The UberDuck.AI version shows a massive improvement in terms of how cleaner and how much fuller the audio sounds. As such, I'd strongly recommend use of the Uberduck.AI version for anyone that wishes to produce any content using the John Parker Hammond voice. The difference is literally night and day. The worst of the "electronic" phasing that you hear on the original colab version doesn't appear to happen in the uberduck version.


Well, you can certainly tell the difference. So, I guess now scallenger will have to work on yet another version of Jurassic Time...

One of my all time favorite cut lines from Hammond's script. It sounds awesome, and the last part sounds so authentic!

I have no idea how but the AI actually made him saying "Deinonychus" sound sinister. Of course I had to spell it out phonetically as "Dinonikiss" :lol:

Another example of Hammond saying a complex dinosaur name that would sound great in a custom level

I'm having way too much fun with this :yum:

Those are quite good, I still get the impression that he gets "tired" after a few words, though.

While I am happy there is an improved version of the program, I won't be redoing it anytime soon at this point, if ever. Especially since there is already an improved version this quickly. The next time, it could be flawless. I also just have to focus my time back on more pressing things, unfortunately.

Hearing a computer recreate a dead man's laugh is... frightening :|

The UberDuck.AI version; while cleaner - sounds a lot less like him IMO.

Now that I have had time to play with it, I actually agree. Cleaner, but oddly doesn't sound like him. Now I feel a bit better about having already used the other version, heh.

I just found the uberduck site through different means, then came here, and I see you guys found it. It's fun to play around with.

So, two things:

The second UberDuck version I guess doesn't work anymore at all? It just takes me to a page to sign up for the website.

https://uberduck.ai/#voice=john-parker-hammond

As for the original one, at the link below, it now has an error immediately when you try to set it up. It appears to say that something needs to be updated in the program itself. I actually tried setting this up just on my end but it had no effect. I guess the person who created this program has to install it into the program themselves?

https://colab.research.google.com/drive ... ueQmxlnM04

This is what it says:
Quote:
ValueError: Tensorflow 1 is unsupported in Colab.

Your notebook should be updated to use Tensorflow 2.
See the guide at https://www.tensorflow.org/guide/migrat ... nsorflow-2.

Having tested the 2nd Uberduck Version, it goes straight in as long as you create an account on the site. Voice generation works normally. I've had an account for quite some time on there now but I can't say for sure if accounts have become required on Uberduck.

As for the Colab, I can't fix that as I only modified the back end of it to redirect to the Hammond. I have no technical understanding of the many inner workings of coding.

Oh okay, good to know! Thank you!

And aww I see. That's a shame about the Colab version. But at least we still have something.

EDIT: This is the new UberDuck link: https://app.uberduck.ai/speak#mode=tts- ... er-hammond
