How is linear FM accessed and used?
« on: December 15, 2016, 06:50:47 AM »
I admit it, I am not that knowledgeable about FM synthesis, but I'd like to be. I have updated to 1.4.1 so my P12 is capable of linear FM. Can anyone explain how I access and use the linear FM and what to expect?

Also, when is AM synthesis useful? It never seems to do much at all but I'm sure I am not using it properly.

Thank you!

There's a short Linear FM primer in the 1.4.1 manual addendum to get you started: https://www.davesmithinstruments.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/Prophet-12-OS-1.4.1-Addendum.pdf?d51558
