Chowning and further on KYMA

Post by Roland Kuit » Thu Feb 11, 2016 12:21 am

A 3 part lecture about extended techniques for the (DX7) FM algorithms.
It will be easy to 'translate' stuff to the Modular IV.

Thoughts on FM: beyond the algorithms part I
By Roland Kuit

In the late 70’s I found myself exploring FM techniques on the ARP 2600 the analogue way. Creating rich textures and, by using spring reverberation, blurring the spectrum, I found FM an extremely useful technique for creating impressive sonic structures. The aim of this writing is to find useful extensions of the FM technique in Kyma.

Thanks for maintaining these educational posts here, Roland. It's great to see the cross pollination across different systems, and also have the occasional comparison between systems for the same algorithm.

YW @ JK,

Always a nice process 'converting' patches between platforms.

You will find all 32 algorithms at the link above, bottom of the page.
Next month part 2.
