Abstract (en)

The invention controls the operation of an emotion synthesising device (12), notably of the type where the emotion is conveyed on a sound, having at least one input parameter (Pi) whose value (Ei) is used to set a type of emotion to be conveyed, by making at least one parameter a variable parameter (VPi) over a determined control range, thereby to confer a variability in an amount of the type of emotion to be conveyed. <??>The variable parameter (VPi) can be made variable according to a variation model over the control range, the model relating a quantity of emotion control variable ( delta ) to the variable parameter, whereby said control variable is used to variably establish a value of said variable parameter. <??>Preferably the variation obeys a linear model, the variable parameter being made to vary linearly with a variation in a quantity of emotion control variable ( delta ). <IMAGE>
