Formant tuning refers to the process of adjusting the resonance frequencies, known as formants, in the vocal tract to achieve desired sounds and vowel qualities. By modifying the shape and positioning of the tongue, lips, and other articulatory structures, formant tuning affects the acoustic properties of the vocal output. Skilled singers and speakers use formant tuning to produce specific vowel sounds and achieve clarity, intelligibility, and expressive qualities in their speech or singing. It is an essential technique for controlling and manipulating the timbre and resonance of the voice.
