Faust Awards 2018 to iPlug 2 !
The Faust Open Source Software Competition aims at promoting innovative high-quality free audio software developed with Faust, a functional programming language for realtime signal processing and sound synthesis. The competition is sponsored by GRAME, Centre National de Création Musicale. ...
International Faust Conference (IFC) 2018
International Faust Conference IFC18: July 17-18, 2018The International Faust Conference IFC18 will take place at the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz (Germany) on July 17-18, 2018. It aims at gathering developers and users of the Faust programming language to present current projects and discuss future directions for Faust and its community. ...
Faust Award 2018
Faust Award 2018: deadline June 1, 2018The Faust Open-Source Software Competition is intended to promote innovative high-quality free audio software developed with the Faust programming language, as well as development tools built around the Faust compiler itself. The Faust Open-Source Software award will be attributed to the best submission by an international committee of leading experts in the field. The competition is sponsored by Grame, centre national de création musicale. The winning software will receive a 2000€ price to encourage its authors. The results will be announced July 17, 2018 during the International Faust Conference in Mainz IFC18. ...
WebAudio wasm benchmark pages and tools
WebAudio wasm benchmark pages and tools allow to test statically generated HTML pages from Faust DSP. Audio generating pages in ScriptProcessor or AudioWorklet mode can be tested first. DSP CPU benchmark pages can be used to test the perfomance of wasm code across different browsers. ...
New Faust Editor
We are very happy to announce the online Faust Editor. It can be used to edit, compile and run Faust code from any recent Web Browser with WebAssembly support. This editor works completely on the client side and it is therefore very convenient for situations with many simultaneous users (workshops, classrooms, etc.). It embeds the latest version of the Faust compiler with an efficient WebAssembly backend and offers polyphonic MIDI support. ...
New Faust Logo
We are very happy to announce the brand new Faust logo! The logo is available in several variants (Full Logo, Simple Logo, Faust Award, and Made with Faust). ...
Performances of audio DSP code compiled in WebAssembly
Porting and running large C/C++ code base on the Web have been the subject of several competing projects in the recent years, from Google NaCl/PNaCl to Mozilla asm.js. Recently standardized WebAssembly language inherits from ideas experimented in both approaches, with the Mozilla vision finnally winning as Robert O’Callahan explains here. Coupled with the WebAudio API, running real-time audio code in the Web now appears to be an achievable goal. ...
Deploying Faust DSP on the Web
EDIT : we are at the Web Audio conference 2017, and it appears that the way we currently extend the ScripProcessorNode with Faust code is not the Right Way… Part of the post concerning the exposed API will probably change a bit in the near future… ...
Using a custom memory allocator
From a DSP source file, the Faust compiler typically generates a C++ class. When a rdtable item is used on the source code, the C++ class will contain a table shared by all instances of the class. By default, this table is generated as a static class array, and so allocated in the application global static memory. ...
Optimizing the DSP CPU usage
The Faust compiler has as lot of different compilation parameters to play with. Discovering them for a given DSP program is something that can be automated. Two measure_dsp and dsp_optimizer classes are available for developers to measure DSP CPU use directly in their code. Two more friendly faustbench and faustbench-llvm tools have been developed using them. They allow to discover the best Faust compiler parameters, to be used later on with faust2xx scripts, faustgen~ Max/MSP external or FaustLive. ...
- Faust meets JUCE
Faust WebAssembly backend
WebAssembly was born with the premise of creating a safe, portable and fast to load and execute format suitable for the web. WebAssembly its not a programing language but a compilation target with a text and binary specs. That means that other low level languages like C/C++, Rust, Swift, etc. can compile to WebAssembly. ...

Faust interpreter backend
A new ‘interpreter’ backend has been added in the faust2 development branch. It allows to execute Faust programs without using the LLVM dynamic compiler chain. ...

Faust Award 2016
Faust Award 2016: deadline June 1, 2016The Faust Open-Source Software Competition is intended to promote innovative high-quality free audio software developed with the Faust programming language, as well as development tools build around the Faust compiler itself. The Faust Open-Source Software award will be attributed to the best submission by an international committee of leading experts in the field. The competition is sponsored by Grame, centre national de création musicale. The winning software will receive a 2000€ price to encourage its authors. The results will be announced July 15, 2016. ...
Controlling with MIDI
Faust programs can be controlled using MIDI messages. Thanks to the metadata mechanism, all UI elements (sliders, button, bargraph…) can send and receive MIDI data. ...
Creating polyphonic instruments
Polyphonic instruments can be created by “combining” several voices using a specific architecture file, with the single voice described by a Faust DSP program. The architecture file takes care of dynamic voice allocation and control MIDI messages decoding and mapping. ...
Using the dynamic compilation chain
The dynamic compilation chain allows developers to embed the Faust compiler technology directly in their application or plugins. Thanks to the awesome LLVM technology combined with libfaust, the new library version of the Faust compiler, Faust DSP programs can now directly be compiled and executed on the fly at full speed. ...
Developing a new architecture file
Being a high-level specification language, the Faust code says nothing about the audio drivers, the GUI toolkit, or any other non-GUI interface to be used to control the dsp. It is the role of the architecture file to describe how to relate the dsp code to the external world. This approach allows a single Faust program to be easily deployed to a large variety of audio standards (Max/MSP externals, PD externals, VST plugins, CoreAudio applications, JACK applications, etc.). ...
