Beta Voice banks

These voicebanks are fairly new. They were recorded with a RODE NT1A mic in a small soundproofed (?) closet and need more data on what needs to be updated like flags, resampler, recordings, and frq pops, etc. Contact info in readme.

CVVC
Each voicebank has about 3 pitches, Nesaki & Suprena both having the main pitch included. Nesaki & Nasuki are being heavily updated currently.

Character Details


Height: 5' 2.5" (158.75cm)

Weight: 100 lbs (~45 kg)

CHARACTER ITEM: Shaved ice (and ribbons~)
LIKES: Ribbons, bows, frills, friends, cats, colors, frozen treats
BASIC PERSONALITY: Kara has an excited, yet cute personality, making it super easy to love or hate her on the spot. She gets upset when people point out her dark brown hair is black. Kara was also made to be pure/ full of light yet childish

This is just a basic personality and you may go around it with your imagination as long a the guidelines are about this or is for acting. She's consider asexual (more like oblivious) but can be shipped lightly with anyone and may sing any song you'd like her to sing.

Design

Kara's design was born of the creator's creative imagination (*cough cough*) but did have help on outfit designs by friends and family.

HAIR COLOR: Dark Brown
HAIRSTYLE: Medium length front hair with very short hair in back. Her front hair is straight and layered on her right side and fluffy and wavy on her left.
EYE COLOR: Purple
Accessories: Turquoise bow on left side of front hair. Two rainbow colored hair clips are in her front hair on right side.
HEADSET: small black kitty-shaped ear bud with a turquoise mic attached
OUTFIT: Turquoise long-sleeved shirt with a darkish red bow as collar trim. Bow is the front and back, and front bow is tied with golden yellow ribbon to look similar to a cat's bell while the rest of the ribbon trails her back like a scarf. Over shirt has wholes in the shoulder area with lilac/light purple stripe in front leading to around to meet the lilac/light purple side stripe at the top on the back. Under shirt is a tight long sleeved royal blue shirt that as mesh in various places during summer and hole in the middle of the chest. Skirt is double layered with the top layer royal blue and the bottom turquoise. Has long lilac/light purple thigh-high socks with knee-high royal blue shoes. Shoes are laced with turquoise ribbon topped with a bow and have a slight heel to make her seem 5 ft 4 in.
SPECIAL FEATURES: Has 3 vertical black stripes on her cheek to symbolize blushing, cuteness, youth. Her medium length twin tails are also just extensions.

Name Interpretation

心音 (Kokoro/ne; Heart Sound)
カラ (Kara; from) - Kara is also a derivative of karafuru, meaning colorful
Kara can also mean pure in Greek, English, & Scandinavian
Cara (pronounced the same) is Dear or Beloved in Italian

Altogether, it means "From the Sound of the Heart" and can mean "pure heart sound" & "beloved heart sound"

Trivia

- Kara was supposed to be release in 2013 but couldn't due to various reasons, like confusion.
- As a cosplayer, she loves wearing outfits and costumes. Even her twin tails are just extensions!
- Her original planning was to be a Miku look alike, then quickly scrapped due to designing differences and kind of mainstream (like pitchloids & such). She was also supposed to be a cat but was scrapped for similar reasons.
- Base personality is her creator's personality as a child.
- Kara's original character item was going to be a stuffed Pikachu, that she would always carry around. It was also going to mimic Kara's expressions.
- Kara's beta name was Voca due to unable to come up with a name for her while initially recording her voice.
- Kara's last name technically isn't Kokone, but she chose it for the meaning (She's kinda weeb-ish, shhh), so Kara Kokone is more like a stage name.
