gods i fuckin love fm synthesis

i was doing some research on the many different fm synth chips yamaha made, i was expecting there to be an obvious hierarchy of quality and abilities, but actually it's more complex than that

like i knew the opl3 and dx7 had more voices than the opn2, and that the opn2 can only do sine wave operators.. but in some ways the opn2 has an edge, bc it's multi-timbre

very interesting

i still really want the reface dx keyboard,
