Virtual Singer

Voice synthesis settings

Timbre settings


To be able to control the advanced settings effectively, you should understand the concepts of phoneme and formant (refer to the chapters on Voice technical background).
 

 This window allows you to modify the singer's voice timbre.

  • A set of sliders
  • lets you shift the frequency range of each formant. A value below 100% shifts the formant toward the low-pitched frequencies, a value above 100% toward the high-pitched ones.

  • Bass/Treble
  • is a filter to increase the bass and treble frequencies of the voice output.

  • Gain
  • The above settings can soften the overall power of voice output. The gain slider allows you to compensate for this artifact.

  • Advanced settings button
  • The above settings modify all phonemes globally. It is also possible to change the rendering of each phoneme individually. As you may notice, each singer has his own personal accent, his own way of pronouncing certain phonemes. It is therefore possible to refine a voice by replacing one or several phonemes with user-defined ones.
