The Frequency Modulation (FM) function gives you additional modulation control over the
sound, letting you apply the FM signal (called the "modulator") to the VCO 1 (here called
the "carrier"), letting you dramatically change the harmonic complexity of the sound. In
the FM block, the Depth of the modulation can be controlled; however, additional detailed
parameters are available in the

This determines the amount of modulation created by the FM function. Higher values
result in greater modulation depth. Although the overall sound depends on the setting of

Too deep of a setting will change the pitch of the voice.

This determines the balance of the VCO 1 level in relation to the VCO 2, Ring Modulator,
Feedback, and Noise levels. Higher values result in a higher VCO 1 level. When not
using VCO1, set the value to "0."
