FM Synthesis - Arturia Synclavier V
Published on Apr 15, 2017 100 Things I Do
"I have always like FM Synthesis. Its like smashing atoms together (Sine waves in this case) in a collider and measuring the outcomes. It can be quite unexpected and is quite often more a journey of discovery than a pre-planned destination.
I haven't done a video on sound creation for a while and, not touched on FM Synthesis yet so time to play with the Arturia Synclavier-V.
For many people the Synclavier is a machine of mystery. It was even more expensive than the Fairlight in the 1980's and only the very top Studios and Sound designers of the day could get their hands on them.
Once sampling became the 'thing', the synthesis section of the Synclavier was almost forgotten. This is where Arturia have come in with their take on the Synclavier. While not really an emulation as such of the classic hardware more, a reimagining and look at where it could of gone next with FM sound creation."
