Welcome to the Pony Voice Preservation Project!youtu.be/730zGRwbQuEThe Pony Preservation Project is a collaborative effort by /mlp/ to build and curate pony datasets for as many applications in AI as possible.Technology has progressed such that a trained neural network can generate convincing voice clips for any person or character using clean audio recordings as a reference. As you can surely imagine, the ability to create audio in the voices of any pony you like has endless applications for pony content creation.AI is incredibly versatile, basically anything that can be boiled down to a simple dataset can be used for training to create more of it. AI-generated images, fanfics, wAIfu chatbots and even animation are possible, and are being worked on here.Any anon is free to join, and there are many active tasks that would suit any level of technical expertise. If you’re interested in helping out, take a look at the quick start guide linked below and ask in the thread for any further detail you need.EQG and G5 are not welcome.>Quick start guide:derpy.me/FDnSkIntroduction to the PPP, links to text-to-speech tools, and how (You) can help with active tasks.>The main Doc:docs.google.com/document/d/1xe1Clvdg6EFFDtIkkFwT-NPLRDPvkV4G675SUKjxVRU/editAn in-depth repository of tutorials, resources and archives.>Active tasks:Research into animation AIResearch into pony image generation>Latest developments:Singing Talknet models (>>37134971 >>37144858)Animate automation tool available (>>37147092)GDrive clone of Master File now available (>>37159549)SortAnon releases script to run TalkNet on Windows (>>37299594)TalkNet training script (>>37374942)Delta updates GPT-J model (>>37554229)GPT-J downloadable model (>>37646318)SortAnon found way to vastly improve TalkNet audio quality (>>37662611)First version of XFL to SVG converter done (>>37968656)Delta adds option to TalkNet to remove metallic noise (>>38005021)FiMmicroSoL model (>>38027533)FiMfic dataset (>>38029649)Potential all in one GUI for models from Cookie (>>38014998)Delta releases new GPT-J notebook + tutorial (>>38018428)Some AI resources (>>38034716)Another FIMfic downloader (>>38051136)New DeltaVox (>>38064386)Latest Synthbot progress report (>>38025479 >>38034471)Latest Clipper progress report (>>37887444 >>37907668 >>37909120 >>38037998)>AI REDUB COMPLETE!-Ep1youtu.be/gEXaFVw9J1oderpy.me/ELksq-Ep2youtu.be/fIhj2bFYG4oderpy.me/RHegy-Unused Clipsyoutu.be/N2730oPqLzEderpy.me/OKoqs-Rewatch Premierederpy.me/EflMJ>The PoneAI drive, an archive for AI pony voice content:derpy.me/LzRFX>The /mlp/con live panel shows:derpy.me/YIFNt>Clipper’s Master Files, the central location for MLP voice data:mega.nz/folder/jkwimSTa#_xk0VnR30C8Ljsy4RCGSigmega.nz/folder/gVYUEZrI#6dQHH3P2cFYWm3UkQveHxQmirror: derpy.me/c71GJ>Cool, where is the discord/forum/whatever unifying place for this project?You're looking at it.Last Thread:>>38014772

First for give my wife her model already
>>38066351Does not belong here. This thread is for FiM.
>>38066365yeah I remember the episode where wheatly and the tf2 guys came to ponyville, great time.fucking dumbass.
>>38066378This thread is for the preservation of FiM. EQG is opposite to that.
>>38066378We're not related to 15.ai retard. Lurk more.
>>38066365>>38066386How does it make you feel knowing that EQG vocals make up every single FiM TTS dataset? Do you absolutely seethe every single night? Does your tear-stained pillow know your midnight sobs? Do you attempt to cope by rage-typing things like "Well the vocals are one thing..." and "My model doesn't have any of that data"?
>>38066386How? I don't love EqG myself, but you guys seem to react to it like a vampire to a crucifix. Why can't you let people enjoy what they like without screeching about it?
>>38066395Yep, that's why the op image includes 15.ai-exclusive voices, to prove we're completely unrelated.
>>38066402>How?He won't give an answer. Ignore him, that's just DocAnon, he's not relevant to the project anyways beyond posting the OP.>>38066411Again, lurk more.
>>38066395>We're not related to 15.ai retardlol, are you retarded
>>38066402If you don't do anything about it, it'll only continue to infest and ruin more things. As time goes on it'll be ever more important to keep FiM projects and threads FiM. This thread was from the beginning about preserving FiM, that's why any of this exists at all. EQG does not belong here at all.
>>38066342>SortAnon found way to vastly improve TalkNet audio quality (>>37662611 (DEAD))>Delta adds option to TalkNet to remove metallic noise (>>38005021 (DEAD))I think the first line can be removed as the feature was released. And the second line should say SortAnon
>>38066402>you guysMost of us aren't screeching. If you can't handle one person screeching, you're going to be in for a ride once the drama actually starts.
>>38066475Most of them should be deleted. The OP doesn't get updated often enough.
>as discordniggers failed to start bigger drama in last thread they move on on the barbie posting in the new one and more outside board shitposting.You know what to do.
>>38066570You're gonna want to be careful with that report button. I was reporting them in the previous threads and got a warning.
>>38065573>Can it wait a couple more daysyeah, no problem, im heavy busy with irl stuff for next week, it just something that I was wondering about to simplify the process as much as possible to minimize messing with the output text.
>>38066342>>Delta adds option to TalkNet to remove metallic noise I uhh... don't remember doing that>>38066416Cut Mr. DocAnon some slack, he's cool.>>38066411https://u.smutty.horse/mfcsjuzwnyo.wavAlso, I should stop neglecting pony voices.
>>38066977Do you know if the screen reader uses SAPI? I would love it if Twilight read the screen instead of some random voice
>>38066977I found a crashing bug in deltavoxif you queue up a bunch of clips and before it's finished playing them you clear it. it crashes the entire program
>>38067026It should. Although TFLite experiments have failed so SAPI voices will be full Tensorflow (500MB per voice)>>38067045Thank you. Will take care of in the future.
>>38067120Of ram? That doesn't sound too big. Unless i am misunderstanding something
>>38067130I think that's GPU memory.
>>38067130Regular RAM. It doesn't, guess I am a little too obsessed with resource consumption.
>>38067120also i would love a switch that stops the clip and automatically plays the most recent clip every time a new clip is finished
I have come across some very interesting information about Cookie and Delta. I would be happy to share it with the world if Delta continues to pretend that he is still a part of the PPP.
>>38067179Don't talk to them. The thread will flood again. Look at the previous desaster in the last thread
>>38067192Who is TR
>>38067159That'll be easy. I remember implementing something similar a few months ago.
>>38063177Update:- [Done] I finished handling the broken epubs. There were about a thousand of them. I downloaded the corresponding html chapters directly and converted everything (epubs + html) to text. That conversion was the slowest part of the colab script, so skipping that should speed it up by a lot.- [In progress] I need to update my template-based output code. I factored out the part that could be generic to a lot of datasets. Now I just need to add enough flexibility to support the customizations required for fimfarchive (i.e., special handling of the "chapters.text" key to dump the full chapter text).- [ ] After that, I can create the v3 colab script.
>>38066759Holy fuck, this is mesmerising and smooth as heck. How did you achieve this level of AI mare adorableness?
>>38066638That never happened you falseflagging nigger
>>38068278It's from the FAQ page at TPDNE.https://thisponydoesnotexist.net/media/random_grid_2112.mp4
>>38068791I see. Would be nice if the main part of he TPDNE site had that morphing feature.
>page 10someone’s gotta bump
>>38068791They would've had much better results if they hadn't fed it anthro.
>>38066402Nor/mlp/eople post *no hooves* and keep on doing pony. Shills are so angry by the disregard they claim there's some oppression, and false flag.
>>38067162Delta is the one that threadshits everywhere right?
>>38070485Yes, also known as Noxfag. The NMMflag who posts "pathetic" with the NMM pic.
>>38070504Gotcha, thanx. Somefags are just shit through and through lel.
This thread needs some funny.https://u.smutty.horse/mfdcprllfwz.mp3
>>38065020Thank you Delta, I appreciate yours and the groups efforts to advance TTS. I have a group doing work on Nvidia's NeMo toolkit and examples from the PPP are already proving helpful in instruction. I'm teaching undergraduates who are also being taught open source licensing and philosophy so with luck there will be additional voice models contributed after March. I'm hopeful.
>>38071183Fuck off lmao
>>38071183Not a SINGLE person here believes you’re real. This is fucking pathetic, Delta.
>>38071183>Delta is STILL falseflagging in the PPP threadWhy are people still giving him a pass again?
>>38071238I've been on the fence this whole time but this is getting ridiculous. I don't even get what he's trying to accomplish anymore.Assuming it's him, of course. The audacity needed to write that post as Delta is unreal but then again, it wouldn't be the first time for him.
>>38071266I genuinely can't understand why he thinks pretending to be other people is a good idea. Does he really think anyone is buying this professor character who is weirdly fixated on Delta (and has no problem posting on 4chan about his "students") despite all the shit surrounding him right now? What the fuck is he trying to do?
>>38071281>15 retweet this>https://twitter.com/ycombinator/status/1480594667502649344This is related or he got hacked?
>>38071238>>38071266Delta is singlehandedly causing more and more drama in the PPP, just like he did as Noxfag. Surprise, surprise.And yet people still defend this piece of shit.
>>38071287nah I think that's his previous job
>>38071228There are two reasons I thank the developers on these boards as Anon.First, my real name doesn't queue the search robot and pulll a mob of students into a semi-private fan-centric forum.Second, the developer gets the message as gratitude, while important, is rare in un-moderated anonymous forums. I do enjoy the conspiracy theories though so perhaps I'm 15 pretending to be Clipper thanking Delta.
