I have recently purchased Leon, and I have been expiramenting with it for a while. The porblem that I have is that I can’t seem to get away from the computerized, synthesized sound of the voice. Am I missing something obvious? are there any tricks or hints?
Any information would be helpful.
Thank you.
(ps – I suppose the name fits)

Probably you are a newbie here :-)
Everything you get either with LEON or with other libraries sounds unnatural and is more on the amusing side than a real vocal. The problem lies within the synthesis technology itself as well as in controlling this synthesis, i.e. introducing parameters. Try to apply available Expressive elements: Attack and Vibrato, as they are rather natural. Take a look at the examples at…../index.htm created with Performance Modeling technology (automatic calculation of expressive elements). These examples more fully demonstrate what Vocaloid is capable of.
In general, even if we can’t currently achieve a realistically sounding vocal, we get a means for:
1. modeling musical compositions that can be later performed by live vocalist;
2. creating compositions with artificial voice as the example of new vocal aesthetics;
3. producing rather convincing back vocal tracks.

Good luck!

I’m a newbie with Vocaloid also. I got it to enhance pads and ethereal background tracks. It is great for that.

Take Care
