i get the impression the op is on max6.

while it is important and useful to get to grips with the MSP signal vector delay issues for your general max patching knowledge, that method in this situation is not advantageous at all. it is effectively a ‘deprecated’ method if you are on max6. we have gen~ now, and can do single sample feedback, so we might as well use it.

the best fm + msp tutorial i have ever seen is the basic FM walkthrough in the Peter Elsea package, downloadable from

i attach a quick demo of the peter elsea idea ported to gen~ with single sample feedback chain for oscillator self modulation. (max6 only).

hope it helps.