>>38071321Delta, your mistake is thinking that anyone outside of /mlp/ cares about DeltaVox.The truth is, literally no one cares about you. And that's why it's so obvious to everyone that you made up your own fan.
>>38071183If you care about the progress of AI PLEASE find another avenue to speak to Delta in. He's currently in hot water among the members here and your open communication with him is just restarting the fire, which is disruptive to the work we're trying to get done here.
>>38071348You're responding to Delta himself, stop falling for the bait
Delta is really bringing everyone together in this thread.
>>38071362Someone needs to post the NMM "pathetic" pic a la Noxfag.
>>38071348Please PLEASE use your brain. A real professor would have easily sent Delta a private email (which is clearly displayed on his GitHub profile, which this “professor” obviously has access to) to show his gratitude, not track him down on a specific thread on fucking 4chan. This is a blatant attempt by Delta to try and make it seem like he’s doing work in the TTS community, but because no one uses his model, he literally has to make up his own fans to try and support him. (Notice how the professor conveniently ignored all the negative posts about Noxfag?)I would say it’s pathetic, but given his history as a manipulative, gaslighting piece of shit, I’d call it disgusting.
>>38071416I really don't understand how people can still want Delta in the PPP after all this shit. Do you not realize who you're fucking dealing with? This guy is a proven liar, cheat, and manipulative bastard. Why the fuck would you still want him here?
>>38071416and how would a professor even know about clipper and 15
>>38071348Apologies for whatever "fire" you're referring to, I read these threads very infrequently and have no idea what incident you're referring to. As an -actual- emeritus professor I am very familiar with the cancel culture phenomenon and your request to refrain from publicly thanking devs on this forum is reasonable and consistent with current campus culture. I had assumed anonymous posting would bypass the nonsense however I stand corrected. I'll refrain from posting on the board and use direct channels with the devs for questions, thanks, and code/model contributions. Best of luck with your projects.
>>38071446Well, to be fair, everyone knows about 15. But knowing about Clipper is a dead giveaway if the initial premise wasn’t already absurd.
>>38071456>As an -actual- emeritus professor I am very familiar with the cancel culture phenomenon and your request to refrain from publicly thanking devs on this forum is reasonable and consistent with current campus culture. I had assumed anonymous posting would bypass the nonsense however I stand corrected.LMFAO
>>38071456Delta, please stopThis is embarrassing
>>38071456Thank you, and sorry for the trouble. things aren't usually quite THIS rowdy here.
>>38071183>>38071321>>38071456>>38071502Lol post more of these.
>>38071459>initial premise wasn’t already absurd.It's absurd all the way. The circumstances, the "professor's" posting style and inside PPP knowledge, Delta's overly theatrical response, all of it. But EVEN IF somehow ALL of this was true, anyone should be able to read the room and pick an alternative method of communication.
>>38071456Greetings, Professor. I have the perfect demonstration of the AI for your students. https://u.smutty.horse/lwjjhujypij.mp4
>>38071567don't tell me what to doplease
>>38071456>As an -actual- emeritus professorl m a oDo you even know what this means, Delta?
>>38071586Holy shit shut the fuck up. If that's Delta, all you're doing is feeding him (You)s and fuelling the fire. Do you fuckers WANT this to become another fucking drama general? Because this is how you get drama generals.>>38071575https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcsXGHl_hwg
>>38071560>>38071575Please stop feeding the troll. You’re legitimizing Delta’s role to the PPP by acting like this is real.
>>38071599>Do you fuckers WANT this to become another fucking drama general? Because this is how you get drama generals.The only reason that this is a drama general is because Delta is still in the PPP. If he left like Cookie did, none of this would have happened, and yet here he is still trying to stir up drama.Don't blame the people responding to the bait, blame the person behind the bait.
>>38071599Why the fuck are you accusing us of starting drama and not the actual person behind itAre you retarded?
>>38071608>>38071605>Don't blame the people responding to the bait, blame the person behind the bait.You can't possibly be this stupid.
>>38071619He means that shitposters like Delta will keep shitposting as long as they get the (You)s. The only way to stop them from shitting up the thread is not giving them attention. Not that anon but come on, this is 4chan 101 shit.
>>38071602How about I feed you instead? The whole thread has already been taken up with this shit, just like the last couple. Might as well have some fun.
>>38071624That's not the fucking point. We could have unanimously ousted Delta from the PPP in the first place but people were insistent on keeping him only because there are so few codefags around here.
>>38071627And how did you plan to "unanimously oust" him? Unless mods ban his IP range for trolling there's nothing to stop him from making more posts.
>>38071605>>38071608>>38071619I'm fucking speechless. The concept of "don't feed the troll" is such basic internet etiquette that I didn't think it would need to be explained.This is beyond newfaggotry.>>38071627>We could have unanimously ousted DeltaNo. The only ones that have that power are admins, and even then a shitposter of Nox tier can probably easily skirt around that shit. You want him gone? Stop giving him attention. ANY attention. That's what trolls want, starve them of it and they'll find more fertile grounds.Fucking hell, we already almost got rid of him during the Cookie drama from lack of (You)s, just ignore him like we did before and he'll fuck off.
>>38071636If everyone agreed to completely stop supporting Delta and stopped using DeltaVox, Delta would have no reason to post here anymore. And yet, people still support Delta and are for keeping him onboard for the sole reason that he is one of the few codefags around (>>38064575 >>38064599), which gives him a reason to keep making posts.
>>38071627>>38071636As long as Delta is here I think anons are going to continue seeking revenge for what he did to them. The drama will go away if he stops posting here. If not then the thread will always have a good few anons flaming in it. Just how it is.
>>38071649This this THIS.What Noxfag/Delta did is unforgivable, and a LOT of anons really fucking hate him for that. Delta should have stopped posting altogether and stopped trying to make up this cringe professor poster, but HE’S the one who’s causing all the drama around here.
>>38071649>The drama will go away if he stops posting here.Exactly. How are people not getting this? The fact that Delta is still posting here means that he's happy with the status quo of everyone shitting on him and the thread every time he makes a post.
>>38071649>>38071658WAIT. Are we still on the Delta/15 beef about delta not securing his code or something from howevermany months ago? Or is this new stuff?
>>38071778Delta is Noxfag. See >>38014800
>>38071778>Are we still on the Delta/15 beef about delta not securing his code or something from howevermany months ago?Holy newfaggotry. That wasn't Delta, it was Cookie. Here's a summary of that drama: https://desuarchive.org/mlp/thread/37446567/#q37468868Here's a summary of Delta/ZDisket being found out to be Noxfag: https://desuarchive.org/mlp/thread/38014772/#q38014800
>>38071534Those are all me. I have no other ID or posts on these boards that I can recall.>>38071809Thanks for the context, I understand how my presence on the board caused unnecessary confusion. Fascinating.>>38071560I'm quite certain that none of my current or previous students are anywhere on 4channel. As for myself, it's my job to follow technology and development into the deep recesses of the internet and today, fednet, 4chan, and wechat are as deep as it gets.It was a pleasure to visit you all, if I post again it will not be as Professor and not Anon so you can all continue your game uninterrupted.
>>38071937Jesus Christ Delta
>>38071937>Noxfag is STILL larping as a professorPoints for dedication, at least.
How about some prompts? That should get the creative juices pumping. Here's a good one:>What if the ponies smoked weed and said "fuck"?
>>38072072>what if the ponies fucked?
Based jannies.Just remember to ignore Delta’s posts from now on, please.
>>38072107He used to play on the tf2 server. He shared a lot of info about himself but I will only let you guys in on a little info: he LOVES futa, has a fap diary, is pretty autistic and he is a bit on the younger side, not underage but still pretty young. Just know every time you respond to him that's what you are dealing with.
>>38072130>has a fap diaryHoly fuck, I totally forgot about that. That was a really long time ago but yeah, he did confess to recording all of his faps over the last three years.Good memory, my man.
>>38072107Don’t you worry. Even though the posts may be jannied, I will make sure that Cookie and Delta will remain unemployable. Mark my words.
Haven't swung by since around the summer/fall when Controllable TalkNet was making progress in a few areas. Has there been any further refinement or other attempts at being able to convert existing audio samples into new voiced lines like Controllable TalkNet, or have things mostly stalled there in favor of TTS?
>>38072218TalkNet is still actively being worked on, just recently an update was released with a denoiser that attempts to remove the 'metallic' sound that sometimes generates with it. >>38005021Beyond that no notable advancements that I'm aware of.
>>38072130This is /mlp/ that is not surprising
>>38072218>>38072259Judging by my last test with the denoiser it doesn't really improve the output quality at all, it might even worsen it.What seems to actually work FAR better is messing with the pitch of the reference audios on Audacity before generating.
we really are dysfunctional levels of autism
>>38072766>weOrganized raiders, pay them no mind
Did anybody make any good talknet songs in the past couple months?I noticed that they stopped updating the google drive.
>>38072130>he is a bit on the younger side, not underage but still pretty youngEvery time. Every single time. Every single fucking time. Gen-Z genocide when?
>>38073239Can't happen soon enough.
>>38073239Unironically this. If Delta and Cookie (both proven zoomers) won’t leave the PPP on their own, this is the only viable solution.
>>38073239>Every time.You know why? Because 90% of the board is zoomers. Out of all the Anons who de-anonymized themselves (that I recall) all but two are in the 18-25 range. This is what the board is, and has been for at least a couple years now.
>>38066343Does fucking up a VPN count? Asking for a senpai.

>>38071649>for what he did to them"God moonfags are pathetic" posting? Are so many people really so upset over a run-of-the-mill shitposter whose signature image MD5 was easy to filter?
