I was thinking wouldn't it be cool if Pg Music's next big brake through and add on to BIAb could be vocal synthesis.
They could call it RealVoice. Lol.
Wow! That would be a dream come true for those of us who can't sing that good.
I've heard of companies working on this, but haven't seen a practical working program yet.

Hi Don,

Yeah I remember you talking about getting a new Dynavox speech device.
I didn't realize you were gonna try and get it to sing?
I'd love to hear more about that.

I remember years ago hearing a bunch of demo files that made the DeckTalk speech synthesizer sing.
It actually sounded pretty good for a synthesized voice.

Get to Know Endorsing Artist Robert Conti

Enthusiastic Endorsing Artist Robert Conti uses Band-in-a-Box backing tracks for many of the DVDs that he offers on his website, here:

As an endorser, he has this to say:
It is a genuine pleasure to be associated with PG Music. By eliminating the need for an external tone generator and including a comprehensive array of real combo and orchestral instruments within the software, Band-in-a-Box has once again set a new standard of high quality.
My staff and I are proud to recommend this product to patrons of my learning products, as the opportunity for any aspiring student to practice with an On Call Rhythm Section - 24/7, is immeasurable. Moreover, the sound of real instruments render the support tracks generated by Band-in-a-Box, as ideal for any live performance!

Thanks Robert!
