FM is cool

Native Instruments FM7Published on 07/15/12 at 23:56
Native Instruments FM 7 is very easy to use and to understand you wont need a manual nor will you have any issues running it with your system no matter what system you have. I have ran it on macs and pc’s and have seen it work on some really old systems before. I still have FM 7 and still use it, I havent really felt the need to upgrade it, I purchased it when it first came out and have been using it every since then. I only thought about upgrading one time and that was because they had some sale going on but I didn’t do it. I am very happy with FM 8 and probably wont upgrade untill they put out like FM 11 or so.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Set up is easy and every thing is pretty much automatic, you wont have any issues installing or running it on your machine as long as you have a decent amount of ram you should be ok, if it installs correctly on your system then you wont have any issues with it freezing or messing up in the middle of your session. I have used it in about 3 different daws and it hasn’t caused a problem in any of them.


OVERALL OPINION

I am glad to say that I have been using FM 7 for all these years, and I have it to the point where I have all of my own sound banks now. I no longer even touch any of the presets I have all of my own presets that I have built over the years and I am very happy with them. I have even uploaded some of my presets online so other people can use them and all I get is thanks. FM 7 has worked great for me, and once you get the hang of it you will be creating your own presets too.

Native Instruments work for me

Native Instruments FM7Published on 04/26/12 at 20:58
The FM7 by native instruments came in a bundle pack that I purchased from them. At first glance after running it as a plug in, I was a little confused own how to manipulate the presets and make them my own. But after messing around with it for a bit I had no issues. I ran it on a dual core system running windows xp. I haven't had a single crash with it. Also, it will update itself if you have internet connection and open up the update section. All you have to do is make sure the serial number is in and click on update and it will do it automatically.

As I stated , I had no issues getting it up and running. It took a little longer than expected to load into my computer. But maybe that’s...…

As I stated , I had no issues getting it up and running. It took a little longer than expected to load into my computer. But maybe that’s because its such a big program and it comes with a lot of presets and options that any music maker would love. It has doesn’t push my cpu too much, because some plug ins will over due it and make your system crackle and pop. But I had no issues even when not using ASIO drivers.

Overall, FM 7 is a great virtual synth plug in, I have been using it since 2009 and I love Native Instruments. I have since purchased a lot of their other plug ins and virtual synths. You cant go wrong with FM 7you will love the presets and you can change them and make them your own and even save them and give them a new name since you basically created them . When you purchase FM7 you will be setting a good foundation for your collection of synths and sounds. Though, I am not a big fan of a lot of the basses though, they just don’t have the thickness that I like. But besides though everything else is perfect.

The Native Instruments FM7 virtual synth was easy to install and easy to get up and running as I had no compatibility issues with my machine. The interface of the synth is pretty easy to follow, and the presets make for some great sounds that you can choose quick and easy. There is also a great deal of control over these presets as well as the ability to create your own sounds. I don't have a manual for this so I can't speak to how helpful it is or not.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I am running the FM7 on a Mac Book Pro that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM. I am running this mostly with Apple Logic, but also use it as a standalone unit. I have never had a problem...…

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I am running the FM7 on a Mac Book Pro that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM. I am running this mostly with Apple Logic, but also use it as a standalone unit. I have never had a problem running this in either situation, as both are stable. I never run more than one of these, so I don't know how well it would run if you had a bunch of these up at once - it would probably slow your system down as the synth has a lot to it. All in all, I've never had any problems running the FM7.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using the Native Instruments FM7 for about four years, and they have since come out with the FM8, which I have yet to use. Overall, I think the FM7 is a great sounding virtual synth with a ton of different parameters and presets. It is easy to use once you get the hang of it, and is really a Yamaha DX7 emulator, which is the most famous FM (frequency modulation) based synth made in the mid 1980s. This synth won't cost you too much, especially if you get it within the Komplete bundle. Even if you get it separate from the bundle, it is still a great deal considering how great this sounds and how wide the array of synth sounds you can get from this. For those who want DX7 tones in the box without the hassle of the external keyboard, this is the virtual synth for it.
