Mastering MONTAGE: An FM-X Exploration Part 2
In Part 2 of this series we will study a Performance made with the same basic setup as in Part 1, but featuring different settings for our 8 Assignable Knob parameters. In Part 1 we turned some knobs and made some observations and speculations about what was being controlled - was it the Modulator or the Carrier that was being altered by a specific Knob parameter?

Mastering MONTAGE: An FM-X Exploration Part 3

Mastering MONTAGE: An FM-X Exploration Part 3
In this chapter, we'll take a look at two more Single PART Performances, each one made from just a simple two Operator stack. These are exactly like the previous examples, with the exception that the Modulator to Carrier tuning Ratio is 1:1 here. It was 2:1 in the previous examples - and this will give us yet another array of timbres we can build - as your ears will tell you. We will apply the same 8 Assign Knob parameters as in the previous examples and, again, show that with just these parameters, we can fashion a very wide variety of initial FM-X waves.
