The ARP 2600 is a great synth to learn FM Modulation on since it was pretty much design for teaching.

Arturia has made a good VST of this classic. So if you donĀ“t have 7K to blow on a real synth, get that and start learning how to patch.. To me it was a great starting point for FM modulation and basic synthesis..
