[espeak-ng:master] New Issue Created by elspru:
#458 Musical Intervals for formants

Hi

I'd like to update the vowel formant frequencies to be more pleasant sounding, by getting them to conform to 31tet musical intervals.

for instance a in the en vowel chart would be best as

(instead of 904 1320 2700)

880 (A5) 1316 (E6) 2632 (E7)

which correspond to perfect fifth and octave intervals.

i've checked and all vowels seem to conform to some musical intervals. however i don't know which files need to be modified for me to see the effects in the voice output.

help would be appreciated thanks.

All I ask is that Espeak does not sound like its just attended Choir practice for a welsh male voice choir! :-)
