Which are great for creating complex lush tambers,…lots of very natural sounds, percussive sounds,…metallic sounds.…You can really get a lot of texture,…but it's different form the subtractive synthesis…that a lot of classic synthesizers use.…Such as a minimogue or a Korg MS-20.…Frequency modulation can really allow you…to grow a sound and let it bloom,…as opposed to using subtractive synthesis.…Which is chipping away at a frequency spectrum.…This is actually developing one.…
