Re: Matlab implementation of Klatt synthesizer


Is this synth current?

If not, what is better now?

Do any of you know of modern synths that can immatate the freq spectrum sound of a recorded voice?

Dear List,

Does anyone have a good matlab implementation of the Klatt synthesizer (see ref below)? And if so would they be willing to send me a copy of the code?
