Formant-based synthesis of singing
2007 (English)In: Proc Interspeech 2007, 2007, 2- p.Conference paper (Other academic)
Rule-driven formant synthesis is a legacy technique that still has certain advantages over currently prevailing methods. The memory footprint is small and the flexibility is high. Using a modular, interactive synthesis engine, it is easy to test the perceptual effect of different source waveform and formant filter configurations. The rule system allows the investigation of how different styles and singer voices are represented in the low-level acoustic features, without changing the score. It remains difficult to achieve natural-sounding consonants and to integrate the higher abstraction levels of musical expression.
