Post VirSyn Debuts CANTOR at Musikmesse
The human voice is the most sophisticated and versatile instrument, and now VirSyn is taking on the challenge of recreating it in software with CANTOR.


CANTOR allows you to enter your lyrics in plain english and then "sing" your lyrics instantly just by playing the melody on your MIDI Keyboard. Add expression with realtime parameters controlling vibrato rate and depth or even changing the character of the singing voice from female to male. All edits take effect in real-time for instant feedback.

But CANTOR even goes beyond creating realistic "human" singers. Many parameters have no relation to human vocals like "Metallize" which turns your virtual singer more into a singing Gong. The voice editor allows you to edit the character of your virtual singer by defining the base spectrum for vowels and consonants.


For those of you ever wanting to create your own alien language the Phoneme editor gives you full access to the atoms of the vocal synthesis engine. With this editor you can define the formant structure and the noise characteristic of each phoneme used by the vocal engine.
