We describe a synthesizer in the time-domain and in particular a method of source-tract coupling. In our synthesizer, a two-mass model represents vocal folds. The vocal tract simulation is based on the Kelly-Lochbaum model. To solve the problem of source-tract coupling, vocal folds are considered as a special tube of the vocal tract. A subglottal system has also been studied within the context of a model of speech aerodynamics. Keywords: articulatory synthesizer, source-tract coupling, subglottal system, aerodynamic processes of speech.
