Famine 1500 manuals added.

Uploaded the Famine 1500 Owner’s Manual and Kit Manual and added them to the Famine page and manual repository.

The Double-Edged Deal.

We’re pleased to announce the beginning of the Double-Edged Deal:

If you refer someone to f(h), and they make a purchase (of a module, desktop device, or other such gear), they get a 10% discount on their initial order, and you get the same value in credit applied to your next order. These can stack indefinitely – recommend enough people, give me a wish list, and I’ll just start shipping gear to you as soon as the price is met – but they need to tell me who referred them!

Fever Dream – March 2022

It is time for this month’s themed composition – the Fever Dream!

These have been a lot of fun and have showed many interesting techniques and styles. I hope they also inspire and encourage others into sonic exploration. We need more sound!

There are two themes to choose from this time:

  • Bad news comes in threes.
  • The sound of green


Details:

Prize:

  • No prizes (yet) other than having fun and learning how to wreak havoc.

Eligibility:

  • Anyone who makes an entry that follows the stated rules is included (we reserve the right to exclude anything that may give us any legal or financial problems, of course, and solely by our discretion).

Rules:

Time:

  • Participants will have 2 weeks to compose a noise/experimental piece based on the given theme option(s).
  • Contest begins Saturday, March 19th 2022, ends Saturday, April 2nd at 11:59PM.
  • The compilation video(s) will go up sometime that week, depending on how long it takes to compile.

Themes:

  • Bad news comes in threes.
  • The sound of green

Usage of theme:

  • The theme must either appear in your piece at some point (it is up to the listener to recognize it, but your job to make it recognizable somehow) or form the structure of the entire piece.
    • Your interpretation of the theme is what matters here.
  • Only one theme is required, but you may use more of the available themes if you want to.

Composition:

  • There are two categories, so anyone can join in. Choose one of the following two:
    • INM as primary sound source.
      • Extra cred for INM + EXP only.
      • Those without an INM may use an IMP for extra-infernal divinity points.
    • Your choice of primary sound source, regardless of brand (If you do not have an INM or IMP).
      • Must be an analog modular sound source
        • A guitar or other electric instrument (i.e., with a pickup or transducer) is close enough.
  • Max. 2 external modulation sources.
    • Except for the case of IMP-only; use as many as you can patch in.
  • Max. 4 discrete patches, live patching is unlimited.
    • A patch is a completed routing setup. Stopping recording to change your routing counts as one patch.
    • Live patching is changing routing while recording.
  • 1-2 effects (stereo does not count as an effect).
    • For this  contest, an effect  is something external that you send your audio through to change how it sounds. Internal filters (such as those in the INM) do not count.
    • You can use as many Plague Bearers as you can access.
  • No sampling or post processing
  • Minimum length of 3 minutes.

Submitting:

  • I will need access to the files to post on the f(h) YouTube channel. Audio-only is fine, but please include it in a video wrapper (MP4, MKV, whatever). Mono audio is fine, but please save it as stereo to avoid one-speaker output. Keep levels at or below 0dB please.
  • If audio-only, please include some still image to represent your piece in the video.
  • It does not have to be professional quality, just try to get the best audio recording you can with whatever means you have – even a cell phone, just be careful with your placement and levels.
  • All patches must be documented and explained. Please list all modules used and their purpose. Brief explanations are fine, just let us know what to what and why for each connection.
    • Why? So others can understand how to do it too!

Crediting:

I need to know how to credit your submission. Please provide the name(s) you wish to be credited under and any links or affiliations that you’d like to be included. This can also include links to music or information pages such as Bandcamp, Soundcloud, related websites and social networking pages.

Sinner and Sound of Shadows v3 preorders open!

  • Sinner module kit: $84 each.

I’m doing things differently this time. Before, I often ended up buried in building modules and not having time to develop new ones. That sucks, so I’m trying out doing yearly batches – with the possibility of semiannual depending on demand. What this means, for now, is this is the only batch for this year.

Some goodies in celebration of the launch of Sinner:

T-shirts!

T-shirts are $15 each when purchased with a module, or $25 each separately.
The base shirt is Gildan 200 Ultra-Cotton.
Sizes: They haven’t been ordered yet, so tell me your size and I’ll add it to the order.

Stickers!

Stickers are $1.50 each.
The oval sticker is 3″ x 1.875″, the round is 2″ diameter.

Ordering:

Send me your order via the f(h) contact page here. Please include:

  • Name
  • PayPal email
  • Shipping address
  • Item(s) being ordered
  • If ordering t-shirt(s), please include quantity and size(s)
  • For stickers, quantity and shape – oval or round

Shipping is included for US orders, and discounted accordingly for international orders.

Timeline!
Preorders close on April 10th, 2022. Materials will be ordered that week, construction will begin a week later.
Assembly time is 4-6 weeks, depending on volume. I’ll post updates here if something changes for unforeseen reasons.

  • Item(s) you are ordering
