Hey guys,

Thought this may be of interest to some of you.

I've created a tutorial blog for FM8 similar to my other website for Massive (massivesynth.com)

Tutorials for FM8

http://www.fm8tutorials.com/

I'll be working on filling it up over the coming months, there's a fair few tutorials up already, 30 sounds for subscribers (free) and a short 5 part course to get to grips with the synth (also free).

Hope it's off use!

Steve

Seems like you have a lot up there already. The site looks nice too, a nice clean theme.
I think that FM8 gets too little love because people find it oddly confusing, so hopefully you can clear that up for them.

For some reason me and FM7 & 8 just clicked and I thankfully never actually needed a tutorial - which is odd because I hated the DX7 when it came out.

I suggest you do an Absynth tutorial site next. People love that thing but it seems hardly anyone understands how it works!

For some reason FM8 really does not make sense to many people. I love it. Still wish we could get midi out to trigger gear and other synths. I love the arp. Really fun to sound like daft punk.

NI has moved it's focus to samplebanks, machine, and traktor

I'd love for someone to put up a reaktor site. That would be one thing i'd pay money to learn from beginner to intermediate, then intermediate to advanced, instead of just learning from deconstruction methods

Hey

Here's a few FM8 tutorials from the website.

We're working on making tutorials in video - but for now they are written tutorials with screen grabs. Tonko has done a great job with them - they are pretty indepth.

A new tutorial up today creating an acid lead sound.

This is not really an emulation of sounds made on Roland TB-303 because in FM8 this involves a bit different technique. We will use the modulator in combination with a highly resonant filter to modulate our carrier operator.

This will produce some very interesting effects which are suitable also for many other sounds not just 303 like acid synth lines.
