I’m excited to hear Gumi is coming to SynthV. I really wish this would happen for Avanna if Zero-G decides not to update her. I love this vocaloid most and she’s the first one I bought. When tuned right (which I found easy) Avanna sounds unique and beautiful!
I haven’t got SynthV yet, not even the trial version. I got V6 because I already had V4. I thought it was best because I was already familiar with these singers and I could still use Avanna.
I need to admit, I find getting SynthV to be a daunting task. Not monetarily, but for the sheer amount of things that can go wrong. Just some of the titles of posts on this forum had me freaked out. It seems to be better now and the voices sound amazing. I also love the amount of male vocals they are releasing.
What are some challenges you wish you’d known about before you started using SynthV virtual singers? If you’ve gone from Vocaloid to SynthV, what are some differences in you liked and disliked? I’ve heard poorly tuned vocals on both ends, so I don’t care about which brand is better sounding to you. I intended to get all of the virtual singers I want for my music.
I am fascinated by virtual singers in general and want a blend of many voices. Right now it’s just me, Avanna, Luka and Garage Band. I’ve set a goal of making at least 20 songs before buying another vocaloid and 50 songs before buying SynthV.
You didn’t ask for all of that, I’m sorry. But I’m really excited by this stuff.
Thank you for reading and I apologize for being so obnoxious in my last post. I was overly passionate and I’m sorry for that. Mostly apologizing to Claire. Sorry Claire and thank you for telling us this news about Gumi. The demos sound fantastic! Maybe it’ll pave the way for more voice platform crossovers.
Ps. (You didn’t ask for this either. Feel free to skip)
For those of you considering V6, here’s my experience.
V4 was the best but V6 isn’t ALL that bad, just too many steps for tuning. What took me 3 steps in V4 now takes 5 or more steps in V6. I’m making progress faster than in V4. But the editor is trying to do to much for me, making it easy to overtune the vocals.
The presets are customizable but overwhelming in number. You can create and name your own presets. Honestly, vocaloid singing quality has gone down with AI. I think they rushed too quickly because of what SynthV and Cevio have accomplished.
I personally don’t expect vocaloids to come sounding super realistic out of the box unturned. Some people enjoy the idea and sound of a robot trying to reach you and doing its best. They should have stuck with the V3 and V4 sound! Just my opinion, don’t mind me.
