Abstract GAVIS (Genetic Algorithm based Voice Imitation System), (1), is a system whose purpose is to find a set of effects to imitate voice signals. The system is based on Genetic Algorithms and Fourier Transforms. Although GAVIS proves to be effective, some deficiencies were found, and amongst them was the execution speed of the system. It is to improve such deficiencies that a new version of the system was designed and implemented. In this paper, we present the foundations for GAVIS’ construction and a new and improved design and implementation of GAVIS (J-GAVIS) and describe its new features.
