FM Synthesis with Beap

Here is another Beap sketch with Max 7, this time using the FM oscillators with lots of options for modulation. There are two control options: a standard keyboard and a function for controlled sweeps.

These are some sound design examples showing the range of tones achievable from just these few modules. I've focused more on electronic sfx type sounds, but the usual FM keyboard sounds are also possible.

I was going to include the preset file, but then changed my mind - discovering sounds for yourself is the fun bit! The preset system should work though.
