Synthesizer V AI Ninezero: New Masculine English Voice from Dreamtonics for Hard Rock and Metal

Dreamtonics has announced an upcoming English male voice in rock style:

It’s a pity the didn’t add the announcement here, on their own official forum… :confused:

The first time I heard the demo, I thought perhaps it was having trouble with the /s/ sound, but there are typos in the lyric - “bells” and “in”. Maybe they wanted to avoid any copyright infringement on a public domain song first published in 1857? :upside_down_face:

Finally. :slight_smile:

Likely just a side-effect of the staff not being native English speakers. The Japanese version of the song is actually sung as “jingle bell, jingle bell” without the /s/.

Does anyone know how far in advance they start teasing a voicebank prior to the actual release? The post mentions coming soon but I wasn’t sure what “soon” means, in this case.

Also, do they typically provide updates on the progress and release timeline or do they take a wait and see approach?

I believe in the past when Dreamtonics has teased Chinese vocals (Weina, Cong Zheng, Xuan Yu) they have released almost exactly a month after the initial announcement.

That said, aside from those examples Dreamtonics tends to release things with no warning whatsoever (Natalie), and Kevin had a significantly longer gap between the initial teaser and actual release (6+ months).

Thanks for the info Claire. I am just glad to see another voicebank is on the way and that they are branching out into a different genre / style. The technology is already quite amazing and I can’t wait to see where things go as the develop a larger network of developers and voice talents for their voicebanks.

We can also see a new form of parameter visualization during playback in the demo video, so it seems like Ninezero’s release will coincide with the next update to SynthV Studio itself (presumably either 1.8.1 or 1.9.0).

Now THAT’S what I want! I will be buying this as soon as I’m able…
I wonder what he sounds like with overdrive at something other than 100% - I will find out in due course :crazy_face:
