Patch Base has the best Yamaha FB-01 editor and librarian available for Mac and iPad. Edit any parameter, organize patches, create random patches, and more.
Patch Base makes FM easy to work with by showing you the layout of the currently selected algorithm and the envelopes and settings of each operator. You can finally visualize what's going on inside of the FB-01, and once you do, it's not that complicated. Everything is shown on a single screen, including the LFO and other control settings.
And the FB-01 has 8 separate FM parts: Patch Base has a separate editor for each of them, so you can switch between editing any part at any time.
The FB-01 can play up to 8 parts at once via Performances. Patch Base shows you the entire Performance in one place for easy editing of sound selection, mixing levels, MIDI channels and more. Quickly create a multi-layered Performance for big sounds, or a multi-channel Performance to play an entire track using the FB-01's 8 voices.
Patch Base's Bank Editors let you change and organize the saved sounds and performances on your Yamaha FB-01. You can easily save a bank to a file for back up and storage, and import entire new banks in seconds.
