    Meaning other words that mean something similar to "suffer?" Or better phonemes for "suffer?" In the first case, you might consider "bear" or "endure," maybe. A book called a thesaurus can be helpful with this sort of thing; if you don't have access to one of those, you could even look up...

    Hatsune Miku

    Nice, I'll look forward to that! I've almost finished writing a short article for Miku's birthday, which I'll share on Aug. 31. Along with that, I have my usual vegetable juice/"World Is Mine" tradition, or I may replace that with one/more of the online events that have been planned, or...

    Hatsune Miku

    Happy August everyone! @hamano's mikuration picks are up! In terms of music, first up we have "celluloid" by baker. It's a nice soft and nostalgic-sounding song, accompanied by slice-of-life video clips. It's really nice! Second, kz's "Catch the Wave" probably needs no introduction, especially...

    What’s this mean?

    From the message, I'd guess that either your computer or the Vocaloid 4 program/the process that handles converting regular words into X-SAMPA is running out of memory. I'd guess that either There is something about the word you're putting in that it doesn't like (Looks like the word is "has?"...

    Macne Nana or Ruby?

    I agree with peaches--part of the fun of working with a vocal synth is working with a voice you like. If you really prefer Nana, you should get her. At the same time, I don't think the style of music that a synth is usually used for is necessarily a great reason for avoiding a synth. I guess...

    @uncreepy: I've had similar issues with the search feature. I can understand not being able to search for Tweet content (with an embedded Tweet, you're storing a link to the Tweet, so the content isn't technically "here"), but the search feature seems to be strict about what you put in. I...

    Making a vowel sound more nasal/harsher

    Thank you very much to everyone! I was about to post that I was using "e n d". If I listened hard, I could hear it as the word "end," but it did well for getting the sound I wanted. But then I thought about it again. Miku does ok pronouncing "and" the way I'd like if I just click on the word...

    Making a vowel sound more nasal/harsher

    Might be a really simple question, but does anyone have any tips for how to make a vowel sound more nasal/harsher? Specifically, I'm working with Miku English. She's singing the word "and" (Whose phonemes are { n d ). Checking Vocaloid Wiki, { seems like the harshest/most "a"-like "ah" sound...
