Radio New Vegas GPT

an internet radio station controlled by AI.

based on the station, radio new vegas, from the game fallout: new vegas. specifically, radio new vegas has an AI radio host, so i did the same.

with different and more varied music. click below to listen, or add this URL to your media player of choice.

(Buffering, wait a moment.)

suggest a song

enter a search query for a song and mr. new vegas will try his best to find it to add to the playlist.

it searches spotify (and as a backup, youtube music) so sometimes a bootleg song will be found instead. apologies.

please don't make me manually remove weird (or boring) shit.

technical stuff

this was a lot more work than it needed to be because i wanted an actual AI radio host to control/voice it. not just pre-written lines.

i'm using gpt-3 to generate the dialogue based on the original transcript from mr. new vegas, and xVASynth to generate the audio for his voice.

previously i used a voice model trained by DanRuta. i've since (march 24, 2022) trained a new one myself based on the same voice acting, using xVATrainer.

the explaination in the link above was one day into development. since then i've removed my desktop and GPU from the equation. now it's being hosted on a $20 vps and can generate new audio on its own cpu, and the playlist is in. though i'm occasionally fixing bugs and pronounciation errors, it pretty much runs by itself now. the audio and gpt-3 requests get cached (gpt-3 burns money like a fossil fuel to run) and over time the cache clears old dialogue to generate new content.

please don't dmca me. but if you have to, before you go to hell, you can contact me the old fashioned way.
