I somehow have the impression, that the voice of Lola is actually Sade singing, anyone else but me? :D

Check:

Just a short part of the track i’m currently working on, kinda loopable, but interesting voice result imho :)

Not drunk enough. Lola and Sade may have the same class of voice, but I’m sure they are different. Perhpas Lola is British, but I coulda swore I hear the American R in there.

Lola is definitely British, but I thought she sounded like Nina Simone. Mind you, Nina would have had a bit of a problem with the sampling sessions….

great track….[size=59:34uxmflu]can we hear all of it?[/size:34uxmflu]
sounds a bit like a female youssou n’dour (or himself on a real special night!)
kind of african accent
japanese text sounds great.
really into stina nordenstam and air and the way it sounds when they sing in english.

great track,
for a moment it could have been the real thing
i was duped for a few seconds thinking it was
till she sang the word “suffocate”
after that i knew pretty much it was Lola.
she doesnt like her voice stressed by quick changes,
and is not too good with lots of words.

the brain “ours” has an amazing way of finishing
sentences before the speaker finishes,you know
the scenario?
well a good example of missing words out that are
not needed is UB40’s Ali Campbell….consider

actual lyrics
“red red wine” or “i am a one in ten,a number on a list”

now in an average speech synthesis its not gonna sound too good.
lola will make it sound better,alas some parts will be a
real speech synthesis givaway.so now consider…..

Ali Campbell sings it like this,
“re- re- wi–” and “i am – one in teh,numbeh nl li—–“

i know,i know your thinking “put your money where your mouth is”
but its a feasible theory of attaining better ways to trick the ear
into believing your listening to a real person singing and not a bot.
we dont overload Lola,and the listener will finish the words anyway
and maybe not even know it.ill be testing this theory soon.

Yes Orion, you are absolutely right about the brain finishing off what the voice has started. (Was that re-re-wire? <img class=” /> )
I think the context is all important here – and the fact that you already know what the word is. You need to be careful though. I’m working on a piece for Lola where she sings the word “System”. This is a single word, and out of context she could easily be singing “Sister”. I know what she sings but others who have listened can’t tell. Increasing the length of the consonant m at the end doesn’t help here.

Yes – there’s that word “context” cropping up time and again. I’m having “help” :roll: from a teenager with the vocaloid part of a song I’m working on at the moment. Trouble is, apart from a stubborn refusal to even glance at the manual <img class=” /> when working over and over on isolated lines of lyrics (i.e. out of context) the tendency is to go overboard on detail to the extent that the lyrics become “mannered” to a fault. You start with Sade in mind and after cooking you end up with Julie Andrews. LOL. :( It seems that most of us on the forums have our own agendas for what we want the vocaloid(s) to do. Lots of classical/operatic mentions in particular. Lola was described as a British soul singer – where are the soul songs?

I think Lola sounds VERY much like Hayley Westenra!!
Check out Pokarekare Ana

Who is Lola supposed to be based on anyway?
