    A modulated RF signal. That is, one which is carrying audio or other information. FM and AM radio employ two carrier signals but modify them in different ways. FM synthesis uses a carrier as part of the algorithm for generating sound. The carrier usually outputs the original sound source and is subsequently modified by other operators to change the timbre and other characteristics of the sound.
