f. ’em – a new FM synth from Tracktion – Page 12 – Instruments Forum

I just went through the F’em factory library and the vast majority of the patches do not use samples, the vast majority of the ones that do use samples use them for background ambience or layering and don’t suddenly sound like nothing if you turn the samples off, and there are admittedly a very small amount of patches that essentially amount to being rompler patches where the multisample is the patch essentially.

Overall making patches from scratch the UI has a lot of tabs but I think that’s kinda a necessary evil with a complex FM synth, and I would agree it honestly feels like the FM9 NI declined to make.

EDIT: I will say using field recordings at a fixed pitch as an FM source for some of your operators in an FM patch gets into really really creepy/horror vibes real fast.
