Wolfgang Palm has released version 1.1 of PPG Phonem, a vocal synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

The update features a new Multi-Voice-Mode.

PPG Phonem lets the user create expressive vocal synthesis beyond anything ever heard before. With its advanced routing system every aspect of the voice can be controlled and modulated in any conceivable way. Anything from a quiet whisper to a scream. Use the intuitive text to speech tool to make Phonem say whatever you want.

Although the PPG Phonem was originally designed to do just vocal synthesis, it turned out that the system is also capable of producing a wide range of universal synthsizer sounds. So we extended the parameter ranges and made everything accessible to the user, to take advantage of this fact.

Changes in PPG Phonem v1.1

  • New “Multi-Voice-Mode” which allows you to play up to 4 voices on one key and thus generating choir like sounds. All voices use the same preset, but have variations which makes the sound very natural.
  • Improved voice libraries – resulting in better text-to-speech utterances and voice transformation.
  • Resonator energy normalization function.
  • Other small bug fixes.

PPG Phonem for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available for purchase for 119 EUR.
