About the Festival category

TTS Engine with limited singing abilities.

This is the general discussion category for anything relating to the 'Festival Speech Synthesis System’ software by University of Edinburgh. Smaller synths don’t have sub-categories so feel free to post loosely.

Festvox allows you to create voices with much effort. Not recommended, but an interesting read.

Flinger (Festival Singer) discussion also goes here. Flinger is an abandoned, slightly more capable singing addon for Festival. Flinger is no longer available via original sources but was forked on github several times in attempt to update it. The website is currently unavailable.
