Hi there! Some of you might remember me for posting the new rec-list type thread. I basically gave up on the project because the recordings were getting tedious. I also NOW KNOW FLUENT ENGLISH!!! Yay! That'll make things a lot easier for me. Anyway, I've recently been thinking about how VOCALOID uses English syllables for their recording process. I was thinking about this a lot. I even went over how VOCALOID uses X-SAMPA. It's both simple and advanced. Basically, I was wondering if there was a way for people to use a VOCALOID rec-list, but in UTAU! I know many people have already thought about this, but I think we should explore more. I think that the way it should work is that you record the syllable - or a string of syllables, perhaps (?) - and then alias is under the pronunciation. For example: you record something encoded in X-SAMPA (for this example it'll sound like "cheap"), and then you alias it under the word "cheap", or "Cheap", then you could make the UTAU sing "I love Cheap Thrills" simply by typing the words into the notes. The goal of this project is to make using UTAU easier for people. Hopefully, we'll even find ways to make the recording simpler while still maintaining the VOCALOID type of feel to it. ~~~ What I'll need: A volunteer who's willing to give some of their time to record the syllables and all that (must have Discord or Skype at least. Also, you don't have to be active all of the time. Private message me if interested) Other people who can help with finding VOCALOID recording lists or other recording techniques Others who think they can help with the project in general, even the tiniest amount. Like helping with X-SAMPA encoding and such. ~~~ I found a thread article that doesn't seem very active, but... I'm just gonna revive it lol I also found an English VOCALOID rec-list web page that could be of some use. It's for VOCALOID1 but it's a start, isn't it? ~~~ So what do you guys think? You can ask questions if you want to. I want to hear what you have to say about this. Also, once again, you'll have to keep in mind that we might close this project like we did with the last one. Thanks for letting us take some of your time!
