Quick Tuning Tips for Beginners

Quick Tuning Tips for Beginners

Some of these are actual tips but some of them are more just very simplistic explanations of some vocab. When I first started I was too lazy to read any detailed guides or anything so I pretty much just learned stuff from other people's USTs if they were already tuned, so it took a long time for me to figure out a lot of basic info cuz I just ignored it.
  • STP cuts off time from the beginning of a note, in milliseconds
  • Modulation is basically how autotuned something is - but 0% is the most autotuned, and 100% is the least. Didn't get this one for at least a solid year.
  • The first thing you should do with a UST: Ctrl-A, Ctrl-E, then clear preutterance, overlap, and STP. Flags and modulation too if you want.
  • Flags are useful so actually use them. And like remember what they're for.
    • Also actually use consonant velocity. Especially in English UTAU.
  • Don't look down on CV UTAU :sad:
  • In VCCV English, the ending notes don't have to be as short as possible. In fact a lot of times it sounds better if it's longer.
    • Also, in English singing, a lot of the time it's non-rhotic, so don't stress about if r-colored vowels sound bad. Or rather, they might actually sound bad, so just leave them out.
  • Also in VCCV English, use P2P3. P1P4 sounds very slightly better but it's not worth the pain of having to go in and fix almost every damn note.
  • No one really expects you to be that good at mixing. Seriously, just do your best and it's probably alright.
  • Don't be scared of using CVVC. It's actually surprisingly easy!

Simple and to the point. Descriptive explanations, but gets to the point quickly. Very helpful for beginners, including myself.
Very nice! I liked your simple explanation of modulation!
This should be very helpful for beginners who want some quick tips!
