Jump on in! First, I recommend you download Mideast128 Theater and fly around some at different airbases/airstrips to hear what it sounds like in the game - I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. From my perspective, the clones are certainly good enough that there is no loss of immersion.
I’ve provided pretty much everything you need in terms of instructions, download links, and tools needed, so give it a go!
I’d be happy to help out @Mav-jp whenever he is ready to work on improving the sound for the next iterations of Falcon BMS. Having more folks who know how to use the tool can only help. PM me if you have questions.
I am contemplating whether or not I want to try to train the synthesizers using a different corpus of readings (LibriTTS) to see if I can get the synthesizer to produce better recognition with some degree of the ability to recognize punctuation. That is about a month-long effort (because I’d have to train the new “baseline” synthesizer to ~300,000 steps from scratch - that alone would take a week, then single-voice train all 14 Falcon voices again), with no guarantee it will be any better at all. But I can’t tackle that until I finish at least the first half of my TE project - it will take me another 2-4 weeks for that.
