https://youtu.be/RNiYmhcTZHg*This* is definitely the fastest I've ever finished a cover.
But yeah, SynthV came out yesterday and I was pretty excited to try it out and I'm glad to say overall i'm pretty happy with it. Most of my complaints come from the workflow/GUI or the VB itself, but the engine and the parameters are all great.
-Simultaneous phoneme and lyric input - no annoying switching between modes
-Generally pretty natural synthesis
-Instantaneous pitch readout when adjusting pitch parameter/notes
-Thorough adjustment of built-in portamento
-The tension parameter is just... ugh (in a good way)
-Same goes for the Voicing parameter
-The ability to copy/move notes and have the parameter edits move with them
The not so good:
-Lyric input makes me wanna pull my hair out.
-Only one track per project
-The output seems really *really* compressed. (Maybe I'm the only one who minds this)
-Arpabet - need i say more?
-Inability to set the bottom number of the time signature - hope no one wants to do anything in, god forbid, 5/8 time.
But yeah, I think if some of these workflow/GUI things could be fixed, using SynthV would be a breeze.
And as always, let me know what you guys think of the cover! (The rap part is utterly incomprehensible so I just did my own thing)
