Vocaloid timing problems

I’ve been putting off vocalizing I want you(shes so heavy) by the Beatles till I got better with vocaloid. I finally did the song and after making the wave file I put it in my studio slong with the midi file. By bar 5 when the vocal starts, the vocal was off 90 ticks. I shifted the midi file and it started out great. By measure 64 it was off 90 ticks again. I discovered that tempo changes in the midi file were not playing the same in vocaloid. All the tempo changes were there in vocaloid. I noted that some of the tempo changes were on odd beats such as 2, 3 or 4. I deleted the tempo changes both in vocaloid and the midi. The file worked good then. A couple places in the song don’t have quite as long a held notes as should be, but listenable anyway. When working midi files for vocaloid, notice tempo changes on odd beats and try to eliminate them unless you really love shifting midi or wave files.

Sorry Gray – I notice that no-one smart has replied to this very real problem you’ve been having. I don’t use tempo changes any more with vocaloid – I couldn’t get them to work – plain and simple. I’m going to send up a demo mp3 soon that uses a big tempo change mid-way, but I avoided the vocaloid link there as it was WILDLY out of time, so just kicked the WAV back into place. Well spotted, though, that man….. <img class=” />

I haven’t had severe problems except when the tempo is on an odd beat, 2,3,4,etc, If it’s on 1 it remains pretty close. except the tome the word “no” through it off. Changed the word to mow and it was near perfect. Explain that one!!

Maybe it’s an “undocumented feature” of the software that will be dropped from the next update…..? <img class=” />

Hopefully so. The timing problem is very time consuming as is most vocaloid problems. But when the timing is far off, it stands out much greater than chipmunk sounds and bad pronunciation.
