STSPEECH.TOS used in original Xbox sounds?

Postby junosix » Tue Jul 21, 2015 7:43 pm

I found a video where someone had ripped all the ambient sounds from an Xbox, and at 1:40 in good old STSPEECH.TOS takes a star turn for a few minutes, I'm sure of it. Not aware of any other speech synths that sounded identical?

When I have my first XBox, I thought the same.

But Microsoft’s Major Nelson explains that what you’re hearing is “public domain audio from NASA transmissions from the Apollo days that we tweaked for that sound”
