    I find this word pretty cool, despite I don't know the meaning, and I'm sure it has nothing to do with flowers (haha). Could you please explain me what's or who's hanasu?

    話す (hanasu) is a Japanese word meaning "to speak", analogous to how UTAU is the word for "to sing". This is the equivalent term to the word "Talkloid" in the vocaloid community, using a singing synthesizer for speech instead.
     
    Piia and Jeffrey like this.

    I remember seeing one somewhere, though I don't exactly recall the name. As far as I know, most people simply make USTs for hanasu by hand.

    Nope. It's made all in UTAU.

    It's just like using UTAU for singing except instead of setting the notes to match the melody of the song, the notes are set to match human speech.

    Normally you would take the UTAU program, draw the notes with the lyrics and start playing with them up and down along with the portamento so it resembles human speech. It's quite complex and you need good hearing for that so it doesn't sound like a robot. I myself feel not capable of doing such a thing. Lately I have seen there is a new tendency: VCVC. Some people tried to play with UTAU samples to make it more like talkloid, but I do not have enough information to tell you the depths of this new system.
