    Damien is a beta voicebank created with the Arpasing method and will sing and speak in English. He was aimed to be a different character than most of the other UTAU and sings at a much lower average range, also due to this I do not recommend making him sing at pitches higher than C4, but anything below is fine.

    Damien is (in my experience) a very intelligible UTAU even with only basic tuning or just the Arpasing Assistant's word conversion, however to sound great I recommend doing a lot of manual work (Moving notes, changing phonetics, pitch bends) and it can sound just like a person talking or singing digitally. (Mixing is also important!)

    Obviously you would like to hear what he sounds like so here's an official demo cover I have uploaded to soundcloud:





    Huge thanks to @partial for doing the UTAU's artwork.

    I am very open to feedback and criticism so please leave some if you want to say something about the voicebank.
    For example:
    You could tell me that Damien is actually VERY hard to use and is extremely choppy, and I would respect that and ask why and what you think I did wrong.

    Extra notes from the creator:
    Do NOT use moresampler!!! This will happen: https://clyp.it/0tov10yy

    It's better at talking than singing, usually.

    Faster the words, less the intelligibility. (Opposite for talking?)

    Why I don't plan to make a Japanese voicebank:

    Here's a tip for making an Arpasing .ust: If you have the Vocaloid 4 editor you can install a plugin called "ExportVSQ", export the individual tracks as .vsq files, import into UTAU (Utau can import .vsq) and then use Arpasing Assistant on everything (With some manual tweaking) and boom you have a .ust that you can tune and whatever for your Arpasing voicebank!

    The oto.ini is not 100% finished being manually edited! It is fairly easy to quickly oto a singular note that sounds bad however so this shouldn't be too much of an issue!

    Fun facts:
    1. Creation started on April 1st.
    2. Second voicebank I have ever recorded.
