Device Overview

Name/Version: Taz Pro - Speech Synthesis for Ableton Live 2.01
Author: jeffcaylor  
Description: Taz Pro is a text articulating Max for Live device for Ableton Live. This device reads text in locator names in Arrangement View and clip names in Session View specially designated with a leading asterisk using the OS X text-to-speech voices loaded on your computer. Because the Mac OS X text-to-speech voices speak in different languages, Taz Pro is only limited by the voices you have installed in your computer.

If you name a locator (in Arrangement View) or a clip (in Session View) like this:

* Dynamite. In E

Taz Pro will speak that text back as Live’s transport playhead passes or the clip launches.

Taz Pro is Also a Cue List Launcher
Selecting a cue in Taz's CueList and pressing the PLAY button will launch the associated Arrangement View Locator or Session View scene.

aww man.
glad I looked at the specs before I hit the purchase button ;]
I would gladly pick up this gem were it available for Win 7!

Sorry, BlortBlort! I'd love to port this to Windows. I need to get my hands on a Win machine and figure out the Windows text-to-speech hooks.

Awesome product! TAZ makes adding speech into projects a breeze. Had some initial issues, but Jeff's customer service was prompt, professional and positive! If it doesn't work for you try adding the amxd file into your user library!
