Correction: FCC Regulatory Fees Due September 24 – And You Can Start Paying Now

Delivered... David Oxenford | Scene | Wed 28 Aug 2019 10:35 pm

The FCC issued a Public Notice today, announcing that its regulatory fee filing system was now taking payments – and that payments are due by 11:59 PM Eastern Time, on September 24.  Yesterday, we indicated that the fees were due on September 30.  We based that on a sentence in the FCC’s Order that said that was the deadline for the fees – but the FCC must have been talking about its deadline for collecting the fees, not the deadline for fee filers to pay the fees – as today’s Public Notice makes clear.  So make sure you file before September 24 to avoid big penalties.

Broadcasters should review  the Media Bureau’s Fee Filing Guide, available here.

Gory sounds from vegetables and fruits: Mortal Kombat sound design

Delivered... Peter Kirn | Scene | Wed 28 Aug 2019 6:21 pm

VICE News did a great video piece on the sound design of the latest Mortal Kombat video game. And it could inspire you to try some experiments with a mic yourself.

“You punched my brain out of my face.” Okay, that needs some gooey, awful sounds indeed.

VICE headed to the recording facilities at Netherrealm Studios in Chicago, who worked on the game’s foley track, and spoke with Senior Sound Designer Stephen Schappler. Now, you may or may not get the chance to make your own violent game soundtrack, but the thoughts here are some added sonic inspiration to try new experiments with a mic.

The secret sauce is pretty simple: actual blunt objects and weapons, meet … juicy fruits and veg. Get those organic sounds, then repitch, process, distort, and so on. (It occurs to me that may shift the approach a bit from the more real-for-real technique of someone like Ben Burtt, whose sounds for the likes of Star Wars seemed to involve more layering and unexpected recordings, lacking some of this software. But both directions likely now hold some appeal for us today.)

Nutcracker and nuts – that’s easy. Squishing a green pepper or grapefruit – fantastic. I won’t give all the rest away.

In the box, there are still more tricks – let’s trainspot a bit here.

The DAW is Reaper, which looks like Stephen has really mastered in keyboard shortcuts. (Note also the track folders for asset management.)

You’ll also see he keeps a second display for maintaining a giant list of sound files. And there are some convenient controllers handy (a MIDI Fighter Twister, PreSonus FaderPort – actually, the Classic.)

The big trick here is mangling the samples with Twisted Tools’ S-LAYER for Reaktor 5 and later.

Fun times.

You know you’re a sound geek, though, when this makes you want to open Reaktor rather than a PlayStation.

2019 FCC Regulatory Fees to be Due By September 30 – Commission Issues Fee Order

Delivered... David Oxenford | Scene | Wed 28 Aug 2019 2:44 pm

The FCC on Tuesday released its Report and Order on regulatory fees.  The Order says that the fees will be due by September 30.  The FCC should soon issue additional guidance about the exact filing dates and procedures.

In the Order, the FCC did reduce the fees for radio somewhat from those proposed in their Notice of Proposed Rulemaking in May.  However, it was not the decrease sought by many broadcast groups.  The radio fees, even though reduced, still result in an increase from last year’s fees.  The FCC attributed that increase both to a somewhat smaller number of stations and an increase in the operating costs of the FCC that had to be shared among all regulated entities.

The FCC rejected requests to review its prior decision to begin to base TV regulatory fees on the population served by the TV station, rather than based on its DMA.  The FCC did, however, announce that it would commence a Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to decide whether to reduce the fees paid by VHF stations in the future.  Some broadcasters argued that because the real-world digital signal of VHF stations is inferior to that of UHF stations even when both are predicted to serve the same area, VHF stations in fact reach fewer viewers.  The FCC will consider that issue for 2020 reg fees.

Also to be considered in this Further Notice is whether stations should pay lower regulatory fees when they are being “incubated” in the FCC’s incubator program designed to encourage new broadcast owners.  Comments on the Further Notice will be due 30 days after the FCC’s Further Notice is published in the Federal Register.

While further procedural details on reg fee filing will be coming from the FCC, the Order did emphasize two points.  It made clear that the licensee who holds the station license on the date that the fees are due is responsible for paying those fees, even though the fees are based on the status of the station as of October 1, 2018.

Also, the FCC made clear that it will not issue blanket fee waivers for stations in bankruptcy.  While the FCC may waive regulatory fees for a licensee that can demonstrate a unique financial hardship, the FCC made clear in the Order that bankruptcy was not automatically a demonstration of that inability to pay.  Instead, a licensee in bankruptcy proceedings must show why it filed for bankruptcy, whether it is liquidating its assets or merely doing a reorganization, whether the bankruptcy estate has sufficient funds to pay other creditors, and similar factors.  Whether a bankrupt company will receive a waiver will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

Watch for more details on filing procedures shortly.
