I've had a few listens to this and i find it strangely interesting. Lots of sections remind me of something ive heard 'naturally' ie - the later section sounds like planes decending which i hear a lot where i live and the start sounds like a place i used to work etc etc. In fact it's mostly work based memories as im a design engineer in the real world and being a synth nerd too i take special notice of the sound/noise/acoustics of various machines when they're running.

I'm going to guess that wasn't what you were trying to portray with the track but considering it isn't a sequence of samples but an evolving patch I think it's pretty cool.

Thanks! Yeah, it's funny how quickly FM starts to sound natural and physical.

The patch is very simple, just two identical setups (left and right) of an operator moulating the carrier. Both pitches rise and fall with a slow LFO, and then there is a slow LFO controlling the modulation index of the FM setup.

Yes, the neverending FM/PM possibilities.
Great FM drone!

Cheers! Have you published any FM stuff here at WB2016?

Yes, not a pure FM track, but i use different PM/FM tech in my releases.
