Here's a simplified FM instrument - based on the basic idea of the pretty obscure Korg DS-8, which was built around the voice of the Yamaha FB-01 4-op FM module. In place of the then-bewildering Ratio Tuning and Modulation Index way of producing waveforms, it had a set of pre-formed FM waves that one could shape 'up' from sine - a bit like the way the Casio CZ instruments worked but with FM instead of Phase Distortion. It also had only two algorithms - a pair of Modulator/Carriers (like DX100 algo 5) and a 4-op stack.

With this vst, I've pushed it to a more conventional Ratio-tuned FM instrument and expanded it to six operators; also two algos - three 2-op pairs or a 4-op stack (X-Mod) plus one 2-op pair. I've retained much of DS-8's more conventional analog synth nomenclature and the Coarse/Fine tuning of the operator pairs (Oscillators). Also given it a second LFO.

A much friendlier way to FM, but less limited than DS-8.

Happy New Year!

For those whose hosts can't save presets as .fxb, all plugs in the 'Named Params' folder now have a Preset Manager added.

The ones just done are:

80-vox
Cassini
Chorg 770DV
Insoniq EZQ-FM
Kroma Duette
M
minimodular
Multipoly
OatsFM
Polly
Rolend Block-8
Rolend Block-8_cables
Rolend JP-680
Rolend SH-57
Rolend SH-75
Rolend System 101M
Rolend System 101M_4eg
Synthakon
Synthegrated 12A
Synthegrated 15A
Synthegrated 80
SystemOne D

An EXCELLENT idea! (-much easier to share presets across platforms/hosts!)

FWIW, here's a guy offering some presets. Since I do mostly Ambient stuff, they're not my particular cup-of-tea, but there seem to be some usable lead sounds - I've only checked out a few of them.

At the request of someone with humble CPU resources, I did a single-voice version of Chorg 770DV, so Chorg 770:

In the 'shameless promotion' department, here's an album by Mac of BIONighT made with only my plugs plus drums and, on one track, a vocoder.

Just added a new one; something I started near the beginning of it all, but never saw the point of including it: an emulation of the minimoog. Obviously it's not possible to even hint at the sound of mighty 'D' with a Synthmaker build, but I thought the new features of the re-released hardware minimoog were intriguing enough to warrant re-visiting this old build and releasing it. It's probably safe to say the minimoog is one of the synths most people are less likely to be able to afford to buy, either a vintage, well working example or the new re-release. So I think it's worth offering a free softie that at least works as closely to the hardware as I can make it, so that if one has an opportunity to play or own the real thing they will already have a fair familiarity to give them a leg-up. Approximates the architecture and feature-set, not the sound. At the top of the Mixer section is an Info button to help with the added features, etc.
As always, let me know if you find anything not working right.
And no, there are no presets.

Includes the added features of the re-release:

- Dedicated LFO.
- Alternate CV sources for the Modulation Mix inputs.
- Assignable Velocity and Aftertouch.

What the hell - let the flaming begin !

jk jk. :P Thanks for sharing your work. The UI looks really great.
Actually though the new Behringer model D is pretty affordable. I can't comment on its sound though, I haven't tried one (nor a real minimoog for that matter). :roll:

In taking a look at the current Mini alternatives I came across the Roland/SE Electronics SE-02, so I did an alternate version of minDy called minDy 2 that approximates most of the features and structure of the SE-02,, but with the minDy's vintage interface.
It's in the same folder as minDy. Both available in three GUI sizes.
