I just got an email saying that this is the time to suggest features for the next versions of the products, so here are two features for Virtual Singer that I would like:
1) Default Pronunciation File:
A feature to let you specify a file with a list of words and their phonetic pronunciation. Then if a lyric word did not have an explicit pronunciation in square brackets, Virtual Singer would see if the word was in the Default Pronunciation File.
The Default Pronunciation File would let you specify a phonetic once, instead of having to specify it for each occurrence of the word.
E.g. for me, 90% of the time the word "live" should rhyme with "give", not with "five", so I could specify that once.
2) Default settings for options like Virtual Singer Language:
Currently I have to remember to set the Virtual Singer Language to "US English" instead of the default "UK English". It would be nice to be able to specify a different default for such options.
In general, Virtual Singer is a fine product. I use it a lot to generate demo versions of vocal works, and those demos are a lot better that the usual "Choir Ahhs".
