    Voder is a speech synthesizer (arguably the first speech synthesizer) from 1939. You can find clips of it on YouTube.

    @bio On their twitter they mentioned that it was somebody who was very important in the history of vocal synthesis - and what would be more important than the voice that started it all?

    The hardest part about doing the Voder is that recordings of it would likely be very old and they would need to do the voodoo they did with Dandy in order to cover all of the sounds to make a product that can sing. I'm sure it's not completely out of the question though.

    A Microsoft Sam voice would be cool, but Viens had difficultly contacting large companies before in the past (e.g. Chrysler).
    ----
    More back on topic, A/E voice imports are pretty cool, but I've been seeing a lot of people lately make a lot of assumptions about the ability to do that and the implications it brings, even though they want to implement it in the future. It may be kind of like UTAU because they asked about distributing voices and stuff through extractable files instead of installers, so that could be a possibility.

    Just thinking, if anything Microsoft Sam would probably be an official Alter/Ego bank, as he's post 1984, like they said when they were announcing it. I'm not too sure about the dates of the other chips though. (also since he is free to use in speakonia and windows XP)

    And yeah, I remember David saying that about voder on the live stream on crushers' channel. But since it's not completely impossible I'm pretty sure that they will do it at some point or other.

    I've been playing around with it for a few minutes and honestly it's a better Chipspeech demo than the actual Chipspeech demo

    I ACTUALLY HAVE TIME TO EXPERIMENT WITH THINGS

    Not sure why ALYS doesn't have her own thread so forgive me for posting it here. I saw someone comment on my status asking about an ALYS Voicebank Update :
    According to Voxwave, ALYS will receive a MULTI-PITCH Alter/Ego Voicebank Update this coming Monday. They would like everyone to use this new voicebank in any VOCALYS #2 Song contest entries, hence why I will not release my entry till Monday :smile:

    But then, doesn't that mean other Alter/Ego voicebanks may receive an update or get their plans changed to include multipitch then ?
