How To Make a Vocaloid Breathe Using VOCALOID

Someone on YouTube (they will remain anonymous here) wanted to know how to make a Vocaloid breathe using the program, so I wanted to be helpful.

It's actually really easy, once you know how to do it.

When you draw a note, right-click on it and select "note property". Under where it says "phonetic", write br1, br2, etc. (goes from br1-br5 for different types of breaths). You do not have to change the lyric, and it can just be left as "a".

For some Vocaloids, you have to put all the breaths in a separate track.

If you can't hear the breath no matter how much you turn up your volume, you probably need to make the note for the breath longer or shorter, depending on which type of breath it is (br1-br5). You can adjust how loud the breath is with dynamics.

I only own VOCALOID2. I had to uninstall VOCALOID1, because it created problems for me.

Different types of breaths for Miku:

br1 = High-pitched breath.
br2 = High-pitched exhale.
br3 = Same as br1, only more hollow sounding.
br4 = Exaggerated, hollow sounding breath.
br5 = Extremely exaggerated, low-pitched breath.

Different types of breaths for Len:

br1 = Subtle, quiet breath.
br2 = Uneasy breath.
br3 = Extremely exaggerated breath.
br4 = Breath through the nose.
br5 = Hollow breath.

Different types of breaths for Rin:

Same as Miku:

br1 = High-pitched breath.
br2 = High-pitched exhale.
br3 = Same as br1, only more hollow sounding.
br4 = Exaggerated, hollow sounding breath.
br5 = Extremely exaggerated, low-pitched breath.

Different types of breaths for Luka (EDIT: Luka is much quieter in this program than the others, so you probably need to adjust the dynamics or volume on her breaths in order to hear them):

Same as Miku and Rin:

br1 = High-pitched breath.
br2 = High-pitched exhale.
br3 = Same as br1, only more hollow sounding.
br4 = Exaggerated, hollow sounding breath.
br5 = Extremely exaggerated, low-pitched breath.

Different types of breaths for Gakupo ( excuse me if I wrote unnecessary things about these, I just really love Gakupo XD )

br1 = Relaxed breath.
br2 = Slightly strained breath.
br3 = Very uneasy, uncomfortable sounding breath.
br4 = Slightly uneasy breath.
br5 = Very sudden, sexy-sounding breath. (haha sorry)

Different types of breaths for Gumi:

Same as Miku, Rin, and Luka:

br1 = High-pitched breath.
br2 = High-pitched exhale.
br3 = Same as br1, only more hollow sounding.
br4 = Exaggerated, hollow sounding breath.
br5 = Extremely exaggerated, low-pitched breath.

Different types of breaths for Yuki:

Same as Len:

br1 = Subtle, quiet breath.
br2 = Uneasy breath.
br3 = Extremely exaggerated breath.
br4 = Breath through the nose.
br5 = Hollow breath.

Different types of breaths for Hiyama:

br1 = Subtle, quiet breath.
br2 = Uneasy breath.
br3 = Extremely exaggerated breath.
br4 = Sounds as if his mouth is almost completely closed.
br5 = Slightly more hollow than br4.

Kamui Gakupo - Aimo ~Wind~

video

Watch on YouTube.

Happy 4th of July, everyone.

I had this sitting in my computer for months, and I finally decided to upload it today. This is, what I would like to call, the "wind mix" of Aimo ~Tori No Hito~, originally sung by Megumi Nakajima as Ranka Lee, from Macross Frontier.

Gakupo is singing the main part with the lyrics, and everyone else is in the background as a chorus, simply singing "ah".

I know, I know. There are some ridiculously high notes in here... for some, that is. I am just used to higher notes, I guess.

Song: Aimo ~Wind~
Voice Used: Kamui Gakupo
Other Voices Used:
Hiyama Kiyoteru (Taking place of Shion Kaito)
Kaai Yuki (Taking place of Sakine Meiko)
Hatsune Miku
Kagamine Rin
Kagamine Len
Megurine Luka
Megpoid Gumi

We are in a warm ocean.

The dancing larks in the sky are waves.

You are a young and gentle child.

in the world was one.

Come on and step into this warm universe.

Please understand that I had no idea that there was already a Vocaloid song called "Angel Voice" by Miku... so please don't think I stole the title!
