Hi Tobias,

thank you for posting this. Since I would be interested in this kind of things, I wonder wether we can discuss these aspects of list.

In particular, I’d like to know what tools you used to create this song as well as getting the English voice when it is released. Together with my friends, I run a non-profit web radio and we would be interested in using this kind of tools: we tried using vocaloid, but it is not completely accessible and it lacks support for Italian (our native language) in addition to being really expensive for us.

Let me know if you could be interested in discussing this sort of things!

In my master thesis[1] I wrote about about speech synthesis using modern algorithms. I evaluated several algorithms and wrote an implementation of an MBROLA clone that I released under GPL v3. It is based on WORLD[2] by Masanori Morise, which has been used in VOCALOID clones such as v.Connect-STAND[3]. Next step will be the creation of a multilingual voice database that supports German, English and Japanese. I also prepared a Debian source package which will import in a git repository soon. I use "gbp create-remote-repo" to upload the package to alioth.

I did not create the song, it was created by a Japanese user using the free program v.Connect-STAND using the Namine Ritsu Connect voicebank. It could be better to use a sound project list.
