VOCALOID4 Editor for Cubase
Do you have a user manual?
To view the user manual, select "User Manual" from the "Help" menu. If you are using a Windows operating system, you can also view the "User Manual" by following these steps: In the "Start" screen of your computer, click "VOCALOID Editor for Cubase 32bit" (for 64-bit Windows: "VOCALOID Editor for Cubase 64bit"), and then select "Manuals" to open the User Manual. A PDF reader, such as Adobe Reader, is required to read the user manual.
Can I install the release version even with the trial version installed?
No, installation of the release version might not be possible if the trial version is still installed in the same environment. Uninstall the trial version before installing the release version.
When trying to open VOCALOID4 Editor, I get a message saying "VOCALOID-specific data will be added to the selected MIDI part, and the selected part will be converted to a VOCALOID part. Once converted, the part cannot be restored." Is the software working properly?
Yes, your software is working properly. VOCALOID4 Editor can edit VOCALOID-specific information such as lyrics and vibratos. Therefore, when you open VOCALOID4 Editor, VOCALOID-specific information is added. Once this information is added, you cannot remove it.
Can I directly enter notes in real time from an external device, such as a MIDI keyboard, to VOCALOID4 Editor?
Yes. You can enter notes while playing an external MIDI instrument, such as a keyboard.
Is it possible to switch singers within a part?
No. You can specify only a single singer for one part. If you want to switch singers, you can create multiple parts and assign a different singer to each part. In Cubase, you can create multiple parts in a single track. This allows you to assign multiple singers to a single track. However, the waiting time configured in the "Preferences" window is essential to synthesize consonants. If you want to assign different singers, you must insert the waiting time between the end time for the first singer and the start time for the second singer. If notes exist within the range of the waiting time, the notes are not voiced due to delayed synthesis. If two parts to which different singers are assigned are adjacent to each other, it is best to create those parts in separate tracks. When a single singer is assigned to different parts, any neighboring notes can be voiced normally.
The "Velocity" and "Gender Factor" control parameters cannot be set to "0".
In VOCALOID4 Editor for Cubase, the minimum value that you can set in the parameters area for "Velocity" and "Gender Factor" is "1". This specification differs from that of VOCALOID3 and VOCALOID4 Editor, including the Portamento Timing parameter.
Can I apply the Job plug-in to the entire track?
No. You cannot apply it to the entire track. The Job plug-in is applied to parts.
Some notes are not played during playback.
Did you set a long "Waiting Time"? The "VOCALOID4 Inst" requires a waiting time before playback starts in order to process consonant synthesis. Therefore, notes that fall within the range of the waiting time might not be voiced. The same error might occur if the note falls within the range of the waiting time from the export position during audio mixdown, and within the range of the waiting time from the start of a part when freezing. In such cases, set lower values for both "Waiting Time" and "Pre-Send Time" in the "Preferences" settings. Consonant synthesis also requires a pre-send time. A longer pre-send time will produce clearer consonants. For the recommended settings, see the default values in the user manual.
When I import Vsqx files, one measure is automatically added at the start of the sequence.
Vsqx files were originally intended to be imported to VOCALOID3 and VOCALOID4 Editor. Therefore, one measure is automatically added as a pre-measure. After importing the file, delete the added measure if you do not need it.
I changed a phoneme while entering lyrics. After that, even when I enter additional lyrics, the phonemes remain unchanged.
Are the phonemes protected? If, in the "Note Property" window, the "PROTECT" check box at the top-right corner is selected, clear the check box.
