editor's review





FM8 is a user friendly yet very powerful frequency modulation synthesizer that integrates over 960 presets, an intuitive graphical user interface featuring an FM matrix, and a formidable audio engine for rendering high quality sounds.

Well structured audio controller for dealing with frequency modulation synthesis

FM8 comes with a frequency modulation matrix that enables you to effortlessly connect two operators : the modulator and the carrier signals. In addition, FM8 enables you to adjust the modulation parameters: since you can easily visualize the FM connections, making the necessary modifications is fairly straightforward.

Both operators and envelopes have a “Overview” page where you can adjust different parameters, while being able to view the values of the other operators and envelopes. Of course, in “Overview” mode you will see only the most important parameters: to fine-tune the sound further you can easily access the detailed editing page.