>>38073909Do you really think THAT’S what people are so pissed off at him about? Lurk more, please.
How did we get to a situation where Cookie and Delta are reviled and 15 is beloved by the PPP? Wasn’t it the other way around just over a year ago?
>>38074082I hate to be this gyy butLurk more
>>38074082SortAnon came and blew Cookie's model out of the water. 15 just simply kept the site up for much longer.From Cookie I don't know shit but Delta is being a faggot apparently.Also discordfags have been raiding a lot with any drama they can find. They could be falseflagging right now, usually it's a ghost town when they aren't around.
>>38074082Jealousy. Cookie and Delta realized that their models are shit compared to TalkNet and 15.ai, so the only way they can remain relevant is by creating artificial drama in the threads.The truth is that while Discordniggers COULD be contributing to the drama, the root cause has always been the two and their jealousy.
>>38074155This is absolutely spot-on. We all knew Cookie was a jealous faggot from the day 15 showed up (see: the melting chocolate incident during the /mlp/ panel). This whole ordeal has only revealed his true colors to everyone who hadn’t been paying attention.Same goes for Delta. No one knew what the hell he did for the PPP until the whole ubercuck drama happened, and after all the attention he got during that drama, Delta figured out that people will give him the attention he craves if he never stops shitposting.We’re at a point where the bulk of the work of the PPP is quietly being done by the most mature namefags (Clipper, SortAnon, Synthbot, BGM, 15) while the most vocal ones (Delta/Noxfag, Cookie) are the ones needlessly causing drama so more people would pay attention to them.
Is the Anon who made the Rarity/Coco and Pinkie/Flutters Pony Zone things still around?
>>38074200>melting chocolate incident during the /mlp/ panelCan someone spoonfeed me on this?
>>38074324He was irritated and blamed it on chocolate melting due to the heat of his GPUs.
>>38074341Sorry, who was irritated by what? I’m somewhat new to these threads so I’m missing a lot of context.
>>38074347I'm forgetting a bit myself. I think it was something regarding 15 and his models compared to Cookie's. It happened during /mlp/con so if you really wanted to see for yourself you could look up the recording for it, I think it was the most recent /mlp/con.
>>38074200Cookie and Delta helped a lot in the beginning of the PPPV.Also, I don't know for quality, but at least their work was open source (15 is nice and all, but everything is closed source. An amazing job indeed, but a closed garden).Lastly, speaking non stop of it won't help them to better themself if what you say is true. Leave them alone, an maybe one day they will come back changed for the better.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DOZrvx5qc2YI've been listening to a lot of Sinatra lately and decided to give Rarity another try.For some reason she really does not like saying the word "wind".
>>38074357>Cookie and Delta helped a lotNo, that was just Cookie. Delta didn’t have any involvement in the early stages of the PPP, he only started to be recognized during the Uberduck fiasco.
>>38074357Personally I think the hate for at least Cookie is a bit much. Sure he did some bad things that reasonably warrant some dislike, but I don't feel like it's as bad as people make it out to be. As for Delta, hard to say. I've got some mixed opinions. If his shitposting was as bad as people say, then sure I guess. Maybe I just haven't been affect as much by his postings in other threads.I definitely agree about 15 though. I don't really have any hate against him, but the fact that you are entirely dependent on him continuing to operate the (very expensive) service is a big problem I feel. It's not preservation if you can't hold a copy yourself and distribute it to many Anons.
Jesus Christ take it to a Discord server you blogging retards.
>>38074461Fuck off.No one wants you here.
>>38074532Fuck off. You are feeding the troll
>>38066348Twilight offers her perfectly reasonable views on earth ponies, while strongly asserting that she can totally handle her cider and uncovering LEEEEEEEERA’s dastardly plans!https://youtu.be/bH67wU_lLfwBased on this screencap from 2015:https://s2.desu-usergeneratedcontent.xyz/mlp/image/1425/31/1425315965335.pngAlso, a huge thanks to everyone who contributed to the making of this, artwork, voice lines, tech support and more - this simply wouldn’t have been as good without you.
>>38074324Cookie sounded really pissed during the PPP /mlp/con panel, especially when an average Anon's initial reaction to the panel was "PPP? That's the 15.ai voice thread, right?". It got so bad that a lot of people in chat and in thread asked him why he's seething so much and he responded that the GPUs drive his room temperature up and that his chocolate bar melted.tl;dr: Cookie has hated 15 and/or his work (he says it's the latter) for a long while. But that's fine as long as he doesn't shit the thread with it. Which, to his credit, he never did.>>38074389This I agree 95% with, with the main difference being that I'm lower on Delta. We'll never know what was the full extent of his shitposting but given his behavior in the PPP I'd rather assume the truth is closer to the first screencap he bragged about than it is to his second post.
>>38074841>I'd rather assume the truth is closer to the first screencap he bragged about than it is to his second post"When a person tells you what they are, believe them."
>>38074778That was fantastic
>>38074778I enjoyed watching your work streams for this congrats
>>38074774Ngl the amount of talent packed into one anon is unreal. GG, bgm
>>38074774>I got new guitar plugins for ChristmasWhich ones? I could really use some good ones myself.>>38074778Good stuff! Could've used some hiccups or burps to really sell the drunkenness.
>>38074774>>38074778Coordinated content drop. Awesome work you two. You're the spearhead of the Renaissance.
>>38074324>chocolate>spoonfeedThere's a food joke there somewhere.
>>38074372I would highly recommend messing around with cut original reference audio and try different pitches on it in audacity before feeding it to the talknet, usually it will give you SOME better result hat just using raw ones.>>38074774very nice dude. Now with so many songs made by so many anons here, tempo and other websites I feel like we could have create a some sort of ai pony radio (like one of those parody gta radio stations).>>38074778>9 minutes Also very nice. It was a good choice of greentext, and watching your progress through live streams nicely presented how a bit of persistence can lead to making an almost-animation like content without the overwhelming animation knowledge or extremely expensive rig.
>>38072310Would you mind elaborating on that a bit? Do you just pitch up the reference audio to the same general range you're trying to get an output for?
>>38074461>In exchange, I will:>1. Quit all Noxfag shitposting forever. I will even delete my signature pic and post video if that is requested.Nice.>2. Quit the PPP thread for an undisclosed amount of time, measured in months. (Permanent expulsion is not on the table)Don't do this please.>3. Apologize for calling passionate anons evil and raiders, and retract said accusations.I don't really care about this.I'm not one of the people flinging shit at you and Cookie all day though, so this isn't going to change anything. It's been obvious for a while now that people are just manufacturing anger for the sake of drama, and that no one actually knows what you supposedly did to kill a bunch of waifu generals. It's also obvious from other threads that there are enough people even on this board that genuinely hate the people working on the PPP, so I'm not that surprised.
Alright, here's the ACTUAL content:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D54oMpCAp0wThe last one was a prank hehe got you guys Probably the heaviest metal song I've made thus far. I guess this is a song about an alternate take on Glimmyville where the M6 get indoctrinated. I originally wanted to have Glimmy sing it but there's not enough data for a singing model of her.>>38075285I've gone through tons of them, and out of all I've tested the best ones available are the SHREDDAGE 3 libraries for KONTAKT.https://impactsoundworks.com/series/shreddage-3-series/They're the ones I got for Christmas and the ones I used for that song and this one. They come with some relatively decent amp setups but you'll probably want a proper amp sim plugin like Amplitube or Guitar Rig as well if you're considering grabbing one of them.I don't think you'll find working versions of them on the seven seas, but the previous version, SHREDDAGE 2, isn't too far behind in quality, and is more 'widely available'.>>38074778Absolutely fantastic work on this.
>>38075906>Don't do this please.Fuck off, you don't speak for us. I want Noxfag gone forever. I'm not the only one who wants this.
>>38076154>willing to drop the bad but keep the goodThis is like the ideal outcome, assuming he actually follows through with it.
>>38076232Noxfag's shitty DeltaVox model does not justify all the bad he has done. He has shown time and time again that he is a deceitful, manipulative cheat. There is no doubt in my mind that everything that he has written is all a lie. The fact that people are still entertaining anything that he says instead of simply ignoring all of his posts is disheartening.The further the PPP disassociates itself from Delta, the better.
>>38076249I agree. What Cookie did pales in comparison to what Delta/Noxfag did to /mlp/ as a whole. I don’t think Cookie deserves to be shunned (though he should seriously tone down on the annoying namefagging if he isn’t doing any work for the PPP), but I wholeheartedly support the permanent exile of Noxfag. He needs to go.
>>38076249Permanently remove Delta, keep Cookie. That’s the best compromise, in my opinion.
>>38075906>Don't do this please.He should wait for things to cool down and anger to subside before posting again.
>>38073174>>38073888I've made some too, which I've added to my channel. Though looking back on it, that was 2 months ago now, I really need to get back into it. Just been so busy trying to separate MAS data. Afterwards I'll do something, maybe I'll attempt to ponify this: https://youtu.be/WA34HiMl3lE, probably twilight considering some of the lyrics contain "magic".>>38074778Happy to help, even if it was only the last week of the entire month you spent on it, lol. Glad it turned out so great!On a semi-unrelated note, I'll send you my separated Greg Commentaries I've done so far later today. It's about 25 minutes worth, bear in mind that while the separation is perfect (as I've separated based on spectrogram analysis), there's a decent amount (5%?) of files that have been misnamed (don't know how what > don't know what | I believe though always > I believe though it always | etc.), so there's a bunch of manual reviewing to be done before transcription, otherwise it'll be inaccurate.>>38075942Personally not into the heavier metal genre myself, but great work as always BGM.What's the next genres on your list? Would be interesting to hear an AJ country song, or Pinkie with 90s Dance/Electronic kinda music (Like "Better Off Alone", Eiffel 65's songs, and "Rhythm Is A Dancer")
>>38076339Or he can just anonymously until the dramafags leave. Nothing obligates him to use a name. The only thing he maintains that's identifiably associated with him is DeltaVox. He could give us a ponepaste account we can monitor for DeltaVox updates, and do everything else anonymously.
