Does Synthesizer V Pro come with a voice?

Does Synthesizer V Pro come with a voice? I would think it would. I then tried to download the Eleanor voice and have no idea where the computer put it nor how I am supposed to activate. It is awfully frustrating that they have zero tech support.

Anyone know how to get this off the ground? Thanks

No, purchasing SynthV Studio Pro only gives access to additional functions. Voices are sold separately.

Keep in mind that you can use paid voices with the Basic (free) edition of SynthV Studio. There are starter packs available that include both the Pro version and a paid voice ([Bundle] Synthesizer V Studio Pro + Any Voice Database - Dreamtonics Store or https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B08B3CNY2D), but purchasing the Pro version is not a requirement. You must install the editor (SynthV Studio) before you can install a voice like Eleanor Forte.

If you’re looking for help, please also include your operating system and details about the issue you’re having, otherwise we can only guess at what might help. Since you seem to have issues with installation, I’ll start there.

Windows

  1. Download the SynthV Studio installer:
    Basic edition from index - powered by h5ai v0.29.2 (https://larsjung.de/h5ai/) (svstudio-basic-setup-latest.exe)
    Pro edition from whichever storefront you purchased from, or the email link they sent you
  2. Download the voice installer:
    Most lite voices (free) are available here: index - powered by h5ai v0.29.2 (https://larsjung.de/h5ai/)
    Voice installers are .svpk files and are the same regardless of operating system
  3. Run the SynthV Studio installer, follow the instructions
  4. Run the voice installer, follow the instructions
  5. That’s it.

MacOS

  1. Download the SynthV Studio installer:
    Basic edition from index - powered by h5ai v0.29.2 (https://larsjung.de/h5ai/) (svstudio-basic-setup-latest.pkg)
    Pro edition from whichever storefront you purchased from, or the email link they sent you
  2. Download the voice installer:
    Most lite voices (free) are available here: index - powered by h5ai v0.29.2 (https://larsjung.de/h5ai/)
    Voice installers are .svpk files and are the same regardless of operating system
  3. Run the SynthV Studio installer, follow the instructions
  4. Run the voice installer, follow the instructions
  5. That’s it.

Linux (using the Eleanor Forte lite and Saki AI lite voices as examples)

  1. Download installers, either from index - powered by h5ai v0.29.2 (https://larsjung.de/h5ai/) (svstudio-basic-setup-latest.zip) or via command line:
    wget https://resource.dreamtonics.com/download/Synthesizer%20V%20Studio%20Basic/latest/svstudio-basic-linux64-latest.zip -P ~/Downloads
    wget https://resource.dreamtonics.com/download/Voice%20Databases/eleanor-lite-install-100.svpk -P ~/Downloads
    wget https://resource.dreamtonics.com/download/Voice%20Databases/saki-ai-lite-install-101.svpk -P ~/Downloads
    The files are now in your ~/Downloads folder.

  2. Navigate to the folder you want to install SynthV Studio to (in this example I use the home directory for simplicity, but you might want to use /opt or /usr)
    cd ~

  3. Unzip the SynthV Studio files:
    unzip ~/Downloads/svstudio-basic-linux64-latest.zip

  4. Enter the SynthV Studio folder:
    cd "Synthesizer V Studio Basic"

  5. Install voice svpk (in this example, Eleanor Forte Lite):
    ./synthv-studio ~/Downloads/eleanor-lite-install-100.svpk

  6. SynthV Studio will open and show a popup for the voice installation. Follow the on-screen instructions.
    Repeat for each voice.
    In the future you can simply start the program with ./synthv-studio since the voices are already installed.
