NFM is a virtual FM synthesizer. FM synthesizers are not my favourite ones… for example I really don’t like the DX7 which is certainly the most famous of them. So, when I launched NFM the first time, I tried to forget my personal taste and start to play. I load some preset and was very surprised by the generated sound. Cool, very cool… After, I started to use the Operator (s).I understood nothing and was a little bit disappointed. The day after, I read the user manual, and tried to use the Operators again. Hallelujah! Awesome!
This is what I read:
“FM Algorithm's interface is inspired by Native Instrument's FM8 FM Matrix. It allows you to wire up modulators and carriers in any way you like. Every operator can be a modulator, a carrier, or both simultaneously. Each modulator can modulate any number of carriers. For example, operator C can modulate D, E and F and send feedback to A and B operators. Tapping on an operator button (labeled A, B, C etc.) switches the active operator view.”
When you look at the NFM main screen, on the left side, the FM algorithms, on the right side, the Operators. With a swipe of your finger on rectangle shape you will be able to send the output signal of an Operators to another one, with another swipe you will send the feedback of an Operator to another… it’s really great, and turns NFM into a real versatile synthesizer. You can play a percussive sound and turn it into a big pad. You can play a Pad and add noises to it. What you like... The second view of MFN is dedicated to the FX and the Output section. Check out the tutorial to see all the parameters available,. Watch the video demo to understand how it works. In summary NFM is a very powerful FM synthesizer which can make you love the FM synthesizers as it did for me. You can use it for live performances, for sound illustration, or as a classic synthesizer too. I have only one regret. It's the lack of a Midi implementation.to control tthe Operators with another App or an external keyboard. A Killer Synthesizer. A Must Have!
