I am new to Native Instruments - FM8, up until now I have been using Native Instruments - Massive. I am getting my grasps on how the envelopes and LFO's work within FM8, I was wondering if there was a way I could link an envelope or LFO directly to the volume (main signal) of my synth?

Is this something (or anything like this) I could do ?

Any tips/help or advice(s) is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

You can't but you can add an LFO/Envelope on the Oscillator/Filter/Saturation and finally Pitch object.

One thing you could do is having only one oscillator on output (modulated and even modulating other oscillators) then modulate it with an LFO/Envelope.

You could also use an external LFO plugin like Xfer Records - LFOTools or TAL - TAL-Filter-2, the only thing you need to look at carefully is how your LFO is triggered if you can't trigger it with a note event then you might have to do an audio render of your synth when you like it or you will probably have some random render while playing your sound.
