View Full Version : Problem w/ C4 'N' consonant in Altos
03-10-2006, 09:12 AM
Could someone else check this out and see if they're hearing the same thing I am.
I typed in the word rain (phontic: rEin). Now play C3 and it sounds good. Play C4 and the N sound on release sounds really off, like it pitches up.
Anyone else hear that? (or did I miss something?)
(ps. the Alto patch didn't matter, happens on all of them)

I don't like explaining what I'm hearing :) ... here's a small .zip file with an MP3.
First is C3, you can hear the nice transition to the N at release.
Next is C4 and you can hear the jerky transition.

I don't think the pitch is far off (even after listening to your example). If you just type n in wordbuilder and compare octaves, it sounds pretty much on. What I do hear is that the transition is different in one octave than another. This is probably because these sounds aren't stretched, but re-recorded for each pitch, meaning it's not precisely the same sample. In this case, it causes the 'n' to pop out more when playing the high C. You may need to move the n a bit left in the time editor, or lower its volume to sculpt the word more to your liking. That's what worked for me.

Adjusting the volume worked very well. I made the N longer but then took the volume down to about 30% starting half-way through to the end. That seemed to work well.
