FMC is a project to rewrite the 1990 Amiga app as a HTML5 browser app.
This page will grow as the new app is developed.
In 1989, we started an exploratory project into audio synthesis. FMC built virtual modular algorithms, as a diagram of synthisizer 'operators'. It offered a choice of about twenty different operator types, each of which processed an input signal in a different way: most were elements that were in use in professional synthesizers of the time. With a bit of work, one could produce a fair imitation of well-known sounds.
We're aware that since 1989, audio synthesis has moved on significantly. This project is not necessarily about besting today's efforts. Rather, like the old FMC, it serves as a platform for experimentation. After achieving a basic engine, we'll be implementing some ideas in our own way. We could give you a wonderful list of features here, but that would not be wise: we don't know how much time we'll be able to dedicate to the project.
It generates a digital signal for a sine wave, using the parameters for Operator 0 and the Performance. This can be played or downloaded, directly from the browser, without using a server. It works on mobile and desktop. We're now looking at the Patch editing UI, and will be improving the capability synthesis in small updates (Agile).
We're not ready to make a public release yet, but you can follow a reasonably up-to-date log of developments on G+.
We privately maintain these assets: git repository, backlog list.
