FM Modulation – Modulating a Modulator

November 23, 2012 | 7:21 pm

So I’m trying to imitate a DX7 algorithm and one of the carrier operators has to be modulated by a operator which in turn is modulated by another operator which is fed back into itself. I have got the carrier and the first modulator working correctly but can’t seem to get the second modulator to make any effect. Any Ideas on how to get this working? I’m very new to Max so I’m having some difficulty getting things to work so some advice would be very handy. Thanks in advance.

It’s the operator feeding back into itself. In Max/MSP you can’t make feedback loops with zero samples delay.You’d have to use send~ and receive~ to make a feedback loop that has the delaytime of your signal vector size. But actually you would want no delay at all. Then the solution would be Gen.

But since you’re new to Max I would recommend you to learn the basics of Max first.
