MAXMBROLA: A MAX/MSP MBROLA-BASED TOOL FOR REAL-TIME VOICE SYNTHESIS

By Raphaël Sebbe, Baris Bozkurt and Thierry Dutoit

Abstract

In this paper, we present the first step of a project that is able to perform both speech and singing synthesis controlled in real-time. Our aim is to develop a flexible application allowing performers to produce complex and versatile singing as well as speech. Thus, we have adapted an existing speech synthesizer, the MBROLA software, to real-time singing constraints. The work presented in this paper concerns the integration of the MBROLA speech synthesizer into the Max/MSP real-time environment through the development of an external object. We present real-time control functions of the object and discuss its limitations. We further discuss about perspectives in the development of MBROLA-based computer music applications. 1
