As before, for this next step you will need to keep C3 depressed. Find the ﬁlter section, and experiment with the ﬁlter settings. Start by using a high-pass ﬁlter with the resonance set around midway and slowly turn the ﬁlter cut-off control. Note how the ﬁlter sweeps through the sound, removing the lower frequencies ﬁrst, slowly progressing to the higher frequencies. Also experiment with the resonance by rotating it to move upwards and downwards and note how this affects the timbre. Do the same with the notch and band pass etc.
Sounds are generated by using the output of the ﬁrst operator to modulate the pitch of the second, thereby introducing harmonics. Like an analogue synthesizer, each FM voice requires a minimum of two oscillators in order to create a basic sound, but because FM only produces sine waves the timbre produced from just one carrier and modulator isn’t very rich in harmonics. In order to remedy this, FM synthesizers provide many operators that can be conﬁgured and connected in any number of ways. Many will not produce musical results, so to simplify matters various algorithms are used.
On many synthesizers, this is known as ‘initializing a patch’, so it may be a button labelled ‘init’, ‘init patch’ or similar. Begin by pressing and holding C3 on your synthesizer, or alternatively controlling the synthesizer via MIDI programme in a continual note. If not, place something heavy on C3. The whole purpose of this exercise is to hear how the 25 26 PART 1 Technology and Theory sound develops as you begin to modify the controls of the synthesizer, so the note needs to play continually.
