Sorry if this has been asked before, but will EWQLSC be able to reproduce the letter "R" as it is pronunced in languages like German and French?

Yes.

Unusual vowel or consonant sounds can be created by layering vowels or consonants in Wordbuilder.

Example: the French word “Louvre” can be created in votox like so: lOU vrgU

In the first syllable overlap O and U so they play together until note off. In the second syllable, overlap r and g for a French r.

We will also add "WordBuilder Central" to this forum shortly after the release of Symphonic Choirs. The purpose of this is to allow users to both upload and download WordBuilder files. Imagine you need a few sentences of random Latin for a video game project and you are on a tight schedule. At WordBuilder Central you will be able to find pre-edited Wordbuilder files like this that you can download in seconds. After a period of time there should be quite a database, which will save all Symphonic Choirs users a lot of time. We only ask that you also contribute files once in a while, if you are benefiting from the downloads.

Awesome. Can't wait to hear the demos and I'm sure that forum will be a life saver.

What about the German u with dots in words like "über" pronounced in the same way as "y"
in Swedish "yta" of Finnish "yritys"? LG

Just as a note... even though it is possible to do various "R" sounds, don't most choirs use the Italian "R" (flipped or rolled) for pretty much any language (French, German, English, etc)? That's the way I was always taught in college...

It is really cool that EWQLSC is this flexible, though.
