Production of /ga-ka/


I am making stimuli for an experiment. I am using SenSyn for UNIX to generate a /ga-ka/ continuum. I am attempting to make the stimuli similar to the one produced in the a website(http://www.asel.udel.edu/speech/tutorials/synthesis/Klatt.html). However, the site doesn't allow very fine changes, and hence I am forced to use SenSyn.

An example of a sound I would like to generate can be hear by pasting this code:

TIME = 000; F1=420; F2=1625; F3=2125; F4= 3250; F5=3700; F0=120; AV=0; AF=72 Time =10; AF=0
Time + 40; AV=72
TIME = 40; F1=700; F2=1200; F3=2600; F4= 3300; F5=3700; B1=90; B2=90; B3= 130; B4= 400; B5=500; AV=72
TIME = 180; F1=750; F2=1000; F3=2300; F0=90; AV=72
TIME + 20; AV=0

And checking F1-F5, B1-B5, AV and AF in the VAR/CONST Status grid.

My problem is that the SenSyn program, while using the Klatt algorithm, has slightly different variables (and maybe algorithm) than the website. Can anyone help me or give a suggestion on how to create /ga/ or /ka/ using SenSyn?

Thanks in advance,