>>38076511Okay, serious question to everyone here:Does anyone here actually use DeltaVox over TalkNet or 15.ai?
>>38074778Separated MAS Greg Commentaries, Episodes 1 through 6. Over 20 minutes worth of clean workable data.https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Om7-puxSZZeU7_l-T4o2yMPnsSMoyuam/view?usp=sharingNOTE: Some of the file names are super long, so if on Windows it needs to be in the highest drive Directory as possible: C:\, D:\, M:\, S:\, etc.In fact, one was so long I couldn't actually complete it, even though it was only 9 seconds of audio: "00_00_00_MAS Greg_Neutral__But I had been working I'd been trying to work with another group and there was just so much in fighting and conflict and they weren't getting anything done and I was frustrated so I just ().wav" so yeah, just keep that in mind.As mentioned earlier, may not have correct word for word naming. Also I should mention some additional directories and their contained contents.O = Other (Strange and un-transcribeable, but funny enough to still share)U = Unsure (Potentially useable, uncertainties of emotion, ability to transcribe, etc.), W = Whisper (Whispered and low volume lines, which I don't think would be usable for a standard speaking model, but useful for an eventual Whisper/ASMR Greg model.)Also geez, apparently I hadn't used my share drive since 6 months ago. Was it really that long ago when I trained that 48k MMI Athena? Wow, time sure flies here.
>>38076526No, I pretty much only use 15.ai for my projects (and sometimes TalkNet for the rare occasion I need singing voices).I haven’t touched the ngroks in a very long time and I haven’t ever used DeltaVox ever.
>>38076526Not anymore, I'd guess. But there's still a niche use case for DeltaVox or Ngroks and that's getting voices that aren't on 15's site or in Talknet.
>>38076526What about the GPT-J model?
>>38076566That doesn’t do voices though, right?
>>38076566That's a separate issue. Delta can maintain those anonymously. Multiple people have contributed to those, and an anonymous person maintaining those scripts could easily be someone other than Delta.
>>38076568No. But if your conversation is about Delta's contributions in general it may be relevant.
>>38076526I use deltavox for specifically for the auto clipboard setting it's good for quick voice things like visual novelshttps://github.com/renpy/renpy/issues/423but I would love if it worked with talknet
>>38076576But do people use GPT-J for their projects anyway? I can’t think of a use case for that.
>>38076594People definitely use it for their ""projects"" alright. They don't talk about it often but it's infinitely cheaper than getting smut commisioned.
>>38076594The point of the question is to figure out how difficult it would be for Delta to continue his work here anonymously for a while. I'm curious to know which models people use in their projects other than the obvious 15.ai and TalkNet, but that question deserves its own poll.
>>38076526I do, but mostly because their Athena model with DeltaVox is better quality that the MMI models I've made."I'm AI-thena" https://u.smutty.horse/mfdpnssbcju.wav"It's so lovely to meet you" https://u.smutty.horse/mfdpntafdwl.wav"I'm doing well for being ..." https://u.smutty.horse/mfdpmyqhxyh.mp3Some strange quirks happen too, like one time Athena developed a kind of British Accent randomly for a line, lol.Or just other general fails sometimes, but that's normal for most TTS pony models."That was strange": https://u.smutty.horse/mfdpnkfqqob.wav "Mmm spicy lemonade": https://u.smutty.horse/mfdppkfmvvr.wavSo long as even just one high quality pony is preserved through it, that's worth it.>>38076594Busy with data separation, but I do have plans for ponies voicing narratives written by GPT-J with minimum prompting for completely silly and chaotic stories. But ordered enough to still be a follow-able narrative. But yeah, still on the back-burner at the moment, just like my TalkNet song creation.
>>38076554Let's make this poll more easily visible:https://strawpoll.com/ro5uk3jv1> https://strawpoll.com/ro5uk3jv1https://strawpoll.com/ro5uk3jv1> https://strawpoll.com/ro5uk3jv1https://strawpoll.com/ro5uk3jv1> https://strawpoll.com/ro5uk3jv1
>>38076629>inb4 Delta brigades the poll for DeltaVox
>>38076656DeltaVox just went from 0 to 2 votes as soon as this was posted, kek
>>38076629I think we have enough of an answer.>>38074461Can you continue contributing but drop the name and the flag for a while? For your GPT-J scripts, just fork them and maintain the fork. DeltaVox will be harder to maintain anonymously, but can you give us a ponepaste we can monitor for DeltaVox updates? Don't post your DeltaVox updates in the thread. Someone else here can keep the thread up-to-date with those updates. I'll try to do it if no one else does. For anything else you want to do, just do it anonymously.I haven't seen any objection to your other two points. Stop the shitposts, assuming you haven't already. If you're going to post on other threads, contribute in a less shitty way.I don't see any point in you apologizing to the other shitposters here. Just apologize for muddling the situation and fanning the flames earlier in this debacle. If anyone objects to you staying around, they'll either have to shut the fuck up or chase away every anonymous GPT-J contributor.
>>38076695No one uses DeltaVox enough to justify updating it.
>>38076695He can open source it. I would love to see a linux fork maintained by another anon
I just wish 15 would post in these threads moreI miss him
>>38076751I think they're just burnt out from their big release. They also haven't made a post on Twitter since mid-December.They're either working to add more characters with little progress, or they're taking a well deserved break. Neither of which they believe would be enough to warrant a post.
>>38076751I don't really care how often he posts, I just wish he'd finish the paper and released the code already.>>38076772He was never one to post in the PPP thread for extended periods of time. He lurks/lurked it (sometimes?) and posted the test sites asking for feedback but other than that he tended to not post much.>theyPlease don't be fucking ridiculous
>>38076789>TheyHaha, woops my bad, I always tend to use "they" out of habit when referring to someone, mostly as it's the more gender neutral term and applicable to both.That habit ain't gonna break any time soon, a flaw developed from childhood. So if I say they, assume I mean he/she unless it's unclear, then it's just them anyways.
>>38076789>>they>Please don't be fucking ridiculousTo be fair, using "they" as a singular gender-neutral pronoun is pretty common nowadays and has been used since the 1400s.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singular_theyIn this case though it is silly to use that when 15 is clearly a guy.
>>38075828Depends, on this one I'm using +40% pitch based on deep male voices:https://u.smutty.horse/mfdqieooexz.mp3 - TS Normalhttps://u.smutty.horse/mfdqievzarp.mp3 - TS +40https://u.smutty.horse/mfdqifcozxy.mp3 - RD Normalhttps://u.smutty.horse/mfdqifjhasv.mp3 - RD +40https://u.smutty.horse/mfdqifxedgz.mp3 - AJ Normalhttps://u.smutty.horse/mfdqifpyufj.mp3 - AJ +40Haven't tried female voices yet but seems to work better here for pronunciation, even if they start humming some of the words.
>>38074774Sweet!It was nice to listen too, and the quality is really polished
>>38077052So I heard these and liked them enough that I thought "Fuck it, I'll give commentary separation a break and try out another TalkNet song" And holy fuck, apparently MC Frontalot + Singing Twilight = Singing Trixie! Or well, it sounds more like Trixie than Twi at least anyways.I'll refer to this as Singing Twixie for now. But it turned out better than expected:Twixie - MC Frontalot - First World Problem: https://u.smutty.horse/mfdrurnssfg.mp3(Contains some Dash too)
>>38074778That's awesome. Nicely done, and thanks to all the anons that made the streams so comfy.Good choice with the dartboard.>>38074774That's some high-quality pranking. I love your lyrics.>>38075942Glimmy should have gotten a cutie mark in guitar riffing. That's some intense guitaring.
>>38068039- [Done] I updated my template-based output code. I factored out the part that could be generic to a lot of datasets and added the necessary customizations for fimfarchive.- [In progress] Now I just need to create the v3 colab script.
>>38076526I use it because it is local generation.But I really miss the flexibility of the raw python version that I could freely modify to export whatever I want in addition to sound or to some extent; command line call.
>>38076736>He can open source it.It is open source, unless I'm mistaken.https://github.com/ZDisket/TensorVox
>>38077538Talknet also runs locally after you download the models once. It still uses the web browser instead of a dedicated program for GUI but it's functionally the same thing.
>>38077620Remember that Talknet requires a newer nvidia gpu. Deltavox can run on the cpu.
>>38077666Remember that DeltaVox is a piece of shit
And now NFTs are monetizing on PPP. We've made it, boys.
>>38077399that's twilight no doubt
>>38078696Another 3-month outage of 15.ai for "upgrades" incoming.
>15 has logged every racial slur I've put in 15.aiNice
>>38078696>>38078793Holy fuck, you guys don't understand how big this is getting.
>>38078793I swear NFT niggers are the biggest cancer of this age
>>38079101>>38079102Jinx, buy me a Coke.
Well, this is an interesting start of the year.
I'm convinced now that NFTs stand for "No Fucking Talent", because the people who steal/distribute them clearly have none of their own.First uber and now this, seems everyone wants a piece of 15 these days. Times like these I'm glad 15ai is closed source, so that thefts like these are only surface scrapes.
>>38079395>Times like these I'm glad 15ai is closed sourceHonestly this.
>>38076526I use Talknet because i can voice act references, and the result is way better than 15.ai could ever be.
>>38076526I use TalkNet because I can run it on my own hardware.
