Real-Time Performance Controllers for Synthesized Singing
A wide variety of singing synthesis models and methods exist, but there are remarkably few real-time controllers for these models. This paper describes a variety of devices developed over the last few years for controlling singing synthesis models implemented in the Synthesis Toolkit in C++ (STK), Max/MSP, and ChucK. All of the controllers share some common features, such as air-pressure sensing for breathing and/or loudness control, means to control pitch, and methods for selecting and blending phonemes, diphones, and words. However, the form factors, sensors, mappings, and algorithms vary greatly between the different controllers. Keywords Singing synthesis, real-time singing synthesis control.
