FM synthesis is an essential technique for electronic musicians that can be used to create all types of lead, bass, and other synth sounds.
Here, Brian demonstrates the basic principles of FM synthesis using FM8.

I never really understood FM Synthesis, but this helped a lot. Thanks!
great stuff keep it going
That would be great! I'm sure this video helped a lot of people, but personally, I'd wish for something more advanced on FM.
Hey, thank you for posting this!I'd really like to learn more about synthesis … I love your tutorials, but I can't learn it all this way Do you have any books that you recommend?
Hmm I can't think of any books off of the top of my head, but there are some great synthesis articles that used to be in Sound On Sound magazine. Also some of the university sites have a lot of information. This site http://www.sfu.ca/~truax/fmtut.html provides some of the theoretical background on FM and tons of useful info about Carrier to Modulator ratio's.
thanks! Definitely will carry on
awesome! Glad to hear it
Curtis Roads – The Computer Music Tutorial is a mammoth text on all things computer music. All different types of synthesis methods are discussed within..
