>15.-what? Basically some dev decided to make a program to mimic popular voices, just feed it enough of one voice and it'll slowly learn how to mimic it. Its mostly being used by a bunch of horsefuckers after their show ended explaining why there's so many mlp voices but its been getting popular as the dev adds more non-horse shit. It recently came back online after the dev did some work making the more popular voices sound even better, while adding around 100 more voices. At certain points ai.15 is a flatout deadringer and its only going to get better from here. At this rate the typical "voice actor" may go the way of the dinosaur.

>Special shoutouts go to cuckchannel's /mlp/ and its anons who have collectively spent hundreds of hours collecting, cleaning, and organizing clips of dialogue taken from the show My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Thanks to everyone else who helped curate datasets for their favorite characters. Further thanks to Cookie for entertaining a couple illuminating discussions that contributed to the latest iteration of the model, and for proposing the idea of using DeepMoji embeddings to aid in context-based emotive generations; thanks to persona nerd for suggesting using a GAN vocoder as an alternative, leading to a significant improvement in audio quality. Finally, thanks to everyone with whom I've corresponded with regarding related issues within the past two months. (And as always, thanks to /v/ for the excellent content.) I don't remember any anon thanking an imageboard while working with machine learning tech, let alone cuckchan; it's usually disowned. Also, I've yet to see anything similar that relies on seiyuu clips in the animu side. Perhaps it's the way speech synthesis works for the Japs?
>>8740 Kinda, they have the vocaloid stuff which is pretty advanced but English Miku sounds like shit. And they have no fair-use laws so copyright will bite them in the ass.

if you can't get the inflection right, try adding a second sentence with the pipe symbol (it's that vertical line above backslash) for altered deepmoji analysis (I cannot believe I'm unironically using the word deepmoji). to wit, I got the inflection on webm related by adding "|Fuck You!" to the original line >>8738 every time I work with Carl the voice always sounds like they missed the last 1/8 second of each word. He talks way too fast. Scout too

>>8744 various memetic expressions >>8746 the way the analyzer works with the second sentence is it uses it for deepmoji analysis and ignores the first sentence. just changing it to buttocks wouldn't provide the analyzer with an emotional impact if you're suggesting changing the original sentence itself, surely you've at least seen pic related
>>8759 But Carl works in any situation.
>>8760 I mean if it helps smooth out how the Sponge voice says it while keeping it funny, then it couldnt be too bad. The sharp "butt" sound really breaks up the flow.

>>8787 That and Touhou cookie along with the Homo men edits.

>>8823 Give it a shot, there's no real barrier on who's allowed in or not. Just whether the reference audio is well prepared.
Of all the work people are doing to upload voices, the focus should honestly go to characters that'll never be heard again.
>>8824 OK, I've got over a third of it done. Should provide 7+ minutes of dialog when done, and I think even more could be obtained from the parts that aren't so easily extracted and the previous game the character was in.
I couldnt figure out how to add audio tracks
>>9009 I think you need to send it directly to the developer.
>>9009 Yes. Read the contribute section: You have to transcribe all the audio and send a zip of it+audio files to the dev, with some requirements. The contact is in the about. >>8845 Finished. It's ultimately around ~10 mins in length (I know of no way to fully tally the exact length, but an average length of 2 seconds times the number of files gives me over 10 mins)
>>9009 >>9012 Are the devs FINALLY accepting new characters? Seriously it needs more if it ever wants to stay alive.
>>9013 I doubt 10 minutes is long enough to train decently the neural network, but tell me if you character gets accepted to have a reference.

>>8835 I agree with you Anon, on the bright side if you can find clean voice tracks the guy is apparently willing to do it. but you may have to venture to cuckchannel's /mlp/
>>8835 Strongly agree, no one could contest the validity because while you could copyright strike shit like pre-recorded messages on movies and cartoons, how can you justify being able to mimic someone else's voice when they can't do it anymore? All reenactors would have to be shot on sight. Anyhow, does anyone have any idea if this guys ever released the source code or have found his original papers? >>9031 Have you tried just having them play the lines with a |happy deepmoji encoding and then just using something like audacity to give it higher or lower pitch?

Couldn't you use one of those speech-to-text automatic transcribers, then just work from there onward to spell check everything? Anyhow, good job anon
>>9971 No. I type quick enough the actual transcription is negligible time. The problem is pulling up each clip, listening to it a few times to make sure it says what it says it says, and getting the file pathes typed.
>>8738 Clearly it hasn't been fed enough lines, as some of them still retain that robotic noise to it.
Not only that, but also learning tone as well.
>>9980 The FAQ mentioned it does better with female voices than male ones, particularly super deep male ones. This is an issue because the most popular voices, bar maybe Scout, are all fairly deep voices, and most there wasn't enough female voices to really do much of note with (while just remaking voice spliced Team Fortress 2 stuff is massive showcase potential) and the female voices that are there either don't have much emotion in the first place (Daria, Rise), or are heavily robotized already (GLADOS, Turret).
Doctor who isn't a cartoon, but I noticed the tenth doctor voice sounds more Scottish than he is on the show. I know the actor is Scottish but he was putting on an english accent.
>>9980 >>9981 The problem is that you need a ton of annotated voice lines and starting off of previously learnt weights may be okay if the voices are similar but not so much if they're completely different. It may also be a case of overfitting to the training data. Also they're using Deepmoji to determine intention from the context of the phrases, it may be that it's specifically tiered towards one kind of pitch and ignores all the rest. I've tried making Soldier say the exact same phrase with different intent (happy, sad, angry etc.) and it sound extremely samey, but you can feel that small hint of emotion. Either way, it's an impressive improvement over what most other NN shitposters have done.
>>9986 >it does better with female voices than male ones No wonder its flooded with pony crap.
>>10060 Not to mention they had Halfchan /mlp/ going to autistic lengths compiling voice clips for them to use.

Theaters, going forward, will most likely be a niche retro entertainment venue, like bar-arcades. (((Hollywood))), in it's current form, is on its last legs. Comics, in their current form, are dying, kept alive only as franchise producers by the studios that own them. Television? Sitting through commercials is intolerable, and who under the age of 50 wants to watch censored content? Kids watch jewtube once they're old enough to figure out how to work a smartphone. Cartoons are rapidly being replaced with anime, which is far superior in terms of art and writing. Mainstream entertainment will have to adapt or die, and given how resistant they are to change, I'm guessing that it's choosing to die.

>>12397 >'Imagine,' both the song itself and the album, is the same thing as 'Working Class Hero' and 'Mother' and 'God' on the first disc. But the first record was too real for people, so nobody bought it. It was banned on the radio. But the song 'Imagine,' which says: "Imagine that there was no more religion, no more country, no more politics" is virtually the communist manifesto, even though I am not particularly a communist and I do not belong to any movement. You see, 'Imagine' was exactly the same message, but sugar-coated. Now 'Imagine' is a big hit almost everywhere — anti-religious, anti-nationalistic, anti-conventional, anti-capitalistic song, but because it is sugar-coated it is accepted.

He hasn't given any ETA on when the main site will be available again, and he's a bit secretive on his test sites, so your best chance is to monitor the /mlp/ threads for news about it or use a similar Text to speech project (like https://uberduck.ai/ ).
