Good day to the community! This is my first (selfish, interested, leechy) post.
After not using Synth-V for a while, I recently acquired Saros voicebank.
Being a native Spanish speaker I installed 1.11.0b1 and the proper beta voicebank for Saros. I am really impressed. I am not a native English speaker, but I speak it every day and I can detect many types of mispronunciations. My nice surprise is that Spanish pronunciation seems to work BETTER without any correction at all. Incredible!
Then yesterday I was aware of 1.11.0b2 released on the day before… along with ~34 new voicebank beta versions! Well, I already had Asterian and Solaria and… Bingo! They worked as promised by Eclipsed Sounds. Much earlier than I expected. And really well!
My surprise is that then I installed the rest of the beta voices for which I have license: Nine-zero, Kevin, Mai, Natalie. And they all work really well. No tweaking (well, except tick the “Eurpean z” and sometimes I prefer to have stronger oclusives (just add " ’ ") or stronger “r” (just duplicate the letter). No need to look at phonetic tables, it works much better / easier in Spanish than it did in English. I suspect that the very closed Spanish phonetic rules make the task easier.
Now: I realize there are so many NEW beta voicebanks that possibly could include the (good) Spanish capability. Many of them are Chinese or Japanese. I am REALLY interested to know if they have the functionality.
Could Dreamtonics / any user with Japanese or Chinese voices could confirm that any of these betas can sing in Spanish? Could anyone run a short test for me using Spanish lyrics? (It could be simply many “G” quarter notes singing a couple of lines of Spanish from the Internet).
Thansk a lot.
