This is actually pretty fun. Portal voices are pretty solid. The timbre of Twilight Sparkle is dead on - really surprised me. Wasn't able to change denoise setting though: might have helped with some of the muddiness in a few of the voices.

I've only been playing with deep learning stuff for a few months now, and it's kind of mind-blowing how fundamentally simple it is to understand with fastai.
