[Notes] Vocaloid Tonio Apprecation Post

Let’s be honest. As most people say, Tonio is very limited when it comes to what he SHOULD sing. (But of course that doesn’t stop people from trying other things.)

I’ll be listing down a bunch of his issues. While not all can be worked around, at least it should save some frustration.

[screenshots, videos, and samples will be added in the next update]

Phoneme Glitches

How to kill Tonio: The [@] Glitch

How to reproduce it?

Simply write a single “@” note starting from D3. According to Zero-G (developer), Tonio has bad [@] phoneme data from D3 onwards.

Effect(s):

The engine will crash and you’ll lose unsaved data.

Solution(s):

Replace [@] with [V] (or other similar-sounding phonemes). Unfortunately that’s the only way.

Other notes:

Zero-G is fully aware of this and advises users to just use [V]. The only solution is to update/fix Tonio but that’s not viable at the moment. Importing to Tonio to V3 does NOT fix this.

Tonio can’t say /gay/ glitch [gh eI]

How to reproduce it?

Type “gay” in the note and the engine will automatically convert it to [gh eI].

Effect(s):

Tonio will omit the actual [I] sound in the [eI] transition. He will say gay as “gh ee” instead.

Solution(s):

Change the phoneme combination.

  • [gh e j]
  • [g eI]
  • [gh e] [I] or [gh e] [i:]. Add a very short [I] or [i:] note after [gh e]

Other notes:

It seems to be an isolated case for the gh + eI combination. I have tried other consonants and they are okay. (I have yet to test everything however)

Pa becomes Poo-wah glitch [p Q]

How to reproduce it?

Use [p Q] starting from C#3.

Effect(s):

Instead of saying “pah”, he will say it as “poo-wah”

Solution(s):

Change the phoneme combination to [ph Q] or do not use the [p Q] combination starting from C#3.
