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…
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?
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).
Ninezero has been officially released on Dreamtonics’s International and Taobao shops as well as AH-Software! What’s more, he comes with a bonus Vocal Phrases Pack of over 200 short and expressive phrases!
