Day 2 - Friday the 13th 
2:45 An Introduction to the Synth-A-Modeler Compiler: For Modular and Open-Source Sound Synthesis using Physical Models - Paper Presentation

(45 min) Edgar Berdahl, Julius Smith » Location: Campbell Recital Hall
The tool is not a synthesizer - it is a Synth-A-Modeler! This paper introduces the Synth-A-Modeler compiler, which enables artists to synthesize binary DSP modules according to mechanical analog model specifications. This open-source tool promotes modular design and ease of use. Leveraging the Faust DSP programming environment, an output Pd, Max/MSP, SuperCollider, VST, LADSPA, or other external module is created, allowing the artist to "hear" the sound of the physical model in real time using an audio host application.

Day 2 - Friday the 13th 
5:15 FaustPad : A free open-source mobile app for multi-touch interaction with Faust generated modules - Paper Presentation

(45 min) Hyung-Suk Kim, Julius Smith » Location: Campbell Recital Hall
In this paper we introduce a novel interface for mobile devices enabling multi-touch interaction with sound modules generated with FAUST (Functional Audio Stream) and run in SuperCollider. The interface allows a streamlined experience for experimentation and exploration of sound design.

Day 3 - Saturday, April/14 
3:45 Signal Processing Libraries for FAUST - Paper Presentation

(45 min) Julius Smith » Location: CEMEX
Signal-processing tools written in the FAUST language are described. Developments in FAUST libraries, oscillator.lib, filter.lib, and effect.lib since LAC-2008 are summarized. A good collection of sinusoidal oscillators is included, as well as a large variety of digital filter structures, including means for specifying digital filters using analog coefficients (on the other side of a bilinear transform). Facilities for filter-bank design are described, including optional delay equalization for phase alignment in the filter-bank sum.

The schedule is a major guideline. There is no guarantee events will take place at the announced timeslot.
