upgrade to FM8 - Reviews Native Instruments FM8

Native Instruments FM8 is a very powerful virtual synth that you can use stand alone (I think you can now) and as a plug in which I use it as. It is a very stable program and the developers took a lot of time to work out all of the kinks and bugs. I just cant find anything wrong with this program. I still use this a lot on my Vista computer, and I have used it will fl studio and cubase. Some of the biggest changes from FM 7 to FM 8 is that it doesn’t take that long to load up your presets. On fm 7 it would take a little longer for them to load and with FM 8 it is almost instant.

Since I have been using FM 7 for quite some time now using FM 8 was as easy as it gets for me. I havent touched the manual not 1 time yet and probably never will. Everything with FM 8 is layed out really nice. The user interface is very easy to understand and navigate even if you are using FM 8 for the first time you will have no issues finding what you need and changing the parameters of your sounds and tweaking them to your liking.

Overall, FM 8 is awesome. It is a very solid well thought out program and will run great on your system. It has everything that you could need in a virtual synth and can be wired through almost any program that’s on the market that takes VST’s. If I could make a change I would just say to have some more presets. I like using a lot of presets and adding different effects to them from my mixer rack. I wish FM 8 just had more presets. But besides that you really couldn’t expect anything more. It runs great and sounds great.
