Episode 11-8 FM Synth Madness with Ed



Grab your keyboards let’s celebrate all the great things Yamaha did for classic game consoles and computer systems! We focus strictly on FM synth music composed for games, particularly anything with big chunky bass and funked up keyboard leads!

We are joined this week by FM synth aficionado, Ed! Not only is he an avid admirer for the synths, he is the co-host of the excellent demo-scene podcast The Impulse Project. AND the co-host of the also excellent VGM podcast PixelTunes Radio! Also be sure to check out his VGM archives at this super fantastic link right here at ffshrines.
