I used both Versions of your fantastic Formant VSTs with FL-studio 11 an 12. But now i have to work with Cubase 8.5 Artist (64 bit) under Win 10 64 bit. Unfortunately the Window freezes itselv and stops at all Cubase. Do You have an Idea how i can solve the problem? Or can yu make a new Version of on of this Vsts as an 64 bit VSt Type 3? I would be happy to work again with this INstrument. Of course i will donate the new version(s). Hardi (IN my Youth i build such an Formant in 3 big Cases with electronic Sequencers)

Hi there, I remember Elector as it was called in the UK in the 70's. I used to get it when I was a teenager at school. I was fascinated by synts, but could not build one until I became an apprentice and could afford to build one. I built the Maplin 3800 based on the ETI 3600 of around the same era. I never got it to work properly, and I still have it 30 years on in my loft waiting for one day when I have the time to sort it. I love the introduction of soft synths, I've dabbled with the Minimoog and ARP2600. I've recently dabbled with your Formant. I think the Formant is a better soft-synth than the others. I will be donating as I now see that you have developed a sequencer for it - Excellent!!! I use a Novation Remote 61sl programmable midi interface with all the soft-synths I use. It has 24 knobs & sliders and 24 buttons. It's a cracking piece of kit once you've sussed it. Takes a lot of learning to use it to it's full potential - I have not got there yet. Keep up the projects!!

This is great. I have just come across this site. I built a Formant when I was at university in the 70s. I am RIGHT NOW resurrecting it and putting alongside some Doepfer and Oakley Modules. The Formant modules all need work to get going again. I'm going to start with checking joints aand replacing the capacitors. I look forward to understanding what you have here and moving forward with it. Stu
Answer Great hope you manage to get everything working again, I sadly demolished mine a year after I Build it.

Hello! I loved Formant Classic and I am quite disappointed that there is no noise or random generator module in the advanced version.
Answer Noise is internal generated and can be selected at the terminals. With the sample and hold module you can generate random signal

Is there a chance to make it more real with having real pots and switches, interfacing to the PC via USB or serial port, for setting the pots ( and switches ). Then you could set up a scenario and save it to play without the hardware later - and share. An additional switch could switch between internal and external - this could be on the external only?

I have been following the articles in the magazine (In the Netherlands called "Elektuur"), and was determent to build one myself. However - financially it was not possible at that moment, and by the time I had enough money a lot of the components where no longer available. I really love the "emulator" of this classic. (P.S. - I would like to donate, but unfortunately I do not own a credit card. I do have a pay-pal account, but do not know if that's sufficient). Anyway - good job. Nice to see this old classic still is alive and kicking..

Very Nice job. I built the Formant when it came out in Elektuur amd it took me over a year to complete. And it was expensive :) Probably the most expensive parts were the HAL transistor and the 4-pin Fairchild voltage regulator :). One comment on the English in the comment form: it is "yourself", not youre self and "your field of interest" :)
Answer Corrected the spelling mistakes. Please don't read the rest of my page :)
