Informant enables you to explore formant synthesis, shaping and sequencing.
Simple speech can be programmed but it is not intended to be a “singing synthesiser” as there is no text to speech provided. If you want a singing synth I would suggest using a vocoder like the Quilcom Bluesky for example. This can provide immediate and intelligible results for any input speech.
The idea of this instrument is to explore a system that can use the many parameters of speech, resonant sound boxes and tubes to create interesting new sounds, musical and otherwise.
Includes a user reference, 2 formant charts and background documents including information and patent regarding the Yamaha FS1R, which inspired this work.
