I have been interested in purchasing the singing synthesizer but controlled myself because the starter pack of the only real option, Vocaloid, costs over 200 Euros. After looking for the free software on the Internet for some time I came up with Sinsy, the online HMM-based Singing Voice Synthesis System (see the picture above). It converts xml.files into wav.files. In order to do this you can write the notes and lyrics in MuseScore, which is free notation software. When you are ready with your song you export it in an xml form to your hardware and from there you upload it to Sinsy by clicking the Selaa –button. When your song is uploaded to the Internet you should click the Send button. If you are happy after listening with the result you’ll save it in a wave form by clicking the wav-title.
The Lyrics Made with MuseScore
This song is an old Finnish folksong in which K. Rautio has written the lyrics. It was very popular song at school and it begins: “I know the place dear, tranquil and wonderful”. We, the pupils of the Vartiokylä Elementary School in Helsinki, sang it with our own words while transporting to the school dentist clinic. At least then we felt that school dentist were too rough because we suffered even from pain and bloodshed. Perhaps it was only a question of drills which didn’t use water at those days but some water was needed so that the drill bits didn’t run hot. You can rely on that we waited those swigs of water while sitting in the chair of the school dentist.
The Result on YouTube
I know the place terrible,
The chair of the school dentist.
He will destroy your sweet teeth
And your gums eradicate.
