I have released my own "CV" English reclist known as CV+VC! It is 81 recordings & 496 oto lines & is hopefully easy to record, configure, & use! It was made in the style of CVVC & the efficiency of Arpasing based on CZ's VCCV EN reclist! In it is the reclist (simple naming & an alt VCCV style naming), a readme, a pronunciation guide, & a base oto file. I hope you enjoy!

Quick FAQs:

- the dd is basically a JP r, not an extra set of d sounds.
- the k's in the endings set is to keep the endings from merging with each other which make it more difficult to configure.
- the n in front keep consonants consistent
- the vowel sets are not meant to be in a string like VCV as the beginnings & endings of each will be configured.
- the CC sounds are just there to configure the beginning & do not need to be held out, including the 1s with yu even though the base oto allows to have the the whole syllable configured if desired.
- the CC sounds also have x because it doesn't matter as much what vowel you use so x (schwa; unstressed vowel) has been placed.
- x is an unstressed ah/uh sound
- mm is just holding out the m sound for humming, etc.
- O is just a stressed o sound for stronger endings, like ou.
- the reclist is stringed but doesn't have to be recorded as such.
- you may modify & add sounds however you see fit. You want all the st sounds? Go for it! This reclist was designed to be the bare minimum for beginners to start English while encouraging experimenting to usts & the reclist itself.

Sample: soundcloud.com/rosalie-del-duc… (my apologies for not being a tuner but I hope it at least sounds clean & understandable)

Sample 2: ~coming soon~

This is new so it does not have an example yet. Most of it should work in other "CV" EN ust but with a bit of tweaking to the ust of course. Since it is just a simplified version of VCCV, it should sound similar. If you need an example before you record, I will let you kno when anyone else finishes. I don't have my mic on me but if enough people ask, I should be able to quickly put together my own example. I just wanted to get this out quickly because I had some people asking for it.

I updated the page with a sample now! ^^ by the way, most of the reclist is oto'd like CV & the readme does explain how to oto a lot of it, but for visuals, I recommend watching PaintedCZ's SetParam tutorial because she teaches how to configure almost anything & it's fairly very accurate!

This is what I needed. I’ve been meaning to make an actual English voice bank. Thank you. I’ll credit you when I make her.

Yes! ;7; Awesome! I can't wait to hear her!

What Background music could I use to record a voicebank with this reclist?
SunGuardian's avatar
SunGuardianHobbyist Digital Artist
Background music? You mean like what they use for oremo to record on time? I honestly haven't looked around or made my own for that but a tempo around 70~100 is recommended. This is 5 syllables per line but most lines have a starting sound to keep consistency. My apologies if that wasn't of any help ^^'

Thanks. I'll try to figure something out! :D
