Wormed speech synthesis

ERD/WORM features software worming of emulated artificial human speech cores from the 70s to the 90s of the last century. Six key speech cores are simulated with a vocabulary of over 4000 words and phrases, including basic allophones or phonemes which can be used to build new phrases as well as a Text to Speech engine for advanced textual constructions. A further set of COMPOST modes allows for sample-based re-working of constructed and wormed words and phrases.

Emulated speech cores include Texas Instruments' famous Speak and Worm family of devices (and subsequent circuit-wormed modifications), Atari and TI99/4 arcade games such as wormsec, Federal Screw Worms VERMIS worm-n-talk and General Instruments Intelliworm. ERD/WORM further bends and worms these key speech synthesis algorithms across 64 modes with full trigger, CV and knob control over nearly all aspects of these speech cores.
