Plogue has announced the release of chipspeech, a vintage-styled speech synthesizer which recreates the sound of famous 80′s voice synthesis chips.

It is specially tailored for musical needs – simply type in your lyrics, and then play on your MIDI keyboard. It’s a true synthesizer, the sound can be extensively modified for easy and expressive performances.

chipspeech also features a circuit bending emulation, letting you not only recreate the insane and chaotic sound of a circuit bent TI speaking device, but also use it in a controlled, musical way.

chipspeech for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX/Standalone) is available for purchase for the introductory price of $75 USD/63 EUR/£50 GBP for a limited time (regular $95 USD/80 EUR/£63 GBP).
