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.

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? Now we will follow through and see where those Control Assignments were made and how they are applied by the settings. Included at the bottom of this article download the MONTAGE Connect (P3.X7B) file for the tutorial, PERFORMANCE: P3

Mastering MONTAGE: An FM-X Exploration Part 1

Mastering MONTAGE: An FM-X Exploration Part 1
In this short quick series, we'll take a look at a number of simple two Operator FM-X stacks and discuss how you can begin to learn to program source waves using FM-X intuitively, by ear - without any heavy math. Please download the example Performance (P4.X7B). This is a MONTAGE Connect bulk file. It is assumed you are making the adjustments and hearing the results yourself. One of the best ways to gain an understanding of the FM-X engine is to experiment with a few key parameters and work with them until you're comfortable with what they do and exactly when they do it.
