    New "Continuous English" VB Testing ;D

    Post by PaintedCz on Mon Apr 19, 2010 9:29 pm

    SUPER EDIT:

    This is my latest. I fixed a ton of crap. o-o;;
    box.netbox.net 07u7vsn5qq

    EDIT:
    And now this is. XD
    box.netbox.net 233fboy5p5

    Could I be making this any more complicated? Yes. :D

    I just updated my reclist to what I'd like to thinkis going to be my final. I made it more uniform and added the two "Vowels" that I knew I was missing. That Schwa in "Book" and "took" and the "thv" in "the" and "that"

    I also added CC's that I didn't have because I didn't think I'd need them. I'm gonna see if they make the flow any smoother.

    The final count is 130 recordings, and should be somewhere under 1300 oto's.
    ^___^

    I wont post another update till I finish rerecording, and get an actual Demo song finished. THEN, I'll post my reclist if I'm satisfied. xDD;

    -------

    I am new to this forum, but I'm not new to UTAU!

    At least a few of you know I've been working on an English Only VB for some time now. I've finially got it to the point where I can really test it.

    So far it's under 100 recordings, it was at 90 when I first wrote them out, but since then I've taken out some and added some. I just haven't recounted. xD
    And there should be like under 1000 something Oto files in the end.

    So this is my current Test, I'm using the Firefiles vsq made by sango on youtube. :3

    I'll keep you updated on my project.~ x3

    EDIT:
    Here's the next line! xD;
    I didn't edit this one to show what it sounds like with my fantastical Oto's working as they should. Ff.. xD;
    So yeah, it's a bit clunkier. I'll edit this one for when I finish the next line to show the difference.

    box.netbox.net xek3775fey

    Right now I only have the links between such things as A and ER being a Y. Because for vowels like A E and I in English you link them with Y's Aya, Eya, Iya. So when she says Stare it sound like Stayer. So I'm either going to see if I can get it to sound more like Stare with a bit of editing, or I'm going to add these linking vowels that I originally had in but took out because they seemed to all link with Y's.

    EDIT:
    She sounds much better when it's slower. xD I didn't mean to make her slur a bit though, I'll fix that. o-o;

    JK But seriously, this is some amazing stuff. Near engloid quality (but not with glitches XD ). Can't wait to see the entire thing~ (Now hopefully I'll be patient enough to record it all)

    :DDD
    Thanks guys!

    I'm making the oto files as I go, so it's taking a while. But it seems to be a pretty easy system to use once you get going. XD

    And the recording is the easy part. ^_^ It's around 90 right now. The annoying part is getting the 1000 or so Oto's done. xD

    But when I'm done with it it should be similar to Ritsu's VCV's. Only... Very English. So... you should just have to go in and tweak them a bit after you record them all. :0

    Fantastic!
    :'D May I request the (probably WIP) reclist?
    And once you're done with it, can I add it to the Reclist download thread? I know a lot of people would love this.
    I myself am developing a CV english list (I'd over complicate a VCV list so I decided against it). It's pretty good, but not as smooth as this.

    Anyway, this sounds really good!

    Yup! ^_^

    I just need to re-write out some things for it and finish the testing. And write out how it works. o_O; But I'll try and get my list up soon.~

    It's bacically a CV VV VC and kind of CC. xDD;
    Depending on how you look at it. I took all the consonants that you can hold, like nnn, mmm, fff, shhh, jjj... and made them work like vowels. So what I don't have is CC like.. db, gd, kt.. and so on.
    So it's not a triphonic system.. it's a Continuous Diphonic.. English.. thing. xD

    ^__^
    I'm still thinking them out. xDD

    She seems to have a hard time when the song is really fast. I'm probably going to have to record them better and tighten up the oto's ... and Edit better. XD

    And I'm definitely going to need to add the Vowel to Vowels I took out. The Y's work for "The yo open" But not "Stayer" xD

    ...Out of curiosity, did you take all the vowels from the English Vocaloid Phoneme list?
    Because they about cover it for me. ^^

    No, I didn't. XD That would have been very useful, but I think I've got everything on that list now.
    I need to add a Schwa that I thought I had covered but didn't and some of the vowel combination's that I took out.

    It's all very silly. UTAU wasn't made to work with VC. xD I'm having a giant battle with it. :/
    I wish someone would program it for English!
    I'm surprised it's working as well as it is. xD

    Well, actually, I was just (as in, as I am posting this) playing around with VCs.
    They work.
    Buuut. Even then, you have to configure them kinda like VCV, and make the previous not the vowel most of the time. But it makes faster songs easier and it makes it flow better. Much better.
    Just not VVC or CVC. D;
    But I got my "in", "ing", "it" and "ov" to work.
    :'D Just on long notes, I had to double the otos for ing and make it so the vowel got stretched, whereas on teh normal ing note, I have the oto set so that most of the vowel is cut off (because I recorded like "iiiiiiing", so I cut it off to "iing"), and only the "ng" gets stretched.
    ...Lost my train of thoughts... I ahd something else to say here...
