    So I'm currently making Appends for my UTAUloid, Okaru Itsuto. Currently, the appends I am going to make for him are Sakebi (shout/powerful), Whisper, Rikimi (growly), Sweet, and Edge (vocal fry). Since they are appends, they need suffixes. Right now, I have 力 for Rikimi, 囁 for Whisper, and ↑ for Sakebi. What could be some symbols or Kanji I could use for Sweet and Edge?

    tl;dr
    What Kanji or symbols could I use for a Sweet append and an Edge (vocal fry) append?
    Examples:
    力 for Rikimi/growl
    囁 for Whisper
    ↑ for Sakebi/shout

    I would suggest for sweet. Not quite sure for vocal fry, maybe ↓ since vocal fry is the lowest vocal register?

    I was considering 甘 for sweet, I just didn't know if it would make sense, lol. I guess ↓ could work for VF. If you think of anything else let me know.

    I actually advise against using kanji or other special characters. If you're not doing exclusively Japanese voicebanks or marketing to an exclusively Japanese audience, they're very inconvenient to type. ASCII characters make the voicebank a lot more usable to a wider audience. For example, G for growl, P for power, S for soft, W for whisper, or anything else you can think of.
