If I recall correctly, it's better to find the log of the amplitude of the 
fft, and then perhaps do fft again, before trying to find such timbral 

an amplitude-wise log means that the spectra of filters add up instead of 
multiplying. That's supposed to make them easier to separate.

and the 2nd fft is supposed to make it easier to separate the vowel 
filters from the base pitch.

but I never tried any of that, or maybe I tried making a patch and then I 
didn't really knew how I'd use that and gave up... something like that.
