Applications

Max/MSP 4.5 Externals

MaxMBROLA_NR~ (optimized for 22kHz voices) Version 1.0 for Mac OS X
External object encapsulating main features of MBROLA speech synthesizer. In this version, the sampling rate of the database is not changed during the perform routine of the external object. If the object is created in a poly~ sub-patch with the down 2 argument (see Max help for details), the voice (works only for 22kHz voices) will be resampled by the Max/MSP environment, thus, increasing the quality and stability (see section MaxMBROLA~). It is compiled on Mac OS 10.3.9 for Max/MSP 4.5.

MaxMBROLA~ Version 1.0 for Windows XP
External object encapsulating main features of MBROLA speech synthesizer. It is compiled on Windows XP Pro for Max/MSP 4.5. Rem: the -2 error has not been corrected yet on this version.

MaxMBROLA~ Version 1.0 for Mac OS X
External object encapsulating main features of MBROLA speech synthesizer. It is compiled on Mac OS 10.3.9 for Max/MSP 4.5.
