Another in our How It Works series with top producer, engineer and software developer Yoad Nevo. Yoad remotely talks us through some basic principles of FM synthesis using simple oscillators, the Waves Flow Motion FM synth (which Yoad was involved in) and the EFM-1 synth from within Logic.
Check out Nevosound.com/sonicstate to see what he does day too day.
He's offering Sonicstate Mates Rates if you need mix or production work.
