Eleanor Forte is an American English voicebank[3]for the Synthesizer V software. She was initially released on August 18, 2018.

ConceptEdit

PersonalityEdit

Despite being a virtual singer, Eleanor has an interest in antiques. She is described to be honest, endeavoring, and to have an unwavering sense of morality.

EtymologyEdit

Her first name, "Eleanor", means light, and was the name of lot of royalties from the midievel period. Her last name, "Forte", means strength, and references the musical dynamic, f (forte), which is used to represent a degree of loudness in music.

ApperanceEdit

The sealing wax and tied ribbon on the design are inspired by hand-written letters. The thread around her pinky is inpisred by the red thread of fate, that indicates that if two people are connected by a red thread they are destined to meet each other. Her dress is inspired by dip-pens.

In an interview with Vocaloid News.net, because Eleanor's voice used to be more mature and have a larger head-to-body ratio, Kanru said that he was afraid that her design wouldn't fit her voice. However Kanru modified the voice to fit the design more in early August and was relieved that, after the modification to her voice, the design and voice matched.

Basic details
A preview of Eleanor is provided on the Synthesizer V website:
Gotta-be-you-mix
Software issues as noted:
  1. Despite being descripted as being "American English"[4], Eleanor shows hints of a British accent. Such as pronouncing the intrusive r[5], which is a characteristic of GB English, and pronouncing "t" like "ch", which is a common way to pronounce "t" in British.
  2. It can sometimes feel like she is speaking the lyrics instead of singing. That can fixed by lowering her tension a bit.
  3. On December 28th, 2018, a thread was made by Kanru on the Official Synthesizer V Forum for user to report pronounciation problems. Eleanor Forte, Yamine Renri, Genbu, AiKO, and Chiyu got mentioned.
