    I was beginning to wonder if there were ANY girls out there, that are into
    sound design/ production…
    Thanks for the informative Tut, and helping me figure out how to do
    something as simple as activate an oscillator.
    Ive been driving myself crazy thinking my fm8 was broken for the past 2
    days because the oscillators wouldn’t work!
    Thanks again!

    I’m Japanese and English is my second language. I tried few times studying
    FM synthesis in Japanese, and it never made sense, but I started to
    understand it watching this movie. Wow. Crazy. You are awesome!!! *Thumbs

    Thank you for your tutorial. I’ve been making music for years, but was only
    relying on patches from other people. Trying to find my way to create a
    couple of sounds on my own, I failed – so far.

    Other tutorials were way too much relating on just specific synths, or were
    way too technical. Your tutorial though gave me a clear insight to FM
    synthesis regardless of the synth, with enough technical aspect to
    transform the knowledge to any other synth.

    Thank you. I found this video really helpful and interesting. Watching it

    Thank you for posting this. I feel a little less intimidated by diving