>>38078793>>38079101>>38079102This is currently the biggest happening on Twitter right now. It’s featured on the fucking front page of Twitter, for Christ’s sake. How is no one talking about this here?
>>38079833I generally don't care about what goes on in Twitter. Also 15 is sort of a separate project from here.
>>38079833>twitter dramaDon't care.
>>38079843Neither do I, but I thought some anons would be interested in discussing the future impact that NFTs might have when it comes to vocal synthesis. It’s just weird seeing a ghost town in the very thread that 15.ai debuted.
>>38079861this isn't discord m8, unless 15 drops in all the 10s data set character models there isn't much reason to carry on talking about his twitter posts.
>>38079833There's really not much to say. I don't give a fuck about anything other than 15 telling some scam artist to go fuck themselves.The thing the scam artist was proposing was both hilarious and nonsensical.
>>38079885It’s not just any scam artist though, the reason this is gaining so much traction is that the scam artist partnered with a huge voice actor (I don’t know who he is personally but I can tell he’s very much well known by the normies) who endorsed them less than 24 hours ago.
>>38079902>It’s not just any scam artist though>It's mr. Big Dick Scam ArtistAnd? How does it impact PPP:V or the Pony Preservation Project in general?
>>38079911It sure is hell of a lot better than responding to another of Delta’s shitposts.
>>38079911What else do you propose the thread talk about then? Tulips?
>>38079929So just do neither of those. The Delta drama was at least PPP relevant.>>38080022New pony AI projects as they show up, new content, those kinds of things. Some threads are less active than others and that's completely fine as long as work is getting done.Better to bump the thread once in a while than it is to fill it with pointless dramafagging.
>>38080022How about figuring out ow to get that DeepSpeed code work on colab with Gpt-Neo models to get offline text ponies for everyone?
>>38079584I mean...I don't think this is really arguable?15.ai:https://u.smutty.horse/mfeacfkrert.mp3TalkNet:https://u.smutty.horse/mfeacfqkhxy.mp3I don't understand how anyone could reasonably argue that the first is better than the second.
>>38080892I agree that TalkNet sounds better than the current 15.ai outputs, but>and the result is way better than 15.ai could ever bemight be taking it a little too far. I think it's definitely possible for 15.ai to match or surpass that quality in the future.
>>38080921No one asked you
>>38080892Mileage will vary with TalktNet. You gotta get it to work first and get past that initial tech barrier of entry. Then you gotta have a voice that plays well with the reference input mechanic, which not everyone can pull off.
>>38080926NTA but yes, for a lot of Anons 15.ai will be better. However if you have a good mic and VA experience then TalkNet tends to outperform 15.ai, which is something >>38079584 was disputing.
>>38080926>Then you gotta have a voice that plays well with the reference input mechanic, which not everyone can pull off.You don't have to use reference audio, I generally don't.
>>38080934My voice doesn’t work well with talknet, sounds like a robot
>>38080892Your samples are always very natural in terms of audio quality, but the first clip just sounds more "Twilight" to me, even if it's more noisy and the intonation is wrong in some places. It might be the faster pace, the rising intonation of "What are you talking" and "in this thread", the brightness (?), or something else. Regardless, the second one feels like an alternate universe Twilight or something.
>>38080926>get past that initial tech barrier of entryLiterally running a colab.I tried to run it on Linux and failed due to Nvidia docker not supporting Mint so I switched to a Windows machine and the offline version installed just fine by double clicking the setup.exe and following the instructions on screen.
>>38080935The quality of TalkNet without reference is on par or under 15.ai quality. TalkNet with a good reference audio will absolutely beat out 15.ai, but there are a lot more variables to consider.
>watch YongYea while eating breakfast>learn about thisGod damn it. I can't escape PPP drama for five minutes.
>>38080947https://u.smutty.horse/mfeagksfiod.wav> Are you kidding? I've totally let ponies down. That's not the point.Closest file I could find in the dataset.Personally, I think TalkNet has the win in audio quality/accuracy of the voice, but the speed of the speech is a little off.
.>>38080892TalkNet requires audio reference in order to potentially surpass 15ai. Without using audio reference TalkNet generates the same output for a specific prompt, and that's it.15ai on the other hoof can generate infinite usable lines with the same prompt, and may have a more natural sounding vocal direction that you would've chosen otherwise with reference audio.Just remember though, that just because one is better, doesn't make the second bad. Both are incredibly useful for what their strengths are.TalkNet's strengths: Singing ponies and very specific vocal and emotional direction. Ponifying memes and other voices using it's original audio.15ai: Fast and effective with no voice input required. Generating NVs. And pretty much everything else that TalkNet hasn't covered.
>>38080981Definitely hearing more issues in this one. Do you use TalkNet often? I'm curious what in specific causes the audio to momentarily go to shit.
Honestly though, this whole TalkNet vs 15ai thing is honestly kinda silly. TalkNet users be like "I'm taller than you 15ai, 'cause I'm on stilts!"
>>38078793Holy fucking basedFuck both Troy Baker and Vanessa Hudgens for different mlp related reasons The more I am finding out about this the more I am seething Does anyone have a clip of the dash voice they pitched up?
>>38080983Is Troy actually a big deal somewhere? I've never heard of him before but this video makes him out to be a big deal.
>>38081070yeah he the voice for Joel in the Last of Us so I guess you could say he's kind of a big deal
>>38081072I've never played last of us, so I guess that explains it.
>>38081072The last of us 2 looks so boring that I couldnt even be bothered to pick up a copy Its so funny and ironic, fuck SCEA they shit on pony music And Troy is just the useful idiot
>>38081070> He is known for his video game roles as Joel Miller in The Last of Us (2013) and its sequel (2020), Talion in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor (2014) and Middle-earth: Shadow of War (2018), Batman/Bruce Wayne in Batman: The Telltale Series (2016) and Batman: The Enemy Within (2017), Pagan Min in the Far Cry franchise, the Joker in Batman: Arkham Origins (2013), the Arkham Knight in Batman: Arkham Knight (2015), Yuri Lowell in Tales of Vesperia, Samuel "Sam" Drake in Uncharted 4: A Thief's End (2016) and The Lost Legacy (2017), Booker DeWitt in BioShock Infinite (2013), Kanji Tatsumi in Persona 4, Jake Muller in Resident Evil 6 (2012), Vincent Brooks in Catherine (2011), Delsin Rowe in Infamous Second Son (2014), Rhys in Tales from the Borderlands (2014), Revolver Ocelot in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (2015), Higgs Monaghan in Death Stranding (2019), Simon Krieger in Spider-Man: Miles Morales (2020), and John "Jonesy" Jones in Fortnite (2021).That's just some of his more well-known gaming roles.
>>38081098>All those games and I haven't played oneI guess I just don't play many games in general.
>>38081049If your goal is to fake a character's voice by any means necessary and not to great good text-to-speech specifically, it's not cheating.
>>38081098Okay his performance in Far Cry was kino as fuck, I sided with Pagan on my first playthrough and the based director of Far Cry 4 Hutchinson got my back with a secret ending and everything

hello anons, i have not been on this board in many years now since i kinda dropped the show and 4chan because of uni but i have seen some of the stuff you guys have made and i just wanted to give all you guys a big thank you, not only do i get to enjoy the pones again but i also get to enjoy the cool parts of /mlp/ greentext stories and other funny, thank you all very much for this, i wont be anymore of a fag just wanted to give a warm thank youalso the new 4chan captcha sucks my fucking nuts

>>38084218A blockchain performs all of the same functions as a database, except that its storage is distributed among multiple nodes instead of a central server. If you subscribe to a service on a website, you get an entry created in the database that records your user ID and the amount of money you paid to subscribe. So it seems to me that Voiceverse is just doing the same thing on a blockchain, something that doesn't NEED to be done on a blockchain.
>>38084425its a scam tho
>>38084438in terms of tech its also dogshit since you can't save a file onto the blockchain only a hyper link so in the "near" future every domain will die and every nft will redirect to either gore or goatsy (god rest his soul)
>>38084444>you can't save a file onto the blockchainyou can though
>>38066365FAGGOT THAT YOU ARE that you cannot imagine a ponification.
>>38084444Quads checked, but that's not true at all. There are many blockchains that allow users to include arbitrary data in a transaction I'd give you examples but I don't want to be accused of being a shill.>>38084218While I certainly understand your frustration (the scene is garbage right now just like it was when BTC started gaining mainstream attention), it's absolutely absurd to say that NFTs are scams. There are many genuine use cases for them that are either in development or already exist but are ignored in lieu of the random jpegs that people like to "invest" in. All that being said, I see no way in which NFTs would actually be useful for this project, so there's really no use in elaborating further.
>>38084556i'm like 80% sure you can't store files (especially image(might just be image didn't look into this in a while)) onto the blockchain bc they are too big to do so and the tech can'(t hold
>>38084302Y'know, when I first joined into the very first threads here, I never thought I'd be seeing AI voice cloning tech that we eventually set the foundations for be thrust into the mainstream by getting into a fight with a bunch of scammers that duped a bunch of major VAs to speak for them. Much less with the AI tech getting open endorsements by people like the Dewrito Pope.It's all getting really surreal and I'm honestly kinda giddy to see where this all goes.
>>38084622You can encode just about any file as text, BTC at least allows you to store a memo with your transactions. Of course the space will likely be limited, but you could always store it across multiple memos if you really wanted to. This is how people managed to get illegal stuff into the Bitcoin blockchain.
https://twitter.com/IlIIlIIIllIllII/status/1479989938993209344AI that can decompile existing animations into regions (based on this dataset https://github.com/lllyasviel/DanbooRegion)Seems its good for colouring images/sketches tooThing is open source too, I wonder if it can be used in our space for something?https://lllyasviel.github.io/Style2PaintsResearch/Or anything listed here?
