I'm trying to get speech synthesis going on in pd... currently i use festival and manually open the wavefile, but i would like to change this so pd takes care of it all

I have the ratts extern built but can't get it to work.. I'm hoping someone has an example i can look at... I looked at ratts~, which is suppose to be a functional abstraction using the ratts external but i think i'm just not using it correctly..

anyways if anyone has any experience, please let me know!
