#179 multi-channel voice-component output for DSPs, mixing or debugging

add command option to split voice into multiple channels?

  • voice-tone
  • voice-tone-roughness
  • consonants voiced
  • consonants unvoiced
  • breath

(time/pitch stretching, noise removal, compression, remastering)

if not, have to manually craft multiple voice variant files to maybe emulate


[espeak-ng:master] New Issue Created by cmrdt:
#174 Parse into formatted input/output

to help readability (custom ASCII phonetic multi-glyph symbols hard to read) color-coding syntax highlighting to assist readability &debugging

maybe making the RGB color a function

maybe https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/YUV or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lab_color_space

maybe also support for IPA input with https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Phonetic_Alphabet#Diacritics_and_prosodic_notation (more/less round, voiced, central)


[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Issue #175 GUI for real-time custom voice-variant parameter tuning
By cmrdt:

maybe interface GUI also similar to formant.tcl demo in (install active-tcl8.4 also) http://www.speech.kth.se/snack/

[espeak-ng:master] New Issue Created by cmrdt:
#178 upgrade internal audio quality (sample rate and bit-depth)

also in espeakedit (not ng) the resampling quality seemed to be so-so (maybe not sox's fault, maybe command-line-settings) but resampling from a low-quality source-wav file isn't the same as starting from one of higher quality (lower rates lack higher frequencies)

default currently is 11025×2 Hz 16-bits maybe increase to (18×2)kHz+ and 32-bit-float as compile option; & rather do downsampling from higher quality if need be (update syllables containing high frequencies: s f z ʃ ʒ t k θ ð v d ) aka syllables that people (old or hearing loss) may have trouble distinguishing

and if using sox use best-quality sinc option, max precision
