Gavinski’s Tutorials goes deep into the elaborate powerhouse of synthesis inside of FRMS!
FRMS by Imaginando is a fantastic synth for desktop and iOS that I recommend without hesitation. It is a unique blend of granular, subtractive and FM synthesis. You can load or quickly record files to granularise and even do live granular processing. You can use your samples as FM operators, modulating the layers in all kinds of complex formations. I have a huge giveaway for those watching at the time of release. Imaginando are allowing 5 lucky winners to win any Imaginando app - best of all, you are not limited to winning iOS versions, Imaginando are allowing winners to choose the desktop versions of apps if they prefer - very generous indeed, as FRMS desktop version costs 120 euros! Incidentally, at the time of writing, both desktop and iOS version of FRMS are on sale at 50% off. This video has timestamps when viewed in YouTube.
