After holding a poll at kvraudio to elect one of 2008's commercial plug-ins as freeware, xoxos has made Syng2 available as a free download.
Syng2 is a voice synthesizer which uses four bandpass filters to produce formants in any spectrally rich signal, or using an internal oscillator. The phoneme can be selected on a second MIDI channel, or preset words can be triggered.
xoxos says that Syng2 was designed as an intelligible, low-cpu voice engine for Breathcube 2. The articulation is intended to be more natural than other 'robot voices' using this method, with plosives slightly emphasised to be heard with music. Pricing and Availability:
