FM7 allows you to create multiple instances ("File/New Instance" or 
Command-N) of the synthesizer and to assign each to its own MIDI 
channel ("System/MIDI Settings..."). You are limited to eight 
instances, which allows FM7 to be eight-part multitimbral. This 
feature is not clearly explained in the manual, so it's easy to see 
how you might have missed it.
