FM Poly Synth.. Trying to combine the simple FM tutorial with a polyphonic synth

March 20, 2011 | 6:26 am

Hi again … I Successfully created a polyphonic synth … BUT I am now trying to add an FM patch to the mix … But I am having trouble … I cant seem to get the keyboard to play the notes from the FM thing I hacked onto the sub patch… Andrew.

I pushed things around to make more efficient use of the poly~ system.

THANKS SO SO MUCH ! Its almost working … Well it works BUT one major thing is not working … The function box (that says modulation Index directly below it) in the " voiceFM " sub patch is not affecting the sound .. Therefore the fm voice is ONLY alterable with ADSR and "set FM ratio " but the overall sound is not changing when I mess with the function box ?!?! Thanks again Chris so so much … Andrew. (PS I added a screen shot to show you what I am talking about).

If you were editing the function by opening poly~ and editing the function there, you were only changing it for one of the voices. In this version I made a global function at the top level, and propagate that to all the functions in the voiceFM poly~
