Xenharmonic FMTS 2 is a 4 Operator FM Synthesis VSTi with a specialized set of features for computer
musicians interested in exploring the vast expressive possibilities of making music with alternative
intonation systems. It is a 32-bit plugin instrument for Windows.
Microtuning Features

Internally loads and externally receives both MTS (MIDI Tuning Standard) Bulk Dump and Single Note
Microtuning Files

Operator ratios can easily be set to values that are coincident with the microtuning being used,
thereby producing intonation related sidebands in the timbre of the instrument

Microtonal pitch-bend ranges may be configured in cents, harmonics and superparticular ratios

Arbitrary microtonal pitch shifting makes it possible to easily pitch transpose the oscillators in both
octave and non-octave increments
FM-RM Oscillator

4 Operator FM Synthesis with Ring-Modulation

57 Operator Algorithms

11 different Operator Waveforms

Analog Pitch Drift Emulator

Transposition by cents offsets

Partials text files may be used to quantize the frequency ratios of the operators to user specified
values

Velocity-to-Harmonics Modulation enables oscillators to dynamically sound harmonics of the
fundamental pitch
Modulators

Seven dedicated hybrid modulators for Operators A, B, C, D, Filters, Amplifier and Pitch

Each modulator includes an ADSR style envelope generator, and an LFO which can be switched to run
at audio-rate
