    I'm (almost) finished my first CV voicebank (currently named "attempt 4", lol). I pretty much threw this together in a day, and now as I test it, not only did I miss a bunch of sounds (kyo, jyo, jya, etc-this can be easily fixed) but whenever my Utau sings shorter notes it's just the beginning of the syllable. So a short "shi" sounds like "shhh" and a short "su" is "sss". There's probably an easy fix, but I'm super new to OTO-ing and I'm just disappointed.

    If OTO help means that I have to pay (and don't get me wrong, I completely understand why-it's work that's being done for someone else), then I can't accept it cause I'm broke lol.


    on the other hand, I almost finished my first voicebank, so that's still an accomplishment. I know she'll sound really nice once she gets fixed up.

    It's probably an oto issue. I can't open UTAU to take any screenshots of a completed oto, but I found this guide. "Su" and "shi" are in the soft consonants section. If you follow it, the problem should be fixed (it sounds like an offset/preutterance problem from what you said about the drawn-out "ssss").

    ...Also, you mentioned recording samples such as "jyo" and "jya." Those aren't really necessary for a CV Japanese voicebank, so if you don't want to record/oto those, you don't have to. This resource has a list of syllables that aren't needed, in case any of them are in the reclist you're using.

    I hope this helps somewhat!

    There's also a problem with sounds ending too early, I think it must have something to do with the overlap or preutterance. Your tutorials seem to help, so I'll fix them up sometime soon
    Thank you!

    If you are interested, I can go over the oto and help. My oto comission prices are somewhat high i guess but I do CV for free up to a maximum of 3 Pitches or voicebanks per user.

    If this is about OTO-ing for me, I appreciate the offer, but I should probably edit that part of my post out. I've realized I want to try to fix it myself, since I've already put a lot of work into it, I want to learn how and I won't have the money to pay every time I want to make a new bank lol. Thank you so much for the offer!
    If you want, I could send it over once it's finished and you could give me tips on how to fix it, if you can find what the problem is. It's just a basic CV one, so I believe that falls under your free offer. But no pressure. I don't want to take up your time.
    Thanks again!

    Thank you so much! I'll have the remaining syllables recorded and roughly oto-ed for tomorrow.

    I’ve figured out what the main problem is but not how to fix it.
    The sounds all start and end before they’re supposed to.

    WELL I LIED.
    "Tomorrow" definitely means two weeks, right? Yeah. Sure.
    Sorry, I've just been really busy. But she's all recorded and roughly oto-ed. If I could send her on pm, could you look her over? Thanks again for the offer!
