UTAU vs VOCALOID opinionsits the free version of vocaloid.It's similar enough as to be easy-ish to get into when you have experience with vocal synths and you can make your own voicebanks! You do need a different program (e.g. FL Studio) to create decent USTsNo way to use English voices or even a keyboard set to English.It has a truly absurd amount of voices available for use if you do even the slightest amount of googling, and can sound very good if used well. Additionally, while it may be intimidating at first, it isn't that hard to learn how to use it well.it is not playing the sounds and the letters are corrupted when I go to certain windowsjust perfect alternative with similar using meansYou have to change your keyboard settings to Japanese if you want to use UTAU. Without it, the Vocaloid won't sing.

Cadencii vs VOCALOID opinionsguys it never said it can synthesizeCadencii can synthesize. Its just hard to get it to.Not written in the description that it can synthetise vocal, just it's compatible with Vocaloid voice banks.Doesn't actually synthesize, it's just an importer.
