    I'm asking because I'm trying to make one out of the notes on my old vtech laptop from when I was little (there's a music key option) but when I tried playing it in UTAU, nothing really works? It more or less is aliased the same way as the other instrument UTAU on my laptop (Kushiba Maki, Wilbur Holly, and Mougeki Allegro) so IDK why its not working...

    What exactly do you mean by not working? Is it not playing at all, is it glitchy sounding?

    Also, different types of sounds will require different oto techniques (such as, held note vs. percussive; does the laptop make a long sound or a short one?)

    Make sure that your audio files are 16 bit mono channel .wav files at a 44.1kHz sample rate. If you're directly extracting audio from other hardware you might have trouble with the format (which is a common problem for utau voicebanks recorded on mobile phones)

    Some resamplers are more or less lenient with the file format, but those settings ensure maximum compatibility.
