Great, I wanna hear it :)

As for pricing, we understand that lots of users are reluctant to pay $200 upfront for a cloud-based instrument, especially from a new company. So we'll offer our voices either in a pure subscription model (monthly fee), or a rent-to-own model, I'm not sure yet.

And we don't have plans to let users create their own voices yet.
Wait! Coud-based, and subscription model. Will I also have to smite my first-born? :scared:

Hey be careful man, you're sounding almost as sarcastic as me. Oh wait, I don't use sarcasm. I just come out and say when something sucks and then get crucified for it.

because what you say is all that matters? 'I just come out and say when something sucks'''? crucified? you need to calm down, get some perspective.

if you have an opinion, voice it. ie if you don't like the idea of a cloud-based plugin. otherwise (like myself, for example), it's just your opinion, and ultimately, not that important. :(
always one plugin short of perfection...

My opinion important? Please, my existence on this planet isn't important. Not the point. Point is, everybody else here can say whatever they want about anything and nobody says boo to them. I say it and I get called out on it, constantly. The hypocrisy is almost laughable.

And I get it that I'm not liked because I have a big mouth and don't care what I say. But man, there are some people here who say things that either have me rolling my eyes or laughing my ass off. Sometimes both as el-bo's comment really was hysterical.

But it's all good as long as it's not me saying it.

That's the reality of my existence here. And I've finally accepted it, which is why I don't even care anymore when somebody tells me off or tells me to stay out of a thread if I have nothing good to say, or whatever it is they want me to do. I just ignore them now and go on and say whatever I want anyway.

It's liberating to finally get to this point. You should try it sometime.

The business model of this product is beyond laughable. For starters, $200? For a subscription model? Seriously? What exactly is it that they think they invented here? Do you REALLY think this thing sounds THAT much better than Vocaloid? If you do, you're looking at this product through very rose colored glasses. It still doesn't sound like a real human being with all a human's complexities as far as vocal timbers.

And no product is ever going to get that good. At least not in my lifetime.

So yeah, given the price, the model and all the problems with running this thing, I don't see it being a big success, which is a shame because diction wise, it is slightly better than Vocaloid. I see potential here. But there's just too much baggage.

And before you say I'm not a potential customer, you're wrong. I'm probably more into vocal synthesis than anybody here. Just check my Soundcloud page. I keep praying for a real human like vocal engine. This isn't it. This isn't even close to being it.

Honestly, anybody who thinks this actually sounds so amazing should just get Vocaloid 5, pay a lot less money in the process, and get something that is virtually just as good.

Emvoice is no major breakthrough in vocal synthesis.

All you need to figure that out is just open up your ears.

Canadians are often confused with merkins... we are generally more polite, located further north and somehow even more hairy.

I wonder if there can be a happy medium between something like Emvoice and something like Vocaloid, the plain marketing of Emvoice just does not appeal to newcomers, meanwhile Vocaloid's marketing just causes it to have its own isolated community.
