Discovery / Discovery Pro can do FM too https://www.discodsp.com/discoverypro/


Is there any 64bit demo, please?

Dexed for authencity .
Sytrus for flexibility
I am not an I.L fan , but sytrus is bloody amazing , the vst version also has the updated
vector graphics.
Aurora is also pretty nice , but the tiny 'grab the dots ' envelopes make it cumbersome to work with

Wait.. what? How come the demo is 64-bit but there is only a 32-bit full version in my account?? :o

Edit: just checked the website, but can't find a 64-bit demo for Phantom either..? Just one installer that only installs a 32-bit version.
None are so hopeless enslaved as KVRians with GAS.

Apologies, the 32/64bit was just regarding Discovery/Pro plugin. Phantom is 32bit only... and I couldn't even get it to run in 32bit DAWs - It used to lock up both Ableton & Reaper just when the DAW loads if it was installed.

Unless something utterly groundbreaking comes up, I pretty much feel covered for life with FM8, Blue2, Sytrus and their eventual updates/upgrades.

Arturia DX synth is really neat. Filters in the FM path and very flexible modulation matrix. Higher CPU load as a result, but still pretty cool

If you have Live, Operator is fantastic. Otherwise, Dexed. Insanely accurate DX-7 recreation, and we all know what a legend that thing is.

I always thought that FM7 from Native Instruments was great. Better, in fact than FM8, in my opinion, because of the lower CPU usage.

I think that, as a DX7 emulation, although Dexed is great, Arturia DX7 V is even better. Actually, as an FM synth, it's one of the best available, since it can go way beyond DX7, although following its paradigm.

True, but Dexed is free. :lol:

FM8 is amazing, if you go beyond the basic patches. Use the easy page to get some mindbending results fast. Somehow this plugin ends up in every song I make. If you like retro/megadrive/dx7 then its definitely the must have out of the bunch because of all the backwards compatibility.

I usually complement with Super Audio Cart sampled megadrive patches, there are some gold in there that makes things shine for retro stuff.

Oh and I use FM Tines for EP sounds, if you set the attack slow you have some great sounding FM pads as well.

I checked it out and yeah! It´s very good. Thank you. :party:


By the way my recommendation is:

PORTA FM by plogue. tata :party:

Awesome sounding pure FM sound-design tool with an unmatched low end sound quality. Incredible in functions (15 step sequencer to use in a complex modulation target/source matrix plus character galore due to a non-compromise authentic sound reverse engineer emulation!
