Join Matt Thomas (King Unique) as he demystifies one of the most powerful, yet often misunderstood studio tools.. FM Synthesis
FM is a beast to get to grips with.. but here Matt lays down the foundations by giving us a bit of background history on the technology before covering all the most common parameters and functions of FM and finishing with some sound design examples. Using Ableton Live's Operator, all of the learning outcomes and core concepts in this course can be easily applied to any modern FM synth such as FM8, FL’s Sytrus and even Logic's basic EFM1 or Retro synths.
Your world is filled with structures that have stood the test of time. That give character to the cities and landscapes in which they're located. That are visited by millions of people each year. And that capture our wonder for the marvels of engineering innovation and progress.
We all know that beneath the surface of music, beyond the joy or excitement or even heartache that this beautiful language of sound can stir within us, lies the often mysterious realm of music theory—a complex syntax of structural and instrumental resources that composers may draw on.
