    Hello!

    So, some time ago, I've posted a thread stating that my UTAU, Yaemi Keisuke, didn't have emotion in her voice. Most people that have answered told me that was because I spoke instead of singing in my samples.

    After a bit of training, I've tried again and made a short comparison between the two. Speaking voice comes first, then singing.



    The old one has the following caracteristics:
    -Tetra-pitch (4 pitches, B3, D4, G4, C5)
    -No end breaths
    -Speaking voice, not voice acted

    The new one will have the following caracteristics (sample is just monopitch) :
    -Tri-pitch powerscale (3 pitches, B3, D4, F4)
    -End breaths, in and out
    -Singing voice, slightly voice acted

    I personally think that the speaking one had more resampler-generated noise than the singing. Also, it had this accent that I don't like very much.

    What do you guys think? I'd love constructive criticism and opinions. I'm also open to new ideas!

    Thank you for reading this, and have a good day!

    I think that you've improved a lot!

    Maybe sound configurations (oto.ini) needs some adjustment but the voice tone itself is great.

    The pronunciation was mostly ok but I suggest to practice /a/ and /o/ sounds because these sounded more like /{/ and /@/ than /a/ and /o/ (unless this is what you wanted/done on purpose for V-Key style genre or smth).

    I've done a quick oto for this sample! But you're right, I'll check it!
    (I was aiming for that pronunciation, but if that bugs too many people, I'll change it).

    EDIT: I checked my oto, and it seems fine to me. Maybe I just didn't fit my UTAU to the UST...

    Thank you for your feedback!

    (SInce I can't edit my reply anymore, for some reason, I'm going to reply here).
    After checking my oto, I've noticed that a lot of sounds weren't otoed. It strange, because I remember doing it, but I guess SetParam just decided to delete what I've done.
