UTAU tutorial - CV Oto's by Ataela UTAU tutorial - CV Oto's by Ataela
Sorry this is coming in a day late, I argued with Hypercam for about two hours after my recording kept getting off time, and that turned me off making the tutorial yesterday. I'm going to make them picture tutorials instead since hypercam hates me ;-;

Anyway, here is my CV oto tutorial, I hope you find it useful! If you have any questions, let me know. My next tutorial will be about pitchbends!

Thanks for the lovely tutorial!

Though one question, I don't know whether I didn't notice or not but, does the pink bar has no function in a way?

The pink bar does have a function actually, but you'll only notice it on long notes. the area covered by the pink bar will not be 'stretched' on long notes. It's a way to keep your consonants from sound like a 'b' sound to a 'bbbbbb' sound when a long note is played. :)

Oh, so I should just keep them in the range of the consonants?

Ataela Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2014  Student Digital Artist
yes, usually just put it past the consonant, sliiiightly into the vowel. no more than 10% into the vowel, i'd say.

I have encountered another problem: whenever I copy'n'paste the hiragana symbol into the 'alias' box, it becomes a question mark. Why is it doing that?
Reply
:iconataela:
Ataela Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2014  Student Digital Artist
That's because your computer isn't in JP locale (where hiragana is actually typable). It's a computer setting, and I'm not sure if all computers have it?? But there are some tutorials for UTAU/Vocaloid users on youtube for people who need to learn how to activate it.

I am set in the Japanese locale. I'm sidestepping the issue for now by using the Essential Utau Toolkit which lets me convert any hiragana usts into romajji.

Ataela Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Is the problem just with you pasting characters into the program, or any ust already in hiragana?
Reply

IbAllAlone Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
The problem is me pasting characters into the program. The hiragana for any ust shows up as hiragana. I just can't paste any hiragana aliases into my voicebank. BTW, thank you for your time.

Not a problem, i think i know what it is!! Sometimes the fonts on certain websites etc doesnt transfer properly when pasting into a program like UTAU. you should try finding a different website to get the characters from, it actually used to happen to me quite a bit, haha!

This is incredibly helpful, I didn't understand oto'ing at all before this. But, I have a problem that I need help with. My frq files won't generate. I get a  'regenarte __.wav frq file' messafe and a question mark where the circle should be every time I try. I've moved Utau out of the Program Files, I've run it as an administrator: nothing. Help me please?

Hmmm, this is something I'm not entirely sure of. Did you move your UTAU out of program files BEFORE you started having this problem, or after?

Some of my syllables are off-sync like the S-based, W-Based, and Y-based. all the others are fine, though. How can I fix this?

Btw I am a male but my voice sounds nasal when rendered on UTAU, so I genderbent it to be female...

Off Sync? I'm not sure what you mean.

:icontakuminoobkiller:
TakumiNoobKiller Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2014
Never mind, and sorry about the late reply. It turns out that part of the consonant went over the vowel, causing the consonant to be so short that the vowel plays too soon, causing it to sound off-sync. Soon I'll record a VCV. I've made a song (wip only, not quite a demo) with my voicebank, and despite being at least (at least SOMEWHAT) Realistic, I'm not satisfied. I know how to oto a VCV, it's like a CV, but the overlap is extended over the previous vowel.
Your tutorial really helped, though! thanks!

my 'ru' creates a high pitched screeching sound, and i don't know why. Do you have an idea?
Reply
:iconataela:
Ataela Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2014  Student Digital Artist
That sounds like an old FRQ/PMK file! To fix it, you have 2 things you can do:

1)This is the easier method xD Go into UTAU, and open up the menu where you edit your oto. find the 'ru' sound, and click it so it's highlighted. Then you're going to hit the "initialize freq. map" button (if you're still in the JP ver of UTAU, the button might be in japanese, but it's on the bottom of the menu, second one from the left) and then click ok when a little screen comes up to remake the FRQ!
*note that method 2 won't work if you're using tips.exe because that resampler uses pmk files and not frq files, so if this doesnt work try method one.

2) go into your voicebank folder where all your wavfiles are saved, find the 'ru.wav" and somewhere near it there should be a "ru_wav.frq" or if you've been using the tips.exe resampler a "ru.wav.pmk" file. Delete them (but not the actual .wav file) and then rerender the sample in UTAU! It should fix the screeching sound.



What usually causes screeching sounds like that is that you might have re-recorded a sound, like 'ru.wav' after already playing it in UTAU and thus creating an FRQ for the sound. The frq goes along with the wavfile, but since the two sounds are different now, they 'clash' and make that highpitch screeching sound, from what I've come to understand. If that doesn't fix your problem, let me know and I'll try taking a look at the voicebank?

Very helpful tutorial for redoing the sad oto's of my early UTAUs~ XD

I do have one question though-- Where should the overlap be put for ch sounds? Like "chi" and "chu"

Ataela Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I usually use the 'soft consonant' method like with s sounds for ch sounds. I'm glad you find it useful!

What does the shaded pink area do?
Reply
:iconataela:
Ataela Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2013  Student Digital Artist
The area the pink bar covers is the area that will not be stretched or looped in UTAU. I find it's usually best to put it just a little after the vowel starts, that way it can stretch the rest of the vowel for the long notes. :D

Actualy, samples like kya, kyu, kyo, et. SHOULD have the preutt after the Y.  Spectrogram helps.  And hard consonants get negative overlap.  I use either -20 or -10.
