Detailed Description

Four formant synthesis instrument.

This instrument contains an excitation singing wavetable (looping wave with random and periodic vibrato, smoothing on frequency, etc.), excitation noise, and four sweepable complex resonances.

Measured formant data is included, and enough data is there to support either parallel or cascade synthesis. In the floating point case cascade synthesis is the most natural so that's what you'll find here.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

stk::VoicForm::VoicForm ( void   ) 

Class constructor.

An StkError will be thrown if the rawwave path is incorrectly set.

Member Function Documentation

StkFrames & stk::VoicForm::tick ( StkFrames frames,
unsigned int  channel = 0 
) [inline, virtual]

Fill a channel of the StkFrames object with computed outputs.

The channel argument must be less than the number of channels in the StkFrames argument (the first channel is specified by 0). However, range checking is only performed if _STK_DEBUG_ is defined during compilation, in which case an out-of-range value will trigger an StkError exception.

Implements stk::Instrmnt.
