I made a nice FM synth using OSC~s.
Then I thought it would be interesting to use waveforms stored in arrays so that you could change the basic waveforms…. so I replaced the carrier OSC~ with a PHASOR~ multiplied by the length of the array, into a TABREAD4~.
I put a sine into my array.
Already it sounds completely different to using an OSC~, even though the contents of the array is just a sinewave.
The modulator waveform is still generated by an OSC~.
Any idea why it sounds so different?
