With regard to summing this is totally fine; multiple signals are send
to c and c's input, like all UGen inputs, defaults to summing.

You could save yourself one "Gain", being g1. Instead of setting


you could set it to modEnv directly like;


This is because all UGens have a .gain() member which sets their
output gain. In this case we can't do that for the second signal-path
as substituting g2 by calling m.gain() would affect the signal-path in
the first line as well.

That -useful- detail aside you seem well on your way to creating a
nice FM synth!
