Hi Cristina, (and anyone else on the list not familiar with the Kay system I referred to in my earlier mailing) Cristina wrote: >> Hi all you! mailing about digital audio processing.

And, by the way, being just a curious amateur; what is the >>general function of the Kay System? Thank You very much! Cristina Busk >>cristinabusk(at) >>Attachment converted: Macintosh HD:Cristina Busk.vcf (TEXT/MSWD) (0000AB52) The Kay system I referred to in my request for info. on portable recording devices is a specialised speech analysis workstation - we also have the ASL add-on to the system which allows us to resynthesise from the spectral analyses, even after manipulation of some of the analysis products (formant track information etc). However, this does need a very high quality signal to get a good analysis for accurate measurements and possibly even higher quality to get sufficiently good analysis to change the output parameters and still get speech quality synthesis such as we are using for our perception experiments (even then it's not easy!) Sheila PS thanks for all the help coming in. I'll try to summarise it later.
