Utau Tutorial                                                                                                   7/14/2009


Welcome to Krissy's Utau tutorial! By the time it get finished, the English version might be out. So read while you can!


1) The first thing you do is download Utau, you can do this here utau2008.xrea.jp/index.html.
Click the very first link under 'Download' and install it. Don't worry, there are no spyware or viruses.

2) Once you loaded it and checked out the program, you'll see that it is not in english but there are  letters. (S)Save (F)File (E)Edit? (V)View?(P) (P) (T)Tools? (H)Help. You'll have to play around to find what each button does.

3)If you've read about Utau, you know that you can make your own Utauloid.
A)Find a higrana/romaji alphabet website.The command prompt only reads roman letters. www.tokyowithkids.com/fyi/hira…
B)open up the utau file. Go to 'Computer'; 'local disk C'; 'Program Files'; 'Utau';'Voice'. Create a name for your Utauloid. That is the title of the file.
C)Record yourself saying each higrana character. Save each file as a .wav and type the romaji that corresponds to the sound.Make sure you saved the files in your Utauloid's folder.

4) Open Utau again. Click the second 'T' and then click 'O'. You will get a pop-up. Click the second tab. You'll see a big empty box and two empty bars, one under the other. Click the button next to the bottom bar. Find your file with your recorded voices and click any one of them. Now press the very first button on next to the bar above the bottom one to add it to the box.

5)If you press 'P' and then press 'R' from it's drop down menu, another little pop-up comes up. Find and press the little black arrow and your Utauloid's name should be there.Press 'OK' to close. If the name is not there, repeat steps 3 and 4.

6) Type in a letter like 'a' in the lyrics box. Use the pencil tool to ''write it in".

7)Find the highest and lowest limits of your Utauloid.

8) Go online and look for .ust's. UST's are song file that Utau uses for you to put in words. Go here utaulibrary.blogspot.com/ to download some .ust's.


Extra Tips:

While you are recording,you have to cut out the parts of silence. Ex: If you pause and then say the voice sample and put it into UTAU, the program will read the first few seconds of that silence that was not cut out.


THANK YOU FOR READING!

Great tutorial! Everything works fine until Step 5. I don't quite understand what it's saying. I tried to skip the step, but when I try to make my utauloid say something, it says "Failed to generate a wav file". What do I do???

I seem to get that "Bad file name or number" message as well with no way of fixing it as well.

Erm, I'm working on my UTAU, Kanako Bara, and the thing is, when i type in the noise and write it in, but when i hit play(I'm POSITIVE- i use ctrl+a), she doesn't make a noise!
What's wrong?

Great tutorial! I just recently started using UTAU, and I've finally imported the voice bank and everything, but I always have a problem with (T)--->(O) then picking the Tool Path. When they're set to the default positions, wavtool.exe and resampler.exe, I always receive a message saying that there's an "Illegal Tool Path". Any ideas?

I have the voice bank and everything loaded but when I hit play I get several pop-ups that immediately close and then . . . silence. Is there something you have to do after penciling in the lyrics?

Ahhh... How would you make a Hiragana voice bank from one that's Romaji?
Also, how do you input a VSQ file into utau? The "File -> Import" button doesn't seem to work for me :c

How do you delete a lyric you entered but decided you don't want?
