This paper discusses the use of a hybrid simulation in the investigation of a specific synthesis procedure. Its content is divided between two subjects: a time domain synthesis procedure based on Gaussian wave functions and a hybrid computer realization of the required operations. These topics are discussed adequately enough to serve as an introduction to the material; but insufficient data are presented to determine how the procedure will compare with other analysis-synthesis systems, such as the vocoder. To determine the practicality of an approach, both a synthesis and an analysis procedure must be described, realized, and used to process significant amounts of speech. This paper discusses in detail only the realization of the synthesis procedure and thus an evaluation of the approach cannot be made at present.
