OP1 is the carrier (the one that create the sound)... and OP2 a "modulator", it affects the spectrum...
Start slowly to add a LFO in the Matrix.
Continue step by step.
