Hi everyone.

I've made a cover-version of the "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" song by Elton John with the Eloquence speech synthesizer singing it, and I've played the music.

If you want to hear it,
you can download it here.

There may be problems with my Dropbox-link, but just write here, if you have problems downloading the file.

I look forward to hear your feedback.

Best regards:
Aksel Christoffersen

Oh, thank you.

I'm so glad you like it.
It was very funny to make the music and the Eloquence notes.

Ah nice, one thing I would have done though is use phonemes to more precisely control the pronunciation. There are a lot of places where it could have been useful there to have that done. Though when you do that, the problem then becomes using the app, if you write the files out with the app, they're sampled at 11K and it just doesn't sound as good. SO you have to record them externally and use the app to play it.

The timing has to be the most challenging part I'd imagine, I've never attempted this, or anything like it before, but I have a way I might approach it. I would probably import all the files into reaper on the same track, so I would have multiple items. I would then start aligning them, and splitting off syllables where needed, and moving them. I would probably enter the correct time signature and tempo into the project before importing the music track so that the reaper metronome would run correctly, and use that to help me place on beat. If I It would be very time consuming, and I generally don't do projects like that, not because I wouldn't enjoy it, but because I get way too obsessive over it. Even just editing normal audio, I might spend 5-10 minutes on a 100ms segment trying to get it to sound right, like preserving the cadence of the speech after I have made a change to the surrounding speech. So editing and stuff like that takes me far far longer than it should because I can't ever let anything go.

I agree with that about phonemes, but I don't want to do mutch about it right now.

If you are interested in, how I made it, here are the description:

First, I recorded the piano part on an old grand piano with and Olympus recorder. Then, I used the Olympus recorder and a mini-jack cable, to record the other instruments from my Yamaha PSR-E343 keyboard, with me playing on the keys, not midi. Then, I mixed it together on my computer with Audacity. And I used the Eloquence Speak Window to make the speech-part.

You did that in Audacity? I applaud your patience.

Coooooooooool! Rofl!
I laughed so hard when he said rea, son.. Hahahahaha!
Eloquence actually has kind of a Nice voice. I mean, his singing isn't amazing or anything, but it really isn't bad either, for being a TTS voice.

I fully agree on that.

I first thought of making the song with Dectalk, which song a lot better than Eloquence, I think, but I haven't access to a singing dectalk, and I don't know, how to write a singing script for it.

You can get the Eti Eloquence Speak Window by clicking here.

When the file is downloaded, then open it, and install the program.

This will install a SAPI 5-version of Eloquence on your computer, and place the Speak Window in a special directory.

Then, download this file, and place it on your desktop.

The file is a shortcut to the speak window, so just run it to get to the speak window, and you're redy to make Eloquence talking for you.

You may also download this file, containing some Eloquence songs in txt- and wav format, and a tutorial to make Eloquence singing, also in txt- and wav format.

I can't explain, how I made Eloquence on the beat, because it's a bit complicated, and I'm not so good at english. Sorry.

The link to the folder doesn't work, but I downloaded the 7z-file, and I think this is a very nice project.

I still doesn't know exactly, what you mean by "*adds to tts preschool album*", but if you're asking for my permission to put my song into the folder, I'll say yes.
