FM Synth

Hi all,

Anyone know of a good tutorial on the FM synth?

Not clear on what the numbers are.

Thanks in advance


Don't know of any real tutorial out there for FM, but here are some basics.

Each number is an operator. The rest of the knobs control the relationships of the carrier and modulator pairs that make up each operator, and how they are connected (the algorithm). You'll notice when the operators move position drastically, that's an algorithm change,

OK thanks.

Try this one @chair666:

There’s also a couple of accompanying pages, a critique of the synth and a chart of all the values the parameters can have.

Forgot who made this, maybe @raigan? Anyway, excellent resource.

Thanks for the replies. And yes that is an excellent resource.



Here’s a great general purposes FM synthesis tutorial:
