Virtual Singer

Voice synthesis settings

Basic settings

Double-clicking on the singer's icon in the Virtual Singer palette opens the pre-defined voice selection window. In this dialog box, you can select another voice from the list and apply an octave shift.

You can also define a new voice and save it in a file.

Send us by e-mail any interesting voices you create, and we'll make them available to other users.

Using "Edit timbre" and "Edit effects" buttons, this window also lets you access the advanced voice settings.

The octave shift lets you change the octave of the sung part without modifying the musical symbols on the staff.

The "Try" button makes the program sing a simple sentence with the selected voice.

The "Play/Stop" button starts to play the frontmost document with the selected voice.

The choir size slider lets you specify that the voice will actually be composed of several choir members singing in unison. A value of 1 means this voice is a soloist.  The invisible lyrics command [choir:xxx] lets you change the choir size anywhere in the staff. Replace xxx with the choir size you want.  To improve the effect produced by this kind of choir, you can apply a reverberation effect to the staff (see chapter: Effect processors).

    Note: Changes made to the voice settings will only be applied the next time music is started.
