Details A new voice morphing technology was proposed to easily synthesize intermediate voices between two voices. Conventional voice morphing method requires aligning two input voices manually. However, the proposed method can align two input voices automatically. Furthermore, a new voice conversion method without aligning was proposed to overcome the problem. In this research, we confirmed that the proposed method can synthesize natural morphing voices without aligning.
