Hi! I'm here to discuss some features and changes that I, and you, would like to see in the next major version of UTAU. I am aware that this subject has been discussed before, and I would like to bring it up again. So let's begin. Change 1: instant rendering yes obviously this would be fantastic I think this can be achieved in the same way that you make voicebanks in DeepVocal - that the voicebanks should be built or compiled into one package, in a similar way that you'd compile a program into a ready-to-use .exe file. This would allow for instant and responsive playback, as the rendered data has already been made. I'm not sure how you would go about testing the voicebank for errors or configuring it in the same editor - the only way would be to keep the voicebank's project and change that accordingly, then compile it again and put it into UTAU to test with. If you know what I mean. One problem that could arise from this, however, is that you'll be limited to how many resamplers you can use. If a system like this does get implemented hypothetically, you'll only get to use the new resampler that's included with UTAU as it would be designed for this new system. You could only hope that the resampler does a good job at resampling. Heck, Moresampler could be implemented somehow! (that would be good tho) Change 2: UI yeah a big UI change would be great I spent almost 2 hours on this new UI mockup: It's not terribly great, but there's a few improvements over the UI we already have! I've made the UI mockup in MockFlow. You can register for free - however you'll only be able to make one UI mockup. -2.a: Notes- Ok so number one: NO REST NOTES ok that's it Secondly, the new UI should support CV, VCV, CVVC/VCCV and Arpasing/Cz lyrics and display the phonetics for the notes accordingly, like these mockups: VCV CVVC Arpasing Cz English You should also have the ability to toggle this phoneme view on or off, and additionally for VCV you can toggle rest notes on or off as well. -2.b: Toolbars- fairly simpler than the toolbars we already have: -2.c: Envelopes and pitch bends- Envelopes will be sitting on the bottom of the screen as if they're parameters in other software like Synth V: There's also checkboxes for turning on or off pitch bends, VCV rest notes and phonemes as mentioned before. If pitch lines were turned on they would probably look like this: (ye I know I had to improv in paint as;lfjas;ljf;j) -2.d: Themes- There should be a few themes built into the editor that you can pick from, as well as a theme editor. Change 3: Multiple tracks yes have multiple tracks to work with not too much to explain here, it is what it is Welp I can't think of anything else significant here, this took me a while idk what do you think? :P Please let me know!
