VOCALOID4 Editor for Cubase
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.
Shortcut keys do not work.
(1) Have you used the Cubase function for editing shortcut keys (Go to "File" menu, and then "Key Commands")? If shortcut keys are customized in Cubase, the shortcut keys in VOCALOID4 Editor might not operate correctly. (2) Are you using a virtual keyboard? The shortcut keys do not take effect with a virtual keyboard.
The notes I entered turned red.
The notes might either be corrupted or set to not be voiced. Use the "Refresh VOCALOID Part" function to restore the notes.
The "Apply to current part" button is disabled in "Singing Style".
Are there any red notes in the part? Use the "Refresh VOCALOID Part" function to restore or delete the notes.
Performance is gradually slowing down.
Are VOCALOID parts being played on multiple tracks? Excess load is being placed on your computer's memory. Either freeze the "VOCALOID4 Inst", or turn off VOCALOID4 Insts on tracks that are not being used. * It can be helpful to display "VOCALOID4 Synthesis Load" while you work, to view the load placed on your computer. If the computer continues to be subject to excess load, the VOCALOID4 Inst will be automatically unmounted to maintain optimum performance.
