Connecting to a Compute Server

1.  The Compute Server is where Altered Studio processes the voice synthesis.

2.  On the Account page you can confirm your Compute Server details on the middle panel.

3.  If you are enjoying a trial of Altered Studio then you should enter the Compute Server address which was provided to you in the welcome email in the Connection details field. Please contact Altered if you do not have this.

4.  Alternatively, if your enterprise is providing a hosted Compute Server, this server address should be entered in the same field.

5.  The Remote servers panel allows you to save the details of one or more remote servers by clicking the     button. Once saved these can be quickly added to the Connection details filed by double clicking on the relevant server.

6.  If you have a subscription to Altered Studio then you are required to use a local Compute server. This requires a PC with an Nvidia GPU and allows for the fastest processing.

7.  To install the Local Server, select Download to download the server. The download file size is approximately 1GB. To install all the voice models will be an additional 3GB.

8.  Once the download is complete the server will be automatically installed. Select Start to activate the server for synthesis. If Windows Defender or your firewall displays any warnings please Allow access to continue.

9.  Once connected to the Local Server, the Connection details field will show http://localhost:5001 and the Status will display Connected

10.  The Account page can be accessed via the Account button (person icon) on the lower left side of Altered Studio.
