FL SynthMaker can be used to make synth plugins, effects and dashboards (to control external gear). There's also plenty of pre-made plugins waiting to be used. This tutorial shows how to create ring modulator and echo/delay effects.
FL SynthMaker is included FREE in FL Studio Producer edition and higher
Tip: To learn SynthMaker it's a good idea to start with some simple projects that recreate something you already know well. For example, a 2 oscillator synth. What do you know about synths? So they have Oscillators - Envelopes - Filters - Output. Then all you need to do is find those modules in SynthMaker and link them together, done!
Making a basic synth will be the subject of our next tutorial.
FL SynthMaker was updated to version 2 with FL Studio 10.0.9. FL SynthMaker has been included FREE with FL Studio Producer Edition (and upward) since FL Studio 8.
FL SynthMaker loads as an Instrument or Effect plugin and is an audio programming application that is used to create synth and effect plugins without the need to write programming code. The instruments and effects you create in SynthMaker can be used in FL Studio as 'native' plugins and shared with other FL Studio users. FL Synthmaker 2 loads all Synthmaker 2 projects from the stand-alone version.
Importantly FL Synthmaker comes with many pre-made synth, effect and dashboard projects, that become plugins at the click of a button, check them out here.
In this tutorial the Guru discusses the basis of working with the various synthesis sections in Harmor.
Image-Line customer can download the Charles Deluxe project used in this tutorial below.
Download the Charles DeluxeHarmor Demo Project here.Note: You need FL Studio 10.0.8 or later to run this project, get it here. This tutorial provides an overview of the various sections of Harmor and some of the not-so-obvious but powerful features.
Harmor, let the tutorials begin! In this first tutorial the Guru explains why we say Harmor is an Additive / Subtractive Synthesizer.
So just what is Additive / Subtractive Synthesis?
The purpose of this video is to show that Harmor is based on an Additive Synthesis engine and the partials fed to the engine can be subtractively filtered/manipulated. This is why we call Harmor an Additive / Subtractive synthesizer.
Pricing:Introductory price $99 and will revert to $149 on October 1, after the sale. Get in quick!
Harmor features a unique and modern additive synthesis engine that emulates classic subtractive synthesis as well, taking sound generation to the next level. Check the manual and see the development & demo videos at YouTube. To download and try the democlick here.
Additive / subtractive emulation - generating sounds not possible with traditional synthesis methods, including the ability to draw custom filter shapes, and offering precise control over every aspect of the sound conception.
Image & Audio Resynthesis - allowing a faithful, sampler-quality resynthesis of audio, not a vague sound-alike often met in additive synthesizers. Images too can be imported and turned into sound.
Envelopes and articulation - as originally seen in Image-Line's flagship synthesizer Sytrus, are taken to new levels of features, flexibility and GUI integration.
Sound creation - possibilities are endless, but not bewildering. Stutter, mangle, stretch, pitch and manipulate both audio and images beyond recognition.
