    ok ive got delay lama which is good but not really tweakable enough for my liking, so i was wondering if its possible to make a formant sound on a normal analogue modelling synth? if it is and someone knows how to do it could they possibly explain it to me? if its not possible to do it on this, can it be done on reaktor cos i should have that by mid summer.

    cheers

    How do you mean formant?

    formant is the fundamental frequency of a pitch, its why a C sounds like a C not a D :blink:

    If you've got Reason2, the malstrom has some LOVELY vocal formant wavetables. Sounds a lot like delay lama but obviously very very tweakable :Smile3:

    almost certainly not exactly what you want , possibly completed unrelated, but vaguely in formant territory:

    the waves ultrapitch allows formants to be shifted independently of pitch. fx not a synth but who knows what would happen if you pumped random stuff into it :Wink3:

    then on the synth front - by definition you could DIY with an additive synth like Virsyn Cube. I also suspect Tera 2 might have potential in this realm, being as it combines additive, subtractive, fm and several other types of synthesis in one... But I havent checked it out so I dont really know.

    MHC VoxFX and VoxSynth, almost any sort of formant sound u can think of plus an 'extra' vowel!! :Grin:

    You can also get a kindof Formant sound by using the Logic Spectral Gate on a thin bandwidth setting (about 1200-1400) BW Mod around 3.8% CF Mod around 8.5% and adjust the speed freq to get your shift.
