Chipspeech is a vintage-style speech Synthesizer which recreates the sound of famous 80′s voice synthesis chips. It features 12 different voices, each with its own characteristic timbre. It is specially tailored for musical needs – simply type in your lyrics, and then play on your MIDI keyboard. It’s a true synthesizer, the sound can be extensively modified for easy and expressive performances. chipspeech also features a circuit bending emulation, letting you not only recreate the insane and chaotic sound of a circuit bent TI speaking device, but also use it in a controlled, musical way.
New In Chipspeech V.1.7
- emulation of the Voder by Homer Dudley
Originally conceived as an AI-augmented prototype exosuit for military operations in humanoid-hostile environments, Voder was hailed by the Galactic government as the weapon that would finally end the war. Unfortunately, development was rushed, the vocal apparatus was rudimentary (requiring a humanoid manual operator), and the AI was unchecked and erratic. Consequently, Voder developed its own agenda, turning against the government that created it and “employing” any persons it found convenient to as operators in its service, like cogs in the metaphorical machine.
