# day 25 looptober
Thinking about: melody. the opening to Appalachian spring. transformation.
Breathy alto in the morning
Confident tenor in the afternoon Grounded bass in the evening Misunderstood were-bot by midnight
# voxtober # vocalsynthesis
Off the top of my head, what's being modulated:
Tract shape (this gives phonemes of various characteristics)
Glottal tenseness (how breathy it is)
Crossfade between glottal signal and distorted FM oscillator (to get talking robot sounds)
Pitch (kind of obvious, but it too is nothing more than a signal like everything else here).
And that's it, really. Just scratching the surface here.
yay that was the intent :) I'm glad it came through! @ futzle
is this DWM? reminds me of some of Cylob's stuff @ paul
oh here we go. that's the stuff. @ sean_ae
yeah he's mindblowing imo @ paul
will have to give this album a proper listen today. do you have any idea how he's synthesizing/controlling the vocal-like sounds? @ sean_ae
he built a whole system in supercollider, i think he did/does all the sequencing in there. his more recent vocal synth bits sound more developed and realistic (eg this one @ paul ) but there's always something weird going on, he never goes full vocaloid https:// cylob.bandcamp.com/album/place holder
wow that's very impressive. it's a great sound aesthetic as well for synthesized singing. real, but not too real. @ sean_ae
Lol I may have to borrow "never go full vocaloid" at some point.
@ sean_ae Cylob is so good. @ paul I didn't know that he's using/he used SC
@ Lime he's been on analogue stuff again for a couple of recent things but most of it has been sc since late 90s afaik. he plays gigs with sc as well, he put some of them on his bc page recently, from what i rem they're more soupy than his recorded stuff @ paul
right! a huge perk of synthesized voice. This really fascinating movement towards and away from the Valley sort of falls in your lap. @ cb
the idea reminds me a little of some of aphex twin's stuff, esp on syro where there are vocals, but it's unclear if they are human or not. Love that!
yeah syro has so much of that. Great album. It takes a LOT of processing before a voice stops being a voice. Our brains want to hear voices in everything around us. @ cb