>>38084836the first thing that comes to mind is to use it with flash leak files, and have it understand the "separation" between main characters, background character, background elements, foregrounds elements and sky, than send those separately to something like "this person dose not exist" to be able to re-compose new scenes (or even go extra mile and train neutralblender / wombo art text-to-image with descriptions of those).
>>38084836Speaking purely from a "civilian" point of view (I.E. I have no knowledge of the intricacies), would it be possible to combine this with an image-generator to essentially tell it to modify only a certain region of an existing picture? Basically a three-step process, you first tell the AI to generate a brand new picture, then run the region-separator, and then tell it to make changes to selected regions.
>>38084388I thought I read on Twitter that the voice was sourced from Rainbow Dash, but that sounds like a modified Twilight Sparkle voice.
>>38084836>>38084927Being able to identify and define body parts, shading and background elements seems incredibly useful.>>38085049So basically what OpenAI's GLIDE can do with it's editing. But with using this Danboo to define the regions and then GLIDE replacing the defined regions with the prompt?
>>38083510>reddit spacingHello intruder: please kill yourself, and your family with it if it's not asking too much.Thanks!
>>38084762do you think that in the future we will have cute little pony on our desktop telling us that its a little late and we should go to bed soon, but not a anon's script being ran more a generated responce from the most complex ai on earth just so the pone we love so much can finally interact with us trough the 4th wall
>>38084836That's awesome. We should be able to create a dataset like this from our current animation data. That could be a starting point for turning every MLP episode into usable data.I swear I'm going to get back to animation soon.>>38066789The script should be ready, but I need to upload a giant folder of txt files for it to work. Google Drive is having problems with that. I tried re-organizing the files to something Google hopefully finds more palatable. I'm heading to sleep now, so I'll need to wait until tomorrow to upload it.
>>38086429Yes that is what I want
>>38086784they called us fags back in the day for loving pones, but everyday we get closer to pones being real, who is laughing now
>>38086791still them desu
>>38086429This is the dream. Preferably cybernetic, though quality hologram would be neat too. Can't really pet a hologram though, unless hologram technology starts giving haptic feedback somehow.
>>38086799yeah :( at least pinkiepie is there to tell me they are losers now
>>38086849in terms of cyberwaifus i always though that having a full human (or pony in this case) robot would be counter intuitive since it would decay over time and just be pretty garbage, but if instead of having that we have multiple parts hooked onto a computer screen maybe a hand that you could hold, or maybe some kind of globe you could pat and then you would have the pony on your computer screen talking to you and reacting to it it would be much easier to replace parts and also more enjoyable as its easier to animate motion on a computer then on a physical robot inb4 fleshlight add-on
>>38086791normies will side with Troy Baker in order to block us from making ponies real
>>38086868its ok anon troybaker is a certified cuck thanks to the last of us 2, a lot of normies hate him because of that and a lot more normie hate him thanks to the nft, i'm genuinely happy to see his career go down the drain since he has always been a huge cuck
>>38086863>Robot would decay over timeDecays? What do you think we plan to make our robot waifus out of? Bread sticks and lettuce?In all seriousness, a well constructed android would last longer than organics would.
real question, do you guys think we could animate a fully original episode of mlp someday ? we have the voices but the script writting/animation/story board etc might need to be done by hand since i don't think an ai could generate all of that (just yet) what do you guys think ? i have been thinking about it a little and honestly i started writting an episode similar to the pinkie sense one since the way its structured its a bunch of random scenes put together that can easely be taken out or put back in if you run out of time or need some filler. what do you guys think ? good idea or not yet or stupid idea.the episode is about applejack needing to take over rarity's shop for a day and she spend the entire time fucking it up and running it like a farm like i said nothing special just a little stupid thing
>>38086893yes look at what forga can do by themselves also the official show assets leaked
>>38086891>dying and leaving your pone to fend for herselfshame on you anonthe main problem with robots is that they don't heal anon, if your robot walks on a nail that hole will never be fixed unless you weld it shut and that could cause more issues, unless the android is made out of parts you can take out and replace and based on how this retarded world works they wont be, also if we go with my approach you could probably DIY your own pony
>>38086893It's definitely possible, but it's up to us to make the tech a reality.Just one more step on the journey to making our ponies real.Currently, voice imitation. Next, storyboarding, animation, story writing. Eventually, cybernetic pony waifus with truly conscious pony AI that loves you.>>38086904>Dying and leaving your poneIf it comes to the point of making pony waifus real. It could come to a point of consciousness transfer, in which case could have a separate cybernetic pony body to claim as your own and be with your mare forever as pone.>Walks on a nail leaving a permanent holeAgain, such a pony android wouldn't be made to be so frail to be prone to injury and decay. There's already technologies for self healing fabrics, and materials that are light and durable but many times stronger than steel. You just need good engineering and materials.
>>38086927what about robomare nfts where each one could be a robomare nft that you could combine together to create new robomare nfts
>>38086927soon robomares will be real and after that we can all just be happy and not lonely and also not need to ever talk to women ever again (good ending)
>>38086893If you want to do it on your own, it's possible, but it takes a lot of time and effort. I learned how to use flash and participated in the /mlp/ makes mlp threads a while ago to see what it was like. It's a pretty slow process, even with tweening. Depending on what's happening, it can usually take hours for less than 30 seconds of animation. It took me 3 hours to animate 10 seconds with 4 ponies onscreen. I kind of gave up and stopped doing it because I was convinced Synthbot would make me obsolete by the time I finished anything significant.If you want to make a full episode, I don't know if you can rely on /mlp/ to help you animate. Last time it didn't go so well. Yes you will need a storyboard so you can be more efficient.
>>38086990yeah ill probably go for animatic and not full blown animation since in my experiance that shit is time consuming and usually just looks worst anyway, thank you for the tips though anon :)
>>38086997Instead of a full animation, you could try doing something simpler like I did for the Twilight Drunkle video >>38074778. It's essentially selecting appropriate vector images, moving them around the scene and making them jump up and down whenever a character is speaking. I demonstrated what I was doing in the streams but I'd be happy to help with more demos if you need. Just make sure you don't use Blender to make the video, I learned the hard way that it's not really designed to handle that sort of thing.
>>38087212>make sure you don't use Blenderwhy not ? (i use blender a lot)
>>38087243I don't have much experience in video editing, and even less in animating, so I can't be 100% sure. The blender experts in the stream chat suspected it was something to do with the stupid number of layers I needed to use to make everything work, probably around 50 in total. My guess is that Blender just isn't optimised for dealing with that many layers of transparent PNG images, such that it would frequently stutter heavily in the preview window and that rendering this nine-minute video took ~30 hours.
Guys, it's fucking happening. Troy Baker himself started following 15's Twtitter.
>>38086893>script writtingWait a second, do the Master file mega even have the original scripts from the FiM leaks?If that's the case we could have a set up data set for the future text ai based on question-answers type except instead of giving it questions we would give it short description from the show and in place on answer we would paste the corresponding writers script scene, than we could teach it to convert any fanfic that goes in to proper show script style.
>>38087629training the ai to write script is a really really smart idea, even if its not voiced generating fanfics ai would be a blessing
>>38087629>>38087649Thats fucking smartDo we have anybody who writes show scripts who can give us some tips or point out things that FiM does uniquely compared to other shows like we had that voicefag break down and analyze each of the mane 6's accents in the early threads?
>>38087649https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-uDnlGJRdkhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-8gUfOTZu4AI writing stories isn't anything new by now, it just matter of getting the pony text sorted and trained.
>>38087747yeah ai generated text is pretty normal now its more getting the mlp feel to it that will be hard.
WH40k is woke-dead. Post machine praises.
>>38088466>40kBut what if I want Battletech ponies ?
>>38086429There are people on /robowaifu/ working on making physical poners real. It will take a long time before their realism is comparable to our current voices, but I believe they will get there. As long as they have people dedicated to accomplishing meaningful tasks and as long as they're able to keep up with relevant research, I have no doubt that they'll eventually succeed. I help out with small things where I can, though my main project is the PPP. I think the absolute best thing you can do right now to help make robopony a reality is catch up & keep up with state-of-the art, teach other people and help them build intuition, learn what other people are doing, replicate what other people have done, and keep trying to progress what's doable.>>38086893One day, yes. Coherence in scriptwriting and scene direction will be difficult, but I think the necessary research will exist within a few years. It may take several years more to piece everything together into one giant pipeline, but I think we can do it.I like your episode idea.>>38086990Even if we can automate animation, we'll want people with experience and expertise in animation. A VA & sound engineer is finding ways to improve TalkNet output even though we've had speech AI for years. I expect the same will be true with animation AI. There's only so much we can do with data and AI algorithms alone, at least with current algorithms. Expertise and familiarity with the actual task is still invaluable.>>38087629That's a great idea. I don't know how we're going to turn story prose into scripts, but maybe eventually we can turn all show episodes into scripts.
>>38089064maybe we could take like season one and just write the script ourselves and use that ? or do we want the real thing
>>38082021I don't understand how to read this.
big black nigga balls hdhttps://u.smutty.horse/mfewwgxomye.mp4
>>38088512Heard about it. Give a ponified QRD.
>>38089091That would work. I don't see any reason why the original script would necessarily be better than one we create. It would just take a lot more time.
>>38091109I don't think I've seen many people on /mlp/ being interested in it but personally I don't think ponifining it would be that difficult (well, other than it's set in hard sci-fi with space travel and mechas), setting already have population living in feudalism society and there is a good amount of math involved in the game itself to make all the tabletop math autist happy with ability to make it more or less complex depending on how much rules you want to stuff your game with.
