PARANDROID FULL FM LEAD TUTROIAL 2021
In this course, you will learn how to synthesize, record, and arrange your FM Leads. This tutorial is especially useful for people that aim to produce Darkpsy, Hitech, and Forest Psytrance. The complete Tutorial is recorded in High Definition Video.
This multi-part course starts at the very beginning, explaining what FM synthesis is. Next, we will have a look at all important elements for the kin of FM synthesis we are aiming to do.
After we are done learning about the basics of FM and which parameters are interesting and important for those kinds of sounds, we will proceed to actually do 3 Different FM leads, that all work with different “ingredients”.
In the third part of our FM Lead Video Course we will record our 3 FM l,eads and arrange them. All 3 patches fundamentally sound different. We will use offline processing in order to dynamically make use of the “Ping Pong Delay”. We will also learn how to process and chop FM leads in an easy and straightforward way. Along the way, Parandroid will show you several tips and secrets surrounding the use and production of FM Leads in Psytrance.
While the lesson is recorded in Steinberg Cubase 10, the Tutorial can also be useful to users of any other DAW.

Video Preview of Lesson 3 – Stereo FM
In this part of the video course, I show you how to actually create your own FM Lead sounds. This is one of three FM patches that we will create together in this tutorial.
Video Preview of the end of lesson 4:
This video preview gives you a good idea about what you will learn in this video course. Apart from the Synthesis, we also learn how to arrange our leads. We use the three leads created in the previous part of the lesson to create a dynamic and engaging FM Lead part on top of a Parandroid Bassline. I explain every aspect of what I am doing, in order to give you a deeper insight into my ways of working.
