"Opening" a vowel sound

I have a song where Lola has to sing the word “good” on the high F at the top of her range. The sound she produces is very “tight” or “closed” and sounds pretty awful. I’ve tried changing the actual vowel sound and tried altering various things like harmonics and resonance. The trouble is, there are so many things that can be altered it’s taking me hours of trial and error. Can anyone tell me which control parameter will change the vowel sound from “tight/closed” to one more open and less strained.
Thanks
Chris

The pitch is F4, yes?

For the offending word, try reducing the clearness to 30-35, and the brightness to about 45, that tames down the harshness a bit. Perhaps try swapping the U phoneme for Q or @U. Both should in theory sound very wrong but its so high you might get away with it! 8)

Yes, the note is F4. Thanks for the useful suggestions. Changing the vowel to @U seems to have been the most useful. (So, good becomes goad!!) Another interesting thing I’ve noticed, is that on these uncomfortabe high notes, the volume of the sound on the particular syllable is quite a bit less than on the others. I’ve had to compensate for this by editing the wave file and artificially adjusted the amplitude of that portion of wave. I would rather do this than play about with the dynamics in the vocaloid software.
