Synth Glossary

Frequency Modulation (FM):
Frequency modulation allows the output of one oscillator to drive the frequency of another oscillator. It can generate very complex sounds from very simple waveforms and is the basis of the Yamaha DX range of synthisizers and OPL range of synthesizer chips (used in Adlib and most other soundcards)....


Basically an expanded Satellite, the Minitmoog is one of the rarest of all the Moogs, due to the fact that so few were made. It is a monophonic, dual oscillator (with sync), preset synthesizer with aftertouch, which can control sync sweep, pitch bend, filter cutoff, or modulation. The available presets were Mute, Trumpet, Oboe, Clarinet, Sax, Taurus, Violin, Piano, Guitar I, Guitar II, Aries, Lunar, and Flute. It was transposable down 1, 2, or 3 octaves and it had height-adjustable back legs.
