The content of „FM Xpanded“:
• 64 Voices

The soundlibrary „FM Xpanded“ offers sample-based FM-sounds with highest dynamic and authenticity. It includes DX-oriented sounds as well new and innovative sound creations.
What is „FM“?
FM is the abbreviation of Frequency Modulation.
This sound generation type use operators instead of oscillators. Operators can behave as oscillators or as modulators. Algorithms are used to combine operators and decide which opeartor modulates another one. Their amplitudes and frequency characterizes the sound in addition.
The FM synthesis was developed in 1967 by the american scientist Prof. Dr. John Chowning at the Stanford University and was made public in 1973. One year later the Yamaha Corporation bought the patents on this revolutionary synthesis system.
In 1983 the Yamaha DX7 was introduced and put the synthesizer world upside down, leaving synthesizer legends like Moog or Oberheim behind.
Countless music productions featured the all new sound of the DX7 – having its strengths in unique E-Pianos, Synth Basses, Harps, Organs, and metallic sounds. The dynamic range of these sounds became the standard for all future digital sounds.
After the groundbreaking success of the DX7 the FM synthesis has found its way into a large range of Yamaha synthesizers like TX7, TX816, DX21, TX81Z, DX27, DX100, FB01, DX7II, TX802, V50, SY77, SY99, FS1R, DX200, PLG-150-DX, reface.
Sample-Partial-Programming (SPP) for expressive and dynamic FM-sounds
The multisamples have been recorded in serveral dynamic levels to re-build the high dynamic range of FM-synthesizers as good as possible.
This lead to a much higher dynamic range than a simple 1:1 sample process.
EASY SOUNDS developed FM-partials, which were mapped as User Waveforms and combined to new FM-voices using up to 8 voice elements of MOTIF XS. The technique of Sample-Partial-Programming (SPP) offers a very high flexibility allowing creative sounddesign. You don’t need to be an expert for making individual edits.
For the sample-production beside the legendary DX7 other FM-synths like SY99, FS1R, DX200 or FM8 were used.
Many of the delivered voices are referring to the classic DX7 Voices. They provide the feeling of playing a real FM-synth.
Impressive stereo-sounds are similar like the DX7II with wide panning.
Based on different combinings of the FM-partials there are also many new sounds with independent character.
And you will find also several „Hybrid Sounds“ combining conventional electric pianos with FM-partials.
The voices and performances are not only useful for conventional or contemporary music. There are also trendy keyboard sounds using the MOTIF XS / XF effects and filter, which fit to many trendy music styles.
