competition, and compromises among the formants
that produce them.
Results showed that male listeners preferred female voices with high pitch, breathy voice and wide formant
spacing that correlated with a smaller body size, while females preferred to hear low-pitched male voices with low pitch and narrow formant
spacing that suggested larger body size.
The specialised formant
extraction algorithms used for the noisy data in the current context are likely to undergo several improvements in the future.
So if the goal of our aforementioned classically oriented voice teacher is to accelerate breath-flow and lower the closed quotient, lower the larynx and induce the "singer's formant
," then indeed, belting is antithetical to his purposes.
We also measured the parameters (pitch, intensity, duration, and formants
1, 2, 3 and 4) of the collected sounds using Praat 0.
synthesis does not use human speech samples at runtime.
The ideas [27-28,92] just described led to the development of a formant
extraction speech-processing strategy for electrical stimulation.
He said: "Operation Formant
has been designed to tackle anti-social behaviour covering all aspects from violence to vehicle crime.
frequency can be moved as required, so, for example, male voices can be converted into female ones, and vice versa.
For instance, Steinmayer describes the prefix peN-as a formant
for (1) an agent, (2) the name of a thing that does something, and (3) an abstract noun.
