Yamaha FB-01 Digital Programmable Algorithm Synthesizer

   0 reviews  -  1795 views

    Yamaha FB-01 Digital Programmable Algorithm Synthesizer incorporates state-of-the—art digital FM tone generation technology, providing extraordinarily vibrant, rich voices and outstanding play-ability in a portable half-rack module.

    The FB-01 has a programmable 96 voice INTERNAL memory (RAM) from which any voice can be selected at the touch of a button, two 240 voice PRESET (ROM) memories.

    The FB-01 is programmable via a DX100 or remote editor such as the CX5M, allowing you to create your own FM voices or sound effects. Broad MIDI compatibility is also provided so the FM01 can be controlled via other MIDI-compatible music equipment.

    Digital FM (Frequency Modulation) Synthesis

    Four operators, each comprising a digital sine wave generator and a five-paramater envelope generator, are utilized in the arrangement of "algorithms" producing a broad array of sound.

    Preset ROM Voices

    240 preset ROM voices accessible through two separate play modes.


    The FB-01 can load and play up to 8 different sounds at a time.

    MIDI Functions

    Completely MIDI-compatable, therefore MIDI information can be sent and received by the DX100 as part of an entire MIDI network.
