Vallagar, well done. You deserve a pat on the back

I think the first effort is far superior to your most recent effort - your last one has far too much effect going on. My opinion is that the earlier version would be good enough for UQM - its almost right.

The last version was a bit more similar to the original Mycon voice than the first, I think, since it has more reverberation. At least, it sounded better when I tried in the game - anyway, I'll keep this in mind.

We haven't heard from the core team, though.
If you're reading this text, you're infinitely curious. Or maybe infinitely bored? No matter, you know that the line above means "Core team, show up!".

Oops, I had forgotten the text&sync for "We are the Mycon.". Added NOTE THREE - redownload.

I like the way this is heading; apart from the changes in applied effects, the additions seem to blend in quite nicely. I'll take a look at trying to reconstruct the effects used.

Message to core team: What is your position apropos the inclusion of the missing speech? How much improvement needs to be done on these sounds?

The core team is inexplicably very busy and can't answer the 'Caster right now, it seems. Maybe they're preparing to release UQM 0.8.0?  Cheesy

EDIT: Alright, just verified my mail, Paul's ready to work on "Only the source is so empowered" later this week(how nice of him!).
Meanwhile, we can try some other effects.

My opinion (and I'm not speaking for the core team in its entirety) is that it is still not good enough. But it does show promise.
What I think needs to be done foremostly is
  • Add noise. Remember that the goal is not to produce the best sounding sample, but a sample that fits in seemlessly with the rest.
  • Emphasise the high frequencies. Even better: analyse the frequencies of the original, and adjust all the frequencies in the new sample to closer match the original.
  • Perhaps shift the frequencies a bit (towards the high end of the scale). This may not be necessary if the high frequencies are emphasised. Conversely, emphasising the high frequencies may not be necessary if the frequencies are shifted.

Yeah, I think that's what should be made. I just looked at the sounds in a spectral frequency view and the added sounds have a significant frequency difference. Thank you for helping.

UQM pulls the 'text-only' version from the voice version, right?  So this means that if this fix is included it will fix both sides?

Happy days and jubilation!

Apropos, I've been playing a bit with equalization, and I can't get it to sound better. Maybe somebody else can help?

UQM currently only has one version of the text, which has been carefully edited to match the voice. Change the voice, and we'll have to change the text to match. Smiley

Valaggar has done a pretty good job already; I haven't managed to produce anything noticeably better (although this is mostly due to lack of time).
