Asymmetrical frequency modulation (AFM) as proposed by Palamin et al. (1988) offers great flexibility in the shaping of the spectra of synthesized waveforms as compared to normal frequency-modulation (FM) synthesis. The feasibility of using AFM synthesis for the real-time generation of waveforms of musical instruments is demonstrated using a DSP56000 digital signal processor to implement the AFM algorithm.