Hey, Fifteen.I don't know if you're lurking in here, but karma's a bitch, ain't it?
>>38091764i don't get the whole 15 drama is he a dick or something ? can someone spoonfeed me on this
>>38086893One day. Soon.
>>38091795basically someone stole 15’s work for use in a voice nft thing
>>38091851yeah i saw that but why is everyone so against him, i see people who are ok with him and use his website and i see people who just hate his guts and idk what to think of him since i don't know anything about him
>>38091892Some people are pissed he doesn't want his voice used in combination with other TTS engines, some people hate that he includes other media besides FiM for his TTS, some think he just acts like a dick.I dunno, I think he's cool.
>>38091892They're pissed off by his Twilight pic and are seething about how someone that likes mlp did something they would never be able to do.
>>38091898yeah that whole part about how you can't use his TTS with other TTS seems kind of over the top but to be fair his website is good enough to not need another TTS to be added (even though the 200 character limit sucks my nuts)>>38091899to be fair twilight sparkle is the worst pone after RD
>>38091917If you ever get close to 200 characters then that means you don't know how to use the site. It's 15's last line of defense against retards.
>>38091986i use the website well enough i think the problem is that i try to craft big blocks of text since they are easier to edit for me but when i do that i never have enough space for the "| i love you" for the right intonation you also have a limit on how many . you can put which makes it a lil hard to create nice natural pauses in the dialogue, but i'm a massive retard to fair enough
>>38091917>>38091992While I do agree that the DeepMoji part shouldn't count towards the character limit. Unless you have a long emotional prompt to go with a long spoken prompt, you shouldn't be hitting the cap anyways. It's preferable to generate shorter sentences and listen for the tone and combine them later in something like Audacity. Only down side with that is it takes longer, as you'd want to listen out for the tone and pitches of the combined pre-divided parts so they more or less match. Otherwise it'll sound unnatural.Just a little punctuation can add decent enough pauses in dialogue. And you can extend and/or shorten the duration via editing.Also bear in mind the DeepMoji emotional prompt can also affect the output's overall pacing and tone. So adjust it as needed to get the flow you want.
>>38066365They hated him because he told the truth
>>38092030>Unless you have a long emotional prompt to go with a long spoken promptDoes this ever happen? For the emotional contextualizers I found it better to stick to short and clear sentences and re-generate until it a correct mix. And for longer sentences, 15's models tend to speed up too much when given long sentences without punctuation. If you have to insert comas anyways you might as well split the longest sentences into two separate prompts for easier pacing&emotion control.
>>38092030alright here is my issue with this and its probably just a me problem, but i have a hard time listening to a sentance then listening to another sentance and being able to tell if they go well together unless i export it then put it in audacity then listen to both of them back to back which i use to do but it took me hours of generating over and over and over again and then downloading and putting it all on audacity, that's why i like to do big blocks since it still takes a while but its doesn't take me as much time but i'm not even against the limit in itself i just wish it was like 600 characters even 400 would be enough since i just need to fit in a few more words
>>38091898I used to get angry that he was catering to SpongeBob mouthbreathers but that was before I got redpilled on him and his plans
>>38092111trips checkwhat happend exactly this is really interesting to my autist brain
>>38091764What did he do wrong lolAnd besides all I see is love for 15 after he called the scammers out, dunno how this is karma
>>38091917He is so strict about this rule that he shut down the redub
twitter fags complaining about how 15 stole voices and should've asked VAs for consent first. you just can't win with these people.
>>38092167it's why you ignore everything they say and keep a minimal eye on what they do so the hammer can be brought down as needed
>>38092167That shit is already sorted, we don't credit every violinist who helped record the staccato patch in the sample library every single time and place the patch is used, and it certainly hasn't taken their jobs. These people are slow to the mark.
>>38092126Lurk more. PPP projects have the permission to mix 15.ai with other PPP tts.
>>38092203And yet there haven't been anymore redub episodes Checkmate
>>38092215i really like this image
>>38092052Not just commas. Periods are important too. As for speeding up with longer inputs, selecting a lower "energy" emotion tends to balance it out.>>38092100I usually playback a good downloaded sample in VLC then play the clip in browser immediately afterwards. Saving what sounds similar enough and repeating more generations until I get at least like... 3 good ones. Then I select the best and splice the two, with appropriate spacing/delays.>400-600 limitStill think 200 is perfectly fine.
>>38092437alright that vlc idea is actually really smart i'm going to try that, but i understand that the limit is an issue for no one but me don't worry, especially with bots since its easier to make a sentence when its cut into parts then when its one big thing
Another useful reason for shorter sentencing is getting batch samples using adequate punctuation to separate, all while using the same emotion. That way you can triple (or more) the chances of getting the line you want in the same amount of time.Fluttershy:"You mean like this?" (3rd in batch, enthusiasm) - https://u.smutty.horse/mffdisktkti.wav"What do you mean?" (2nd in batch, confused but interested) - https://u.smutty.horse/mffdieqewxz.wav"It's it in yet?" (2nd in batch, soft teasing) - https://u.smutty.horse/mffdgacpclz.wav
"What do you mean?", actually 3rd in batch.
https://u.smutty.horse/mfehtrqwqxz.mp3bump but also a question, anyone is working on any new skits/audio episodes/datasets ?
Hello PPP. I recently acquired a bd quality rip of Rainbow Roadtrip, with a 5.1 audio track track. I hope it's useful.https://resources.pink.horse/rr.5.1.audio.ac3
Yo BGM, you around? Which mares are singing in the chorus of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aEZ3TrCNqVM ?
>>38093549Taking a few days off having just finished my most recent audio thing. Will come back and start doing something else soon, probably either more RDP/MAS audio work as and when Hazy finishes his work separating it, any general audio/image/animation data work as advised by AI anons, or some other audio thing if neither of those are viable at the time.>>38093698Rainbow Roadtrip has been one of the problematic sources, I think it's mixed in the same way as the movie was, which means the standard method we use to remove the music by manipulating the music stereo track doesn't work. I've had a quick look at your source and it seems to have the same problem, so unless someone who actually knows about audio engineering says otherwise, it unfortunately doesn't look like this'll be useful.

Can I have some suggestion from codefags, randomly the anaconda decided to just throw a error 5 no access at me, I've uninstall it and reinstall the whole thing but this keeps happening whenever I try to install a module (it was working just fine few days ago), I am running the cmd as administrator so I do not see how or why I am not allowed to access anything from it.
I hope 15 doesn't give up on his work after this NFT bullshit. I see NFTs as a trend that'll pass in a year or two once everyone realizes how bullshit it all is, and 15's going to be one of the people who come out of it getting the last laugh. I really love his work and love using it to make fun audios, and I really hope he doesn't decide to quit because some cunts decided to ruin it for everybody.If 15 ever reads this, you're making real great strides with your work; I hope you realize that and don't let this shit drag you down. Keep going and don't give up, no matter what.
>>38095066I doubt he will.
>>38094833I think I've solve this problem for now with changing the location of TEMP folder and adding Variable TMPDIR that leads to it as well, than changing that folder properties to turn off the "Read-Only" option.https://stackoverflow.com/questions/59522627/how-to-set-up-the-temp-dir-path-in-python
>>38095164I really hope that's the case. His work in the last two years alone has been revolutionary in the realm of AI voices, and it would be a shame if this momentary trend was enough to get him to stop. I've been more hopeful of pony and technology in general because of him and the Anons on this thread, and it would devastate me if he stopped.
>>38095257He retweeted a couple of supportive tweets at him, so that's encouraging.
my fantasy is mareshttps://u.smutty.horse/mffiicowsob.mp3
>>38095781Forgot to mention that pic related is not a pic of the tweet linked, but an old tweet from the same guy from a few months ago.Cookie, you need to stop making friends with these people.
>>38095781>>38095783That's actually a good thing, isn't it? This fag has just indirectly discredited his last message.
>>38095793I'm not sure. Something is really weird with this guy. He knew that Cookie was telling people in Discord that 15.ai was just Tacotron/Mellotron (which Cookie has since apologized for, I think?), so he wasn't just spouting complete made up bullshit in the earlier tweet.But now that it's been revealed that Cookie does indeed hate 15, these tweets seem a lot more sinister and malicious.
>>38095807>revealed that Cookie does indeed hate 15Wait, really? When did this happen?
while all this drama between the creator of the tts happen i'm using every recources made to make porn with my fav pones, this is heaven
>>38095783>Cookie, you need to stop making friends with these people.I'm not friends with this person. Seriously, I cannot find anybody with this name that I've ever talked to.I also just checked every single time I've used the word "Mellotron" and I can't find a case of it being in reference to 15's architecture.Simply put; This is bullshit and I'm 90% sure I've never said it.If I DID say it then I'm a fucking idiot and I'm sorry.>>38095807>these tweets seem a lot more sinister and malicious.Yeah, I believe this tweet was actually one of the reasons 15 stopped communications with me (though I have nothing to prove it).>>38095816I'd like to clarify, I mainly dislike the closed-source nature of his work and the way he promotes it. His actual models are good and I'm definitely jealous of his ability to write a good looking/functioning website.
>>38095838your name sounds like cockie haha
>>38095838Maybe you could try messaging him on Twitter to get to the bottom of this. He keeps bringing you up in his Tweets so you have to be involved somehow.
>>38095857I don't know how to use Twitter. I uh... don't actually know how to send a Tweet to someone.I also don't like this guy, so going out of my way to learn how to talk to him isn't really something I want to do.
>>38095861If I’m not mistaken you can just go to his profile and click on the little mail icon near the top.
>>38095869I don't see anything like that unless I'm blind?
