actually, I was messing around with the FM8 last night trying to patch some pads (key word trying lol). I was literally like, "so I've detuned two operators, now what??" Did manage to get some half-decent stuff, but not what I was after (key word half-decent, not good not great arrrgh). Seems I eventually wound up in the early 1990's I think lol, and not the good part.
I ended up listening to some pad presets, and said, 'WTF, why don't my pads sound like this!??'
so I looked at the Ops, Mod and Env pages.....'oh, that's why.' see attached (just the matrix) LOL
definitely intimidating, but nothing a little hard work and determination won't get through, I hope......
