Has anyone noticed a more nasal sound since the new update or was it there all along and I’m just now noticing?? I be glad when They update to give Leon some lips. That’s why he has trouble pronouncing words ya know. It’s possible that he don’t have a tongue also, but I haven’t checked that one!!!!

It seems you can buy Vocaloid Leon or Lola for £160 at digital village.

Best price I could find. As we all paid £200 for this some months ago, maybe, if you want Miriam, it’s just a case of waiting.
By the way, if you read the “product description” on this page you may need to get hold of a sick bag…….

Its possible that the nasal sound you describe might be caused by some changes that were implemented in the synthesis engine….

For example the way the switch over points are calculated has been changed. They control which different articulations happen on a specific note.

The reason for the change was because there were certain dead pitches/notes where Vocaloid (all voice fonts) sounded synthetic (honky), this anomaly only happened when the synthesis engine was pitching down an articulation a long way from where it was originally sampled.

So now the switch points have been moved. The result is you are much less likely to find these problems, and the overall synthesis will be more consistent and realistic. The downside is that some words at some pitches will sound different to the previous version, because different articulations are coming into play.

I dont know if this is the problem you are describing (but I thought you may want to know what the main change in the synthesis was anyway). I hope it made sense!

Perhaps try the same words in a different pitch maybe a few semitones up or down? Sometimes nasalness can be fixed by reducing the clearness quite a way, shortly after the start of the note.

I thought so. Especially nasal on the ee sounds. Thanks for the tip on how to fix. Increasing gender factor at the nasal point also seems to help.
