VOCALOID2 Notes – Simulating Breathing

You can add breathing to simulate breathing in songs on VOCALOID2

To do this, it is suggested that you create a new track in your current project in VOCALOID2. Just turn the ‘Overlay’ option on to see the other track when working on the breathing track.

Simply create any new note where you want the breathing to occur. Only duration matters here, not how high or low the note is. Then change the note phonetic to br1/br2/br3/br4/br5 by going into ‘Note Properties’.

br1 to br5 represent a range of different breathing styles. br1 sounds like breathing through the nose, while br5 sounds like breathing through the mouth. You can even mix up the breathing by having one after another.

Increase DYN setting to make the breathing louder or quieter.

VOCALOID2 Notes – Parameter Adjustments


These parameters greatly affect the sound of your project.

VEL Velocity

Affects ‘su’ and ‘fu’ the most. Difficult to tell effect.

HIGH FASTER CONSONANT PRONUNCIATION (MORE DYNAMIC)
LOW SLOWER CONSONANT PRONUNCIATION (LESS DYNAMIC)

DYN Dynamic

Draw unequal ‘V’s, with steep slope in beginning and a more gradual slope after the minimum point. This often mimics a person’s real voice. Can be drawn whereever there needs to be a new note pronounced.

HIGH LOUDER
LOW QUIETER

BRI Brightness

HIGH LOUDER, MORE SUCCINCT PRONUNCIATION OF WORD
LOW SOFTER, LESS SUCCINCT PRONUNCIATION OF WORD

BRE Breath

HIGH MORE AIR BURST NOISE
LOW DEFAULT AIR BURST NOISE

CLE Clearness

LOW DEFAULT NO ADDED NOISE
HIGH ADD OISE

GEN Gender Factor

LOW Make singer sound younger
HIGH Make singer sound older

POR Portamento Timing

HIGH MERGES NOTES AND TAKES FIRST NOTE’S PITCH IN SECOND
LOW
MERGES NOTES AND TAKES SECOND NOTE’S PITCH IN FIRST

PIT Pitch

25% +/- DEFAULT PBS GIVES HALF AN OCTAVE UP/DOWN

PBS Pitch Bend Sensitivity

Multiplier for pitch setting
