This one really dives into the motion controls with some basic saws and square wave sounds.... saw the videos last night, now working thru the article. Really appreciate these deeper dives, the motion control set up is just awesome on this article. Thanks for the content and patches, very very helpful. FM-X is very fun to play with, and with these training wheels, I am finding my exploration, very fun, and effective. Burning some brain cells.

Hello Manny, thanks for your very appreciated contribution.

Were your articles on FM-X rewritten or reorganized?

I'm used to copy interesting articles off web, and saving them in MSWord format. I remember to have savedFM-Xplorations 1-4 and then when I saw there was also a fifth part I saved it too... but I realized that the previous part were different from the files I previolusy saved.
What happened?

They're two different article series with similar names.

Manny's FM-Xplorations Articles 1-3 authored by Manny Fernandez

Mastering Montage: An FM-X Exploration Articles 1-4 by Bad Mister

So save off both and name them differently.

Can't tell you about fifth parts other than the articles for Manny's tutorial (1-3) have multiple youtube videos and the youtube videos are themselves numbered through Part 6. These part numbers (of the youtube videos) do not necessarily match the article numbers. One article can have multiple videos within it.

Thanks Jason!

I'm sure of not having mixed up the articles, because the writing style of Bad Mister is easily recognizable.
I remember that I saved the articles in different directories, in order not to make confusion...

The problem I face is that some links report Error 404, and Manny's FM Exploration articles 1, 2 and 3 seems quite different from the ones I saved in the past. For instance I don't remind of such many YT videos among the text and pictures.

Anyway I'll check them again. and ,if needed, I'll try to sum the informations coming from both.

Now I understood what happened to Manny's article #2... The initial pictures are different, perhaps for a bad assignment. Luckily the text is the same.
