    I'm formally announcing the development of sunetoha, my new main UTAU.

    It will have separate voicebanks made for 6 languages: English, Japanese, Esperanto, Korean, Tagalog, and Mandarin Chinese. (In that order).
    Each of the voicebanks will have 9 pitches, three pitches each for soft, neutral, and power.

    You can follow the development of this UTAU on its website here.

    There's no character, and up until recently, there wasn't a name either. So this will be voice for you to put to any face or story! :smile:

    This is the planned recording schedule for English:
    June 7 - 9: Power
    June 10 - 12: Neutral
    June 13 - 15: Soft

    OTOing should begin soon after.

    What non-phonetic extra samples would people be interested in having? For example, glottal stops and vocal fries, or spoken phrases and breaths. They'll be included with every language, though I may need to consult other language speakers to create phrases in languages I don't know. Feel free to leave your ideas in this suggestion box!

    Sorry about the lack of updates, but I haven't begun OTOing yet. I'm prioritizing my commissions and a multitude of original song projects, so I would probably need more of an incentive if I'm going to return to this project. Please rest assured that I will not abandon sunetoha overall! It'll just have to wait for another time.

    It's the way her voice sounds rough and croaky.
