Singalong-a-Yamaha

Yamaha have developed software that can emulate a singing human voice. The software uses a database of several hundred recordings of vowel-consonant combinations and can produce a voice that sings in English or Japanese. The software also overcomes the unnatural sound of synthesized speech by altering the frequencies of sounds when they are combined. Yamaha plans to release the software early next year and expects it to sell to record companies worldwide. Yamaha Web site.
