TRAX - The Next Generation Voice and Sonic Processing Tools.
A suite of three ingenious processors using advanced technology, developed during
many years, by the sound analysis/synthesis team at IRCAM. These precision tools
provide truly innovative signal transformation algorithms allowing the user to alter
sound characteristics such as; pitch, timbre and duration, using a highly intuitive user
Transformer - Real-time Voice and Sonic Modelling Processor
TRAX Transformer is based on an augmented phase vocoder technology and a
cutting edge transformation algorithm, allowing for manipulating characteristic
properties of a voice such as gender, age and breath, and on any other sound;
expression, formant and pitch.
These voice transformation algorithms have already been used, with great success,
in international and French cinema productions. (Farinelli, Vatel, Tirésia, Les amours
d'Astrée and Céladon).
Cross Synthesis - Spectral Envelope Morphing Processor
TRAX Cross Synthesis utilizes a phase vocoder (the amplitude and the
frequency/phase spectra), to morph the spectral characteristics of two sounds. The
amplitude and frequency/phase spectra can be blended continuously and since the
features that are used here are strongly nonlinear, the sound morphing is nonlinear
as well, offering a way to create a wide range of new exciting and unusual sound
Source Filter - Enhanced Sound Filtering
TRAX Source Filter is based on a signal model decomposing the signal into a time envelope describing the energy/loudness contour of the sound, and a spectral envelope describing the spectral colour of the sound timbre. The energy contour andthe spectral colour of the source sound, can be continuously blended with the spectral colour and energy contour of an arbitrary filtrating sound, allowing transformation that extend well beyond the more common source filter morphing effect.
