What is your best artifical speech and fully synthesized vocals

Artificial vocals have come a long way. I am interesting in hearing your best (or worst) fully artificial (vocals made by synth) vocals (or speech). If you can explain how you construct them and what hard/software you use.

some examples:

AI Voicing:
YouTube

Digital Cloning:
YouTube

Singer vs Virtual Singer:
YouTube

much appreciated, s wave

Personally I like the Talko stuff from Deladriere.

I've got the Flame Talking Synth, SynTech e950, and the Synthrotek Robotto. Flame is the only one that can make whole words, but I have a lot more fun sending Radio Music into Robotto, and making people cursing about their lawn into robot noise.

E950 is full of words, or am I miss understanding what you mean?

...maybe I'm the one missing something? I got it start counting once, but other than that, I can only ever get it to spit out syllables. I just went back and rewatched your video and sure enough it can, so I must be doing something wrong.

Also, Flame Talking Machine has a ton of words programmed in and a random sentence generator. That's how I knew my galaxy was full of radioactive cigarette music.

If I got another module every time I thought that a module I already had couldn't do something, I'd have about as many modules as I have now!

Below is a list of the letters, numbers, and words the E950 does. Maybe make sure you are giving it long enough gates and also set both the Pitch and Effect knobs to about 11 o'clock or so to start with . . . if you go too far with those settings you'll just get a lot things that sound like monsters gargling and squirrels squealing!

Excellent information and insight... I am learning so much thanks to all great stuff.
The hardware/programs are pretty mind blowing.

Ooh, thanks for linking that! And yeah, I think the gates I send it might be too short. I can only recall ever sending triggers to it.

Plaits and braids both have speech synthesis modes. I never got braids to do much more than vowels but plaits will say all kinds of weird stuff.

Probably some kind of vocoder is the route I would take if I were specifically after that.

Also for processing human vocals to sound synthetic look at ring modulators and frequency shifters as well.

Thank you I will look into the rings. What other ideas do you have for constructing human sounding voices from hardware and software? thx
