This is my cadencii journey. This is my hell. I first caught interest in Cadencii back in the early 2010s, when I encountered a video of Ritsu singing "Black Rock Shooter" I failed so many damn times to just get a voice to sing. There were no English tutorials but, I still tried. I failed and I failed. But for some stupid, mystical, nightmarish, reason I decided I would put it away and try again, and again. Always to fail. Step one in my quest: ****ing make it work. That's what I did today, I finally got Nagone Mako to sing! Granted, I did not have the patients to work on this "cover" any further. No tuning, nothing. Mainly because while I could UTAU's pitch plugin working, it would displace the pitch by 60ms. No idea why. But here's my process so far for those interested. Step 1: GET A ****ING VSQx THAT MIGHT WORK. One would say that's not an issue but, it is. Cadencii is the most stubborn vocal synth in the world. VSQx? Maybe it'll load it. UST? Good ****ing luck. Midi? You're as ****ed as a UST. So, if for some reason you found a UST/VSQ that worked, you passed step one. Time for more frustrating shit. Step 2: Getting a voice bank to work. Requirements: Must be VCV, no CVVC or CV. Must have a consistent oto a.k.a. Preutter: 300, overlap: 100 for every sample. Iroiro2, if you don't have this plug in, it will be more frustrating to work with Cadencii. Decent quality recording wise, if it's not you'll have weird glitches. How to: First open Cadencii and go to settings>preference Then go to UTAU singers> add> find UTAU Step3: Load that magical VSQx Step4: Setting up the singing. First, go to the bottom tab, right click it and choose V.Connectstand, and your singer. It should look like this. Step 5: Now, converting your VSQx to japanese VCV Go to script>Install UTAU plugin Add Iroiro V2 Do ctrl+a and then go back to script, select Iroiro2 Convert the lyrics over to hiragana Then use CV-> to VCV For multipitches, you want to then go to default lyrics and apply the prefix map.
