Sound Design with Native Instruments FM8 This book will teach you how to design sounds using Frequency Modulation (FM) synthesis techniques in Native Instruments FM8. With the help of interface screenshots, multiple audio examples and even videos this book delivers an ideal platform to learn a complicated synthesis technique.
A basic understanding of FM synthesis in Native Instruments FM8 is assumed as this book does not cover theoretical concepts, just practical applications. Having said that, readers with limited knowledge in FM synthesis will also gain a lot by just following along the book and creating the sounds. There isn’t a better way to learn sound design other than actually designing sounds.

It is recommended to experience this book on a Mac or an iPad. You can also use an iPhone or iPod Touch but those platforms are not ideal for the way this book is formatted.
