  • You know, as frustrating as making Oliver sing in Japanese is, I've learned a whole lot that I didn't pick up on last time I did this! Most notably, he tends voice his consonants earlier, so if you want to make him match up to a Japanese singer, you have to adjust his velocity. Also, his [k] works a lot better for the Japanese [g] sound than both his [g] and his [gh] sound, because it's softer than [kh] but not as guttural as [gh].

    Now to figure out how to make Len sound softer without sounding completely muted. His Cold and Serious voicebanks are TOO soft for this song, so I tried turning down the brightness on his Power voicebank, and that's working fine... but now he's even quieter than Oliver, who's notoriously quiet, and when I turn him up every other consonant sounds harsh and electronic.

    Tasukete.

    If you're using Piapro Studio (or Vocaloid 4) to tune Len, I recommend XSYing his power with cold and playing with the configuration a bit for him to sound softer, but not too soft. Hope this helps! ^^
    Also, that info about Oliver's consonants is pretty interesting! :O

    @RoboCheatsyTM Actually, that was the first thing I tried. It usually works (I used that configuration for a section of a cover of Wine Berry and it turned out SO WELL), but it didn't work in this instance, interestingly enough. If I XSYnthed it enough to make his voice match up with Oliver's but still have the light, driving, almost bouncy quality I was looking for, it makes most of his words sound fine, but his vowels suddenly drop and he sounds like he's singing with a mouthful of food during a cold. It's odd. I think I've mostly got it figured out (it'll take some heavy dynamic work and some post-editing in FL), but all the easy fixes just. Didn't work this time. :ring_ani_lili:
    Me, 24 hours ago: "Man, it's been so long since I made Oliver sing in Japanese! I wonder why."

    Me, right now, having to manually edit each and every phoneme in each and every syllable to make his pronunciation sound even halfway correct, only halfway through a four-minute song without having done a single bit of tuning: "Ah. That's why."
    My hair, when styled correctly, is a dead-ringer for Meiko. So my friend talked me into dressing up as her for Halloween! Now to find a red vest and matching skirt in my size within the next month. That'll be the hard part; no one makes short skirts and cute vests for girls my size, heh.
    I've been saving up to get Gumi's V4s, and I've finally hit my goal... but I still don't have a job because no one will hire me due to my upcoming surgeries, so I'm gonna have to save that money for gas and groceries and emergencies. It's a bit of a bummer, but that gives me more incentive to work harder!
