    Files/samples you have problems saying?

    Post by Haloheroine on Thu Oct 07, 2010 10:10 pm

    Well, this came up because I'm recording a set of female VCVs (because my female CVs sound wierd).

    You may not ever hear her.
    BUT WOW.

    So I use rolled rs for Hayao, because in my opinion, they sound sexy on guys.

    I can pronounce the Japanese r perfectly fine, however, so I was recording her r sets normally...

    Then I got to "rorunranru".

    I cannot for the life of me say "nra" properly.
    Like, really. It turns into "na" or "n -rolled r-".
    Why. OTL

    Your turn.

    None in special, 'cause Japanese and Spanish pronunciations are almost the same. Razz
    I have some troubles recording English, though. It's not my native language and we (Chileans) have a very bad pronunciation comparating with other Spanish-speaking countries XD

    Ri, chi, and any of the sh sounds. (Yes, only ri. Not the other r sounds.)

    Oh my gosh, me neither! I tried for a while and the best I could do was sort of an "n da". ;___;

    Also, on every single voicebank I record ever, the "wa" sound is just SO WEIRD. I have no idea why. XD;;

    ru for me always sounds horrible. It's like "DUUUUUUUU!". Also, m's and s's are over-exaggerated in my samples.

    I'm going to try and have my consonants softer in Kaen Act III. Maybe it'll sound smoother that way.

    I haven't had this problem with recording, because I've yet to attempt VCV's, but I was singing a song one day until the lyrics got to "Goenryo shimasu".

    I settled with something like "goenyo" and gave up. OTL

    ...In japanese/korean-- R after N is pronounced the "L way" EVE

    ..The "proper" way to say Korean and Japanese R sounds like an L. ...However, when people talk, they get lazy and some people pronounce it as a soft rolled R-thing. (It's still pronounced with the tongue the same way, just 'quicker' basically.)
    (For example, Teto's Renzoku Rs = lazy Rs)

    I have a problem with rwa/rwu. OTL

    There's prolly an "easy way" to pronounce it that I'm missing out on.

    Isn't rw supposed to be the attempt at the english r? I thought I saw some discussion about that.

    Whenever I see "wo" I wanna pronounce it in Chinese (which I usually do anyways...).
    And... my English R's sound funny, orz.

    I have problems with R's too orz
    Italian has trilled R (or rolled, if you want), so it SHOULD be easy for me, but it's actually not. X_x
    It seems I can do a softer R (still trilled, but weak enough to be acceptable) if it's in the middle of the words, but not at the beginning. And at the beginning I roll them like mad Dx So my samples are all too rolled and if I try not to roll it, something weird comes out XD;
    And between all the R sounds, 'ru' is the worst. Last time I tried to record it was still like 'RRRRuuu' despite my attempts to say it quick Dx

    Need to practice more with it x_x

    And I still haven't tried English and VCV <.<
    "rorunranru" is indeed a nightmare to say XD *is trying*
