I have a project where I need to have a robot speak text,
what options/approaches are there?
– mac text to speech still exists so I could record it
– record a human reading the lines, direct them & then process their voice
– what else?
I’ll collect up all the replies (Twitter/FB/DS/etc) and post them
Not for this robot…
A recording of their current english voices (& me, trying to make it easy for the voice recognition)
Maciej Janasik was kind enough to send me a version of one the one HISSandaROAR Xmas present tracks – the kamikaze cicada, on which he had staged a really great minimalist intervention – have a listen:

I started re-organising my studio a month or two ago, with the clarity of vision that comes from being away from it for a few months…. One aspect of my modular synth that changed form was to move away from trying to mix within the modular. My Toft ATB 24/8 desk was too big to be at the front of my studio, especially with a sit/stand desk so I moved it to the rear of my studio, right alongside my modular synth and I have since found a way to install a rack of outboard kind-of floating above it… I still have mixers in my modular synth, but they are now destined for use as sub mixers – for audio and/or cv…. So the next step was to cable from the modular to the Toft desk, in a way that I could easily keep track when re-patching, without having to revert to a clean slate… Basically I wanted to be able to glance at a module output and see a number on the cable that relates to the channel on the Toft desk, so I began hunting for cable labels…
If I was making my own cables, or commissioning them, I would request numbered labels were used on the cable, maybe printed & sealed in place by clear heat shrink. But I instead bought a big bag of 1/4″ to 1/8″ readymade cables and had to stop & think about how I could retroactively label them. After searching online I came up with these options:
I’m not convinced the white cable ties with the plastic labels are the best idea, although I’ll give some a try with a permanent sharpy pen. The numbers were what I was really after, and I found these two options locally:
Network Cable Number Label 10Set(0-9) (100pcs), RJ45/11/12 Cable management
NZ$6 each pack from PBTech
JLP Clip On Cable Markers PLIO®-CLIP, 3.6 → 6mm, 512 Markers
NZ$64.65 for pack from RS Online
Will be interesting to see if they last… I’ll post some photos in a few days when I have it all configured…
