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.
