    I think it already has been.

    There was a game (Barbie ?) for the old Commodoore 64 in which Ken calls
    Barbie up for a date and she has to go shopping for a new outfit.
    Anyway, Ken and Barbie both had nice digitised voices. Beachhead II
    also had good voice digitization.

    But the only sound available for the C64 was a simple synthesizer which
    produced square, triangle, sawtooth and noise. These were combined very
    nicely (the audio equivilent of RGB) to reproduce recorded speach.

    That what you mean?
