Single Reclist oto.ini Easy English CVVC Reclist 96 Lines / 64 Lines 4 Moras 2.1

This reclist is based on the X-SAMPA Delta reclist, but even more compressed. There are two versions. The first one, with complete vowels, 96 lines. The second one, with some vowels merged, 64 lines (more information on the vowels section below). You can also choose to not merge every pair. So the range would be between 64 and 96 lines.

The oto contains CV, V, C, and VC. The C is like the Japanese single phoneme ん, but expanded to other consonants as well (except for stop and affricate consonants, more information about the consonants on the oto section below).

2. SAMPLE 64 LINES:

Pardon my microphone quality. I'll make a new example if possible. I want to make a male voicebank example for this reclist. So if you want to make a male voicebank using this reclist, and is okay to be used for an example like the short cover below. Please message me. All you need to do is record yourself, I'll do the oto, and you can have the final voicebank! You can choose your favorite song too! (Please suggest an appropriate song and not a complicated one like rap songs)

a. Kaeru no Uta (original)​



b. Mine by Taylor Swift (original)​




3. USAGE:

Use this page to transcript English to IPA: https://tophonetics.com

a. Kaeru no Uta​

First, you need to get the lyric. This song has a simple lyric.
Can you hear the froggy song?
Would you like to sing along?

Then, use the site mentioned above to get the IPA transcription. Here are the transcription:
kæn ju hir ðə froggy sɔŋ
wʊd ju laɪk tu sɪŋ əˈlɔŋ

As you can see the word "froggy" is not in the dictionary. So you can change it to "frog" first, then add "gi" at the end. Also, in spoken English, "j" after "d" is more like "ʒ". Here's the final transcription:
kæn ju hir ðə frɑgi sɔŋ
wʊd ʒu laɪk tu sɪŋ əˈlɔŋ

After that, translate the IPA transcription to X-SAMPA. You can see the translation table on the vowel and consonant section below. Here's the translated version:
k{n ju hir D@ frAgi sON
wUd Zu laIk tu sIN @lON

I'm using the 64 version. So change { to E, V to A, U to @, and o to O.
kEn ju hir D@ frAgi sON
w@d Zu laIk tu sIN @lON

Finally, split the VC and consonant clusters.
kE - E n - ju - hi - i r - D@ - f@ - rA - gi - sO - ON
w@ - @d - Zu - la - I - I k - tu - sI - I N - @ - lO - ON

This is just the a simple guide to get you started. You probably want to play around with it to get the sound you wanted. The UST of this example is included in the reclist.

b. Mine by Taylor Swift​

Here's a more complicated song for example:




4. IMPORTANT TIPS:

  1. Record each line in one breath and string them together. For example, read "a-la-ma-na" as "allammanna", and "a-ha-ja-ka" as "ahhajjakka".
  2. Don't quickly switch from consonants to the next vowel. Hold the consonants as long as the vowels.
  3. If you aim for correctness, you might want to compare the IPA symbols used in this reclist to your language to see if there are same vowels or consonants in your language. You can see the IPA list of your language by opening this link: wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:IPA/Spanish. Just change Spanish to the name of your language in English (Portuguese, Japanese, Korean, German, Norwegian, etc).

5. VOWELS:

Click (sound) to hear how a vowel sounds like. Sounds are provided by Denelson83 and RoachPeter. If you want to merge some vowels, you can merge V with A, U with @, o with O, and { with E. This way you'll only have 64 lines. You can see both version on the Reclist section.

8. OTO:

Consonants are separated in to five groups:
  1. Fricatives (s, z, S, Z, f, v, T, D, h)
  2. Nasals (m, n, N)
  3. Approximants (j, l, r, w)
  4. Stops (p, b, t, d, k, g)
  5. Affricates (tS, dZ)

I recommend using setParam to oto this reclist.
  1. After you copy the base oto to your voicebank folder, open up the voicebank through setParam.
  2. Go to Options -> Mouse and Key Settings -> When Left Blank is Modified -> Check Other Parameters are Modified Accordingly.
  3. Move the left blank according to the type:
    • For CV affricates, move the left blank marker so that the overlap is positioned before the fricative starts. Then adjust the preutterance and consonants manually.
    • For any other CV and all VC, click and drag the left blank marker so that the preutterance is positioned between the consonant and vowel.
    • For C and V, click and drag the left blank marker so that the left blank marker is on the steady consonant or vowel region.
  4. Adjust the Right Blank marker if needed.
  5. Go to the next row, and repeat step 3 and 4.

See these examples for more information:

a. CV (fricatives, nasals, and approximants)

Overlap: 50
Preutterance: 100
Consonant: 150
