Hi All,
Now that I have Prima VST working in my host sequencers. I can take advantage of the real time Vocaloid adjustment sliders. This allows you to discover how many possible voices and voice variations you can create with just one Vocaloid.

The big advantage is of the real time sliders is you can tune and change your Vocaloid in Real Time. With Vocaloid 1 you would take notes as you change the singers settings, press play, save if you like or just go back and edit again and again.

I will have to make a video showing this. By just moving the Gender Slider with Prima singing. La La I Love Music in a loop. I was able to create voices that sound exactly like

1. Old Time Recordings from the 1890 to 1920
2. Singers Singing On Old Time Radio Broadcasts from 1930s and 1940s.
3. Early Rock and Roll Recordings.
4. Singing with a Megaphone like Rudy Valle.
5. Chipmunk Voices.
6. Cartoon Voices like Smurfs.
7. Robot and Droid Voices.
8. Change the Tone Quality of the Voice. Deeper or Higher.

That’s pretty good with just changing one slider or one vocal adjustment parameter. My Vocaloid phrase was only 13 seconds, so it only took me 2 mins to find the above instant Vocaloid Voice adjustments.

One can also change the tonal quality of the voice, to a whisper mode, nasal twang like Nashville, and a falsetto.

If you are a student or a teacher you can pick up Florida Studio Fruity Loops edition for only 59 bucks. You can not record live into Fruity Loops, but you can import and edit wav files.

Florida Studio Producer adds the ability to record guitars, vocals, etc live.

I will try to get a video showing the above up by the end of the month.

Warning. You will want to write down your adjustment settings. Because the Vocaloid 2 Real Time Control Settings are not saved in Florida Studio when you save your project. You have to go into the Vocaloid 2 Real Time settings and spend a few seconds, setting up your Vocaloid 2 Control Panel the same way you had it when you saved your project.

Happy Vocaloid Singing

you know you need a licence to give sex change operations to vocaloids right?

nahh!! im sorry that was wide open im kidding however theres some places who claim to like vocaloid but the mods and yes the users to could use a gender change mainly because they are walking pussys that pick on people they could learn from you how to treat people and vocaloids right tim

im not in the best of moods today i whitnessed something done to a member of vocaloid otaku that just pissed me off that place already had me pissed after the way they treated my sister now they treated a new vocaloid owner just as badly…im about to do something thats proly realy stupid but its got to be done .. this has gone on long enough

keep up the good work

gone to make lots of breaking bone sounds

Hi Everyone,
Florida Studio seems to open to a default pattern sequencer. A pattern can be any kind of rhythm pattern, or a melodic pattern or riff.

This would be great for Vocal Percussion tracks. As well as any kind of vocal riffs.

Florida has a set of 100 patterns, at least to get you going. And you can create and save any kind of pattern you want.

I prefer to by pass the pattern sequencer entirely and load with a normal tracks or channel view. But I do not know how to do that yet.

All of Florida Studios many midi editing tools, treat your Vocaloid Track as just a midi file. So you can loop it, transpose it, chop up or slice up the beats, use an arrpeggeator, apply different kinds of filters and effects.

The sound of your midi track just plays the sounds or lyrics in your Vocaloid 2 Lyric Window instead of say using a piano sample or a guitar sample.

The Vocaloid is both your plug in synth as well as your synth preset.

So you see people making videos with a Vocaloid Singing Track over backing instrumental tracks. But if you are using Vocaloid Realtime VST or Vocaloid Rewire. Then its possible to do all your backing tracks, drums, guitars, bass, keyboards, with your Vocaloid as all the different instruments.

Since most Vocaloid 1 and Vocaloid 2 owners seem to just be using the stand alone editor. I do not think they realize that its possible for the Vocaloids to sing just about any kind of backing track part or loop.

Also the tonal qualities of the human voice change greatly as one moves the human voice in different octaves. And the Vocaloids since they are based on real singers singing, always can have a lot of tonal variety just by shifting octaves.

Vocaloid Prima can easily out whistle tone Mariah Carey or any singing star. As can the other Vocaloids. One can also attempt to sing words with the Vocaloids in Extreme Octaves.

Florida Studio’s Piano Roll editor offers dozens of edits done to the midi notes. Transposing up or down by octaves is much faster than in the stand alone editor.

Hi Everyone
Nothing is easier than changing any Vocaloids voice with the Gender Factor. Make your male Vocaloids sound female, and turn your female Vocaloids into male singers.

1. Make some copies of your Vocaloid and give each copy a new name. In the Singer Edit Screen.

2. Then change the Gender Factor Setting and Save Your Changes to your newly named Vocaloid. Try changing the values by tens to start with.

Here are some Gender Factor Edits done on Prima, but you can do something similar with any Vocaloid.

Just remember Vocaloid 1s have a mid point of 64. and Vocaloid 2s have a mid point of 0. So 64 on a Vocaloid 1 equals 0 on a Vocaloid 2, if you are transferring settings between a Vocaloid 1 and Vocaloid 2.

1. Male Prima set Gender Factor to + 127.

2. Mellow Male + 54

3. Whistle Prima + 39

4. Megaphone Prima + 70

5. Noisy Nasal – 17

6. Air Prima – 41

7. Chipmunk Prima – 68

After you test the above with a few notes or some song lyrics. Be sure to transpose your notes up and down to try out different octaves.

Prima can sing more notes than are found on a piano keyboard and you can get quite a wide vocal tone color range just by changing octaves.
