I'm wondering how long it'll be before somebody does a Daft Punk cover of Harder Better Faster Stronger!

Thanks Jason. When Rej and I get the integration going with Caustic, it will become a more useful tool.

They sound REALLY good, whatever noise the was blends into the track anyway. What speech engine and voice did you use to make them? (I'm just putting together a blog post for Vocality and I'd like to show your track as an example)

Good luck with the release Bojeroo, we can talk about Caustic-Vocality integration in a few weeks once the dust settles on your end and I'm finished with a couple of things over here.

I'm working on a track with some TTS (I used FL for that) on Caustic Windows. Just dowloading your app and I will continue on tablet, to keep things caustic friendly.

Nice website! 

Unfortunately, I can't download Ivona TTS from my country sad. I will try with the SVOX trial version ..

It's weird that the Ivona

It's weird that the Ivona engine is not available anymore on Kindle as it looks like Amazon bought them(header on their webpage says "Ivona, an Amazon company".

Strange that they would extend the beta on Google/Android but not on the Amazon app store...

No idea why it crashes, but

No idea why it crashes, but you don't need to change the default TTS on your device for it to work. I've just left my default Google TTS. You can change the engine Vocality uses by pressing menu from within the app and going into Settings.

Haven't tried SVOX yet, the GPlay reviews weren't great. Try "Céline" from Ivona if you want a decent French female voice.

I'm sure Bojeroo can send you the APK (or publish on Amazon). He's in the UK, so he's probably sleeping right now.

That's strange Skarabee, I just downloaded Luc and Amelie to my wife's Galaxy S3 and they both worked fine.

Is it crashing when you go to enter the text, or go to press play? What's your device and android OS version please? I might have to give you a version with some debug output in to see of we can track this down.

If a popup cam up saying

If a popup came up saying "Complete action using..." and listed your installed engines, that's an android popup not vocality. If you haven't got the google engine installed, that might be why the popup came up.

As Rej said earlier, choose your engine in vocality by going menu->settings->text-to-speech engine and it should work fine. What was the other engine called btw?

My tablet is an Acer 500 with android 4.0.3. 

The app crashes as soon as I touch the text area. I tried  differents settings on Vocality, but no way. SVOX works in trial mode. GooglePlay don't allow me to purchase it from my country. In fact I only have access to free apps.

In Vocality settings, when I try to use Google voice, I have a message when I try to "install missing language...": no downloadable voice (aucune voix telechargeable)

A couple of things to test

A couple of things to test Skarabee, does it crash if you press in the speed or pitch value windows? Does it behave the same in both portrait and landscape modes? Thanks.

Crash on HTC One X

I’m on a HTC One X and it crash for me to. I can do any thing with it except typing something in the text window. Soon as I select the window the app goes down. I tried to reinstall the app and restarting my device but nothing seams to help. Sorry I can’t think of any reason for this.

FIXED!

Found the reason why this was occuring.  Lightbulb turned on when I realised that Skarabee probably has his device set with French as the default locale.

Basically, for users who have their device set up in a language/locale that uses comma (,) rather than period (.) for decimal numbers, this was causing the app to crash as it didn't think that 1,00 was a valid decimal for example.  I've now fixed this so that numbers are always forced to use period not comma.

I have published an update to the Play Store, which will hopefully come through to users in the next few hours.

Sorry for the inconvenience, I didn't think to test the app as if I had my device set up in another locale! Lesson learned!

Vocals

I'm interested in how you got the vocals to sound like a woman singing so well.  I downloaded the app, as well as the USA Ivona HQ voices for the TTS engine, and the sounds nowhere near as smooth as what you had in your mix.

Yeah, great tune. Seem to remember it had some lovely analogue arpeggios and distorted drums.

I'm using the stock English

I'm using the stock English US and UK voices in a track I'm working on. Since they're male and female is makes for a nice call-and-response effect. Very cool app. Is there a robot voice available for it somewhere?

If you're using the Google

If you're using the Google speech engine, then try the German voice on low pitch. That sounds quite robotic.

The Vocality App crashes on

The Vocality App crashes on my devices. (htc flyer android 3.0 and htc desire s with custom ics)

The app doesn't ask for tts at start, all fields are blanc and no selection possible.  when I enter text andhit the play button I get forced close. Installed TTS are google , inova and some more. 

greets...

EDIT: I'm sorry, I figured it out. I had to set the tts module manually in settings...

That sounds like it was using ivono to start with and that you didn't have any ivono voices installed. I've had emails from quite a few users who download the voice installers for ivono or svox but don't realise you then have to run that to download all the voice data.

If Google tts is selected it should behave fine. Does it still crash of you choose ivono as the engine?

To be honest I have no idea PQ.  I expect there are some free Text-to-speech programs out there for Windows, how good the voices are is a different matter...

 Hey I need to get your latest update to your app, and integrate it into my work here and put a plug out for you if you decide to make it a  paid app in the future.....

Keep me posted if you have new projects in the making, I'll be happy to hang with you on that and spread the word...
