The most interesting thing about this one is the chord progressions it generates.
I did notice that it seems to vary with the past 3 notes you've moved to. If you continue repeating the same pattern of jumps among the scale, you can replicate the chords the voices slide to.
Would you find this useful? Is this not already available somewhere? Sounds like a fun project!
Either way I agree, definitely a fun project.
Code's here if anyone wants to play: https://stackblitz.com/edit/ohgodwhathaveidone – I did a fairly medium job of abstracting the synthesis engine away from the UI, but it might be a decent starting point if you're looking to make other Trombone-based web silliness.

This way of writing gave people some unique words to query search engines for, making it easier to find warez sites, torrent trackers and ftp servers hosting pirated files but I think it orginated long before the web was born — even before any sort of networked computing existed.
Consider the word “phreaking” which was invented at the time of mechanical telephone switching systems. This word came from combining the words “phone” and “freaking”. I think that word could have inspired hackers to use use ph in place of f in other words, and then once you start making that substitution, other substitutions follow, like using z instead of s.
I dunno, I grew up in the 90s so there is a lot of hacker culture that precedes my time. What I do know is that a lot of early hacker culture spawned other subcultures, and that several influences of the origins remain central in these. For example, the demoscene.
I'd also (as an English speaker) like to see/hear Dutch g and Xhosan clicks.
Maybe higher compression can be achieved with better prediction, aka machine learning.
Edit: to be clear I used to sound male 24/7 and now I sound female 24/7 Rather than thinking you are speaking male or female it helps if you think you are playing a musical instrument with a number of controls that you control (with your mind whahahaha). Then it is just about learning what each control does and how to play them so you get the result you want.
Your voice is muscle memory so while at the start I had to actively "play" a female voice that is no longer the case and now if I ever want to "play" a male voice I have to actively think about how I am going to speak each word to make it male.
In addition, this would imply that only males can talk in a low register, which is patently false. Low register female voices are fairly common.
So they can make it sound more masculine but still high pitched
... which is because the latter was patterned after the shape of the mouth.
"69 adj. Large quantity. Usage: Exclusive to MIT-AI. "Go away, I have 69 things to do to DDT before worrying about fixing the bug in the phase of the moon output routine..." (Note: Actually, any number less than 100 but large enough to have no obvious magic properties will be recognized as a "large number". There is no denying that "69" is the local favorite. I don't know whether its origins are related to the obscene interpretation, but I do know that 69 decimal = 105 octal, and 69 hexadecimal = 105 decimal, which is a nice property. - GLS)"
