    What would your dream UTAUloid be like? As in, for you, what would make an UTAUloid perfect? For example, how many pitches would it have? Recording style? Extra phonemes? etc. etc.

    This thread isn't about being practical, it's about what the perfect UTAUloid would be like in your eyes, so feel free to go absolutely nuts, it's just a bit of fun! Plus, if you think your perfect UTAUloid already exists, feel free to share them, maybe someone else will fall in love :wink:

    If I could just get a decent microphone and record a tripitch VCV and/or VCCV English I'd be in heaven

    This specific Kohaku Merry VB :love:

    It has extra appends/tones for dynamics, vocal fry, hard accents, and a bunch of other stuff I forgot/haven't discovered!

    Now only if Miko had a bank such as that. That would be my true dream VB or maybe a mature VB <3

    High quality female english utau, custom reclist that includes accent variation phonemes, expressive phonemes, useful clusters, and other cool stuff to have. Other expressive extras like fries, growls, end breaths. And a separate omake with stuff to add during mixing, like standalone breaths, or spoken statements. High quality smooth and COMPLETE oto. All possible tones- from a soft mature tone to powerful nasal tone, everything really. Character personality with interesting traits that inspire lyrics, while also being open to pretty much anything. Distinct character design that stays recognizable even if changing color scheme to suit specific songs. This would be an UTAU that I could instantly go to and know that it will definitely handle anything I throw at it. This would be a main.

    Of course, that's kind of impossible, so I guess I'm stuck with having to search for a completely different UTAU every time I want a slightly different sound, or look for a certain pronunciation... Or even a different color scheme

    Does it have to be a native speaker? I mean, because of the phoneme variation and stuff... I'm calculating the number of samples this would take anyway.

    Hmmm, A good voicebank, An unique design, And a voice that you don't scream "OH GOD NO" over. I have come by so many voicebanks where the voice... ugh.

    At least I handled the design problems for some UTAU easily. But I am also educated in design, so i guess that helped myself xD

    Oh, of course. And you should probably stop calculating, it'll definitely break the oto limit a million times. That's why it's only a dream.

    Ahaha, if we're going that way, then I'd love to see English Kotonone Azami! He's somewhat obscure and currently only has a VCV and some other stuff, but somehow he's been my husbando for years.

    My dream VB is:

    A multi pitch VCV (lite) Finnish VB which has a large vocal range and could sing anything between calm ballad to hard rock songs (power scale VB with Falsetto pitch?). Of course would have complete oto.ini etc settings, good pronounciation and at least descent sound quality.

    I won't much mind of voice type (masculine/feminine, cutesy/mature...) as long as it's flexible and sounds nice.

    Plus has good character design, simply-ish but still interesting (elegant-ish?) and not painful to draw it multiple times (I dislike over detailed/colorful character designs).

    Having a Japanese and/or English VB (VCV, CVVC or VCCV) with OK pronunciation would be also a big plus.

    (Please, someone make my dream true//slapped)

    Woah, I wasn't expecting so many replies to this thread XD Everyone's given some pretty cool, fun ideas, so I've enjoyed reading through them (and who knows, maybe someone's been inspired by :wink:)

    For the record, Kohaku Merry is, indeed, my dream come true, although I can't figure out what I should do with some sounds, lol.

    I was actually looking for a decent VCV Finnish reclist the other day (for, you know, reasons) but I couldn't find one :s Does it exist? Because, if not, I could try writing one myself...

    I've got lots of contacts, so you might find what you need here. Also, Pupu-san is super cool at reclisting! And I can add anything you want too

    Actually, I'm currently working on with oto setting with Finnish VCV lite. I will release reclist with base oto and a VB once it's 100% completed (so far, ca. 60% of oto settings are done for the VB. I'm pretty fast at oto'ing, so.... Maybe releasing it in this or the next month?? IDK)

    My plans are to release two ver for Finnish VCV lite reclist: "full" one and "ultra lite" version. :v

    english and mandarin chinese vb please. like, a nice mature female voice. itd be really smooth sounding, clear, a bit lower pitched, only two or three pitches is fine. also the english reclist would have actual x-sampa symbols. like instead of using an e or 3 for the first sound in another, you can just copy and paste the upside down e. i guess there would have to be a .txt list of x-sampa in the file so the user can just copy n paste.

    some random sounds would be included, such as laughing or screaming or something for sound effects in songs. mainly the screaming parts in songs like hope or love is war. instead of awkwardly writing an a sound and then having to play around with the envelope and hope it sounds like a real scream instead of someone trying to do sing and shout at the same time.

    and the chinese would be starting-vowel ending. like instead of (this is what vocasmith and by extension xia yu, oscar, and joan do) having one file of zhong why not have it like zho ong. also the vowels alone. like, xia yu doesn't have a e i o u alone, they are always with another part. and im like, i just want the a sound. why?

    Just wanted to say here that I think you're thinking of the IPA rather than X-SAMPA (Wikipedia article comparing them here but ə is the IPA form and @ is the X-SAMPA form) which I actually think would be pretty cool, but I'm pretty sure using those kinds of symbols will just break UTAU, since it doesn't even support letters with accents on (like ç) as far as I know (unless there's a patch I'm unaware of). However, I'm pretty confident that UTAU can read full X-SAMPA.

    Anyway, it's not as if it matters that much, I just thought it would be worth pointing out, but can someone please correct me if I'm wrong? :smile:

    Every sound in the IPA, flawless multilingualism and pronunciation, high quality recording equipment, and as many pitches and vocal tones as possible.
    ... I can dream, can't I? :sing:

    Rook and Sukone Tei KIRE and English. If that exists, and if only my internet speed isn't slow I would download them right away. ;-;
