Of potential interest to site visitors and users of the suite of Xen-Arts microtonal synthesis VSTi tools, is a new FM synthesis tutorial from our partner in all things Xen, Sevish, aka, Sean Archibald. If you have been following the music and software development activities on this blog, you will instantly recognize his singular vision and music composition work on various independently produced solo and collaborative recording projects, as well as his stellar sound-design contributions on some of the Xen-Arts VSTi patch-banks; most recently among them his patches included in the updated IVOR2 factory bank.
Check out the article on the Sevish blog and watch the tutorial video on YouTube:
In this insightful tutorial, Sevish pulls back the veils of arcane sonic mystery that for many typically surround FM synthesis techniques, and shows us some of his methods for getting the distinctive timbres heard on his records made over the past many years, a number of which actually feature Xen-Arts instruments.
Awesome work. I would personally love to see more tutorials of this nature.
