Enable FM synth mode with samples?

15

If FM synth mode was possible with samples it would open up a lot of sonic possibilities. The FM synth in the Deluge is allready wonderful, adding the possibility to modulate samples would make even greater (like the Yamaha SY77/SY99 synths).

    Felt like this needed a bump.

    Just want to say that this seems like a great idea, and if you could do a sample FMing another sample you could create insane chains of noise and almost any sound in the world simply by recording the finished products. In effect it would be an infinite operator FM synth (RAM and CPU dependent of course) to someone dedicated enough, and compared to using many operators in a chain it wouldn't be as CPU heavy, I would think anyway.

    Plus with the deluge's ability to have multiple synth instruments you could keep the lower parts of the chain open so if a lower on the chain soundwave needed editing it could be gone back to easily, rerecorded and thrown in wherever.

    It's a way cooler idea than it would initially appear (I think), if a bit tedious.

    This suggestion is not clear enough IMHO. What kind of sample FM do you want?
    Yamaha afaik never allowed to load any WAV into the (A)FM engine. Rather a hybrid mode: AWM samples could be used as transients for FM. Possible you could load the AWM stock samples to the FM carriers. But no user samples.

    FM with samples is exotic and afaik there only a very few synths that offer this.

    Still upvoted. FM with samples is very demanding imho, however I dont know about Rohans interests and skills, so he might have been researching this already. What should be there is RM with samples and audio in. should be more straight forward to develop.
