You could have fooled me! Your explanation was great, and you speak better english than some of my friends.

I've been saving my comment until i had a chance to play around with this and it sounds great. Its some of the oddest noises i've heard coming out of a synth for a long time. If i can eventually make my Ds swear, i'll be a happy man :D

I found some more theory about Formant Synthesis here if anyones interested: http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/mar01/a ... nthsec.asp

Thanks CardiacTrance for explaining how to set up the patch! I've got the technique memorised now and plan to use it a lot...

Here's something I made tonight, can you tell what it's saying? http://www.box.net/shared/xriyp5rfr5

Was supposed to be "I like beer, I like beer", but "I like gear, I like beer" is even better!

Heh heh :D

It sounds really good by the way. Did it take you long to figure out?

After setting up the patch it usually takes a good 30 minutes to actually get it to speak a phrase like this. There's so many subtleties...

I tried the various patches (between the magazine image, cardiactrance's example and the patches in the denkitribe video) and it didn't go very well... I just couldn't get the same sounds... but I do have one pattern that says "rock" or something close to it so it wasn't time wasted :)

It seems EMI blocked denkitribe's video, idiots.
