This paper presents new objects for MSP that provide highly flexible FOF and FOG generators in a real-time environment. These objects combine many of the features of earlier FOF/FOG objects for MSP with additional features, some of which were also part of the Csound implementation. The availability of these generators in MSP permits sophisticated and complex real-time control of aspects of this synthesis method at a level not available previously. Further work has been undertaken to link this work with PSOLA (Pitch Synchronous Overlap Add), permitting continuous transformation all the way between FOG synthesis and PSOLA synthesis resulting in more powerful and realistic transformations. Example patches illustrating these various features will be presented.
