Voice Synthesis using FormantsThe mouth and nasal cavity shape the sound of our voice just like a filter. In fact we can create sounds similar to the human vowel sounds using an impulse train and a couple bandpass filters. The filters are tuned to the F1 and F2 formant frequencies that have been measured from actual voices.
