Abstract In jazz, scat singing is a phonetic improvisation that imitates instrumental sounds. In this paper, we propose a system that aims to transform singing voice into real instrument sounds, extending the possibilities for scat singers. Analysis algorithms in the spectral domain extract voice parameters, which drive the resulting instrument sound. A small database contains real instrument samples that have been spectrally analyzed offline. Two different prototypes are introduced, reproducing a trumpet and a bass guitar respectively.
