If I leave .lpc option , nothing happens

If I select .bin option a zero byte file gets saved.

 

 

Ah!  Sorry.. Ok I was only testing saving after loading .lpc files...  I found the bug, fixed it, and have updated the code & prebuilt binary.  Let me know if you have any other issues, problems, or requests.

Thanks Patrick, works like a dream now!


You have an "Excitation Only" check box, might be interesting to have a "Noise Only" check box ( produces whispers ).

I've always been fascinated by the Cybermen voices used in the science fiction BBC TV 1967, Patrick Troghton era, Dr. Who story "Tomb of the Cybermen"; they where the most scariest versions of the Cybermen ( in Black & White on a 405 line receiver). I spoke to the guy who created the voices and he told me that they sent a pulse/square wave to a small speaker which was placed in the mouth of the actor who then 'mouthed' the words to produce the effect. I've attached a .wav file from one of the 1967 episodes.

It would be good if you could re-create that effect. I think you've just got to set the Pitch Exciter to a fixed frequency. Have no "noise" and just use the vocal tract K filter. I think the pitch of the .wav file is around 1200 Hz although it would be nice to be able to set the fixed frequency to any value.

This can already be done by simply turning on "Override pitch" and setting it to 0.

 

...

 

I think a Cybermen style effect could easily be done just by applying a custom pitch envelope, which is something I plan to add to this at some point...  but just by doing Override pitch with a value like 100 sounds pretty close..  The main difference is in that audio clip you provided, there is a resonant filter thats opening and closing throughout the speech.

Slightly off-topic but if anyone wants to play the voices from Atari's arcade Star Wars machine...

Data is contained in MAME ROM "136021.107"

Here is a list of start and end addresses for the voice data.
Since the ROM loads at address $4000 in 6809 address space,
the offset within the ROM is just <address>-$4000.

4062-419B          ; use the force luke
419C-4240          ; remember
4241-42FB          ; i'm on the leader
42FC-4435          ; the force is strong with this one
4436-4576          ; red 5 standing by
4577-46C2          ; this is red 5 i'm going in
46C3-4802          ; r2 try to increase the power
4803-48DF          ; you're all clear kid
48E0-49D5          ; let go luke
49D6-4A58          ; (darth vader's rasping)
4A59-4B37          ; yahoo
4B38-4C49          ; i have you now
4C4A-4DB9          ; look at the size of that    thing
4DBA-4F30          ; stay in attack formation
4F31-502D          ; the force will be with you
502E-50A6          ; always
50A7-51A3          ; (bleeps)
51A4-52C7          ; (wookiee    growl)
52C8-54C8          ; i'm hit but not too bad, r2 see what you can do with it
54CD-557C          ; i've lost r2
557D-5746          ; great shot kid that was one in a million
5747-580F          ; i can't shake him
5810-58E4          ; luke trust me

I do not have a mac, but this sounds very interesting.

Is there any chance of ever seeing a pc/linux build of this?

Just how better is this tool compared to qbox pro?
