FM81S FM TONE GENERATOR
Sine shaper based, DX-like 'FM' Synth. New approach to FM synthesis...
...new at least in Reaktor.
The basic idea was to realise the equation
e = A*sin(a*t + I * sin(b*t))
as it was given by John M. Chowning ,the 'inventor' of FM synthesis, for a frequency-modulated wave 'e'.
The sound differs from usual Reaktor-FM-synths ( the only exeption I know of is 'sy-fm') for the synthesis method is rather 'phase modulation' than 'frequency modulation'. The difference should be audible when more than two operators are stacked or when feedback is applied.
4 Operator FM synthesis
Keyboard level scaling
Keyboard time scaling
Ratio coarse control with special non-integer ratios + ratio fine control
Oscillator linear detune
Pitch Envelope Generator
This synth does not offer ultimate flexibility, but is - hopefully - easy to program.
It does not offer the rich sound of an 6-OP-FM-Synth, but some interesting sounds are possible.
The snapshots are not meant as a set of fully featured presets, there are some repetitions,
some sounds are not finished, and some are most probably useless. I leave it to you to alter or to delete those ;-).
Unfortunately quite CPU hungry.
Well, you guess it, this .ins was inspired by a certain piece of hardware. ;-)
