I wish we could play notes on that virtual keyboard to get a reference so I don’t have to keep drawing notes and moving them around and keep pressing play to see if I’ve got Miriam singing correctly hehe.

Annoying, isn’t it?

I guess the expectation is that you physically pull out a keyboard, hook up a midi connection and then import it into the project.

Even the most basic of music-creation software allows you to use a virtual keyboard. Go figure…..

Of course, I would sacrifice this functionality for another one – the ability to generate a decent vocal.

Lol, yeah I know what you mean when it comes to making vocals with it, pretty hard to get something to sound decent. Right now I’m playing with all the alternative phonemes until I get something smooth. Good thing is since I’ve been doing that I’ve sped up my time in generating some okay sounding vocals but I’m going to keep trying. What I do is just open a diff sequencer of choice, record the midi notes on that with an instrument which is sort of similar to vocals, let’s say a wind instrument like a flute or a stringed instrument like a violin, get the basic melody going and then I export the midi from there and import it into vocaloid and add some tweaks here and there. The menu item Job–> Randomize helps speed things up by varying the pitch here and there but I like to also go from a low pitch to a normal pitch at the beginning of certain words in the phrases and pitch them down at the end of certain words, like long ones with vibrato to make them sound more natural. I actually don’t use harmonics much, nor the resonance, I still have to learn those like the amplitube and bandwith etc. I would definitely go for the ability to generate a decent vocal over the keyboard thing on the side anyday hehe. That would make my day :)

You can also input the lyrics with a midi sequencer. Use no punctuation marks and no space after the word. I copy the melody to a separate track, then change each note to a lyric. That prevents an accidental wrong quantity for the measure/beat. After importing the midi to vocaloid, all the lyrics are in the proper place and ready for a phenome transfer.
