Hello! I live in Texas and I'm new to vocaloid but have had years of experience with complex 3d programs and software writing, so I believe I can learn this and refuse to give up. I'm an older artist who is an anime-otaku, which would be kind of creepy for a man my age if I didn't qualify it by saying I was married for 22 years and now share my passion for things Japanese with my grandkid. My immediate problem is getting the sounds right, to pronounce certain words. Like "sis-ter". Many of the syllables I try to use don't sound anything like the sounds it generates! I bought the download of Oliver which comes with the lite editor, and am waiting for Yuzaki Yukari on dvd with the lite editor which is coming from Japan.I live in Texas. Please help me understand how to put sounds in the lyrics that come out better in English. The Scarborough fair demo blew me away! I can see the potential. I'm making a video using Poser generated figures and live actors. Thanks.

What are you trying to get sister to sound like? There's plenty of combinations to try.
Checking the English Phonetics may help.

Thanks, I didn't mean sounding like sister, I actually meant pronouncing the word "sister" Relevantly I just discovered the user dictionary for words, which is helping a lot because I can pre-set how the syllables sound. I also tried some changes to the active voice, which helps. What I'm doing is writing sounds, and even dialog, for 3d characters. I buy the music outright from Pond 5, and assemble it in my film editor after I've generated video with poser, but all V3 has to do is sing the words with a good kid's voice. Its kind of a rock opera. The boy is the childhood memory of the main live actor. He's in a scene with a nun who traumatized him by discipline, he sings things like "You're scaring me sister" and "What can I have done?". The lyrics may be so unclear audibly that I'll have to include subtitles so people can understand him, but I'm still enthused about the concept.
