This is a thread for discussion of Synthesizer V, a singing synthesizer developed by Dreamtonics. It uses a combination of traditional sample-based voice synthesis and new AI-based voice synthesis driven by machine learning to create a unique sound. Synthesizer V was originally released as a Technical Preview in August 2018, followed by a full release in December 2018. The second generation of Synthesizer V, Synthesizer V Studio, was revealed in June 2020 and released on July 10th 2020.
1st Generation Synthesizer V
The 1st generation version of Synthesizer V was released in December 2018, after a Technical Preview release in August 2018. There were 8 vocals total released for this version, in 3 languages. The editor can be used for free alongside the vocals without restriction, but it is encouraged to buy a license to support Dreamtonics. It is assumed that this version will be gradually phased out as voice databases are updated to Synthesizer V Studio, and the license will become unavailable for purchase as of July 15th. It's still possible to download the software but it's recommended to use Synthesizer V Studio instead.​
The 1st generation version of Synthesizer V has been retired and is now unavailable for purchase.
Synthesizer V Studio
The 2nd generation version of Synthesizer V was released in July 2020. There are two versions, Synthesizer V Studio Basic which comes will all voice databases and Synthesizer V Studio Pro, which can be purchased separately. The Basic version is functionally similar to the Pro version, however it is limited in some ways.​

I actually haven't heard of this synth before but daaaaang it sounds nice in English. Not to fond of the Japanese and the Chinese(?) before editing sounds really off to me so those languages will be interesting.

I'll have to get some of my synth using friends to see if they can joined the closed beta if it ends up being open for sign ups. x'D

I remember seeing this a while ago, I'm really interesting in how it goes and how it'll develop as time goes on. I'd definitely love to give it a try hopefully. Though I'm not too fond of the sound of the female voice but it'd probably grow on me as time went on.

This post went up around 3 hours go, showing off what must be the parameters? It looks pretty simple, and I wonder if you scroll the notes up/down you can almost line them up? Which would be nice.

Oooo, and it looks like there'll be multiple modes of pitch editing. (It says freehand, which seems like Vocaloid style, so maybe there'll be an UTAU-style mode? I hope so because the pitchbending system is my favorite thing about UTAU) EXCELLENT! wantwantwantwanthype

It reminds me of Sharpkey, a bit. I'm assuming the green line is where you actually edit PIT, and this shows as the blue lines. It's certainly promising and I continue to look forward to it!

Wow I honestly didn't expect it to sound so smooth. The engine noise is even less prominent than CeVIO's. This is really promising.
The Chinese male vocal sounded like he was singing way out his optimum range though lol

Ooh, the tension/relaxed settings could be very useful. I'm really looking forward to this coming out, though I don't particularly like what I believe is the engine noise.
