Samara (サマラ) has had two English voicebanks for the UTAU program, only one is current and distributed.

History

Samara's first voicebank was released on January 7, 2017. The voicebank was encoded/aliased on Cdra's CVVC English reclist and was very low quality. There were many oto, recording, and frq errors that made the bank overall unusable.

Samara's second bank was released on July 9, 2018. She was encoded/aliased on Cz's VCCV reclist. The bank was a much better product, but still had many errors due to being rushed out.

On June 22, 2019, Samara was re-released, fixing the entire bank and correcting oto and frq errors.

Concept

Samara is a Satori that appears in a cursed video. The twist with her is that the video she's in doesn't kill you seven days after viewing it; in fact, she doesn't kill at all. Rather, she shows scary clips until she gets bored or hungry, and asks the person watching for their food. Samara also practices magic and illusions outside of the TV, and carries everything she needs for it and all her valuables in her suitcase. Despite having to fill the role of a cursed entity, she's very happy and upbeat, and easily makes friends with those that see her video, doubly if they have food.

Likes:  Horror films, singing, mind - reading, mist, chips  Dislikes:  Bright sunlight, mud, being dirty
