Can't fire!

There seems to be a fire bug. :D When I enter the word “FIRE” and request phoenemes for it nothing happens! I entered this word into the user dictionary and still got the same results. I entered the phoenemes that the user dictionary gave (auto was selected) and it acted like it was playing it but no sound!. Maybe Vocaloid is afraid of fire????

You’re Fired! LOL I havent tried that word yet, but words beginning in f are slow to develop. You might try shifting the word 1 or 2 sixteenth notesto the right or move the word before it left. Hope it works for ya.

I had a look at fire…. you are right, it isnt in the vocaloid word dictionary and it really should be. Anyway, if you put it into the user dictionary with auto on it comes up with something like “f aI @r”…. these phonemes should sound pretty close.

A possible reason why it isnt sounding for you could be because it uses 2 vowels (aI and @r), so is technically 2 syllables, so vocaloid wants to spread it over 2 notes….. though it sounds like one!! It is confusing.

So vocaloid is expecting it to be sung like “figh” “er”… follow? So you either have to type the word with a hyphen… “fi-re” if you want the whole word on one note, or if you want it to have 2 notes then write “fi-” on the first and “re” on the second.

Hope that helps.

Yes, you’re right about the two syllable thing. Thank you. It was one of the things that shocked me from the beginning about Vocaloid, that you were forced to accept it’s vowel usage. I’ve been using TextAssist for about 5 or 6 years and there you have total control over everything. Everything that is but the quality of the sound. Now I get this better quality but at the sacrifice of control. I’m sure I’ll get used to it.
