ARIANNA LEONE

(Japanese:アリアンナ・レオネ)

NAME INTERPRETATION:
Arianna is a wordplay on the author's real name and the word "aria"
Leone means "lion" in Italian and has been chosen due to her hair and as a wordplay on the typical -ne endings of UTAU names

Disclaimer: As both first and last name are quite common in Italy, it must be remarked that there's no connection to any person who shares this name or a similar one and any case of homonymy is completely coincidental.

TYPE: AGA-loid - (AGA comes from the voicer's surname)
MODEL: AGA-α (alpha, sometimes appears on the display on her belt)
GENDER Female VOICE RANGE C4-B5 (Might need a bit of work under C4, as her A's sometimes distort) RELATED CHARACTERS

Rosario Leone (Genderbend/younger brother)

Josephine Cobra (Fellow AGA-loid, belligerant friendship)

PERSONALITY: [Personality is optional and can be disregarded for her usage]

Arianna is mostly a laid back person, with her head often in the clouds. Usually, she is friendly and helpful, likes funny things and laughs pretty easily at jokes. She is actually a tsundere, though, but her “tsun-tsun” side is hard to trigger due to her being lazy. Most times, she'll express her disappointment with sighs and looks of disapproval, but she can have scary outbursts if you’re persistent enough to cross her patience limits. She also tends to flip and go berserk when people put too much pressure on her. Despite that, she's unable to hold grudges, and after her brief outbursts, she'll swing back to normal like nothing happened. She’s geeky and likes conspiracy theories and UFOs. Since she has been recorded on an Arch Linux system, she regards Linux as her true home.

Supplemental Information

Hair color: orange
Utauariannaleonedesign

Eye color: blue
Earphones: black with pink lights
Dress/Outfit: her color scheme is lightblue and white, with square-wave patterns. Has a pink waveform display and some controls on her belt.
Nationality/Race: Italian
Quote: “I should really be mad, but it’s tiring, so I forgive you.”

Genderbending

The genderbent version of Arianna is named Rosario (ローザリオ) and is obtained through g+10 or g+15 flag in the C3 octave. For some reason UTAU hates some of the samples when they're used in the lower range, and sometimes even Rosario is affected, regardless of the genderfactor, and might require some tweaking (such as equalizing). M4 engine is the one that works better in that regard. Fresamp11 can also help him sounding better using of a F0 or negative flag and increasing high frequencies through equalizing during mixing. This last approach has the best results, usually.

Development

Additional sounds for Italian support have been released in beta. The additional sounds will be romaji encoded. You can hear demos on http://goo.gl/fOmmT. This voicebank probably won't go past beta stage.

Japanese VCVs have been recorded and are currently being oto'ed. They have Japanese filenames and japanese aliases. You can hear a demo here goo.gl/ybFKb.

Soft Append has been canceled and completely replaced by the VCV (which has softer quality than the CV bank).

More demos can be found on the author's Soundcloud page.

A V2.0 bank has been recorded and is currently being tested and configured. The new bank has more uniform recordings, albeit a bit less bright. It is romaji-encoded and will support officially Italian, Latin and Japanese languages, although Japanese will be heavily Italian accented (probably more than V1.2 already is, as the strength of trilled r's has been increased a little in order to improve comprehensibility of Italian). The new bank will be bi-pitch, with one main bank in E4 (Same tone as V1.x) and a lower pitch bank in C4 to make up for the distortion that always affects Arianna in the lower range. The bank will also include VC samples, and on the other hand it will contain less CCV than V1.2beta and no CCCVs at all. This will grant more flexibility and smoother singing of both Latin and Italian.

SPECIAL NOTES: This voicebank is a prototype for Italian support and adds additional phonemes to the V1.0 bank. There is also a phoneme and frq fixes and improvements in the oto compared to the V1.0.

In regards of Italian support, the current prototype lacks some useful phonemes and uses a pretty inefficient approach by using CCCVs instead of VCs, but it's enough to produce a pretty clear Italian.

This beta might never be released as stable, and will be replaced by 2.0 version.

Additional Notes

If you ever upload something with her on YouTube, PLEASE use the tag "UTAUArianna". Arianna and Leone are too common names and words and will bring up a lot of unrelated videos so don't use them in the tags. Thanks.
