    Pitch Editing
    • PicEdit - Select a length of notes and pitch bend over all of them at once using a range of tools. Includes line tools, S bends, Freehand and [+], which adds new control points where you click and allows you to move existing ones with ease.
    • うたりす/Utalis - Similar in nature to Vocalistener, Utalis takes the dynamics from a WAV recorded by a real singer and transfers it to your working UST. Japanese only, tutorials in English can be found.



    Another way to oto.
