  • Patent number: 9595256
    Abstract: A singing synthesis section for generating singing by integrating into one singing a plurality of vocals sung by a singer a plurality of times or vocals of which parts that he/she does not like are sung again. A music audio signal playback section plays back the music audio signal from a signal portion or its immediately preceding signal corresponding to a character in the lyrics when the character displayed on the display screen is selected by a character selecting section. An estimation and analysis data storing section automatically aligns the lyrics with the vocal, decomposes the vocal into three elements, pitch, power, and timber, and stores them. A data selecting section allows the user to select each of the three elements for respective time periods of phonemes. The data editing section modifies the time periods of the three elements in alignment with the modified time periods of the phonemes.
