First default preset as example. (It seems quite simple at least by timbre).
It is interesting that he is just one of the most eating patches lol.

Yeah, that one's a good example of what I was referring to. Try playing with the two XY pads and you'll find it's much more timbrally complex (and more interesting) than it seems at first.

Am I the only way that can't get resonance from the low or high pass filters in the eq section? Moving the Q does nothing, it doesn't even show up visually

I did check now - it works for me, by sound and visually. Although i still use v1.1.3 (forgot to update all time), not sure how will be in latest.
But be sure that not selected "Cut" mode (for low or high), in which Q actually does not do anything. As well Gain in this mode has some strange behavior, so im unsure if it properly behavior.
While in Shelf and Bell modes all works noticeable.

Upd: did install 1.1.6 - no changes. (Win10 vst2)

It is interesting, many of them are just multi-layering, that is without FM modulation itself. And yes, the Matrix is a very handy way for layering and mixing with FM by need.

And I say about layering inside each of "Layer 1" - "Layer -4". Ooh...
