Alter/ego and timing

Postby lica » Fri Oct 23, 2015 4:28 am

Hi I'm new to Alter/ego
Have played around with it and read the manual.
I think it's really nice, but I think it's hard for the synth singer to sing in time?
Do you have some tricks to get it more tight in rhytm?

One issue users have with chipspeech/AE is the timing. As most synths need to be "quantized" on the grid to have them heard on time, vocals have to be manually adjusted because language doesn't follow the same logic.

Let's say you want Daisy to sing the word 'stereo' on beat 1.
If you sing it, you'll notice that it's the 't' that falls on the downbeat. So, it's sTereo, not Stereo, hence you have to place (play) the note a little early in order to have it sung properly. There's no way around it other that tweak it by ear.

The Wave Rate and Phoneme Speed are also controls that may help you get the pronunciation on the pace of the song you're working on, but it cannot preemptively play notes for you :)
