An 8-part multi-timbral digital synthesizer module released in 1986.

The FB-01 is an inexpensive tabletop module with a simple 4-operator FM synthesis engine. No filters or effects are included. The unit offers 8-part multi-timbrality, but sadly no dynamic allocation for the voices. Furthermore, the same LFO modulation is shared by all playing sounds.

Programming the machine is only possible by computer software or SysEx messages from a sequencer. The FB-01's internal memory holds 240 preset sounds and 96 user patches.
