I found a *very* comprehensive table of formant data the other day and I had to put this together out of curiosity, and I ended up putting in a few hacks here and there along the way. Enjoy.

I always like formant filters. Ever since I've gotten my Kurzweil K2600 with it's MorphEQ, this has been one of my favorite soundshaping tools. I think your filter would benefit from steeper slopes, although that would incrase CPU usage.

This is quite nifty...I like the design. I think I agree with Ernest, a bank of oscillators to synthesize a vocal might be interesting. You could even put a noise osc in to get an 's' sound.

Well It's an interesting design. Have you considered puttin in a bank of sine oscillators instead of a couple of saws? Theoretically that would sound more vocal.
