Parameter generation and synthesis

After phonetic interpretation, a parameter file for the Klatt synthesizer (Klatt 1980) is generated:
The following parameters are updated every 5 ms:

Source parameters:

Formants: Bandwidths: Parallel branch amplitudes: Not all parameters need to be controlled simulaneously. For example, the parallel branch amplitudes are used to shape the spectrum of frication noise, and need only be specified in the presence of fricative consonants and plosive bursts.
