Yeah this is exactly why I don't feel so comfortable mixing this AI voice with his real one. That and the sound quality still isn't quite there. But like the creator of this AI said, give it a few years and maybe it could...

As I talked with Scall the other day. This is really cool, but be careful how to use it. It is an AI voice that sound like someone else, even if the person is dead. There can still be legal stuff with it, specially in the future. And worth remembering is that David is still alive and sound like Richard, so I'd say remember to mention if you use this in mods etc and it is not his real voice. :)


It essentially falls in line with the ethics side of things. People that clone voices on youtube usually declare somewhere in the description that the voice is a clone and they credit the original actor. They also usually link to the TacoTron 2 information page. To my knowledge, there hasn't been any takedowns or legal ramifications regarding the cloning of voices. (god help them once the technological singularity gets hit circa 2045-2050 cause once that happens, the voices and highly likely far more will literally be cloned themselves by super advanced AI's far superior to what we have now in minutes)

I find these AI voices to be quite interesting, even if they're not quite there in terms of realism. Wouldn't consider them quite high-quality enough yet to be of use for much, though.
I do agree with the ethics debate - I recall seeing a video where they got Shaggy from Scooby-doo to say some things that Casey Kasem would never have said via one of these AIs. I don't have this problem with voices which are made specifically by actors for the purpose of being used for these AIs, but I find it hard to believe that these "learning" voices that copy other people without their permission would go over well with many of them.

So, the people have spoken on the Twitter poll, and a bonus track(s) will be made instead of redoing the entire memoir! As I mentioned earlier in the thread, I agree that this is the best option, at least for the time being. A new edition just came out last year, and maybe in a couple years time the voice tech could improve and mesh better!

Out of 43 votes, 41.9% wanted a redo, whereas 58.1% only wanted a bonus track. So that's still a large number of people that wanted a redo, definitely keeping it in the realm of future possibility. But sorry guys, this election wasn't rigged, so we gotta move on. ;)

from what i've heard in the youtube link, there is a similarity in some aspects, but there are differences that are really making it easy to discern that it has been synthesized. The diction is ok, but there is a tonality that remains perfectly unchanged in his depiction of kills and even when sitting at a crappy business laptop you can hear the difference between audio oscillations from his real recording and the synth version. besides, other than for humorous attempt, the character of hammond doesnt seem to be having such malicious conversational skills. He has just been shown as too jolly and childlike to be giving these lines. i cant put my finger exactly on the term, but i'd say that there is a note that the voice doesnt drop below and it makes the clone version noticeable as such.

Yeah the discernable difference still is why I am glad the majority of people would just want me to assemble his unrecorded lines separate from the recorded ones. At this current time it will still stick out a bit. But I disagree that the voice doesn't come off with Hammond's tone. It VERY much does match his tone from Trespasser since the recordings used are literally from them. I have always loved this more somber take on his character that is present at times in both Jurassic Park and The Lost World, but I think most people think of his spirited "Welcome To Jurassic Park!" style of talking VS something like when he talks about "Petticoat Lane". Trespasser is like 45 minutes of purely "Petticoat Lane". So while it doesn't capture that spirited part of his personality much, it's still authentic to a point.

This is really cool.

I spent some time reading some lines i had planned for my project and i've got to say its a bit scary how accurate they sound. You need to tweak the spelling a bit to capture his unique pronunciation for certain words, but man this is going to be handy one day!
