K.M. Krebs QM-Synth

QM-Synth by K.M. Krebs is a synth implementing Quantized Modulator (QM) synthesis.

Zed @ Synth Of Mine explains Quantized Modulator synthesis:

You take a simple wave (sin wave at the picture) with a frequency X (i.e. 1 / T), quantize by a frequency Y(1 / t) and use the result as FM modulator. It’s easy to see how it’s simple and *almost FM synthesis*. But the quantization makes an enormous and extraordinary difference between QM and FM synthesis.

QM-Synth, K.M. Krebs’ SynthEdit implementation of QM synthesis, can be downloaded here (box.net).

If you own Reaktor you will want to check out Zed’s Quantum Radio v1.0 (near the bottom of the page).

    The plugin does not seem to be that useful, but the reaktor-ensemble is freaking awesome.
