    Releasing another tn_fnds resampler edit. I call it tn_fndsX.

    Feel free to download tn_fndsX here: https://www.mediafire.com/file/033q1omj534vqb5

    New flags (case sensitive):
    · X flag : use on specific notes that glitches
    · M flag : specify for multipitch banks
    · L flag : f0 estimation for voicebanks that don't work using original tn_fnds. Must be used with M flag.
    (accepts 0~10: default 5) - number represents how much you want to allow pitch to fluctuate

    W flag has been updated to work with M flag.

    I have cut my explanation short because I feel that my previous resampler release post was too lengthy.
    Read the read me file included in the download for a more in-depth explanation of flags.

    Possible FAQs
    Question:
    Where's the TLDR? I don't understand the flags.
    Answer:
    In general, these are the flag combinations to be used
    X : For small glitches
    XM : For stubborn glitches if X by itself doesn't work
    XML : Wrong pitch estimations AKA Ambulance noises
    W100M : A substitute for XML which runs faster but is more likely to sound robotic (depending on VBs)

    Question: Why can't you just make the flags work by default?
    Answer:
    My intention of creating tn_fndsX is not to change any part of the original tn_fnds but to just improve it slightly.
    The original tn_fnds works well if the VBs are compatible. The XML flags disturbs this compatibility.

    Question: I am using a monopitch bank and M flags do not work. What do I do?
    Answer:
    Use this website: http://peabody.sapp.org/class/st2/lab/notehz/
    Specify a number corresponding to the pitch of your VB after the W flag.
    E.g. If you recorded the pitch at E4, use W330
    If you are still confused, feel free to contact me for more details.

    Question: Any examples of XML flags working?
    Answer:
    I mean why not

    Updated tn_fndsX slightly
    Feel free to download here: https://www.mediafire.com/file/b6w225zfc1tl3xk
    Now L and W flags are not dependent on the M flag
    They are now dependent on UTAU .frq files average values so please ensure they exist before using the flags.

    Updated flag description

    · L flag : f0 estimation for voicebanks that don't work using original tn_fnds. Use only if original tn_fnds does not work on your voicebank.
    (accepts 1~40: default 5) - number represents how much you want to allow pitch to fluctuate.
    · W flag : f0 estimation for voicebanks that don't work using original tn_fnds. Use only if original tn_fnds does not work on your voicebank.
    (accepts 50~1000: default 0) - Best to not specify a number since W flag will use .frq file average frequency if no number is specified.

    Ignore previous flag recommendations, use XL or W (by itself) globally if your VB does not work with the original tn_fnds.

    I feel that people are likely to be confused on what flags to use.
    So I am going to release an automatic version of tn_fndsX called tn_fnds_PB on a later date. (in this same thread)
    Please look forward to it!

    Alright, presenting tn_fnds_PB!
    Feel free to download tn_fnds_PB here: https://www.mediafire.com/file/2ssj58ai40835q1

    It's basically a more reliable version of the original tn_fnds. However, it renders slightly slower.
    It does not include tn_fndsX's XML flags since it is all done by default.

    W flag still exists. But it is not a must to use it. Ensure .frq files are available if you want to use it though.

    Any other tn_fnds flags will work as intended except for the b flag. The b flag does not work since I allotted f0 values for consonants as well.
    I did so because I was aiming for speed and robustness in exchange of consistency and accuracy.

    What does PB mean? PB could mean "Personal Best". I believe it to be my PB tn_fnds edit.
    Other than that, tn_fnds_PB combines both the ideas of tn_fnds and EFB-PB into one.

    That is all. If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me at my twitter @UtauZany
