    i can never keep a consistent sound...and the samples usually come out like theyre each from different banks ;;

    sometimes pronouncing the "j" sounds like a russian j sound (close to SH)

    the way i pronounce my Rs sometimes makes it sound like Ls in UTAU, or makes it sound like its almost not there (sometimes comes out sounding as "te" in UTAU, even when it doesnt sound like that in the samples) ;;

    When I swallow my spit and my mic picks it up in HD
    when recording for an English bank, I always end up pronouncing "a" as "A" and have to re-record
    switching pitch even with the help of BGM in oremo
    I lose motivation to continue recording after five samples (I'm really lazy)

    I keep getting too dehydrated and my mouth will make clicking and popping noises on consonants I thought were impossible before. Have you ever wanted to hear a giant pop in the middle of "ma"?? Cuz I can make your dream come true!

    Mostly when I allow my voice to become more higher tone, or when I my voice shifts from chest to nasal. I also am unable to form Japanese R for the life of me.

    When it comes to the nature of my sessions I get to caught up in trying to do well, that I start questioning everything from the reclist/system, room noise, ECT. I've deleted so many banks from overthinking quality.... "Orz

    For some reason my voice just looooves to randomly crack while trying to record.
    Also, this isn't entirely related to recording UTAU, but I sound strained in my high range no matter what I do. And I feel like my voice can be pretty nasally for absolutely no reason? At least in my recordings it sounds pretty nasally.

    I have a breathy voice, I can sing clear, but when I do, my freaking voice cracks all the time. :ehhh:

    So that's annoying.

    I'm not exactly good at making my voice sound different, so I can really only voice one. Aside from that though, I have a naturally quiet voice and dogs that'll freak out if they hear a noise too loud. And I forget to breathe in between samples, or take too deep a breath so I'm recording super awkwardly.

    There's a lot, basically. kujyhtgrfeds :blink:

    Trying to record Echo is just a pain to begin with, I need to keep my voice lower, for recording his soft (Which I might have to do again if the hard drive from my dead pc is also dead too *Eye twitch*) it's fine, but recording his core and power banks my voice is like: "HAHA, NOPE YOU'RE NOW MERSHIO" And don't get me started on trying to record a Falsetto >_>. Also before I had a really hard time with n ra, n ri, n ru, etc.

    popping on any aspirated consonants, god! i can't escape it. usually it's subtle enough that it's not audible at all once it's mixed, but despite having a pop filter i can't seem to stop the popping without my recordings ending up sounding muffled.

    also, i naturally have a lisp, and though it's 90% gone and i never thought it would even effect Rs in the first place, recording R strings for japanese VCV really brings it out full force and i end up slurring the hell out of them no matter what i do.

    and another unexpected problem recording the highest pitch for kira's multipitch bank was my voice suddenly cracking obnoxiously. it was kind of hilarious initially, but meant MORE forcing my voice to its highest range to try and squeak out some rerecords, which meant more cracking, and i ended up doing ~10 strings at a time before pausing to rest my voice and drink water before i could continue and actually hit the note. it ended up being a real pain.

    Now that i'm attempting to record VCCV, I keep recording i as E, then I get to E and I'm like 'wait......... craaaaaaap" and I have to go and rename my files.

    what annoys me is when i forget to set oremo to record in a folder and then the multipitch ends being all over the place .-.
