FM Radio Construction Permit and License FCC Applications Moving to New Database Next Week

Delivered... David Oxenford | Scene | Tue 17 Sep 2019 5:09 pm

If you have a commercial or noncommercial FM radio station, an LPFM or an FM translator, and are looking to file an FCC application to seek a construction permit to authorize technical changes to your station, or to file a license to cover changes that were previously authorized (or which need no prior authorization), starting next Wednesday, September 25, you’ll need to file in the FCC’s LMS database, not in CDBS which has traditionally been used for broadcast applications. The FCC made this announcement in a Public Notice released last week. The Commission is gradually transitioning all of its broadcast applications to this database (TV broadcasters have already transitioned, except for assignment and transfer of control applications, and radio stations have already been required to use it for ownership reports and license renewal applications).

Starting on September 25, the following forms will be filed in LMS – and CDBS will no longer be used:

Application Type CDBS Form to be Decommissioned Sept. 25, 2019 LMS Schedule to be Used Commencing Sept. 25, 2019
Application for Construction Permit for Commercial FM Broadcast Station Form 301 Schedule 301
Application for FM Broadcast Station License Form 302 Schedule 302
Application for Construction Permit for a Low Power FM Broadcast Station Form 318 Schedule 318
Application for a Low Power FM Broadcast Station License Form 319 Schedule 319
Application for Construction Permit for Reserved Channel Noncommercial Educational FM Broadcast Station Form 340 Schedule 340
Application for Authority to Construct or Make Changes in a FM Translator or FM Booster Station Form 349 Schedule 349
Application for an FM Translator or FM Booster Station License Form 350 Schedule 350

Note that AM construction permit and license applications, many of which are still filed on paper because of the complexity of the engineering exhibits, are not yet transitioning to the new system. Assignments and transfers also are not covered by this notice, but you can expect those applications to make the change in the not-too-distant future. So remember to use the new system for any CP or license applications to be filed starting on September 25, 2019.

How focusing on one tool cured writers block, and made one sharp, chilly, ‘stoic’ EP

Delivered... Peter Kirn | Scene | Tue 17 Sep 2019 5:04 pm

Tools and technology are often described as obstacles. But sometimes focusing on a tool can refine musical process and composition – as main(void) reveals.

And yes, the goal here is, as always, to cure writers’ block and finish something that you feel really happy with. Let’s first hear the finished item, as it’s got the kind of deliciously calculated, precise electronics that first drew me to Europe. It feels chilly, but still sensual – foreplay for cyborgs, you know, putting the tech in techno:

Working musicians all have to balance different gigs. An emerging role for us is working out how to take day jobs in designing tools and sound design, and use that experience to help us make our creative musical experience better.

In the case of main(void), aka Jan Ola Korte, it meant parlaying his work in 2018 designing sounds for Native Instruments’ TRK-01 into honing his music making process. He writes:

When I was working on the sound design for Native Instruments TRK-01 in 2018, I saved a few presets to use in my own music. These sounds and patterns ended up becoming the foundation of Stoicism, my first solo EP that was released Aug 21 on Spatial Cues. I had a little bit of a writer’s block situation, so I tried to resolve it by working within very restrictive parameters. All five original tracks on Stoicism use TRK-01 as the only sound source, processed through a number of effect plug-ins. Limiting myself in this way created a nicely coherent sound palette. Since I only used TRK-01’s internal sequencers, I arranged the tracks via automation in Ableton Live, which switched up my routine in an inspiring way. In the end, this workflow not only resolved the writer’s block but led to my most comprehensive release so far.

The basic idea of TRK-01 is to do just that – it puts some focused modules dedicated to dance production in a single place. There’s a kick module, bass, sequencer, and effects – but it’s not preset territory, as each module has a number of different engines. That is, the clever twist here is removing cognitive overhead (by simplifying and integrating the interface), without limiting your creative choices (since there is still a full spectrum of very different sounds you can get out of each module).

Even with that being said, you still might not be certain how to turn this into a completed track. Now, each person will find a different pathway there, but seeing how Jan works – a bit like working with a studio mate – can often give you that “ah ha, I could actually learn from this” feeling.

Jan asked if he should do a full narrated look at his working method. Answer: aber ja.

By the way, of course this also means that by keeping this focused, adapting the release to a live gig is far easier. You’ll be able to catch main(void) live at Griessmuhle, alongside some very special DJ friends like DJ Pete, Alinka, and Qzen, plus some great names, in late October in Berlin.

Oh and yeah, go grab the music on Bandcamp! This is the them problem with promo pools, I see some huge names are playing these tracks out but they got the music for free.

Here’s the editor-plugin the underrated Elektron Model:Samples is missing

Delivered... Peter Kirn | Scene | Tue 17 Sep 2019 3:12 pm

We’ve been following Momo Müller’s software add-ons for a while. But this latest addition for Elektron’s Model:Samples is special, because it unlocks some of the power of this budget box.

Part of what’s great about the Model:Samples is that it does surface a whole bunch of stuff on the main panel for hands-on control. But that doesn’t mean everything is there. Momo’s newest editor and plug-ins gets you at the rest:

  • Full parameter access across all six tracks
  • Easier access to those hidden LFO and FX settings
  • Direct selection of patterns
  • Solo for all six tracks
  • X/Y pads – which Momo suggests you might want to assign to faders for track levels/crossfading

And all of this is integrated with the DAW, which combines nicely with the Elektron’s audio interface functionality.

You get standalone and VST versions for the Mac and Windows, plus Mac AU. There are even 32-bit versions if you have an older system.


I bring this up because if it’s really a sampler you want, the Elektron may have an edge on the Roland MC-101 (finishing that review this week). It’s a unique box, and I think uniquely playable addition to rigs without blowing the bank. Check out our full review:

Plus the feature that might put it over the top for you:

Andreas Roman has another review for us this week – I’m finishing editing now – on the 1010 Blackbox. So you have three very different compact sample-based boxes to consider now, from Roland, 1010, and Elektron. Watch for our full round-up.
