While n00bstar's tutorials are great, this is one part where they are severely lacking. No info on the wiki as well. I really want to know how can I make nicely sounding FM instruments. Trial and error is fun and all, but I'd rather know what I'm doing ;).


FM really isn't that complicated, especially at the level klystrack works on (i.e. just two operators, nothing like the DX7 etc.). The main difference between sounds is the waveforms used and the multipliers. But I'll try to come up with something!



I wrote a little tutorial about FM synthesis. It's not very comprehensive (I think you need to simply experiment to find all different nuances) but you can download simple instruments you can build on.
