Seven Thing’s I’ve Learned about FM Synthesis – Revised

I’ve made a revision to the FM synthesis paper, originally posted in 2008.

There is more I would like to do:

  • Create an FM synthesis explorer implemented in Pure Data
  • Use this paper as the basis for a video; I would love to have a multimedia presentation of the example CSound score rendering.
  • Work on the other “What to Learn Next” items listed in the paper itself:
    • Modulating the modulation function (cascade) to create additional side-bands
    • Feedback (self modulation)
    • Summing multiple sinusoidal modulators (Parallel modulators)
    • Non sinusoidal carriers and/or modulators: noise, audio, etc…

Please feel free to use this paper in anyway you see fit, just please make an appropriate citation: (replace italicized text with actual access date.)
