+1 FM-8, deep rabbit hole but it is superb and unmatched imo.

wow, thanks. Never heard of them. Ambidextrous Synthesizer from them looks intriguing.
I really appreciate this recommendation. These are so much better than they might first appear. Amazing and I think I'm going to pick up one of the sets.

Yeh, I think I agree. I keep coming back to it. Seems so logical and straight forward and extensive!

I bought Phase Plant during a recent sale, and I've been really happy with it. I like that you can apply FM or PM (or both) to the wavetable oscillator and sampler as well. The modular approach and modulation options are really powerful.

I've used FM8 since it was FM7, and it's great but the modulation routing is really limited in comparison.

I use vcvrack 2 a lot now for this, has every option I need and in poly. Mirack isnt the best, but has a very good set of basic fm modules to learn the concepts. [ i btw have fm-8, but tend not to use it because I find vcvrack 2 easier to use & integrate with the other eurorack stuff).
