Ser0 is a voicebank for the UTAU program.

History

During 2014, Purpled, Migi, Trainspud, and Mina.Ki were working on their own UTAU projects. At the time, Purpled was working on an UTAU known as "Rachel". Rachel was capable of singing in Japanese and was recorded using Purpled's father's iPod. There were other concepts aside from her, but she was the first one taken up as a serious project as Purpled planned to release her.[1][2] Rachel was later scrapped. Instead, she worked on a new character and voicebank known as "Ser" or "Ser0". Ser0 was given an entirely different tone of voice and design. Purpled later notes that Rachel was the closest thing to being Ser0's predecessor.[3]

Through 2016, after the release of Xiao Meihua, production shifted focus to Ser0. Her and JD's productions were hinted to the public through Meihua's Facebook page on May 6, 2016.[4] After learning about English CVVC within UTAU, Purpled was inspired to create her own custom reclist. One of Purpled's focuses was the creation of something more compact and the desire to add less.[5] She aimed to make a small voicebank with multipitch and multitone capabilities so it wouldn't be taxing to the UTAU program. Ser0 is the first UTAU to use this reclist.[6] She initially had three different voicebanks before she was released with only one.[7] The final reclist was built for English, but also supported Spanish.

Ser0 was released on January 1, 2017. Afterwards, there was a desire to list the group's UTAUs under one name. On January 9, 2018, an official website was launched and listed Ser0 and Meihua under the JAE UTAU PROJECT. Ser0 was labeled as JAE-02 respectively. It was later confirmed that Ser0's initial voicebank was an incomplete product, but the results were something that Purpled was proud of.[8]

Ser0 is expected to receive DeepVocal voicebanks along with UTAU.[9]

Concept

Ser0 is a mischievous character.

Etymology

  • Ser0 - A combination of "Ser" and 0". "∅" (null) can also be used in place of "0". The name is similar to the Spanish word "cero".
    • Ser - The Spanish word "to be"
    • 0 - "Zero"
  • Taking these definitions into consideration, her name can be interpreted as a play on for "to be zero" or "to be nothing".
  • She can also be referred to as just "Ser". In this case, her name can be interpreted as "to be" or "to exist".

Appearance

  • Hair color - Black short hair with long side-swept bangs.
  • Eye color - Magenta.
  • Outfit - Ser0 wears a teal strapped dress with a light blue zigzagged pattern running down the front's middle. Rounded light half-circle patterns are found on the sides of the dress. Sharp darker frills flare out the bottom of the dress. She wears pantyhose along with teal ballet flats. A long sleeved black jacket is worn over her dress and its length stops about midway down her back. When closed, the top of her dress could still be seen. The collar of the jacket is buttoned around her neck.
