So if I understand what you're saying, mixing and possibly what genre the song is could make a world of difference when using the voicebank. The buzziness wouldn't be that apparent if say she was used in a electronic or rock song but it could cause issues if she was used in a acoustic song or a piano ballad.Okay, after listening to a bunch of covers I've formed a more conclusive opinion on her.
• After a while Cevio's engine noise really started to grate, she has a buzzy roughness that wasn't present in the Vocaloid version. I'll admit, when I switched from a Cevio song to a Vocaloid song my ears practically breathed a sigh of relief. It's one of those little things that isn't a big deal at first but wears you down over time.
• Her enunciation isn't great, I often can't make what she is singing.
• Despite her enunciation issues, she sounds more natural than clearer synths like Cyva. Perhaps in part due to the way her words slur together, she is quite human and emotive. She can pull off a punchy chorus with clarity and emotion.
• The engine noise is reduced significantly in certain songs. I'm not sure if this is due to tuning, or whether the noise is strongest in a certain range..
I noticed that when I been listening to songs that uses ONE lately. The engine noise didn't show up that much in a song like Mirai by ATOLS and hard rock songs, but the noise shown up big time in ballads.
That being said i'm curious to how IA Eng C would sound like in covers from Garbage, Tonight Alive and Paramore's earlier material which could use the aggressiveness of the bank and engine to it's max.
