Well. I would have to quote Kennedy on this one cause sometimes some of us just want to do thing not because it is easy but because it is hard. I am purely into music for my own pleasure, I don't expect to ever earn a buck on it. I have turned other hobbies into work and with it comes preassure and deadlines that I don't need more in my life.wagtunes wrote:That's correct. But even if you could get a license and software for free, the process is not for the feint of heart. For one thing, you have to find a vocalist and record all the necessary phonemes, whatever they are. There are tons of them. Then you have to go through the conversion process and "fix" all the problem ones.GearNostalgia wrote:
Well I red about it in some UTAU forum that it was not possible for regular users. You had to have a special license from Yamaha and some special software too.
A typical voice bank takes a good year to do.
Do you REALLY want to go through all that? If you're that dedicated, a license and some software isn't going to stop you. So that part of it is a non issue.
This isn't something a casual user is going to do. Hell, I wouldn't even want to do it even if I could get Celine Dionne down here to record all the parts.
People do this for the purpose of selling the libraries and making money.
It doesn't seems to be so easy to make voices for UTAU, but there is some people enjoying doing it, I guess that Vocaloid cant be much harder than UTAU so I guess some would do it. I have a five year old that love to sing so I could see myself spending a lot of time on it just cause it would be cool to have my kid as a Vocaloid. But from I have digged up about it in forums it seems that you have to have some "corporate license" for it. So it may not only be a matter of blood sweat and tears, but also a big wad of cash to pay Yamaha.
