I just bought Lola and there are a few words I want to use that are not in the default dictionary. I read the manual and figured out how to put a word and its phoneme in the dictionary. For some reason all I get is silence when I play the track. One word I tried to use that didnt work was “every” when I put it in the dictionary it came up with the phoneme version “e v r i: ” i put that in put it didnt work, only silence as I mentioned earlier. Anyone have a solution? This is making me crazy, hopefully I didnt spend all this money for nothing.

I think you will need to spread the word every (e v r i:) over two notes. Type the phonemes in the phoneme boxes directly, rather than the word in the text box. Type e v in the first note and r i: in the next. If she is singing the word on one note of your tune, you must still treat it as two syllables, therefore two notes. If you get silence on a note or notes (assuming there is nothing wrong with your sound/midi setup) it is because Vocaloid does not understand the word or phoneme combination. You will find that you have to do quite a lot of tweaking to get it to sing what you want.

try typing “ev-ery” on one note…. or “ev-” on the first note and “ery” on the 2nd if the 2 syllables have different pitches.

Vocaloid needs to be told if the word has more than one syllable. (also it wont allow more than one vowel sound per note unless you use the hyphen – to seperate the syllables)…. it makes sense once you have done it a few times.

Ah ha!! A new trick I’ve learned. I’ve been splitting the note to 2. Didn’t realize I could use the hyphen in one note. Good tip!!!!!

hehehe!! Gray I have another trick for you then….

make a word with 2 syllables on one note using the hyphen as we just discussed….. now double click on the note and click ‘setup’ at the bottom left of the window that opens…. now use the mouse to drag the exact position of the second syllable!!

Just the ones in the zero-g section. I have some half finished ones…. I might finish them eventually.

well I wish you would put one of the midi files ya did here. You seem to be a little sharper than your average stupid ass vocaloid user ( that’d be me).
