xxAdobe showcases new speech synthesis app

05 November, 2016, 09:40:08 PM by shakey_snake | Views: 772 | Comments: 2

"Designed to be a state-of-the-art audio editing application VoCO can also generate new words using a speaker’s recorded voice. Apparently the software can understand the quality of a persons voice and replicate it from only 20min of recorded material."

xxOpus 1.2-alpha is out

03 November, 2016, 04:15:59 PM by jmvalin | Views: 832 | Comments: 2

We just released Opus 1.2-alpha. It's an alpha release for the upcoming Opus 1.2. It comes with many improvements, including:
  • Speech quality improvements especially in the 12-20 kbit/s range
  • Improved VBR encoding for hybrid mode
  • More aggressive use of wider speech bandwidth, including fullband speech starting at 14 kbit/s
  • Music quality improvements in the 32-48 kbit/s range
  • Generic and SSE CELT optimizations
  • Support for directly encoding packets up to 120 ms
  • DTX support for CELT mode
  • SILK CBR improvements
  • Support for all of the fixes in draft-ietf-codec-opus-update-04 (the mono downmix and the folding fixes need --enable-update-draft)
  • Many bug fixes, including integer overflows discovered through fuzzing (no security implications)

You can get it here. Please give it a try and report any issues.
