Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9855991A1] The voice morpher creates a hybrid performance of a work, such as a song, using two separate encodings of the work. One of the encodings is reproduced with alternative performance attributes and temporal properties taken from the other of the two encodings. The voice morpher is particularly suitable for use with a karaoke machine as it enables the singer to actually sound like the original performer.
