No printed manual is included with the product.
VOCALOID4 Editor comes with only an electronic user manual (in PDF format). No printed manual is included with the software. To view the user manual, use the "Start" menu in Windows to select "User Manual", or start VOCALOID4 Editor, select the "Help" menu, and then select "User Manual".
When I edit control parameters, the effect of the pencil tool or line tool extends to the end of a song. Can I change this behavior?
Go to "Settings" -> "Preferences" and select the "VOCALOID Sequence" tab. In the "Control Parameters" section, select the "Draw control params like V2" check box.
I want to transpose the entire part.
You can select all notes in the part by pressing the [Ctrl] + [Shift] + [A] keys simultaneously. Then, use the mouse or the up and down arrow keys on the keyboard to transpose the part as you like.
I want to add a new track to create harmonies, but I cannot enter any notes.
When you add a track manually, a part is not generated automatically. Use the pencil tool to add a part to the measure in which you want to create a harmony, and then enter notes.
I want to change the master tuning.
Under the "Settings" menu, select "Preferences", and then on the "Other Settings" tab, change the value for "Master Tune". (Settings: 415.3 to 466.2 Hz)
I want to insert breaths.
For VOCALOID4 Voice Banks, the installation DVD might contain breath files in its WAV folder. Use a drag-and-drop operation to paste a breath file on a WAV (MONO) track, or under the "File" menu, select "Import", and then "Wave (W)". Note that some Voice Banks might not contain breath files. If you have any questions, contact the distributor of your Voice Bank.
I want to export (render) the selected portion of a song as a WAV file.
You can use "Start Marker" and "End Marker" to specify the portion of the song to be exported as a WAV file. Click the "Start Marker" or "End Marker" button on the transport tool bar to display the markers on the rulers of both the Track Editor and the Musical Editor. If you drag these markers to the start and end positions for export, only the specified section of the song is exported as a WAV file. This can also be done by clicking and holding the mouse's left button on the section with the green border (the top area on the ruler). After the mouse pointer changes into a hand cursor, drag-and-drop to set the start and end positions.
Can I export (render) a complete song or a VOCALOID part in WAV format?
Yes. For details, see the topic of "Wave" from the "File" -> "Export" subsection of the "Menu bar" section in the User Manual. If you want to create an audio CD, select "44100Hz/16bit/Stereo" to export your songs.
