    I have a multi-language (Japanese-Welsh) CV+ voicebank called Castillo Wynn.

    I've done stuff with him before, un-oto'd and although he sounded decent enough, it was obvious he didn't have an oto.ini file. I've been working on his oto but I can't paste any hiragana characters directly into the alias text box in the voice configuration tab. So I tried to do it using Notepad. It worked before on my other voicebank Ikasama Imeyo, and he sounds brilliant and is fully hiragana oto'd.

    Every time I do it with Castillo, in the exact same way, his oto.ini file completely corrupts and I have to start everything over. I really would like to have him aliased, is there anything I can do? As well as any advice for the oto?

    Here are examples of them:

    Castillo -

    Imeyo -

    uhhh... i don't really have any suggestions, can you put screenshots as well as your explanation?
    Normally that works for me too, but I guess just like quadruple check your Language packs and Locale etc...

    just a guess, but your oto hiragana aliases turn to gibberish everytime you save it and close Notepad, right?
    You might be encoding the oto.ini wrong.
    Try selecting "Save as" instead of saving normally, and check that the little box undereath the file name says something like "SHIFT-JS" or "UTF-8" instead of something else. I can't provide a screenshot for you as I'm not on Windows, but it should be easy to do, it should be a small drop menù on the right just below the box in where you type your file name.

    Edit : typos

    It doesn't save as 'gibberish'. I save is as Unicode, and that worked the exact same way for my other VB. It completely corrupts the oto file to the point where it doesn't work at all.

    oh, I see, sorry, I completely misread your problem then
    Try deleting old frq files and regenerate them? 's the only thing I can think of, I'm as clueless as you are, sorry. I hope you manage to find a workaround.

    Yeah, I hope. What I'll do is redo the oto.ini, back it up and them attempt to do the hiragana until it works.

    You will need to download the Japanese keyboard and configure your computer for Japanese programs like UTAU if you are having trouble with the hiragana. This tutorial is very helpful

    i'm not a technical person at all so excuse me if this is a bad suggestion, but you could try renaming the files themselves to be in hiragana instead of romaji (assuming that's how they're named)?

    I don't know much about this, but you could make a copy of your voicebank and rename all the .wav files with a romaji to hiragana converter or something like that.

    If that works, then you copy the hiragana .wav into your original folder and that's all.

    That means one of 3 things could be wrong:

    1. Locale is not Japanese
    2. Japanese keyboard is not downloaded
    3. Japanese keyboard is not turned on

    Assuming this is Windows

    Hm, that’s strange- In that case you should be able to paste things into the text box directly? Are you sure 100% sure the keyboard is not just enabled and is actually the one one turned on- I know I made that mistake before.

    I've tried that. It just comes up with a question mark which is really weird. It is a really old computer though and I only put japanese locale on it recently - maybe it's a glitch?

    Did you copy/paste it a second time after you turned it on too? That is strange since it should be reading if everything’s set

    I did copy and paste a second time, as well as using the touch screen Japanese keyboard. It all just came up as question marks

    Did you have locale on when you installed UTAU? Have you turned it off at all since, even if you turned it back on? Can you type the syllables with your jp keyboard directly rather than copy-pasting?
    Also double check that your decimal point is a "." and not a comma.

    I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but copying hiragana from Notepad/anything outside of UTAU and pasting it directly into UTAU's voice configuration window can result in question marks or mojibake (gibberish). The same thing happens when copying hiragana from UTAU and pasting it into Notepad. That may not be the problem here, but it can't hurt to mention it.
    Have you tried typing the hiragana directly in UTAU's configuration window instead of pasting it? I might've misread everything in this thread so far, but typing it manually and pressing enter shouldn't cause it to turn into question marks.
    Do you have a screenshot of what the corrupted file looks like and/or what the oto settings in UTAU look like? That might help identify the issue.