>>38095881I guess he has messages disabled then. I think you can Tweet at him by making a new tweet and starting it with “@(handle here)”, you could ask him to enable DMs that way.
>>38095884I can't even find the tweet in >>38095781 's pic (I checked around 500 tweets in his history along with find tools and checking 15's replies).I'm not going to bother dealing with this person, but if he uses my name again to claim things do tell me and I will make a statement refuting any inaccurate claims made.
>>38095874i don't think you would like it anon, the one i'm working on right now is a zecora pegging you while making fun of you for not being manly, which is way more funny then i though it would be
>>38095906I mean I think the responsible thing to do is to tell him to quit it because it sounds like he’s doing this on your behalf
>>38095781>some literal who on Twitter said somethingStop trying to revive old fucking drama you literal subhuman
Twilight Bumps the thread:[ https://youtu.be/pIggqw5C-V4 ]
>>38095333oh man, it is pretty top notch quality dude, cant wait for the rest of the song to get finish.
>>38091851I don't see how that's "Karma".
>>38095333Don't know why I expected Lyra to be singing this. Still great though, nice work anon..>>38095848Would that be a Major Mitchel, Pink and Grey Galah or a Red-tailed Black?>>38095927Wow, been a while since I've seen that one. I wonder how today's Twilight and Spike compare.
>>38094833>>38095247Well, ive spend few days hitting my head on the wall trying to figure out why DeepSpeed is not working on my PC even when its installed through command window, so I guess rip ai ponies for now.
>>38096341Do it again, Bomber Spike.
https://u.smutty.horse/mffqwuxbhkc.wav i REALLY liked the idea of pones slowly making us realis why god stays in heaven
hello anons, so i have been going trough this project for a few days now, i'm absolutely amazed by what you guys have achieved and i decided to join sadly i'm not much of a coder so i can't help you with all the technical stuff, i'm a pretty shit tier artist though so i decided to help you guys by dropping random small animations of ponies telling you not to give up from time to time. i hope you enjoy them (they might get better overtime) here is the first animation i have made for you guys.https://u.smutty.horse/mffrgdfnxol.mp4
>>38098483Nice to have you on board, more content is always appreciated and I love seeing anons use it in their own creative ways.>they might get better overtimeThe AI tools are highly capable, so long as you know how to use them properly, which can take some time to learn. What AI tool did you use for your one? It sounds very noisy compared to other recent stuff. For example, here's what I was able to do with 15.ai in ~5 minutes by splicing together different takes, adjusting timing and adding a small bit of reverb.https://u.smutty.horse/mffrkfhlpgs.wav
>>38098581>Nice to have you on boardthank you anoni didn't make the audio i got it from the drive archive with all the audios in it, i saw that one of them was animated so i decided to try to animate more of them, when i said "they might get better overtime" i meant my animation as i do plan to produce at least 1 a week hopefuly, since i really want to be part of this project even though i have a lot of stuff i work on already this is important to me
>>38098616>>38098483BTW this is an open invitation for all of you guys to just go ahead and make small dialogue of characters and i might animate them in the future :)
Trixie - MC Frontalot "Start Over" - WIPhttps://u.smutty.horse/mffsfcfcqmr.mp3
https://arxiv.org/abs/2201.05912Hey Synthbot (and other codefags), here is something that maybe interest you.>Current state of the art acoustic models can easily comprise more than 100 million parameters. This growing complexity demands larger training datasets to maintain a decent generalization of the final decision function. An ideal dataset is not necessarily large in size, but large with respect to the amount of unique speakers, utilized hardware and varying recording conditions. This enables a machine learning model to explore as much of the domain-specific input space as possible during parameter estimation. This work introduces Common Phone, a gender-balanced, multilingual corpus recorded from more than 76.000 contributors via Mozilla's Common Voice project. It comprises around 116 hours of speech enriched with automatically generated phonetic segmentation. A Wav2Vec 2.0 acoustic model was trained with the Common Phone to perform phonetic symbol recognition and validate the quality of the generated phonetic annotation. The architecture achieved a PER of 18.1 % on the entire test set, computed with all 101 unique phonetic symbols, showing slight differences between the individual languages. We conclude that Common Phone provides sufficient variability and reliable phonetic annotation to help bridging the gap between research and application of acoustic models.
>>38098483Thats so lovely anonThank you
>>38099643It looks interesting, though more for speech recognition than speech generation. Usually, the problem with crowdsourced speech data is that the audio quality tends to be highly variable and usually pretty bad. I'm downloading it now to see how it is.
>>38098483I like it. Do you waifu that poner?
>>38099083Continuing on with the WIP Trixie Version of MC Frontalot's "Start Over"Got better results and got about two thirds of it done, parts are hard to impossible due to either poor separation and/or sound effects and harmonies/backing-singers mixed with the vocalshttps://u.smutty.horse/mffuutuitez.mp3Original song for reference: https://youtu.be/cwqxhTTgjKI
>>38100333i don't waifu any poner anon i love them all equally
>>38100864>No waifu'd poner>"I love them all equally">Equally ... EqualityYour waifu poner has just been confirmed
>>38100890maybe the poners will be more happy without cutie marks anon did you ever think that maybe the pony who spends all morning PICKING YOUR TRASH ? THAT MAYBE HE WANTS TO DO SOMETHING ELSE ???
>>38100864It's okay. I'm sure you'll find her one day.
>>38100908i don't think so anon i have been around for a very long time and i have never been able to go "yeah this pony is the best"
>>38100939If you can't find out which pony you think is the best, then you'll just have to wait until there's a pony that thinks you are the best.
>>38101191i would love to see that happen anon, but until then i will continue posting animations for all to enjoy, i do hope i get better at animating overtime so i can make them longer, that shitty 4 frame one i posted took me a solid 2 days to make since i had to learn how to draw ponies lmao
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUGn0cfPUPkHey guys, if anyone is interested I will be trying my hands at streaming in like a bit more than half hour (witch will be 3pm UTC), this is going to be mostly me stress testing equipment and doing the drawing for the "Life on Mars" ponified song from months ago (as im planning to do a more animation related stuff with in streams in the near future) so lets have some fun together and throw ideas at me or just shitpost in chat.
>>38101388ill try to be there fellow contentfag :)
>>38101388so that's result of 4 hours of doodling around, so like I've said I will finish that on my own and next live stream I would expect it to be ready in the blender working on animation for music.
>>38102212i catched a few tid bits of the stream but it was pretty cool :) excited to see more
had a pretty shit day so i decided to draw another animation, please enjoy this just as much as the fluttershy one https://u.smutty.horse/mfgdqgdsjhx.mp4
>>38103742That's really cute.If I had time, I would draw in-betweens for you.Sleep tight purple smart.
>>38103758i wanted to make a few inbetweens for this one but the way i managed layers was an absolute nightmare so i didn't even try, ill try to do that for the next animation, if i can find another small audio in the drive
>>38102212>>38102246Always great to see great work of artsy anons in their element accompanied by pony voices. In a way it so feels like a big collaboration. All the work from the data and code fags creating the models, and the model in turn helping out whoever needs them. Indirect pony collaboration. I really need to get out of my own artists block. Been forever since I've drawn ponies with even a pencil yet alone my tablet. I'll sure to get there eventually.
>>38096341gonna get twilight to bump the thread again
I noticed that this folder is done: https://mega.nz/folder/0UhSmYAB#WBrB-qCprQTofkAhwMp5CQ/folder/4Yp2WKjBWhich one is its replacement? Where are the files now? Is it one of the links in the OP?
>>38104910*gone(not done; typo)
>>38104333i challenege you to a poner off anon, i made two garbage animation, working on a 3rd rarity one right as we speak, will you make even 1????!!!???
The TalkNet colab notebook is failing with a 403 error.The 403 error workaround is also failing with a 403 error.Collab notebook logs: https://ponepaste.org/6805Can someone give technical support for this?
>>38105143Nice try anon, you can't force me out of my procrastination that easily.>>38105322It's working fine for me, so at least we can rule out an issue with the colab itself or it's dependencies.
art anon here again, i decided to make a few more art we can use for the project since there is a lot of moment where its just silent, ill make other pones and i promise they wont look this fucked up since pinkie pie seems to have her head disconnected from her body in this one lmao
I'm late to the party, but man, no wonder 15 hit the fuckin roof. All he's ever asked is that people don't mix his TTS with other TTS stuff and to give credit to 15.ai. That's it. How's that so hard to do?
>>38107736And his pinned tweet lmfao
>>38105350Does it work for you using Colab free?
>>38107955If you're talking about the colab linked in the main doc, yes. I don't have Colab Pro (yet), if that's what you mean by free.
I need your opinion on this matter. One family, who studied/studied psychology (i's complicated) has compiled a sizeable library of genuine, medical schizophrenia. Text and writing, transcribed audio logs, drawings and description (by the patients and professionals), dreams and interpretations, and probably a lot more. With consent, naturally. He intends to feed it all into a deep learning algorithm, to create a like artificially intelligent computer.
>>38108210>He intends to feed it all into a deep learning algorithm, to create a like artificially intelligent computer.AI mimics the data it is fed. Your case would make an artificially schizophrenic computer
>>38108210what do you want to train it for? for voices you need a absolutely cleanses audio with proper pronunciation so random bobbling will probably not make a good dataset, and like anon above said >>38108240 if you put gibberish text for it to learn it will look for pattern from it and give you gibberish back.On unrelated note, if you happen to have any good pdfs for psychology books I would love to have a look at them if thats not too much trouble.
I can upload onto smutty without issue, but where is the link?
>>38108466I've seen that happen sometimes when I use Firefox. What browser are you using?
>>38108240>>38108252I'm afraid to ask. Sometimes he tells little things, mostly things only to disagree with TV or break it.
