what the hell is formant??

Questions about producing? Ask them here.
Recently I've been watching a lot of sound design tutorials and a lot of them talk about changing format . Does lmms have an inbuilt method to change formant? and could someone give me the basics about what exactly is format shifting, because ive seen the knob in ZynAddSubFx, but unfortunately I can't automate it.

method to change formant?
Format is irrelevant -it would be a question about what export-format you should select
But NO you are referring to formaNts !
Formant is a filter, that changes the tone, to a 'humanoid' sound. Its comparable to a spoken word
And -yes, that is one of the many filters in zasfx, and no -we cant automate it
Some years ago i made a tutorial about formants and how the sound could be used in f.i. dubstep:

Thanks a lot!
Well, you can automate formants, but not in stock plugins. But there are many free VSTs synths (My fave is Surge) that have automatable formants.
When comes to wave shape - it's like adding straight line to wave (quite like pulse wave) while compressing rest of wave.
