The Creator of the Second Dimension - Chapter 128
Chapter 128 .Electronic Diva
Chu Future finished the recording work in the recording studio and walked out of the transparent room.
The heating in the room was a bit high, and coupled with the constant noise, his blush was flushing, and he looked like a ripe apple.
“it is finally over.”
The staff in charge of the recording sighed, his name is Hu Weijie, and he was once a senior engineer of Yamaha Electronics. After the collapse of Yamaha Electronics, he brought this production line to the Hatsune Video Network.
“Mr. Hu, how long will the follow-up deployment take?”
Xu Rui asked, he took a glass of warm water to Chu Future, and watched him hold it in his palm and drank it slowly.
“I think it will be online almost in the next year, after all, Yamaha Electronics has already achieved a high degree of completion before.”
Hu Weijie replied. He glanced at the screen. There were countless complicated waveforms inside. Outsiders might be confused when they saw it.
“Director Xu, I still don’t understand, how does this thing work?”
Chu Weiwei drank two sips of water, and then came over to ask.
“Simply put, the recording you provided before is the fuel for this sound synthesis engine, which is used to vocalize it.”
Xu Rui pointed to the electronic piano on the side, and then spoke.
“For example, the electronic keyboard, the official name of the electronic keyboard is actually called the electronic music synthesizer, but it is called the electronic keyboard because it looks like a piano. The first electronic keyboard recorded the sounds of real musical instruments, just like a repeater. Press the corresponding keys. Just repeat the corresponding sound, and by recording different musical instruments, the electronic piano can also become an electronic drum, electronic guitar, etc.”
“Sound synthesis engine is to change the recorded instrument into your voice, and compose speech by pressing specific keys, just like”
Hu Weijie hit a few keys on another screen, and then pressed play.
“Hello everyone, I am Chu Future.”
The computer immediately uttered a slightly weird but fairly clear speech. Although the tone was a bit strange, it could be heard that it was 80% similar to Chu Future’s voice.
Chu Weiwei’s eyes widened.
Hu Weijie smiled, knocked on the keyboard for a while, and played a melody. In the melody, Chu Future’s voice was singing.
Although the feeling of singing still has some mechanical texture, it is very close to the human voice. If you add mixing and special effects, it can almost be fake.
“But what can this be used for?”
Chu Weiwei tilted his head and blinked his eyes and asked, after all, he is only a fifteen-year-old child, he can’t think of that far.
“This sound synthesis engine has two functions. First, it is used to stimulate creation. We all know that it is very difficult to create a complete song, and the singer is a big problem. Many creators cannot sing well. Even if you write a good song, you can only wait for others to discover it. This sound synthesis engine allows creators to create their own songs freely.”
Xu Rui said that there are very few all-round singers who can sing as well as composing lyrics, such as Su Liyu and Chu Weiwei, who are both good singers.
However, amateur composers are easily buried if they can’t find a suitable singer to perform due to their own singing skills.
“The second role is a virtual idol.”
Chu Future didn’t understand it again. He knew the meaning of this word separately, but when combined, it seemed to have become another thing.
“Yes, this is what Yamaha Electronics wanted to do before.”
Hu Weijie said in a sigh.
“We give the voice synthesis engine an image. The music produced by the voice synthesis engine is her work. Such singers will never change their image regardless of the passage of time. They have an eternal voice and an ageless appearance. Ten years, twenty years, and even fifty years later, they will be able to sing a clear voice.”
When he said this, Hu Weijie’s eyes were a little blurred. He believed in such a picture once before, but with the collapse of Yamaha Electronics, all his dreams have passed away.
Originally came to Xu Rui’s side, Hu Weijie wanted to send the sound synthesis software he made for the last time, but he did not expect Xu Rui to find a very suitable sound source. Hu Weijie once did it. My dream may really come true.
“Wow, that sounds amazing.”
Chu Future seems to know what Xu Rui said before, what is the way to make himself and his dead sister perform on the same stage.
“Regarding creators, I plan to distribute some beta versions to creators under our website after the sound synthesis engine is debugged, so that they can create and promote.”
Xu Rui explained that the price of the standard version of the sound synthesis engine is about 1,500, and the premium version is 2,500. It includes the manager, main program, and sound source library, which is slightly more expensive for the average creator.
Xu Rui also has his own reasons for this price.
First of all, the investment in the sound synthesis engine itself is relatively high, and the added value of the software determines that the price cannot reach hundreds of ordinary people. Secondly, the authors who can really use this software to create are bound to be a small number of animation enthusiasts. , And the thousands of yuan-priced sound synthesis engine is not expensive for people who understand music. After all, an electronic piano costs tens of thousands of dollars. This price is normal for musical instruments, and it is even a little cheaper.
Of course, if the sales situation is good, Xu Rui will find other sound sources for inclusion, and launch an expanded sound source package. The modification and improvement of Chu’s future voice will also be released as a paid update. After all, Xu Rui is not a philanthropist, so he should make money. Certainly still have to earn.
“Regarding virtual idols, I asked Qian Qian to write a draft first After our meeting and discussion, the basic image has been roughly determined.”
Xu Rui motioned to Hu Weijie to open a folder, which contained a lot of design drafts. He found the most complete one, and opened it, and a girl with a long double ponytail appeared on the screen.
She is wearing a gray suit shirt with a waist, black flared sleeves are separated from her clothes, and her lower body is a black pleated skirt, black stockings, and small leather shoes.
The girl’s hair color is light green, and the tie of the suit shirt is the same color. In addition to black, white and gray, her body is dotted with many light green accessories, which is very eye-catching.
She looks cheerful and innocent, exuding the vitality of a girl. The design of the costume has a touch of electronic machinery, which is quite in line with the concept of virtual idols and electronic singers.
Chu Future saw this picture and called out immediately.
“Ahem, in fact, Sister Qian Qian referred to your image when designing this character, and she probably created it with the mentality of ‘what would happen if I were a girl in the future’.”
Xu Rui explained that Chu Future blushed immediately.
“I, I am not.”
He retracted the lower half of his face into a turtleneck sweater like a little rabbit.
“Well, no kidding, in a sense, this is the incarnation of you and your sister.”
Xu Rui patted Chu Future on the shoulder and said.
“This, uh, virtual idol, what is your name?”
Chu Weiwei glanced at the cute girl with two ponytails, and then asked.
“I have already figured it out. Since this image was born from the Hatsune Video Network and is your voice in the future, it is called, um”
Xu Rui paused, then continued.
