Formante is a new AUv3 compatible vocal filter plugin

Delivered... Ashley Elsdon | Scene | Mon 20 Aug 2018 10:11 pm

Elliott Garage brought us the EGSY01 analogue synth for iOS and now has taker the vocal section from that app. This new app is an AudioUnit AU3 compatible vocal filter plugin. It allows you to simulate the formants and the vowels of a human voice, creating rich and mellow sounds; it can be applied to synthesizes, drums, guitars or any sound you want.
Its parameters can be controlled by hosts or automated with the integrated drawable envelope (you can choose 16/32/64 steps resolution) and a BPM tempo control.

Its filter engine has been already acclaimed in the vocal section of EGSY01 analogue synth, and we decided to publish it as a standalone filter due to users request.

Formante is not a standalone app, but you need an AU3 compatible host like n-Track, AUM, Auria, Cubasis or Beatmaker3.

Formante is on the app store now and costs $3.99

It’s time to celebrate! Jasuto got its first update in almost 4 years

Jasuto has to be the original modular synth on iOS. It first arrived in 2009 and got lots of updates until 2014, then nothing. The reason was that Chris, the developer of the app, went to work for Apple.

Jasuto wasn’t just any modular synth app either. It never took the skeuomorphic approach that many have. Instead it went for a very different interface, and I always thought it was really quite beautiful to look at. Of course, initially, when it arrived (back then for iPhone) it was a revelation, and, for a lot of people, quite hard to get a grip on. Scroll forward 9 years, and we have an update. It isn’t a huge update, but it is great that it’s still there, and even greater that there’s an update, however small.

So, here’s what’s new!

Finally got the chance to convert Jasuto to 64bit, also fixed some random bugs, and updated AudioBus. I do have plans to continue extending Jasuto, but I think what I was working on before I joined Apple might take priority 🙂


Like I said, not huge, but great anyway. I’m excited! You can probably tell right.

Jasuto, on the app store, it costs $4.99

Consent Decrees Remind Broadcasters to Seek FCC Approval for Corporate Changes – Even When Control Does Not Change

Delivered... David Oxenford | Scene | Mon 20 Aug 2018 3:08 pm

Last week, the FCC released a Consent Decree where a broadcast company admitted to certain unauthorized transfers of several stations, even though actual control of the stations, for the most part, did not change. Stock of the company was transferred into a trust by the company’s shareholder without FCC approval, even though the shareholder continued to control the station until his death approximately a decade later. For this transfer, and another occasioned by the voting of the trust’s stock by his children after his death, the company agreed to pay $8,000 to the government and enter into a compliance plan to assure that no similar transfers occur in the future.

This decision and two similar Consent Decrees entered into by public companies in recent months for, without prior FCC approval, moving station licenses among wholly-owned subsidiaries as part of corporate reorganizations (see decisions here and here), remind broadcasters that, if they are making any change in their ownership where the chain of control changes, even if actual control remains the same, they still need prior FCC approval. So putting controlling stock into a trust that the majority shareholder votes instead of holding it outright, or eliminating one company in a corporate ownership chain, or moving a license from one subsidiary company to another (or directly into the parent company), all require FCC approval before the change is made. These organizational changes, where control continues to reside in the same hands both before and after the change, are filed on an FCC Form 316 and can usually be approved by the FCC very quickly. While these changes may seem (and may in fact be) inconsequential in assessing who owns a broadcast company, the FCC (in broadcasting) still requires prior approval for such a change. Not securing that approval first may well, as in these recent cases, cost you in the long run through FCC fines, legal expenses, and the costs of instituting and administering a consent decree.

Techno symphonies: Watch Carl Craig make synthesis an ensemble art

Delivered... Peter Kirn | Scene | Mon 20 Aug 2018 2:57 pm

Detroit’s founders of techno aren’t just cashing in on their old hits; they continue to lead the form in new directions. And watching Carl Craig, you can learn a lot about the potential of electronic music in scores and ensembles.

The Carl Craig Synthesizer Ensemble combines the collective talent of leading musicians and composer Francesco Tristano with Craig’s own imagination and musical output. Or, to put it another way, you get a whole lot of keyboards going on. The rig:

2x Dave Smith Instruments Prophet-6
2x Oberheim OB-6
Arturia MatrixBrute
Native Instrumente Maschine
2x Pioneer CDJ
Allen&Heath Xone mixer
Grand piano

I got to talk to Carl over the phone – which is, by the way, wonderful, I think the hardest part was stopping chatting! – in an interview for Native Instruments. (Maschine is a centerpiece of his rig.)

Carl Craig on humanness, improvisation, and his Synthesizer Ensemble

Carl connects these new ideas with the roots of his musical performance idiom. A highlight of that thinking:

“I was always inflecting this humanness to what I do, with the sequencing, with playing the solos on top, from using the mixing board as an instrument, and from combining mixes together.”

He also talks about the process behind this collaboration, and why it’s necessary to him to have both ensemble and solo playing in his life. I think that’s an important contrast to a world of electronic music that often focuses just on DJing, with live improvisation left out (solo or ensemble). (And, in turn, even DJing or back-to-back DJ sets might be better understood if we have that frame of improvisation at the ready.)
