This is the most general interface to the Klatt synthesizer. It provides access to all standard features, but requires the most hand entry of data, and a fairly good understanding of how the Klatt synthesizer works. If you are not very familiar with the synthesizer and its control parameters, you might want to look at the Vowel Synthesis interface or the CV interface (for creating consonant vowel syllables). The process used in all these interfaces is patterned after (and actually calls) the program gensyn. Reading the documentation for that program (via the link on its name) could be useful. Particularly look at the Frame Data section in the gensyn documentation which describes the format used for entering data below.
In this interface, there are three sections to fill out, however,
the first two contain default settings and values that may not need to
be changed. The three sections allow you to:
Each parameter for the synthesizer can be set to either vary over time or to remain constant. For most of our class exercises, we will only need to vary a few parameters consequently, most can be set to constant values and that will reduce the information you need to enter later on. By default, AV, AF, F0, F1, F2, and F3 are set to vary over time and all the other parameters are set as constants. You can choose to leave the default settings in the table below or switch on (or off) any parameters you choose.
