Kind of lost track of this thread. Need to find ways to keep track of threads that I'm interested in. Maybe that's what the "Push notifications" that the forum keeps bugging me about is for.Native Instruments Kontour
Yes. I like Flow Motion too. And recently got OpZilla. 4 operator FM actually may be the sweetspot for that whole conceptI like waves flow motion -alwaays seem to get something useful from it. Also interested in OpZilla, and the wonderfully named F'em is eagerly awaited by me as well. Have fm8 but dont get on with the interface
Yeah, 4op gets me what I want pretty much. But of course if f em comes out at a good price it will be impossible to resist.Yes. I like Flow Motion too. And recently got OpZilla. 4 operator FM actually may be the sweetspot for that whole concept
I kind of like how Falcon2 does “just” 4 OP FM whereas MSoundFactory has 8 OP. F’ Em is going to be awesome no doubt. 8 OP FM and sample based oscillators in tandem. Conjures up images of old SY99 ads, back when I was totally unable to afford one haha!
Definitely check it out. It's an amazing synth.Kind of lost track of this thread. Need to find ways to keep track of threads that I'm interested in. Maybe that's what the "Push notifications" that the forum keeps bugging me about is for.
Didn't know Kontour was an FM synth. I'll look into it. Man I have Komplete and use about .1% of it
Thanks for all the suggestions. I'm still in the market having not yet found that one that I really love working with. I'm hoping f'em changes that.
Typically, once you go above four the main advantage is you have more flexibility for using oscillators or stacks of them additively (things like organ sounds). Or for transient + sustain sounds where you need two or more unrelated oscillator stacks.I totally believe 8-op could be great, but I don't have enough FM experience to know what situations that more ops would help. Any sound design example where many ops help?
Honestly? I have Falcon2 and its FM implementation is awesome and just fine really. I grew up owning the DX7 so 6OP is what I’m used to, but sonically you can do most things with Ableton Operator, Opzilla, Falcon2 or any other 4OP synth.I've been enjoying falcon FM. I wish it were possible to have something like an additive oscillator designer for each operator, but I also don't mind it's simplicity
Algo looks very cool José! I have been playing with Biotek2 lately, and its modulation options are insane. F ‘Em has the same UI, more or less, so should be fun.Working with Reason's Algo synth today. It's a great synth. Really fun and intuitive and sounds great. Still looking forward to F'em and also will check out MSoundfactory but boy it's taking me a while to get to know that synth.
