Vocal synthesis

With Cantor you can enter lyrics in plain english and "sing" your lyrics instantly just by playing the melody on your MIDI Keyboard. Add realistic expression with realtime parameters controlling vibrato rate and depth or changing the character of the singing voice from female to male !
But CANTOR even goes beyond creating realistic "human" singers. Many parameters have no relation to human vocals like "Metallize" which turns your virtual singer more into a singing Gong... The voice editor allows you to edit the character of your virtual singer by defining the base spectrum for vowels and consonants. For those of you ever wanting to create your own alien language the Phoneme editor gives you full access to the atoms of the vocal synthesis engine. With this editor you can define the formant structure and the noise characteristic of each phoneme used by the vocal engine.

    CANTOR 1.5 is a major upgrade incorporating a completely revised vocal synthesis engine. The new engine makes it now much easier to produce intelligible vocal lines.  This was achieved with an improved filter model and a new kind of rule based phoneme sequencer which adapts the phoneme transitions according to the context inside a word.

    This is horrible. You can't use this to make songs. The human voice is bad. It sounds very metallic. For €349 you can buy an expensive mic instead.

    Horrible. To years light of which it will be the great transformation of the human voice. Most expensive!

    This could be a great product, but €349 is an exorbitant price. I can't afford to find out at those rates.
    I like the demo, so I am especially sad. :-(
    I _need_ this software. I already have the Classic app MacSinger, and can tweak TTS with vocoding apps as well. There is also a plugin out _toda_y for Harmony/Melody Assistant that performs the same function. Those apps are ALL shareware.
    I'd pay $50 or so for this Cantor, but not $400, or whatever the exchange rate is today.
    Developers:
    Lower the price and make this a virtual instrument plugin for GarageBand and you'll hit the jackpot.
