xoxos has released Syng2, a voice synthesizer which uses four bandpass filters to produce formants in any spectrally rich signal, or using an internal oscillator.
The phoneme can be selected on a second MIDI channel, or preset words can be triggered.
Syng2 was designed as an intelligible, low-cpu voice engine for Breathcube 2. The articulation is intended to be more natural than other ‘robot voices’ using this method, with plosives slightly emphasised to be heard with music.
Syng2 is available as a VST plug-in for Windows PC and costs $25 USD. A demo version (4 notes per octave) can be downloaded.
