eSpeak Answering Machine Messages
I originally had eSpeak speaking some cold corporate disclaimer type message for an answering machine, but then I was re-listening to Midnight Maurders for the 100th time and had an even better idea....
eSpeak with a female voice reading the message.
Then in audacity, sampling the opening scratches off the original, then adding the backing track. (Cal Tjader - Aquarius if you're interested!)
I then had to slow it down by 8% or so get the right pitch and time as the original, then for the ending section time warping/stretching it to imitate the slowing down of the record on the original.
This came out really well, the only thing that could do with a bit more work is getting the voice to match the original a bit better, maybe mess around with the pitch? Needs to sounds less synthesized?
