Phasemaker & FM Overview

Reader pantsofdeath just saved me a whole lot of time! I love FM synthesis, but hate having to explain it. I'm planning on doing a Let's Play with Phasemaker this week, and now instead of explaining FM I can just point people to this video so I can get on with the fun sound design! Thanks, PoD! Here he gets deep into the various kinds of FM synthesis we've seen so far on iOS, before diving into the pure FM found in Phasemaker.

Video Description:

Yes, I know, I call an Operator an oscillator a couple of times, and call Bram Bos "Bam Bros" as well... sorry...

Doug's video giving you the sounds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PX8gv...

Nice overview by Pants, but looking forward to Tim's sound design video.
So is this thing capable of making the famous and much overused 6op DX7 tine piano made famous throughout the 80's? So far from the demos I've heard it sounds like my 4op DX100. If this thing is capable of the DX7 tine piano it would be an instant buy for me. I sold my DX7 and upgraded to a TG77 years ago and still use it, so this app is very interesting to me.
