Setting Up FM8 MIDI Controller
Throughout the process of setting up an FM8 MIDI Controller such as mapping, or assigning, various parameters to different knobs, wheels, sliders, etc on a MIDI controller, he also shares with us the different effects that some of the parameters have on your sounds.
This is all priceless knowledge and will be with you for many more years to come as you continue to use FM8 for your sound design needs.
Dave even walks through the effects panel and shows the many ways to use popular FX such as cabinets and tube amps to give your instruments more true to life characteristics and overall feel.
Of course, although he is showcasing Ableton Live in this tutorial, you can absolutely use the same steps as this FM8 MIDI Controller to map your MIDI devices no matter what DAW you choose to use in your projects. One more thing to keep in mind is that you do not need MIDI controllers to make all of your modulations happen in your music. You can also set up automation within your DAW to adjust various parameters over time, which allows you to add a great deal of development and interest to your songs, sound effects, transitions, etc.
