Yves' formant~ external. I don't even know what each of the ports
does... I know it needs 4 parameters, but don't know what types or
what for. Does anyone know of a reference I could look at to use that
extern to create a full vocal synth patch? I know formant synthesis is
the basis for that, but don't know where to go from there.

I'd also be interested in documentation for Yves' [formant~] object,
since I have been too lazy to find, acquire, and study the Smets

If you're just interested in vocal synthesis, you might want to
check out "ratts" -- available at:


... it includes a formant synth (klatt~) written entirely
in C, as well as various other text-to-speech goodies.
