If you want your Vocaloid song/cover to sound realistic, for the love of pete, don't
It's a failed experiment that is overshadowed by VocaListener, and even that can't be
downloaded yet to my knowledge.
I myself have MikuMikuVoice, even though the download is hard to come by because the
original download vanished around VocaListener's announcement. It's a neat idea, but
it doesn't work very well.
The only reason I bring it up is because I found out that MMD cup 8 rolled around
since I got banned from YouTube and I'm browsing all the entries.
To start with, I found this entry.
Listen to it closely. It sounds a bit shaky and, for the lack of a better word,
robotic. That's the typical result of using MMV. The NND user who made the cover went
over the original singer with MMV and this is what came out of it.
In contrast, check out another Vocaloid cover used as an entry, this one of Tori no
Uta by the new Vocaloid3 IA:
If I didn't tell you that she was a Vocaloid, could you have guessed? As far as I can
tell, not even VocaListener was used on this cover, and she sounds incredibly
realistic for a Vocaloid. Not to mention a billion times more appealing to listen to
then the robotic/shaky tone of the other video.
Moral of the day: Don't try to take shortcuts in your work. Patience and practice
will reward you much, MUCH more.
Just my two cents.
