I just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU for this video set. They truly were informational and easy to follow. I just learned a whole bunch in a metter of minutes!
Our first couple videos give you a thorough overview of FM8’s features, browser and presets. Next, it’s time to start creating sounds. It’s fun and fast with the FM Matrix, the core of FM8’s basic buildingblocks. The FM Matrix gives you a single interchange where you can rapidly connect operators and vary modulations between connections.
In Video 3, “FM Basics – Operator View and FM Matrix” you will learn:
Once you’ve set up some operators, it’s time to shape, mold, crunch and smash your sound until it makes the hair on the back of your neck stand on end.
For example, in Video 7, “Arpeggiator” you’ll learn how to create a wild assortment of arpeggiated sounds from hypnotic rhythms to fluid melodies:
Video 10, “Morph Square” walks you through this very unique FM8 feature. The Morph square lets you morph between different parameters you set in each corner block. Sweep your mouse through the squares to create your own unique sounds. You get:
Frequency modulation is not necessarily hard to learn but the process of modulating one frequency with another requires special tools.
FM8 is the Swiss-Army knife of frequency modulation.
It has an answer for every challenge you face.
This special video series will teach you to everything you need to know to make FM8 sing and dance for you.
Sixteen comprehensive videos give you an “over-the-shoulder” view of every facet of this exciting soft synth.
From the opening Overview in video 1 to the final video where you learn how to use FM8 to modulate other audio software, no stone is left unturned.
You’ll cover every inch, every knob and setting so that you fully understand and can harness its awesome power.
FM8 is unique because even casual users can get up and running quickly while expert producers can create massively complex operator and modulation structures.
Either user will benefit from the solid foundation in this high-quality video training.
” I just wanted to thank you for the great videos you put together. I bought the FM8 tutorial and it is so helpful. I have gone from tweaking knobs for no reason to fully understanding how I can attack the sound I want to achieve. I almost feel like a musical genius because of you!
As soon as you have sculpted the preliminary sound, FM8 has 12 new effects with 48 pre-set templates that can bend and twist to create your own signature style. The simple rack layout makes it easy. Here is just a taste of what you will learn in Video 8, “Effects”:
Step-by-step instructions to build a custom guitar sound by combining the right deal, cabinet and tube amp.
It’s hard to believe, but that is just the beginning. This tutorial series leaves no stone unturned. For example:
Sure, there are some videos on YouTube that touch on aspects of FM8.
Some are very good.
But we haven’t found one that goes in-depth like this video training does.
Each of the 16 videos covers one topic related to the FM8 interface, basic settings, presets, envelopes, modulation, arpeggios, effects, morphing, filters, pitch, and key scaling, microtuning and much more.
The Arpeggio video alone is probably worth the cost of the whole course. We break it down step-by-step and cover every inch of creating arpeggiated sounds: patterns, steps, pitch-slides, triggers, semitones, shuffles and one-shots. You could spend days creating tons of new arpeggio sequences with the knowledge you’ll glean from this teaching.
The great thing is that if you get interrupted you can come right back to where you left off and pick up the lesson again.
Our FM8 series is like having a master synth instructor living in your house (but not eating your food or running up the phone bill).
The beauty of FM8 is that it is user-friendly but offers deep, complex sounds for sound artists willing to get their hands dirty.
Our new video series takes you inside this powerful synth, helping you better understand every knob, switch and operator.
