Change voice in festival

I installed festival under /opt/TTS so presume that precedes in the following unless noted otherwise.
I examined festival/lib/siteinit.scm and found the default voice was: voice_cmu_us_awb_arctic_hts (which I did not include with the install) which doesn't matter because the lin is commented out.
The install included
festvox_cmu_us_slt_arctic_hts.tar.gz and
which are American Male using clustergen, American Female, HTS, and American English Male residual LPC diphone, I think.
I found a recent source saying to modify siteinit.scm second to last line to change the voice (...awb_arctic above ) with what was in voices but what is there is:
and under that are nothing like voice_... (I just show english/...)
Hence, I need to know how to change between the voices in version 2.1. Is there someone that can help out there?
BTW yes it is working but I am unfamiliar with the vocal output and cannot tell from where the male voice is coming.
