    Hi!
    I know this is a bit old, but I noticed a tiny mistake. There are two "bibi" strings, "びびぶびべびんび " and "びびべぶぼぶんぶ". However the second one should be a "bubu" string (since there are none), like this "ぶぶべぶぼぶんぶ".
    Even thought this is an easy fix, I figured you would like to know about this so you can fix it for future downloaders.

    Hello! Why doesn't exist any "ye" entry? It's a sound that didn't exist in japanese?

    Ahh, and if you don't care I'm splitting your reclist to be a 2 mora reclist. I won't post it anywhere, I'm just doing this to record my own utau with more accuracy.

    You are correct, "ye" is not a standard Japanese syllable. There is no unique kana for "ye", so it is typically represented as イェ.

    You're free to make edits for strictly personal use. However, the design of Insanity Basics is to cover every essential VCV sample in as few strings as possible, so cutting the reclist into smaller strings is a bit counter-productive. If you're recording every individual VCV sound, you don't really need to base it on someone else's reclist. Simply take a standard CV reclist and record it 7 times: no prefix, "a" prefix, "i" prefix, "u" prefix, "e" prefix, "o" prefix, and "n" prefix.

    Ohh, I got it! I take yours because it was saying that there is every sound in the japanese, so i thought it should be easier and more safe to make a vcv 2 mora reclist by splitting yours. But I agree, maybe it's easier if I did it with a CV, but it's kinda finished so i think I will end it xD

    I know that question can be kinda dumb, but if I'm recording every VCV sound individually it will still being a VCV VB, right? And more important, if I'm doing a 2 mora VCV VB I still need to record it with in a rythm(like oremo)?

    Recording individual VCV samples will still result in a VCV voicebank when the aliases are configured in a standard way.

    You can use whatever technique you want, but recording in long strings of multiple syllables gives you the advantage of a consistent singing tone. Using a metronome or guideBGM will allow you to ensure that each syllable is the same length. Using a pitch guide or guideBGM will allow you to ensure that every sample is recorded at the same pitch. Multiple syllables in one recording, especially when recorded slowly, will encourage you to sing each syllable properly instead of speaking them.

    If you have difficulties with breathing enough for super long strings, you may want to look into 5 mora VCV reclists to still get the same benefits of recording multiple syllables in one string. Additionally, it would be beneficial for anyone recording a voicebank to do vocal warmups and exercises (there are many available on youtube) and practice singing, even if you have no intentions of becoming a singer yourself.
