1. How To Learn Yamaha DX7 Synthesizer – Tutorial: Fundamentals of FM Synthesis, Algorithm

"This is a foundation level tutorial and it’s the first Yamaha DX7 & FM synthesis tutorial from the FM synthesis tutorial series. This how to learn tutorial gives you an overview of the most important aspect of the Yamaha DX7 and FM synthesis, Algorithm.

Algorithm plays a critical role in the FM synthesis sound design. It determines how all Operators (oscillator with envelop generator) interact with one another. The DX7 algorithm offers both frequency modulation synthesis as well as additive synthesis. Having 32 options of different algorithm, the DX7 FM synthesis offers greater versatility of sonic creation."

2. How to learn Yamaha DX7 Synthesizer - Tutorial: FM Synthesis Sound Design Tub Bells Part 1

"I will use the famous Tub Bells patch as an example for the FM sound design process. I will take you through the DX7 FM parameters, including Algorithm, Feedback and Oscillator. The reason why I picked the famous Tub Bells patch is that it is one of my favourite (and I'm sure a lot of people like the iconic DX7 sound), and it is one of the easiest patch to explain how the FM synthesis works to beginners and new comers to the DX7 and FM synthesis. Initially I will focus on analysing the famous Tub Bells patch, then I will going into improving the famous sound using Priority Parameters."

3. How to learn Yamaha DX7 Synthesizer - Tutorial: FM Synthesis Sound Design Tub Bells Part 2

"This is a third tutorial of the FM synthesis tutorial series that I’m planning. As I need to cater for a wider audience, I decided to create this ‘how to’ tutorial series from the very beginning, starting from the very basics of the FM synthesis and Yamaha DX7 synthesizer."

4. How to learn Yamaha DX7 Synthesizer - Tutorial: FM synthesis Sound Design Tub Bells Part 3

"This is a fourth tutorial of the FM synthesis tutorial series that I’m planning. As I need to cater for a wider audience, I decided to create this ‘how to’ tutorial series from the very beginning, starting from the very basics of the FM synthesis and Yamaha DX7 synthesizer.

Continuing on from the Part 2, I will revise the DX7 envelop generator as it can be complex and confusing for people new to the FM synthesis. In a nutshell, the DX7 has basically 6 advanced ADSR type envelops. After the revision, I will introduce more Priority Parameters such as Keyboard Rate Scaling, Output Level and Key Velocity Sensitivity. You will learn how the famous Tub Bells patch was created using the FM sound design process."
