    It would be great if you did something on pads next. =)

    That is a really awesome sound. Not only am I amazed by the depth of your synthesis knowledge, but your willingness to share it.

    thanks again Brian – with all the super complex percussive and other-wordly sounds that can be made with types of various FM synthesis, it's a fresh change to hear something warm and harmonic… just knocked up something quick in Max/MSP that does a similar thing – thanks for the inspiration..
