Have you check? Ircam : [Institute of Research Coordination Acoustics / Music], Paris, France - then Research and development then Analysis/synthesis ( that's the team behind the Farinelli project: How do you re-create the voice of a castrato through the fusion of two timbres? Carlo Broschi, called "Farinelli" (1705-1782), is acknowledged as one of the most famous castrati. Of course, we don't have access to any recordings of this unique voice. For the needs of his film, Gérard Corbiau turned to Ircam in order to re-create, through digital sound processing techniques, an original voice, which is beyond today's human capacities. ) -----Original Message----- From: Jim Stevenson [mailto:jims(at)EOS.ARC.NASA.GOV] Sent: Sat 28/06/2003 23:03 To: AUDITORY(at)LISTS.MCGILL.CA Cc: Subject: most imitative synth? What are the most flexible synths, hard-wear and soft-wear? I want to best imitate the voice of favorite speakers, from tapes of their speech.
