Let's Play with Phasemaker

With the site running smoothly, I was able to dedicate some time this week to actually playing with the music apps I've been reporting on! I'm diving back into the Let's Play series with the latest FM synth: Phasemaker! I'm a big fan of FM, but hate having to explain it. So I don't!

This Let's Play is just sound design, with the basic concepts of FM. If you want a lengthy explanation on FM synthesis, check out pantsofdeath's video on the subject.

Video Description:

I'm back! After a long stretch of working on the new code for my website, I'm back to bring you more Let's Plays. Let's get the ball rolling with a new FM synth, Phasemaker!

LOL, yeah. My time on Reddit and similar sites has revealed that whenever you show off something on a web browser, more people spend more time looking at the other tabs rather than the one you're showing them.

I thought I'd tell a story with my background tabs. ;)
"a fun TWINK sound"

Psychoanalysis not required Mr. Tim.

I don't know if it's different for FM synthesis, but a 440Hz it's an A above middle C

You're correct! I misspoke. I should have said Middle A.
