vocaloid 4.2.1 for cubase won't load

Post by fiddler2007 » Fri Jan 29, 2016 9:20 pm

Anybody had this experience? Just bought Yamaha Vocaloid 4 for use with PowerFX' Ruby. First installed Ruby and activated it. Then did the same with Vocaloid 4 and run the update 4.2.1. Running Cubase 8.0.35. The same situation with Cubase 8.5 BTW. Updated and checked all my Windows 7 64bit Sp1 and C++ files, especially 2012 both x64 and x89 as it seems to be important for this Vocaloid according Yamaha. Yamaha support has not responded sofar ...

Screendumps:
Vocaloid 4 Cubase not loading.jpg
after clicking on the instrument edit icon in the inspector OK
(115.79 KiB) Not downloaded yet
Vocaloid 4 Cubase not loading 2.jpg
after pressing OK
(106.3 KiB) Not downloaded yet
PS Cubase pro 8.0.35 doesn't exit properly after this situation, you'll need task manager in windows to shut Cubase down.

regards, F

Hurray, it has been fixed, got a mail from yamaha vocaloid support:

1) Download and install "windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe" if you have not applied Service Pack 1.
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download ... px?id=5842

2) Download and install VSU4/vcredist_x86.exe (32-bit VOCALOID4 Editor for Cubase)
or VSU4/vcredist_x64.exe (64-bit VOCALOID4 Editor for Cubase).
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download ... x?id=30679

3) Apply the newest Windows Update. (KB2670838 is most required)

4) Restart the computer.

5) Run the installer of VOCALOID4 Editor for Cubase,
select [Repair] in InstallShield Wizard.

(step 5 was not needed in my case BTW)

Hi

Glad you got it sorted.

Well, you need to develop skills in using phonemics and there's other also time consuming filtering and pitching stuff involved. Some do a great job, but to achieve some thing like this https://youtu.be/iijRGHuNj7U you'll have to be an expert. PS i want to use it for harmony vocals and so far got two songs on the road where no one complained and told me "it sounds like a computer" so far .. F
