“My project aims to demystify FM synthesis and to offer a new approach to its programming.
After analysing various FM synthesizers and their interface, I identified two major problems:
- The difficulty of understanding how they work
- The complexity of sound exploration
My project offers two objects to remedy these problems: a guide, based on texts in FM Theory & Applications, which enables the user to understand FM synthesis in a theoretical way, and a synthesizer that enables the user to explore the basics of synthesis with a more hands-on approach, thanks to an interface that offers all the controls without “menu diving”. These two objects provide the user with an ideal introduction to electronic music.”
