Before indulging in this article, be advised to hold on to something, “anything”, and hold on tight because this is a wild one. No joke, rather the top-notch FM8 synthesizer from Native Instruments is currently at a legendary 93% off! Where? Plugin Boutique of course! When? This very instant, and also until September 6th. Well, go on then, read on or go get it!
Pristine quality, power, brilliant dynamics, ease of use, awesome controllability, and a lot of features and effects. Those are some of the characteristics to describe the FM8 synthesizer from Native Instruments. No matter what sound you’d like to achieve, it will be easy peasy with FM8. From melodic leads to drum or percussion sounds, and from complex arps to morphing sound, the possibilities are nearly endless and it is extremely hard to get bored with this versatile device.
While conventional FM synthesis does have some rather well-understood limitations, this synth goes well beyond them in a variety of ways. With “Smooth Operators” that can be swiftly set in the matrix, parameter modulation of either two operators is made into a breeze, stimulating the user to employ the matrix more and more at every turn. On a personal note which may or may not be subjective: we “love” that matrix. Combined with a selection of twelve “charismatic” effects, an intelligent arpeggiator, endless sound-shaping potential, advanced envelopes that can be linked, more than 1200 professionally crafted presets and basically just too many more features to count, that loving feeling we just mentioned seems completely justified.
There is so much more to love about FM8 which we could write down into a wall of text only to preach about its benefits and talents, but we’d be better granting you that extra time to stop wasting it and grab this once in a so-many-years-deal without further ado. If there might be one downside to this plugin, it would be that it is just too “addictive” and we feel they should have named it that instead.
For a little over $/€12 –yes, that is “twelve” wholesome dollars or euros–you’ll be “set”. And with that, that’s that!
